Default My 09 NISMO Fast Intentions TT Build

Finally getting around to putting together the ***build thread*** itís been a busy summer. If I go to one more wedding Iíve been to them allÖ

I'll try to make this concise. I've been told I'm a rambler.

2009 370Z NISMO, 6MT, true red, aka my baby. I spent years saving and researching and flew to Chicago from Northern Virginia to get my hands on it. Worth every penny

The final result will be Fast Intentions twin turbo on a built block, running E85 with an EcuTek Flex Fuel tune. Performance goal is 600rwhp. Work is being done by MA Motorsports in Glen Arm, MD (builders of Chris Forsberg's championship winning drift 370Z). Daelen is my rep at MA and he is hands down fantastic. The shop is awesome, very impressive interior, and the employees extremely friendly and up front. Initially I was considering sending it to Forged Performance as per Tony at Fasts' suggestion, but ended up settling on MA due to location. At the end of the day I want to be near the shop that builds the car, and Georgia was just too far away, although I know FP does absolutely amazing things with cars. If you havenít checked out their 400Z build youíre not really living.

Performance goal: 600whp on E85

Reinforcement specs:
- JE pistons 10:1
- CP rods (hell to the yeah)
- New main bearings, rod bearings, thrust washers
- ARP Main studs (regular)
- ARP Head studs
- New OEM gaskets
- SZ Z34 clutch and flywheel combo, 5 PUCK clutch, up to 725whp)
- HKS M-Super Fire Racing spark plugs
- Whiteline poly diff bushings

TT specs:
- Fast Intentions Twin Turbo Complete kit (#44 I believe) with the following upgrades:
- Bosch 1000cc fuel injectors
- Aeromotive Stealth 340 LPH in-tank fuel pump
- 34 row oil cooler
- 3Ē down pipes
- 3Ē FI CBE
- Greddy PROFEC boost controller

EcuTek specs:
- FAST-500 E85-Ethanol Fuel System
- FAST-500E Flex Fuel kit with blue ethanol percentage gauge
- Need to iron out these details with MA as they are not equipped for EcuTek yet, but said they will provide. So far theyíve been everything I could ask for in a shop and more, so I feel really good about my decision. For example, I have my repís personal cell phone number. Not bad!

Current tires / suspension / exterior:
- Potenza RE-11 265F/325R (thanks forum for the research info) with a good 5k miles left depending on driving style
- 1Ē Eibach springs Ė will upgrade to coils ďsoonĒ
- Wrapped in 3M Clear Shield, body kit is OEM NISMO

Future cosmetic mods:
- Make that sh!!t look like a red Godzilla
- Stillen sway bars probably
- GTR push start to match the exterior
- Splash guard
- Super dark tint, itís 35 now

Thatís everything I have right now. Feel free to ask any questions and/or pick apart any errors in the list and Iíll try to address them. I may or may not be typing this while ďpreparing a contract addendum.Ē

Huge thanks to forum user hjo1078 who not only let me test drive his insane FI TT 641whp Z, but also answered every single one of my nagging questions about his build and even after all that, became my real life *non-internet* friend, along with his wife! Two of the most genuine and awesome people Iíve ever met.

Also thanks to Tony at Fast Intentions and Daelen at MA Motorsports. Forged Performance and Baker Performance were also very professional and on point. At the end of the day Iím really glad I went with MA and canít wait to see what kind of speed madness they churn out with all my hard earned cash.

xx KJ xx

If you want pics of the motor work we're going to have to wait for those. The kit hasn't even been delivered yet (October timeframe). Car's in the shop now for block work. If pics of the car are all you want, I'll update that shortly.

Just out of curiosity, why are you only shooting for 600whp on a built motor and E85? You could do that pretty safely with a stock motor from what some of these guys have shown.

Good question. Unfortunately I've personally learned the hard way what can happen if you push a motor too hard, when it hasn't been properly reinforced and maintained. After one terrible blown motor experience I would rather set a safe goal, which is really as fast as I'll ever need to drive, while attempting to keep wear and tear down. The reinforced block was never a question as after market twin turbos inherently need stronger parts. But being a bit gun shy from past lessons, I don't feel the need to set a dramatic power goal. I'm all about longevity and protecting my investment.

I am however secretly hoping to max out closer to 650
