480Z - cheap 2+2 build

Recommended Posts

Memorial weekend is going to be packed with local car events I thought I would miss but the Z is actually at a point where if I decide to not start any body work besides fitting the flares I could attend. Friday there is a local car meet and saturday there is an autocross event as well as street night at the local drag strip and autocross again sunday. I am really going to push to get this z back on the road so I can attend all of these I think it will be a blast.


Forgot to post pic of exhaust reworked for new trans and trans mount



Vogtland Springs installed. Went smoothly old struts were in good shape.



Liking the stance a lot that these springs gave

My cheap EBay fuel pump has gone bad (surprise) and so I have not been driving the Z lately. I have an Airtex with a lifetime warranty picked out to get her back on the road. I have lost interest in the car again so may be going up for sale not sure.

Wow. this build doesn't look cheap to me. Love what you did to the fender flares. Great work on this. Do you plan to add more mods?


Thanks, and I know it only started out inexpensive! (maybe I should update the title?), the recent work added up but was well worth it. I do plan to increase the handling before my next auto-x event and I also plan on doing more to the aesthetics to the car like bodywork, fresh paint, a front air dam and rear wing. I also want to upgrade the instrumentation and possibly cam the engine or upgrade to more displacement. We'll see how things go.  


I appreciate the comment!
