Very inspiring Unknown. Burn my wallet down!

I have a similar list in the front of myv journal. I'm logging in every thought I have and info I can gather about do's and donts when I mod. The opening list looks similar. its a great way to go for a Z with minimal issues. Don't forget brake fluid upgrades for tracking.

When going through this break in period may I suggest.
1. Aftermarket rotors pads and lines.
2. Stillen brake cooling kit.
3. 25 row oil cooler

@ 5000 miles after your choice oil change.
Then I would consider.

Intake, short tube headers and exhaust
Suspension setup of choce
Possibly forced induction???

Congrats on your new ride. Enjoy your journey with your new Z.
Yea the 1st oil change was done at 1,800 mils according to carfax. Im going to see what the stock pads can do at the track. The only thing ill change on brake system will be Motul 500 brake fluid, ive used it before and its amazing how good it is for track days. Then eventually get some decent pads.
Oil cooler is going for sure, Im Terrified if Forced induction, I know many ppl with aftermarket FI and there is always something that holds you back because of it. There is always one bad thing or another.
Coilovers FTW

I have NO Clue about the seats but I think they might be base seats covered with leather.

Look like the Katzkin seat covers, over a base seat.

Nice choice of car!
