cool, you have about $16,000 worth of mods planned already. You should maybe consider some coilovers too!

That powerhouse amuse titanium rear strut and the zele front strut will probably make $5,000 of that $16,000...

Better get that volks order in fast, supposedly prices skyrocket in a few days!

Really, is there a reason?

Also, long list, but looking forward to seeing your car evolve.

I don't have a bleeding clue what the reason is, but fact of the matter is, Volks are going up. Dunno how much though.

And from the looks of this list...it won't matter too much lol

This car makes me

Yeah Reaper, did you know those bars cost that much? That strut bar is like 2400 shipped alone.

I want to spare no expense with my Z. My goal is to turn my Z into what it could have been if nissan had built it as a supercar from the ground up like the GTR. So yea I know that strut is thousands of dollars, so yes that will be one of the last things I buy for the car haha

I can't help but notice that there aren't any AAM products on your list...haha.

Seriously, though, that's a nice list you have set up. When the day comes that you decide what F/I route you want to go with, let me know. We have a sweet TT kit in the works that's good for around 500WHP.

Ive heard some good things about AAM! I will def let you know when FI is on the horizon.

UPDATE: CF engine bay dress up from Password: JDM was at my door today. Lemme tell you these are wonderful pieces of dry CF!!! I really wish Password: JDM will take the time to develop more products for the 370 just like they have for the GTR!

If your looking for a great mod, def get these. In addition to the stillen gen 3 intakes, my engine bay looks amazing!

Recieved Z34 bride japan seat rails today from Mike B.!

Product in good condition, shipped well (and free )

And Mike was helpful in answering any questions and shipping fast! So if anyone every wants to buy some of his old parts, including his Bride japan fixed seats I believe he still has for sale, then be sure to do buisness with him!


NOW can anyone help me out? Im looking to get the bride cuga seats, but really want the japan edition cause of the entire seat being buckskin material. I have searched everywhere but no one has them. Anybody?
