Hi, I recently, in the past 2 months or so, bought a 77 280Z for my next project car. I have most of an RB26 that I'm going to be building up and swapping into it. I left the block and internals behind, it was stock and fairly high mileage, but the engine made 600 hp give or take when I pulled it. I have the rest of the parts, including some that I won't be able to use more than likely, but a few, like turbo's and ECU, I'll be replacing either before I do the swap or sometime after I get it running. I'm not aiming for a certain hp number, but I'm guessing it will probably be in the 900-1000 range when I'm completely done with it. It's not going to be a daily driver per say, but I do want to try to keep it street-able so I can take it to work if I feel like it.

If anyone's interested in following my project, I have a website link in my sig. It's not going to be a very quick project, and definitely won't be cheap, but at least it'll keep me busy for a while.
