Okay. So a little about myself. I am a former Marine who does private contracting now. So I can be a little abrasive at times just don't take it personal

Okay. So a little about myself. I am a former Marine who does private contracting now. So I can be a little abrasive at times just don't take it personal or I will have to tell you to grow thicker skin.

I have a 2009 370z Touring with Sports Package/Navigation. She is sitting at home awaiting for construction to take place. All that I have done to it is installed an under drive pulley from stillen and 2 drop in k&n air filters. I have only been to the track twice in my life and that was with this car. The best time I could pull was a 13.6 at 105. My trap is there but I just need a better 60 footer.

I really look forward to talking to everyone and getting some good input on parts and where to buy and so forth. My plan while I am overseas is to do full bolt on's with a 100 wet shot. Currently my base dyno with out the pulley and just drop in air filters was 285whp 236tq.

I currently have an excel spread sheet with current parts and costs and what not that I plan to do. If anybody would like to review it just let me know and maybe we can collaborate on ideas. I don't plan to go F/I until probably a couple more years, I still want to wait and see what else comes out for this car.
Here is a video of my car just air filters vs my buddies stock GTO Auto

Welcome to the forum! What he means is the old Marine phrase, "Once a Marine, Always a Marine!" but oh well.

Sure, throw that spreadsheet up here and we can all take a look at it and help you get your build where you want it. There are a lot of DIY's also on how to install them yourself in the event you can't find a reputable shop overseas. We have a ton of good vendors who can ship internationally too. So whatever you're looking for, we can help you with it, or at least get you pointed in the right direction.

Ya I kinda figured, I should have just said no longer on active duty. I have a buddy who will be doing all the work for me on my car. He is just waiting for me to order the parts and tell him to put them on. Here is the spread sheet. FYI I am knew to all of this modding cars and what not so my knowledge is limited. Okay how do I attach it? I tried making it into a word doc and and won't accept my excel spreadsheet. Any ideas on what to do.

May have to just copy it text for text on here...

If you save it as a .doc file it might accept it. Or open the Excel sheet, make a screen shot and save that as an image. Then you can load the image itself.

Okay screen shot and pdf was the only way I could get it going. Let me know if you have any issues looking at it.

We're having a huge Southeast GTG at Z1 on March 19. I think it would benefit you to come if you can. Plus it will be a lot of fun. There will be Zs with all types of set ups there dynoing. That way you will have an opportunity to hear the exhaust live and decide with mods to go with.

The link for the GTG is below. Let me know if you can make it. You can bring friends with you if you don't want to ride alone. They don't have to be Z owners.

SouthEast MEGA Gathering/Meeting. March 19th, 2011!

Man I wish I could make it but currently I am in Afghanistan. Where I live in the NC there isn't much of a Z based fan set up. I tried to get a club going of my own there but it was a flop nobody replied to my post ads. The closest club is about 2 hours away from me but it seems they are about to die out they don't do much together. It sounds good though bro, I have the same color Z so it was nice to see your vids.

I know exactly what you're talking about. We try to stay active here in ATL. There's only a handful of us to gather regularly. My buddy and I just try to plan different GTGs to get people together. There are quite a few 370Zs in the ATL area. We're still trying to meet them and get them out.
