Hey everybody, i thought id be smart and make a build thread keeping track of all of the goodies that will be going onto the 370Z

I Picked up a 2009 Base / Touring around Early June in 2017, had 100k miles, and probably over payed because where i live all car dealers and used dealers are scammers. Bad.

The Backstory: Between 350Z,s and 370Zs have always been my dream car, and when my old 02 Toyota Celica started to fall apart, it was time for a car that d be fun, and more competitive on the track. I opted for the dream car, because why not.

The Z intends to see a LOT of track time, between normal track days, and Global Time Attack (Starting off in enthusiast until i can afford a nice LSD and everything), Corner 3 Nissan Challenge, and local autocross. Maybe SCCA autocross in the future.

Thank you to my amazing Current Sponsors/Supporters!!

Of course! I think theres about ~5K in parts on the floor of my garage and still on order.
Probably wont take pictures until its around time for the install, or have a way to lay them all out and take a 1 giant picture of them

Default Front Lip to Splitter

Im considering the Shine Auto Type - S front lip, not only does it make the car look more agressive, i could probably stand to benefit by combining it with a front splitter.

The lip would fix the inward bend of the bumper making better downforce, because itll be more flat? Thats where im heading with it

That and it should help with a "Bumper mounted" Splitter, since entry low level Time attack groups do not allow frame mounted... It should help there? Maybe.

Nothing will probably get installed until beginning of 2018 anyways so i have time to mull it over

Picked up some Powertrix 12k/11k Coilovers from a forum member. Walked away with a lip and sideblades too.

Also took a road trip to Corner 3 Motorsports in LA and met John, talked about a lot of stuff and got some advice on some mods i didn't think of to plan out for the Z.

Default New Tint!

So i finally got the crappy old tint from the previous owner removed.

It was absolutely unbearable, not only did it look like crap, it made driving a pain in the but. You couldnt see out the rear window because it was so hazy and bubbled.


I went with a 35% front Tint and 5% Rear and pilot windows. It looks so much better with the black paint.



Still a lot of mods sitting in the garage, and still on the way. Should hopefully drop off a lip i picked up to get wrapped to match the car soon

35% Seems good enough though. I like but dislike limo tint in the rear.

Trying to see behind you at night, goodluck. Even during the day its a tad dark..

When you look at the car though, my god does it look great. That and i know for a fact my car should never get broken into for whats in my trunk. You cant even see inside it.

Supply crate from John at Corner 3 Motorsports.



In the box was the hotckis front sway bar, SPL Rear Traction arms, Front Tie Rod Ends, and some cool Corner 3 Shirts!!

This about wraps up suspension, im just waiting on some rubber spring boots to replace the rotted ones on the Z right now.

Small install, threw it in with some more goodies from Z1 and Winding Road Racing that showed up this week.

Was about a 2 minute install, relatively easy compared to what it going to take to install what came with it

Changed the look of the inside a bit in my opinion, definitely a fan of the red. Only grouch is unlike the stock white one its not back-lit at night, but its not a big deal. Ill get used to it eventually.
