    SG JZ Alternator Relocation Kit

    I was too impatient to wait for your reply, and money was burning a hole in my pocket. Bought the kit with the belt and paid for shipping. If you feel like refunding me the shipping, cool. If not, no big deal. Looking forward to getting it. I'll probably paint the thing black since the silver is a little too bright and flashy for my liking.

    SG JZ Alternator Relocation Kit

    I would definitely buy this solely for the fact that it would make my thick 4 gauge wire I have running around the block from the alternator to the starter much shorter. I agree with gordo, it would look much better anodized black. I have the XM ac delete kit, which uses a different belt than stock. I'm assuming this kit doesn't use the same belt as XM does, but if it does, would you sell the kit for marginally less without the belt? I'll probably buy this thing in its current non anodized state anyway though

    Not afraid to admit that my fab skills are seriously lacking. Gordo, I bought that machinists book that you recommended. Hopefully my neanderthal skills will get better after I read through some of it. I cut out a bunch of cancerous rust from the bumper and patched it up. My welding skills are slowly getting better though, which I'm happy about I also fit the second front brake. I just need rotors front and rear and then my brake system will be done

    Sure did Gordo. I have aluminum Z32 rear brakes already installed. Already plumbed in a Tilton portioning valve tucked under the booster and will dial it in after the car is running.

    Gordo, I need to learn more machining skills since mine are lacking, I'll look into getting that handbook. Zach, I did use multiple body hammers. The metal had a long way to stretch, which is why I think it tore. I'll weld a patch in from the back. I lied Gordo. Didn't buy the bit you recommended, so I bought a cobalt bit, which actually did pretty well. It broke right as I finished drilling the last hole. Got the brackets fit. The size difference is ridiculous. The CTS-v calipers are lighter than the Z32 irons, even fully loaded. I am already sure that these brakes won't be able to be used to anywhere near their full potential. I'm probably going to put 225 tires in the front, which I'm sure will lose traction before I'll be able to put the pedal down hard. Oh well. At least it looks cool, which is all that's important, right?

    Makes sense. I'll drag them over to my buddy's place and use his drill press to do it.

    Aw fuk. Haven't you heard of that grade of steel? From softest to hardest: Chinesium Harbor freight specialty tools OEM Steel Grandma's christmas peanut brittle I already know I'm really putting myself out on a limb here. I haven't seen anyone with this kit before, so I feel like the guinea pig. Wheel fitment will be close. Bought the drill bit you suggested Gordo. We'll see how it goes. I'll be using a drill guide by the way, so hopefully it won't be hacked out garbage.

    Not a major update, just a little bit of venting and frustration. Bought the SCG Performance CTS-V 6 pot conversion kit. Waiting for it in the mail. In preparation, I attempted to drill out the holes on the knuckle to accept the 14mm bolts, as outlined in the SCG instructions. Bought a "nice" 22 dollar bit, only to have it shit itself and pit out within ten seconds. Used cutting oil, a drill guide and kept it at a slow rpm. Recommendations for drill bits that can handle OEM steel, anyone? All the ones I've bought in the past have sucked. Other than that, I finished plumbing in my portioning valve, splitter, and master cylinder. Used a T100 11/16 master as SCG recommended. The ports are on the side of the master, which makes for a slightly more tucked look, which I'm happy about. I tried to tuck everything as best as I could. I also sleeved the hardline with the same black fiberglass sleeving that I used for my wire harness. Hopefully it'll keep out a little bit of heat, and it hides the ugly bright bronze coloring of the line. Everyone's gonna make a giant stink about the gaping hole in my strut tower to clear the banjo bolt. Kindly fuck off. I'll reinforce it later. That's all for now

    JZ to BMW ZF

    True about this forum, but take it with a grain of salt. I know a few people with a supposed impossible trans-ratio combo like me, but they're happy as a pig in slop with it, go figure. I know Ricky is happy with how his CD009 drives, but is salty about how much chopping he had to do to his tunnel. Looking at the ZF trans, they seem to have a smaller bearing plate. Fitment wise, maybe it's easier, I don't know. Gordo is quick to shit on the CD and ZF trans, but he has fondled many a tranny in his time, while I have not. He knows what trannies feel good and which ones don't, so I'm not afraid to dub him the tranny expert. He knows how trannies are geared better than any of us, so maybe go with his advice. P.S, gordo likes trannies.

    Pretty much all those ZF and Getrag transmissions are geared like this. They are all really low, like around 3.0. Even the MKIV Supra had a 3.13 paired with the Getrag V160. Eventually I'll probably swap out my ring and pinion in my MKIII LSD for a 3.5, but the CDxx9 trans that I have is going to have horrible ratios too, which Gordo has already made his disgust apparent. The 3.5 is going to get me closer, but it's still going to suck.

    JZ to BMW ZF

    Your ratios will be dicked. Already looked into it. I think those cars normally have a 3.1 or 3.2 diff in them, so you're gonna be geared really high. I'm reaching way back into my memory from two or three years ago, but that's vaguely what I remember. There was also a yolk or tailshaft adaptation problem from what I remember.

    Worked on the car this weekend. Nothing too major has occurred. Turned the motor over and got it running. Everything functions properly since I cut the wire harness at the firewall and installed the milspec connectors. There are a few problems though... AFR's are going bananas. At idle, it's around 14-15, which is good, since it's aiming for stoich. It starts to creep up pretty quickly though, and after 20 or so seconds, it starts to go above 16, so I shut the car off. When I rev up the motor, the AFR's barely drop at all. It's running lean and I'm not sure why. Boost is also kind of odd. It's running at vacuum at idle, which is good. When I rev it, boost increases to around 14 or so, but settles at a different place once I back off the throttle to idle.
