Deconstructionism

13 Jul

So Kwame got off his lazy ass today and dropped his damaged, stock subframe. A brief encounter with a guardrail in the rain left this one with a fracture. Next up, swap the new one in, complete with the Whiteline and SPL bushings, as well as convert all the remaining rear rubber bushings to the Whiteline urethane ones as well. Rome wasn’t built in a day, this car sure as hell won’t be either (in fact it’s been exactly 1468 days since the car has been driven!)….but it will be worth it when it’s all done. There won’t be another Z33 out there as well balanced as this.

Tomei Titanium Exhaust 350Z – Follow Up/Results Inside!

13 Jul

Thanks Shino

So what do you think guys? Is it something you want? Tomei is still on the fence whether to actually produce it. It’s really up the consumer. MSRP is $1300, street price is bound to be less than that. This is FULL titanium, ultra light

“Dyno results: Dynojet, 7/12/2010 run type RO, run conditions 79.69°F, 1021.77mBars, humidity 20%, SAE 0.97

max horsepower: 264.08hp (baseline 250.98hp)

max torque: 228.08ft-lbs (baseline 211.31ft-lbs)

the engine is complete stock. not even a aftermarket air filter in. gasoline is 91 octane from Chevron, and the engine oil is 5W30 from ENEOS. other here and there is the HKS suspension and the OS Giken LSD only. “

I came up upon one picture of this car and fell in love with the race livery. I then proceeded to spend the better part of the last hour scouring the net for more pictures of this ST-3 race class Techno First built Z34. Sharing is caring…
