Another New One

Hi all,

Found this forum and signed up today so I figured I should make a new member post. Recently purchased a 2007 350Z, manual, freshly imported from Japan to NZ. I was lucky enough to know the previous owner in Japan, figuring more out about the car before buying it. He would have kept it had he not had a child...Esprit were planning to do a 3.8L bore, bigger cams, compression increase, etc.

I have just attached some dealer pics, it's bit dirty ATM

It's had a fair bit of work done all around, and what I'd call "tasteful" body work mods. Very pleased with it so far, a few small things need sorting out but I'm looking forward to it all.

From the top of my head, here goes...
Engine pulled out and worked on by Esprit around 80,000kms. Head overhauled. clutch replaced.
Tomei 272 cams
Tomei Version 2 headers
Tomei Expreme Test pipes
HKS SSM Catback, not currently fitted
Takeda dual intakes
HKS M series plugs
Lots of tuning by Esprit.

Mishimoto twin core Alu radiator and silicon piping
Mishimoto fan setup
Billion Thermostat, 68c
HPI Oil cooler
All oil system o-rings and seals replaced

KW V3 coilovers
Nismo full bushing kit
Whiteline diff bushes
Megan Racing engine mounts
Godspeed ARB's
Cusco control arms
KTS rear lower arms
Work XSA 04C wheels. F19x10 R19x11
Akebono calipers
Dixcel discs

Nismo V2 bumper, skirts
Ducktail molded into the boot lid
Cold air mods to the bumper
Wheel arches widened a tad, rolled.
Repainted in the OEM silver
Asahi UV Proof glass

Random other bits
Blitz RVIT DS setup on a Phillips screen inside
Yupiteru Super Cat radar sensor and GPS multimedia thingy (gforce, altitude, speedo, etc)

There's more random stuff, but that's most of it. In future I'll be adding to that list with a Quaife diff, nismo diff cover, and another new clutch, maybe a flywheel. Also another catback exhaust.

Lots of good info here so I'm sure this will help me in figuring out the car and working on it
Cheers guys
