Today Jared works on our 1990 Nissan 300ZX (Earl Leeker), and fabricates some engine mounts out of hockey pucks and scrap metal. Who said these engines are expensive to work on?

Excellent idea on the hockey pucks. Helped a buddy put a 1j in a Volvo 240 wagon about 14 years ago and we used those. Still holding today!!

Those are some vibrant tool boxes. I suppose there's an explanation at some point since I didn't see any comments near the top.

But if you moved the motor backward another 2.5 - 3 inches, would the motor mounts not line up better now? And it doesnt SEEM TO APPEAR that you would lose the ability to do a side exit... Granted, all the years I spent wrenching at Yota and Lexus, and taking apart 2J's to making them run and sound better (with both Toyota sanctioned AND unsanctioned repair/modifications 😂😂) I have NEVER put one in to 300z so I could be 100% talking out if my ass and be wrong on both counts. Very curious about it though. Great channel. Great builds. Keep up the good work man. I like the way you build cars, cause you... BUILD CARS. Unlike some of these million subscriber "builder" channels. TISKTISK on them SMH LMFAO.

On an earlier video, they discuss the reason for not moving the engine back as to keep the rest of the drive line in their stock locations. If they move the engine back, then they need to fab clutch linkage, modify the shifter, shorten the driveshaft, (and other things I'm probably forgetting). Having to make mods to 'just' the engine was 'easier'.

Thank you for adding “Warning: Flashing lights” on videos. My wife sometimes watches these videos with me and she’s an epileptic, so it helps her avoid some triggers.

Best way to learn how the handling is affected by the engine being mounted so far forward is to buy/drive/race almost ANY Audi as they've been doing the same thing for years! Good luck with the project from Scotland

The motor vibrations will eventually break those welds. Especially on the passenger side.

Hi Jared. How are you going to open that door with tha pipe sticking out? Jus an idea, but how about kicking that pipe down and then out? I seen these side exits done a lot. I have done afew for friends track cars before it became popular. Just a thought. Keep up the great work.

I used hockey pucks as replacement motor mounts on Vintage Snowmobiles. I would cut them on a band saw and drill a hole through the center. Nothing new. I used a metal plate first. This is NOT a new idea in my book. When you are working on something build 50 years ago, you cannot go to the dealer and ask for parts. I found out most vintage snowmobiles used farm type equipment because snowmobiles originally were used to access fruit trees in the winter to prune them. The first original track was made from conveyer belt. You can go to any tractor supply place and find it on rolls. The engines were usually Briggs and Stratton. All bearings, bushings,etc were from farm implements. Knowing that, I could easily restore any early model snowmobile. Now days, forget it. Everything is so advanced, you need a computer to figure out what's going on.

500hp 2JZ 😅. The stock 300ZX turbos make 550hp rebuilt you dummies. VG30DETT will also make 1200hp with a upgraded fuel rail from Border I think. The stock VG30DETT pistons can handle 700hp. The Z32 has solid engine mounts avalible. The body kil looks like 💩. The race cars widebody has parts on the doors to widen doors. No dragracers would buy a shell that replaces the hood, nose, and front fenders like the race car. The race car has a front shell. And you could of made new 1 pice fiberglass widebody front fenders. You could of also bolted a R34 engine to the Z32 transmission if you wanted a Nissan inline 6 and less trouble of a build.

the engine needs to be way further back .. and it's so fucking frustrating watching this build ... not stripping everything down, cleaning it, organizing the whole thing... it's really fucking obnoxious when your doing such a cool build, in such a half ass and disorganized way ... if your building new motor mounts.. put the fuckin engine where in needs to be .. why cut so many fuckin corners ... its literally making me kringe!!

I really like you guys, however, I feel like you are making a huge joke of the Z32 by bastardizing this vehicle when you actually have all the ability in the world to bring it back to life. I'm all for putting a 2JZ in it but the exhaust and the stupid shit is driving me nuts
