FlawleZ's '87 NA2T

Recommended Posts

I bought her in Summer of '05 as I was in need of a new Z. So I did some checking through the local Z guys here and quickly came across a big project car. She had a broken T-belt and no tranny. Horrible interrior and an exterrior that said "Oh, just shoot me." BUT, I didn't let it stop me. I picked her up for $400 and so began the never ending project of what you see today. Here's how she looked as I tore into it the first time.

After over 3.5 years of work, time, and of COURSE money, here's how she currently sits:

Got the Z running again yesterday. Had my tensioner let go while at Branson Z Fest back in June. Still needs a little more fine adjusting and tuning before I start to turn up the boost. But it should be ready to lay rubber @ 60 mph soon enough. ;)

 

I also changed things around some more. Upgraded my turbo a Precision Billet 62/62, changed out my intercooler setup, added a Tial 38mm wastegate, etc.

The new stuff looks great, Matt.

 

Seeing all of you at BZF has made me look at the VG30ET swap a little harder now.

 

It really is a VERY capable motor. 500 WHP capable on the stock bottom end. All you need is a bigger turbo, IC setup, fuel, and NIStune. Done. ;)

Had StreetFighter (2JZ Z31 300ZX) build me custom manifolds a couple years ago. Here's how it turned out:

Installed all new fuel system:

Took it to the dyno last Tuesday:

And so far it looks like I have the record for most power on a stock bottom end VG30.

545 RWHP and 540 RWTQ
