Khoi how is the TT kit coming? Im dying to know how those EFR's spool on our cars. NEED RESULTS BUDDY!!
The motor is pulled and we mocked up the manifold and turbos, right now our engineer is drawing up the fmic and i/c pipes

I'd like for us to be able to test fit everything on our 370z here, do the power testing and what not, but end up "sponsoring" a local customer with the full kit if they plan on doing shows and what not (DM i know we kind of went over this a bit already with you) since our 370z here is bone stock lol

I think that's pretty close actually, when you are talking bone stock z to a complete TT kit, installed, tuned (we're talking gauges, exhaust, complete fuel system etc) Installation of a lot of the parts take a good chunk of time..

(no offense intended of course)
our hourly book rate is higher than your average mom and pop shop due to this huge facility, so a lot of times labor at AAM is going to cost a bit more, but when you actually book out a complete TT install, we're looking at over 30+ hours..

Yeah it wasn't bad at all considering what all was being done. And at that point I had seen what you guys did with Lou's Z and was impressed.

But I decided it wasn't worth it for this car. I'd just eventually buy something a little higher up on the totem pole.

I wish I was a wizard. Seriously my friend Pat that you met...he has tought me everything I know and is literaly 70% the mastermind behing everything im doing. Luckily we have a pretty good business agreement.

For real though if I did a build Identical to mine(keep in mind I had some luck with cheap parts) It would be maybe 3000-3500 in parts and 1000-1500 in labor. But im also doing alot of pointless crap like prepping for e85 usage so there is a little extra money going into that... ie $900 injectors haha

I would like to finish my build and perfect it before I get anyone else involved.

And lets face it, if you want to do a proper TT setup on the Z, you NEED gauges, clutch upgrade, FI optimized exhaust, etc.

The stock suspension could use some work too.

If I was really in love with the Z and had the cash to blow it would probably be worth it, but when you start to think about it you can just get into a (no offense) better car and get that performance straight from the factory for around the same total cost. To each his own, though.

Thats awesome Khoi, Im really looking forward to the finished build. If AAM does sponosor a local Z my god someone from here take them up on that. It will be a supreme build.

Honestly a good TT build can cost 15k plus. AAM can charge a premium just because they are AAM. They do good work and fabrication and are known for it. Good reputation costs money. Peace of mind in a shop isnt cheap.

I am doing alot of the supporting mods to make sure my build IS reliable to track once in a while and daily drive some times. I am not a baller so I dont have cash to just blow on a broken car constantly also I love my 370 and dont want to damage it so reliablity is TOP priority for me.
