Fuel Pressure Regulator Adjustment

After careful consideration the decision was made to take the FPR off the fuel rail and secure it to the Firewall.  This will provide a more sturdy way to secure the FPR and make adjustments.  It also allows me to use the fuel pressure gauge.  There was one major issue moving it to the firewall.  The intake was on the wrong side.  After studying the unit and watching a youtube on disassembly it was determined removing the 4 bolts and spinning the top was the best solution. The four bolts were removed and the top was rotated180 degrees and then the top was bolted back down.  The gauge was fitted and the whole thing was attached to the mounting plate.

Wiring Upgrades

Christmas in November as the parts from CE Auto Electric Supply arrived. This will provide all the power and grounding solutions I need for under the hood. This has got to be the single biggest improvement to the Datsun Z car.
This car is horrible for chasing grounding issues and lacking enough power to run the car the way it should.
The wire and 120 AMP Alternator should take care of the Z’s electrical needs.
The electric fans were posing a problem for me with the new ECU. Tony answered all my questions and came up with his Dual Electric Fan solution that should provide enough juice to the dual fans.
Working with Tony Candela was an absolute breeze. He was very responsive and answered all of my questions. After I paid him for the wiring I swear he had everything customs made and in the mail within 24 hours. Its very rare to see customer service like this anymore. He provides a great product at a very competitive price. His attention to detail is evident in every piece of wire. I will definitely do business with Tony in the future.  Check out his website in the left Storefront links section.

IAC and MAP Bracket

This is version 3 and the final version of the bracket to mount the Idle Air Controller (IAC) and the Manifold Absolute Pressure (MAP) Sensor. This will allow me to reuse the factory holes on the firewall to attach these two devices. I should be able to bolt this straight to the firewall tomorrow.

The bracket is made of 2″ Aluminum Angle. I measured, drilled and tapped all the holes to accept M6X1MM Bolts.

Everything will be held together with Locktite and attached to the car with the factory bolts.
