Nerd’s Eye View: SEMA 2015 Part I


I’m sure most of you are familiar with this Datsun build from Sung Kang of Fast and Furious fame. A 240Z is one of my dream cars and this is pretty close to how I would build my version.
A high-revving naturally aspirated RB26 featuring individual throttle bottles was built by Greddy. Of course, a host of Greddy components make their way into the engine bay as you can see from the various reservoirs, caps, and suspension camber plates.
The short length of the trumpets should bias the power towards higher engine speeds. Part of the throttle linkage opening the throttle bodies can be seen between the second and third runners. Of course, the fuel rail is also a Greddy part.
The exhaust header is just too pretty not to show. The throttle linkage is a clever little bit to allow the main throttle cable to be 90 degrees to the cable attached to the throttle pedal. The brake lines running next to the header are wrapped in protective insulation.
A Greddy oil filter sandwich plate allows for an oil cooler to be added to the engine. The sandwich plate has extra ports to allow for sensors such as oil pressure to be attached as seen here. The engine mount looks like it will not allow very much engine movement (the red hockey puck looking thing).
The Greddy oil cooler is mounted in front of the radiator.
The interior is very clean and simple with just a handful of gauges relaying important information to the driver. The AEM Infinity ECU is mounted on the passenger side of the transmission tunnel.
