Progress on my insane VQ35HR 240Z project

Recommended Posts

Crunch time! Still planning to test/tune in mid September and drive it to Nismo Fiesta in October. Shift actuator installed the transmission. Driveshaft arrived. Fixing leak on cam covers and while they are off we'll repaint them with a nice speckle red. I always loved the way Ferrari intakes looked with that texture. Lastly I'm converting the 3D printed canards into a mold to make carbon fiber parts.

yes. actually just spent many months doing some reworking of the engine after blowing it up at COTA. I'm hoping to bring both to the show.

Despite the insanity of your current build, this one remains one of my all time favorites

The 3D printed real panel just arrived. I had to send it to someone with a large format printer and even then it came in 3 parts. We will have to adjust the position of the lights a bit to get it mounted correctly. For now I'm going to leave the red/white paint showing behind it, despite my original plan to black out that area. It looks pretty cool in person. It's easy enough to change it to black later.

Just to stir the pot and seeing that you do outrageous mods, the go now is to fit a dual clutch transmission from, say, a BMW. Aftermarket support for this sort of conversion is coming on so no excuses LOL.
