Progress on my insane VQ35HR 240Z project


Recommended Posts

This week are working on the last 2 cosmetic layers for the plenums and Andris just finished welding up the intercooler. We also hope to have the splitter, diffuser, and engine plumbing done by the end of the week- all in time for the Austin Wekfest on sunday the 30th.

Giant update! It's getting close to the Sunday 30th Austin Wekfest and we are trying to get as much done as possible. The radiator and intercooler are getting mounted. The plenums are getting their final fit, cosmetic CF coating, and polish. The dry sump plumbing is done. The splitter is partially finished. It will later be integrated into the front airdam as a single piece. Right now it'll stay as a separate part. Lastly, the shift knob is installed and fits perfect.

The cosmetic layers for the first plenum is done. The fit and finish is amazing. It looks better than I imagined it would. Once we finish the second plenum and bead blast the aluminum it's going to be perfect.

Mark, it's great to always see your car out and about. A mutual friend is the owner/creator of Weak Sauce (Wek Sos) that has those events and even though you are far away from me I got a picture text with your car. I just love it and the original Ver 1.0 will always be special to me. You sent me a hi-res pic some time back and it has been a poster in my room for a few years now. Keep it up! You inspired me to build my car to what it is now. Not is gnarly but close enough for me.
