Nismo front bumper

Need some help here folks. I was wondering if it's just an easy swap to change the front sport bumper to the Nismo bumper or is this a big deal.

You'll need the under tray and some other things.

I read in your signature that you're running the Nismo R-tune intake. Do you have these installed already? I know everything fits except the heat shields. Did you modify them at all?

search for the thread called Project: Nismo made by Thano.

But to answer your question, it can bolt right on but its under the the bumper that needs parts, you need new fender liners, undertray, diffuser and a few other small parts. I'm doing a full body swap from a 370z touring to nismo style.

And when your bored with it and go with a aftermarket body kit, you can sell it to me for 1/2 the price. Calling dibs now and forever

I want to see it when it's done

NEVER!...i think the nismo kit is the best kit out there...for people that already have the nismo 370z, they better not change it. All the other body kits on the market look rice as f*ck

It's installed. I was the first to do it and yes I had to mod the heat shields. There was a whole thread on it but do to some other issues with the dealer I purchased it from the thread was closed. AK did say that he was going to post the install and my heat shield mod but I guess he never got around to it. AK any chance you could post it, I was pretty proud of how it turned out and would love to share it.
Kindest regards,
Tom
I will see if I can find the pictures and do a repost.

Tommyguns, did you ever get this done? I am considering it for my 40th, if the price is right.
