If you can get a hold of a decent oscilloscope and variable power supply you can just test it.
Here is a link for basic dwell calibration.

The Z32 5-speed will hold that kind of power easily as long as you choose an adequate clutch. They're hella stout, with probably thousands of drag launches on them without issue. The Z33/G35 6-speeds are finally becoming a real option soon. A group of guys out of Flagstaff are developing an adapter...

wiggins clamps have a bit of flex if i recall... and thet might be need on a rubber mounted motor They are capable of 3 degree total misalignment. I wouldn't recommend using it on a rubber mounted engine because the engine can torque quite a bit, exceeding the allowable misalignment of the joint. I...

NPD is that an SR CAS? Noticed you were running a COPS setup and was curious how you were getting cam/crank signal to the ECU. And love the wiggins clamps, almost never actually see them used for some reason No the CAS is a s13 KA. Just removed the cap and rotor and machined a billet cover to go on...

I spend more on machining than most people because of my past experiences with many machine shops. Not many machine shops can hold a tolerance 5 microns (0.005mm or 0.00019685 inches)

But I'd definitely balance the crank. If budget permits I would balance your other components too.

Taking it to the track puts a lot of load on the motor. I hope stock blocks can handle it. But like I posted above we don't have the best odds.

NPD, what modern "smart" ignition coils (S2000, 350z, etc) would be long enough for the spark plug holes and would offer the best fitment and hood clearance? I can't remember exactly, but you tapped your valve cover or welded on a plate to secure your coils in place right? I did weld a adapter plat...

I am not familiar with the "twin fire" box but the 350z(vq35) and newer nissan coils are mostly all integrated transistors which explains why majority of "CDI" or "Igntion Amplifier" boxes will burn out the coils when used in conjuntion with integrated transistor coils. The integrated transistor is ...

I'll be going the L19 11mm non-oring route.

are the S2000 coils run right off the ECU or are you running a DIS4 or twinfire type box?
the s2000 coils are integrated transistors(internal ignitor coils) so you can drive them directly from the ecu.

I've got the Xcessive one on my car with a Greddy SR sump kit. It holds about 5.5~6qts.

It's just hard for me to say exactly how much is exactly in the sump because with the Xcessive pan, Greddy sump, oil cooler and accusump my setup takes a total of 9 qts.
