I know you don't want Honda because everyone else is doing it. But for some reason a F20c with a small Greddy Kit on a clean 240z just seems right.

This article has a guy making 299RWHP on what they call a reliable 10 psi. I havn't done any real research on it but it seems like a winner, at least at a glance.

What is it from? Are you talking about your 5 or a 6? Msm 6 or an SE/LE 6? I've noticed that the Ford full synthetic does help a lot, but mine is the Miss in "hit or miss" with these damn things. I even got a new 2nd/3rd gear and some new syncros a while back, still sucks.

Just thinking about ^.

I'm gonna retract that until I do some real research. I like that motor, and I like the 240z's. Doesn't make it a good match though.

Well said. Plus, I don't know if the High as hell revving motor is going to be something he wants on the track. It could be very capable, but I just don't know about it, could get annoying or akward to drive.

I don't think the OP is following the topic anymore, I'd like to see what he thinks about my suggestion, if he read any of the links I threw up. blaaaah.
