Default S14's 40th Anniversary 370z

I've had my car for nearly 2 years now, I suppose its time to start a thread...

In an effort to avoid boosting the Z, I went pretty much as far as you can go NA without building the engine. If I'm honest, a modded Z is plenty fast for the street. Unfortunately I could not fight the itch for boost, I tried and tried but in the end it was too strong, I just had to see the Z get its rightful twins, I placed an order on 2/13/12 for a GTM stage 1 TT kit.

Current Mods:

Performance:
Stillen G3 CAI
CNT Test Pipes
Invidia Gemini Catback
Stillen UD Pulley
Competition Clutch Flywheel
4.08 Final Drive w/Nismo Diff cover

GTM Stage 2 Twin Turbo Kit w/internal wg's (thread)
Turbonetics dual-port internal actuators
1050CC ASNU Injectors
CJM Stage 0 fuel return w/Aeromotive 340LPH pump
Southbend Flywheel
Southbend Stage 3.5 Clutch
ZSpeed CSC
RJM AFP Clutch Pedal
Quaife ATB LSD with 3.5 final drive
Setrab 25 row Oil Cooler
CSF Radiator
Mishimoto Radiator
2013+ Coolant Expansion tank
GTR Spec-V Radiator Cap (180kPa)
Zspeed aluminum undershroud
Berk Test Pipes
AAM 2.5" Exhaust
SwainTech White Lightning coated manifolds, turbine housings and downpipes
UpRev Dyno tuned @ RealAutoDynamics
RealAutoDynamics Turbo coolant lines

Internals: (thread)
Wiseco 96mm 10:1 pistons
K1 Rods w/ARP bolts
ARP L19 Head studs
ARP Main Studs
Cosworth Head gaskets
Calico coated OEM bearings

Suspension:
TWM Short Shifter
Powertrix UL Coilovers (12k/10k)
KW V3 Coilovers
Stillen Swaybars
265 RE-11 Up front, 295 Toyo Proxes R888 out back
Z1 Urethane Motor Mounts
Z1 Urethane Transmission Mount
Whiteline Differential Bushings

Brakes
Goodridge SS Lines
Endless MX72 Pads
Z1 2-piece drilled and slotted front rotors
Z1/BPI drilled and slotted rear rotors
ATE Super Blue fluid

Visually Stimulating Enhancements:
Stillen Side Skirts
Sunline Rear Spats
Nismo front bumper
AeroJacket Carbonfiber hood
Z1 Hood struts
Forgestar F14 19x9.5+15 19x11+20
JDM Fog Light
GTR Start Button (bitches love big red buttons)

I honestly don't have a lot of good pictures of the car or parts. Its pretty sad how lazy I got with documenting this build considering all the writeups and pictures I did for my last car (S14.5).

Im going to try to change that moving forward; I will update this thread with all future installs, including the TT kit which I will be installing myself.

Heres a few shitty iphone pictures:

The rear of the Z with Sunline addons and painted valance is my personal favorite:








The Stillen side skirts look like they were made for the Sunline rear, its a perfect match and most people ask me if this is the factory kit:


Playing hide and seek, the sneaky bitch:


Thats all for now, I'll be installing the powertrix coils and brake pads/lines hopefully before the TT kit arrives, so I'll have some more updates then.

Default Powertrix coilovers installed

Finally installed my Powertrix Ultralite Coilovers (12k/10k springs). Yes I am aware my iphone camera pictures are pretty shitty but I finally found my camera charger so I should have better pictures for future installs









I got the drop pretty damn even for the first try, I need to tweak it just a bit but otherwise im pretty happy with the height.





I haven't put many miles on them yet but so far the car feels great, I have the front at basically full soft(2/15) and the rears slightly stiffer(4/15) to help with "stepping out" toe issue the 370 is notorious for over bumps. The ride is not harsh or bouncy at all, and it handles way better than stock, steering/turn in feels much more direct and the car feels more confident at higher speeds.

yeah I have no idea what I want to do to there yet, I haven't come across anything that I'm in love with. I'm also convinced I'll rip anything I put on the front clean off

INGS was one of the first lips thats caught my eye though

What do you think of the Stillen skirts, and how is fitment? Do you think it was a noticeable enough change to merit gong through with the mod?

Fitment is great, but they did have some quality issues, first pair I got I ended up needing a replacement for one of them. They are also quite a bit heavier than stock due to the material, some kind of heavy duty ABS plastic stuff. With that said I would still do it again and I would recommend them, I would just carefully inspect the pieces before sending them to be painted.

I think they look great and I love the way they match the shine auto rears, I get a lot of compliments on them. By itself the changes are subtle, but put a stock Z side by side and you would see the difference immediately.

Just a quick update, got a few parts in:

Quaife ATB LSD, going into a used 350z open diff with 3.5 final drive




PLX Wideband and Vac/Boost sensors and 2 of their new DM-6 multi-sensor touch gauges



These 2 gauges are temporary. I have some big plans for gauge setup in the Z, at first I thought about getting 3 gauges and sticking them in the stock location, but I gave it some more thought and since I would like to do data logging and have the ability to see more than 3 sensors at any given time without having gauges mounted everywhere I decided to do something custom.

I won't go into too many details yet but I'll be making use of the cubby, a 5-7" LCD, an ARM based PC (RaspberryPi) and the serial protocol that these PLX sensors have graciously documented. That won't happen for another 1-2 months however as I am waiting on delivery of the Raspberry.

Waiting to hear back from Sam about a price on upgrading my soon-to-be-shipped stage 1 kit to the new GTX2863r turbos, in the short term with low boost the GTX doesn't offer much advantages over the old GT2860r, but if I decided to build the block in the future they would be fully capable of over 600whp with incredible spool, looking at the compressor graphs they have amazing flow at 18psi+
