Those headers look awsome! nice setup. Do you have the turbo braced at all? Are they 16g?


Yes it braced on each side of the Y-pipe to the engine and I'm running solid mounts as well.

Can wait till you finish your awesome project.....your Z32 will be a beast.:mrgreen:

Well the car is almost done,

changed alot since my last update. Ditched the twin walbro's and the water to air and decided to go air to air.

Built the intercooler using a garrett core and made my own end tanks.

Nice work! I am about to start my own fab project similar to yours, were do you get your aluminum stock from? especially the stock for that custom manifold.

Thanks

Joe

Yessir. Not really a daily driver persay but it is registered. We will see what happens after I take it to the track, i'm hoping to be well into the 9's so she might be getting a cage soon, but i doubt that will change me driving it on the street much lol.

Cool man. I thought about going turbo 5.3 but I think i'm going to stick with the vg, i feel the motor just hasnt been pushed very far. If it ever comes out a turbo 5.3 is what will be going in lol.

 

Out with the old, in with the new.

I then wet sanded the whole car, it was disgustingly dirty. Here is a before/after.

Great build. Are you maintaining A/C and Power Steering or making this more of a race car

no AC or PS, its a semi race car I suppose. It is registered though, and will be street driven on a regular basis. Speaking of which, finally got to drive it. Getting tuned today :D
