I purchased my Z in May '14. The Z was originally the shop car for Akuma Motorsports in NJ. I have a lot of plans for her and ultimately want to go FI. Still on the fence if I want to go Turbo or Supercharger. I will be doing a lot of research to decide which route I go.

I just acquired a set of Stillen G3 intakes. I have not installed them yet due to painting them wrinkle black.

Since I don't have any performance mods yet, I am taking the Z to a local shop today to get a baseline dyno. I will post the results this afternoon.

Thanks guys! I just got back from getting a baseline dyno. I have to say, I was not expecting to see very good numbers but I ended up with 294 WHP and 240 TQ. Not too bad for completely stock. Now let the modding begin!

Stillen G3's finally installed... After a long battle with the wrinkle paint I decided to go with a flat black.

Just wanted to give you guys an update since it has been a while... Deployed life... Just purchase a set of SPL rear camber arms. Also wanted to thank Mike @ SPL for hooking me up with an awesome price on the camber arms. Can't wait to get back to the states to install them.

Now I just need to find a shop that can do an alignment on my car. Seems that there are no shops in the Charleston SC area that can align lowered cars. If anyone on here in the Chucktown area can recommend anyone, that would be great.

I have a few more parts on my want list that I am trying to buy while I am deployed, I just have to convince the wife. #1 on the list right now is a FI CBE & test pipes.

I am finally back in the states from my deployment. This weekend I was able to install my SPL rear camber arms. These things are solid and glad I went with these arms.

Here they are installed.


I also have the toe bolts but I will have to tackle that next weekend.

Washed the Z today, man she looks good! Next mod is definitely going to be 20/25 mm spacers though.

Thank you sir. Little by little my Z is coming along. Spacers and test pipes are next. Then I will be taking my Z to a local shop for an EcuTek tune. Can't wait!

So I had the raise up the Z after the FI CBE install, these cans hang super low! But I think I got it to the right height now. I put the apex of the fender arch at 26" (I was at 25"). This height seems right on point, I have not scraped anything yet, even on the speed bumps around here. Also just put on a fresh coat of wax, so I had to get a photo of the Z looking fresh out in the sun!

Took the Z to a local dyno day event. I wanted to see where I'm at after the G3s and FI CBE.

Ended up with almost 304 rwhp and 244 ft/lbs tq.
