240Z - RB26 Engine Conversion [PART 5]
We have made some major progress, on our our b-26, conversion, on our Nissan, Fairlady Z and today, the build continues. So. This is an absolute, thing. Of beauty this is turbo. Yoda's dump pipe, with. Optional. Wastegate. Agitator. Is. That, yeah. That's the thing to make it not break yeah. When it heats up and cools, down a thousand, times this is incredible. Let's. Put it on okay, I will feed it to you you can jump under the car I will tuck it under to you then you feed it up. So. That the turbo is in now for good it's, got a coolant line it's got an oil line it's, attached that's, it like we basically, filter. On this side dump on that side done yep, so. Good. All. Right there. You go good luck with that I. Have. Your v-band marking, point here. Yep. We're. Saying before I asked you how many times you've done this and we, got to hundreds, and hundreds and that was as far as you are willing to guess yeah, which. Is good that's enough because, I haven't. This. Marks a significant, part of our build process because. Once the dump pipe is connected the major turbo, components, of our build are complete. So. The turbo is now mounted, it is done the dump pipe is on the wastegate is done we've got coolant, lines we've got oil lines it's looking incredible. So mr. Yoda can you tell me about what happens next in terms of the piping over here so. It's going to throw an air filter on the front of it that'll that'll work do, air filter right here just stick it on yeah happy, days. In, the cool part is I've. Just got one tacked on there that, we need it to size up to miss, the exhaust manifold, yep it's gonna go out through into, the inter core and, we're not using any silicon, for that at all we're kind of using this like Wiggins style it pleasing, a wig install clamp it's not it's not an our Wiggins clamp and it's the same stores yes yeah, they're pretty cool and that's gonna give us some movement, isn't it yeah plenty. Of engine movement, and. It's virtually. You. Can't break them the sucker. It's almost like a solid coupling but it gives movement, yeah nice they're really cool so that kind of in a way kind of takes the place of what's silicon joint is my yep. That's it yeah, cool so obviously, that's going to go down to the front now which I was meant to pick up but it wasn't ready yet so Marty's gone to hyper tune to pick that up and then that's gonna come around this side into our intake. Yep which Marty's also picking up yep and so while we wait for that fuel. Tank you know we used a very special, technique yesterday. To D fume and can you explain that to me so, basically, like it's got just, got fuel in there there's there's beams. We drained the tank but there's still fumes and stuff in there so if you we've gotta cut a hole in it which doesn't, we're not welding it or anything like that but he's still cutting, things so to.
Make It a bit safer what we do is just get, a car running up the temperature, shove. The exhaust pot over the fuel Inlet and it's just the. Inert gas that's coming out of the car just continue. You just run it for half an hour yeah and it just purges. It basically. That's an old trip from the radiator shop yeah nice I want to get blown up by fealty. We. Don't it's best or not just, don't do it at all don't touch though well don't do anything to a fuel think it's a bad idea yeah to a professional, we're, not welding and we're acting just cutting holes yeah it's just a good idea to, purge it of any views. Nice, all right well let's go to modify the fuel tank Cara. So. This this thing's just it's some design so you can put a modern. Fuel. System, inside, the original fuel tank of an old car so, it's. It's kind of just like a surge, tank inside the fuel thing and it's, it's pretty simple it's just a like, a foam thing, with a that's. Sort of your tank at the bottom it's just made out of rubber, with. The foam the. Pump goes on here and it all just goes in like that and screws down to the tank and, we're. Gonna be cutting that down here. Yeah, is there enough is there enough depth here for this sort of we need and say there's, a minimal in depth that you can which we're, fine with it's six six, inches 150, mm minimum. Height. Up. To I, think, it's 12, inches 300. Mil maximum. Okay forget the pump to reach, this. Thing you just trimmed down depending, on what what. Height. Your tank is. So. It's, got like it this, is it this is actually a template, looks fancy, but so. We cut out we're gonna put on top and cut to that we hole saw. 82. Mil and. That must fit in it and then, you use that that's your drilling template once. You've drilled it I've, got this cool. Thing. Here so it's got a cutout, in it so. When you get. That inside the tank you, need that cutout so you can sort of roll it down inside and then your studs come back up and it, just stays in there oh that's so cool that is what this. Sort. Of mounts onto. So. Then it's got rubber a rubber seal so you can put it in like we've got a nice flat surface which is excellent, but, a lot of older tanks are all corrugated, and this. Rubber, thing here it actually accounts, for the corrugation, so. It's quite a cool idea, it. Sort of says you're having all the. Surge. Tanks, and all that stuff that gets. Smelly and noisy, yeah and then in, a case where you don't need five fuel pumps like this just. One in tank pump it makes no noise is it great, like it's the best thing for the for this sort of car and that's one of the things we're saying for a tinder car like this I swipe left or swipe right, which, what he is what, what. Are your let us know is. That is, that it's not going to be stinky and it's not gonna be noisy yeah hi, Cheryl which, means it just it makes a good car for date night. Let's. Do it. The. Cars going to be running a ditch works fuel pump inside our modified, fuel tank and we're setting it up so we can run both 98, octane and ethanol, with, a flex fuel sensor we've.
Located The, best position for the new pump and we're marking the center point and then we'll drill it out. We're. Using a hole saw to get a perfect, circle and once this is done we can give the tank a quick clean inside, and out. With. The fuel tank successfully chopped. Now we can start adapting a new fuel delivery, system. The. Next thing we have to do is connect, power to the new fuel pump. We. Could be surgeons. Good. Works. We. Publish shouldn't these surgeons though, some. People do this for a job that they're fixing human beings they're, like quick pull the gut out and put, the other guts in a lot of people doing poo transplants, at the moment you heard about that. It's, a thing you basically, there was a guy who was, really sick had like gut problems and they, got his wife's poo and stuck it up his bum and like fixed him when no other medication, could so, now they're getting like um AirDroid. You know when you're air dry foods, their, air drying feces, sticking, it in a pill and then you can take it up your butt. And. Can. Help you with all sorts of different things okay and. Go. Stick it in, go. Go. Go go. Are. We in. That. Was clean with, our fuel pump all wired up now turbo Yoda is sorting out our oil cooling, system so, this is the. Bolt. That used to hold the factory, water to. Oil, cooler. Yep. And so. We need like a double-ended spigot, to screw, a new fitting. On yep, and, they. Can't find one easily so, I'm. Just making, this into it, so. We just got a tap. Three-quarter. 16 tap not, - I should say. I'm. Just running it down to make it longer and then we're gonna cut it off yep, and just screw it in and then the other thing screws on. We, won't be attaching our external oil core until, our front mount intercooler is done but now at least it's all ready to go back. To the fuel tank it's time to prepare this 40 year old beast for some modern fuel delivery, technologies. Dave. From haltech has arrived to continue, wiring the car and Marty, has returned, from hyper tune with, our intake manifold, and front-mount, intercooler both. Of which have been made to order specifically. For this bill and that, is cause for some celebration. So. This is really exciting, this is our brand, spanking, new hyper, tuned intake. Manifold, the, plenum here is like hydro formed aluminium, and it's welded by the guys down at the factory which is pretty impressive, you've got the runners here they're made their, billet I believe look to be and. Also. Got a Bosch Motorsports, throttle body that's awesome because it's a thrill it's also nice and compact and dave, is gonna wire it in it's gonna look awesome again put a wig, in style clamp on the front of it so no silicon this, will bolt straight to the side of the head well right side of the head via what, used to be the individual, throttle bodies so, this is pretty cool because we can still use our factory, injector point you can get these with 6, or 12, injector. Ports. On them as well it's, also handy because you've got some, zakian, ports on the back here so you've got map sensors ball, valve boost references, all that kind of stuff in the bottom so it looks nice and neat so that goes on there with some bolts that will get, it. Does fit look at that, it's. Pretty man that looks so good and I like the theme to like the silver and the black with the top of the black engine he. Looks amazing it's, neat you'll do what you needed to do gets, rid of some of the complicated factory, stuff and, Alan's nodding and half smiling that's usually a very very good thing. So. A box has arrived from our friends at ditch works I'm, pretty excited about we have fuel. System parts we're, gonna have injectors, and they'll be some other goodies in here but I've yet to see what they are oh my. God so much stuff is. Awesome. What, do we got I think that is a fuel, pump it's. Always a bit mysterious the, lettering on it you never know what it is until you open it but that's fine because a bit, of a fan of the old unbox, we. Had a fuel pump already and we installed it no, no but this is no that's good if you yeah that's awesome you know why cuz that's gone in super grants really. Yeah. This. Is I, don't know what these are but these look exciting also spoke, code words. Who's. That, 350. Il I think that's for the crest up, it's. Nice of them to give us a spare this. Oh these. Will be injected that's what you want yes, look it's that one what size of these you would, I think these are 12.
Hundreds. For. Hundreds awesome. So these are gonna my object is they're gonna flow heaps, heaps what we're doing because, it's gonna be on petrol when it's driving round the streets and then if we feel like putting ethanol in it we can you're, gonna put a flex sensor how thick is gonna know it's got FN oil in it. We've, done the pump, as you would have seen already and, now the. Injectors going I'll show you where these bad boys are gonna go amazing, so, this, is the so. I'm saying before these are the factory throttle body thingies so they, they're gonna go like that yeah, I got poor plug down Dave. Plug. And. The flute goes. There, you. Like that bolted, on happy, days. Very. Excited, it means we can do it this this will mean the car will actually start we. Get a spark from Dave and some, juice from this and some. Timing from our he'll take then we're good to go amazing, I'm. Martin over one quick question for you yep over here's something else that's underneath, your box of goodies is another box of goodies and, underneath here there. Was shimmying going, on today which, was a. Kind. Of you know how it had that weird old school like oil cooler before yeah well we're swapping, that out to this, a heat, transfer. Unit. Now, we could go full bozo, style and have to like. Hoses, hanging out the light over, there now and then, you, know make it look like a bozo build or we could actually just do it properly and mount it somewhere down here but the question is should. It be visible, or should it not be visible, it's, already black yes, I don't particularly want it visible we're going shiny intercooler aren't we just because yes yes we are showing intercooler, well you're into color for the extra power Martin I think we could count putting five any cool, well. Might have to yes. As long as it's pure at all that matters pure, man we're. Installing a set of 1200, CCD, twerks injectors, onto our engine due to the way the intake manifold, is designed we use the original injector, ports and the fuel rail slips directly, onto the back of the injectors, with the help of some petroleum jelly the injectors have been flow tested and matched and come, with a datasheet to help with set up on the programmable, ECU once. We're ready to fire up the car for the first time a matched, set of injectors means you're less likely to need to do individual, cylinder tuning these injectors, can run petrol or 85, and pressure, will be supplied by a DW, 400, high flow pump retrofitted. Into the original tank speaking. Of the tank it's time to reinstall, it in the car so, what we're doing in the fuel tank here, so. We don't have to cut holes in the cars that muddy has. Cut up these, these. Are like engine mounts or something rubber.
And You cut them and then we've are all darted them on which, means the whole tanks gonna drop down around 20 mil what, that's gonna mean is that we've got room for a new pump over here and, all of our hoses because. There's gonna be a little bit of a gap between the, top of this and underneath, the car otherwise we would have to cut out a hole around that round and then, run the hoses down that way so this way of. Course it's totally reversible. Except. For the big hole that we just drilled in the fuel tank but the, car body itself will, not be affected. If this works or. Art wide. But. It's looking good so far. Yep. There. Was one one, not on the top probably, two maybe you want to break in between. Who, we lost something, mine's. Not cloaks anyways. Yours. Is yours gonna work. Bolt. Extension, we. Need to watch that YouTube video where the guy shows you have a short and a bolt and do, the opposite. So. These are the bolts that hold the straps on for the fuel tank but because we've dropped it by 20 mil these, an hour and 20 ml two shots so we have to extend. Them. I have, to lube it up a little bit that will be a gem that in there well the feel things done that was a big one so he's a mad little tip for you he's got a Japanese car turbo. Yo who was just asking me if we could try and find a translation. Or a diagram, of this but, what you can actually do is get Google Translate put that on to live view and then that'll let you do really, funky stuff like this so let's say we want to know what, this fuse is here with, Google Translate live, view we just hold that near it and that, will say, air. Conditioning so, that's what that fuse is which. Is pretty freakin, amazing like we are in the future, so it's doing a real-time, translation, of, what's on there so over, here you can see that, that is lights. Top left and. You can just scroll through it's not always perfect but it does a pretty good job that's the antenna that's, the washer so I, mean lolling at you see, that is it blowing it said Lowell did it, laughing. At you me but. How cool is that like. That's incredible so, air. Conditioning sounds good don't know why it has an air conditioning fuse but I guess that was an option anyway. Mad tips for your Japanese car so, it's been a massive, a couple of days on the s 3240, 260, 280 Datsun, missin the. Arby's in there which is pretty exciting the, turbo is all mounted, up it's got its lines the dump pipe. Incredible. Yeah it's all there they're very cool external wastegate yeah we plugged in the oil feed the oil drain the coolant the the coolant drain so, that that's I it's pretty much good to go just needs a filter on it and then some intercooler box right and we dropped the fuel tank of course and that got chopped that's got its new, pump. In it ah Dave's, been fiddling, away with lots of little wiring stuff but it's super neat I mean you can just gonna slap the wires on the top plug them in and go but this is all really yep, and, that's, the result you get when you get the best the. Best in the business to do it which, is what we have right here with a gentleman that for some reason come, down and help, us I don't, know why it could be the salt and vinegar chips or. It could be, your. Witty banter Martin that could be the banter it could but here is a lot of that so. Next up of course are we got to do the front mount we've, got to mount that up we've got to do the piping the intakes got to go on we've, got to plumb up the radiator, oil, call, the, oil cooler what, else is there with some more fiddly fittings, to do like bitterly. Fittings like the breathers on top of the manifold. So we've got to take them off next as well yep, look, this will go on soon as soon as days finish Don's doing some more and we'll throw that on and then we've also got to work out whether we're actually gonna rebuild, the rear drum brakes just so we can drive around and test it or whether we're gonna wait and try and upgrade that rear end we haven't really haven't. Really decided yet what we're gonna have yeah is it's tricky to find it you've got to sort of mix and match a whole bunch of parts there's no just one-stop thing that goes fixed, that's what if they are then on Australia when founding it yep so. There it is thank you for watching another episode of mighty car mods we'll, be back shortly with, some more redonkulous. RV, 26 action you can follow us of course on the face balls facebook-dot-com, forward-slash in, your balls, ah thank, you very much - turbo, you're over here thank, you to Dave and we'll. Be back in a few days so thanks for watching a straight cut or kinky creepy crimping our crinkly, kit crinkly bullets, what are they chips crinkle cut straight, I like I like a sweet potato chip, idea, have you ever kumara, fly yeah calmer fried that's just, that with our fried chicken, mother, durian shut.
