This takes doing it right the first time to a whole new level. Should be a great build.

This depresses me when i look at the state of my own garage.

Thats cool what you did with the wood on top of the coating. What did you do to smooth out that transition and prevent the floor from coming up?

I used Cortec flooring. It is water proof, and doesn't expand or contract. It also has the backing built on it. So it doesn't pop up. Just the weight of the floor keeps it down with no problems rolling chairs or other things on and off it.

Here we have a fine example of the correct personality type for a turbo 370z build.

Don’t forget about dual “Line-Loc” solenoids.

Very jealous and nice job BTW...

I have similar goal but with SC. I noticed your 1300cc injectors with 340 lph pump. Are you going to run e85? I will be running smaller injectors, but larger pump. 1050 / 450 for mine. I just wonder if that pump will be the right one, especially since you have a turbo that’s capable of a lot more. Either way, good luck man!!

Those fuel system parts are what Moncef at Admin Tuning recommended. I spoke with him about my goals and what turbo set up I was going with and those parts are what he suggested.

He is very good with our VQs, from what I hear, and that is what he want in the car to do his tuning. So that is what I will give him

I might try to figure out a way to get E85 and set up a tune for it. I just do not have any local stations that have it.

You'll need bigger pump when using E85.

My original plan was 93 octane pump gas only. I will make sure to tell him about my thoughts on E85, before he sends me the parts.
