Default I unleashed a monster... STi's beware.

I spent the last week & a half building it. Let's see... Start off w/ a new Nissan 350Z. Add dual 18G turbos, dual wastegates, a 4" deep LM intercooler, hard piping, big injectors, free flow induction, free flow dual 3" exhaust & an engine management system. It is based off the ($12,000) Greddy twin turbo & intercooler kit, but w/ alot of upgrades & alot of extra tricks usually reserved for race cars. W/o proper tuning (I just wanted to get it out of the shop), running 6lbs of boost, we figure it's good for 400+ hp at the wheels. Unfortuneately, there is also about 300lbs of audio equipment in the car too. I am undecided about the full CF Veilside V3 body kit that is yet to be fitted. But it's not my car. Gladly I also fitted AP Racing's LM BBK to it. I still have to fit extra turbo add-ons & a complete JIC (FLAT2-RS?) suspension which has not yet arrived. That's easy stuff.

I kid you not, this is the most powerful car I have been in for a long time. We've built 500hp Z's before, but nothing w/ such a broad torque band. It pulls, & pulls, & pulls. It seems there is no stop to the power in reserve. The new VQ engines are strong to begine with & now... I feel sorry for the tires. If you see it on the streets, have fun. The owner is not hesitant about using the car. It should be seen in the major rags later this year. I look forward to seeing it this winter when it's scheduled for a complete rebuild - doubling the current output.

Sorry, I had to vent. After 10days of seeing this car more than daylight & the customer "visiting" more often than breathing room, I am relieved to have it running & gone, for awhile.
