Re: LZ20 engine build

The only replacement for displacement is forced induction.

Re: My 1980 Datsun 720 diesel dually

I honestly don't know enough about diesels. But have always heard it's a bit like nitrous for them. I've heard of guys doing alcohol siphon feed on turbo gas engines. Keeps the temps down. Maybe it's between the 2 (nitrous/alcohol).

Re: LZ20 engine build

Having driven my L19 build, and been in a bone stock L20 car, go for the displacement.

Re: Escape From the Prison Planet

We used my friends Isuzu to pull the fallen tree out of my yard. That diesel power sent to dually wheels, and the weight of the thing, pulled that tree (in sections) up at almost part throttle.

Those things are absolute beasts.

Re: Jacob's other Wagon

On my drive home today I checked the car to see if it has passed all of its readiness monitors. YAY it had, and no check engine light (Still have pending P0171 and P0174 lean codes). But it was 5:45, and I was still 5 minutes from home, and I needed to do an oil change, and the testing station close...

Re: Jacob's other Wagon

And the sound is fixed! Drove it to work today. No sound. Need to do the oil change tonight. Also I was thinking about the power again. Torque is way better, the car feels way smoother off the line. It's revving less to accelerate, and it's definitely faster at the lower rpms. High end, it's odd. Th...

Re: Jacob's other Wagon

Grabbed a random PCV from autozone. Hopefully it will limit the vacuum pulled.

Re: Jacob's other Wagon

This is exactly the sound and symptoms. Probably just too much vacuum. Some port makes a whistle sound. Time to inserts a PCV into the system. (Because it cheaper than the stupid malfunctioning OEM system).

Re: Jacob's other Wagon

Ok, hood up, when it wants to be loud, it is ear piercing when standing in the right spot. it is 100% related to crankcase vacuum. As soon as I pull the oil cap off the sound goes away immediately. Um this is gonna be hard to find... I need a smoke machine. But it wont stop me from driving it now th...

Re: Jacob's other Wagon

On another drive. Squeal went away... Until I had the motor good and warm. Not as prevalent as yesterday. I'll check more when I get home. But I noticed after I turned the car off the sound faded off... Like the engine should not have been running, yet the sound was still there. So now my train of t...

Re: Jacob's other Wagon

Yea I'm hoping it's related to the belts... I can feel the torque way earlier, it just glides from a start. Top of the rev range doesn't feel much different, like it rips from a start then the excitement doesn't carry through. I will put the 3.0 tune on, that should make it run 100% correct. All I r...

Re: Jacob's other Wagon

Got it (the tire) blown up. Went on a drive. Overall it went well. Kept the engine load varying. Put 10 miles on it. Engine is running smooth. No check engine light so far. Towards the end though, I seemed to have developed a squeal, and its pretty loud. Goes away with engine load. Present at idle a...

Re: Jacob's other Wagon

Got it started. Took about a good 30 seconds to prime the fuel system. And after about 10 attempts it finally caught. Pulled it out of the driveway, no leaks. Started driving down the road, um thats a weird sound, and it feels really reserved. Roll my window down, that is coming from the back... Dam...

Re: Jacob's other Wagon

Or I am an idiot, or I was just too tired... I went out and tried again... I noticed the tach was reading like 150rpm... Got out, looked at the serpentine belt, "cranked" it again. OH, the belt moved. I guess without the spark plugs the motor spins real easy. Anyways, Im prepping my computer to down...

Re: Wynona the wagon's resurrection!

There are about 11 or 12 coolant lines on the CA. I reduced it as much as possible. Vacuum, I only have the FPR, Intake butterflies, and the wastegate stock. I added a BOV. Im gonna start with stock coils, but switch to VQ37 coils. You can shorten them to fit under the cover easily. And they are way...

Re: Jacob's other Wagon

Went to bump it over to get oil everywhere before starting.

Starter is just spinning...
