Hey guys, thought I might share my ZX build with you guys, I have had this car for approximately 7-8 months, some of you may remember it being for sale in Melbourne. It was advertised as being 'the perfect 500hp Japanese supercar' with in excess of 100k spent on it LOL. Sadly, as I found out within 2 months of owning, it was not even close to being perfect nor was it close to 500hp...... :bash: The 60k+ worth of invoices I was supplied with turned out to be merely quotes for work, not actual work carried out. :bash: She had 400hp, and some of the poorest quality work done to it, the 'match porting' looked like it had been carried out by a 2 year old as did the 'custom manifolds and dump pipes' for the td04 turbos she had been fitted with........ I love Nissans, I love Z's and despite being ripped so hard that my ass was almost bleeding, I decided to take it on the chin and work all of its issues out..... [TIS] So, the build started with me upgrading the side mounts to Z1 BA's, throwing on Z1 2.5" ic piping and taking her to the dyno to check the tune and adjust if necessary for the extra air flow and iron out a stalling issue she had, Unfortunately the Dyno came back with a crappy 240rwkw due to fueling issues caused by leaking injectors(also causing stalling) and failing VTC gears. :lame: So, I jumped on Z1's website and ordered there 740cc nismo injector+300 degree fuel rail kit, some BDE vtc gears and then went onto the wiring specialtys website and ordered a brand new engine bay harness and gearbox harness...... The time came to change it all over, after removing the plenum and installing the injectors, fuel rail and VTC gears, I realised I was in over my head with the harness, so I found a nice young Z enthusiast by the name of Deano Lakis on the facebook forums and he offered to help, so I had the old girl towed to his workshop and the games began........ Deano is 1 of those guys who wont bullshit you, each problem he found he would take a photo of and/or show me if I was present when he found the problem, and OH MY GOD did he find a shit ton of problems, By this stage, the love affair was in full flight, I had already lost in excess of 25k to this girl so I figured (17.5k purchase price plus 7.7k in parts/labour), whats another 5 to 10k to get her perfect? As with almost all builds, things got out of hand really fast, initially I was buying replacement high end parts to replace worn or broken items, soon I found myself replacing perfectly good items just because.....well shit, it looks old and all that stuff looks new :zlove: Approximately 75k later I/we are close to being done...... Ive thrown in some pics of how she looked at point of sale, some of you may remember her.
