300zx racecar

Post by martysauce » Fri Feb 02, 2018 3:12 pm

hi guys i have had z32s for about 7 years now, my 1st one was when i was 17 its a grey turbo manual 2+2. I then bought a red turbo auto parts car a couple years ago and early last year i bought a very tidy 1997 turbo manual in black. Anyway my grey one has been off the road for a long time while i atempt to turn it into a race car and i would like to show you guys progress along the way.
I have already done alot to the car eg adjustable suspension, hicas delete , adjustable camber arms , 3" dual straight pipe that dumps just befor the diff, 18x10 work meisters with potenza 265 semi slicks on the back (could only afford the 2 at the moment haha) sparco bucket seats, interior removed , link ecu, 2 oil coolers, i had z1 ba side mounts but i am planing on changing the intercooler set up and piping.

the engine was rebuilt a few years ago but the dodgy builder has dissaperd and that engine lasted 2500kms before it wore out so shes back to a very dirty factory engine with all the deletes ( from the red tt auto)

i will add photos when i work out how there on my phone and i dont no how to put them on my computer also please excuse my spelling it isnt my strong point.

im going to try relocate the balance tube to use the old holes in the plenum for the pcvs and run an8 braided line around the back of the engine so i dont need to remove it for anything to do with spark plugs or coils

this is almost how it stands now apart from ive welded some plate onto the rails by the strut towers. the wheels are just hanging there for reference the are 11.5x18s so quite big altho i probably wont be running something quite that big.

im having ago at making a removable tube front, there will be a steel tube coming off the rail next to the strut tower following were the fender mounts then cutting across to the chasis rail on each side then some bars bettwen for rad and bumper support
