Just picked me up a modified Z (rebuilt title), 73K miles and I need some help/guidance.

The car came with a true dual Stillen exhaust system and Takeda cold air intake, rims and its lowered like 2 inches. I got the car checked out by my mechanic before buying it and everything was OK.

Here are some questions I was hoping to get help with ....

GOAL: To make my Z a semi-daily driver (I have a beater with 225K miles for winter) that is excellent at handling. I've owned a 2007 350z before which I kept stock but the focus here is to drive this thing to make it handle as sharp as a Porsche or M3 because I love handling!

1- Where are there good mechanics in the Naperville/Aurora area that can do alignment? I have 285's in rear and 245 in the front

2- Any good performance shops in the western suburbs?

3- Any folks out in Naperville/Aurora that can connect with me?


Thanks everyone and GO cubs !
I'm also in the Aurora/Naperville area sounds like you have a decent starter Z gotta add some swaybars & will feel more planted, any shop can do a basic alignment, wouldnt fret

Wonder if I've seen you around before, I pass that Shell gas station on New York a few times a week haha
