Whatís up guys, Iím Tim. Iím from Chicago but just recently relocated to Arkansas. I bought a 2012 sport Monterrey blue when it was brand new. Sold it due to personal things, and just bought another Z. This time itís a pearl 2013 base model that Iím going to pick and choose to mod. Iíve learned a lot in the few years Iíve been checking in here, and hope to continue to do so!

Thanks man! Well so far in the last 2 months Iíve done:

Upgraded to 19Ē rays 285 rear 245 front (buddy sold me rays for 400, just coated)
H&R lowering springs
Gen 3 intake
Motordyne art pipes
AEM resonated short tales

Future:
Upgrade Brakes/lines
Sway bars
Possibly camber arms (depending how these tires wear)
I want to do more with the engine (open to suggestions)

The cars a 13í with only 24k miles on it and was a steal...otherwise I probably would have gotten a sport. But seeing this is a second car and my toy, I didnít mind.

Welcome to The Land of Opportunity and The370Z!

PS: I spent 11 Winters in the Chicago area. If I never see another snowflake, it's OK by me.
