This thought just came to me recently about switching from a kz motor to a new zx14 and was wondering what would all be involved in building a zx14 as far as work to the engine components.The combination I have now is a 600 pound with me on it. And would like to run in the low 8s. I have never torn into a zx motor before but I want to switch over in the next few years.
Does the transmission need undercut?
Should I do a 1-2-3 auto?
Does the crank need anything done to it?
Stroke the crank?
Can I run a Schnitz pro series 2 box?
I want to run fuel injection should I get a stock ecu or aftermarket and what should I get for aftermarket
Any certain electronics I need to run?
Please fill me with tons of info because if one works out good ill build another one to.
There is a member here with one.I believe he goes by tgraney
His son was running 8.0's at Man cup. trganey
Just look back in this thread (ZX_14)
If you want to run mid-6's you will need (other than the basic stuff, clutch and fuel and air management system)
That should do it.
I'm new to this valve n cams stuff but have to say our ZX14 motor is very interesting. Just installed APE valve springs/retainers and it only took five hours....that is a little more time than I am accustomed to when working on a head but hey, you have to adapt.
Mark at R&D said the 14 trans was the best basic design he had seen out of Japan and it didn't cost much to prep it for 250hp, from memory it was less than $600 for the full monte. Really stout motors but I have to say that Steve left an important component off his list, a really big Turbo.
i'll agree with bill, very stout motors. trani is the strongest stock i've seen to date
Not to mention how cool they look:
Is that a rag head?
Reminds me of a Hindu family that use to live on the block with their children, I asked the father one day how they came up with their children's names? He said they named them after the precious rock that was placed in their forehead, hence he said, my beautiful daughters are Topaz, Ruby and Diamond, he went on becoming what seemed to be very depressed - my son, he is Stoned.
