Thumbs up Time for more BOOST!

Fellow Gearheads;

The time has come... for more BOOST! Looks like right after Christmas I will be placing the order to start building my long block. Kyle over at Import Parts Pro in Spring will be doing the engine assembly. The Z will be headed to PowerFab off of 1960 after the first of the year for installation and tuning. Hopefully I'll be seeing 600+whp by March. Below you can find "The List." Hope everyone is doing well and has a GREAT Christmas!

Nice - I have a similar build (also from IPP). I'm having issues controlling and calming the idle but the Haltech seems to be the way to go.

Looking forward to the progress - keep us updated

What injectors do you have? Heard the injector Dynamics help a lot also.

running Deatchwerks 600s…the current problem is the idle is all over the map (0rpm to 1700rpm). the Haltech is fighting the OEM computer for idle control. The mechanic & I have a few tricks up our sleeves but right now it's being looked at.

What FI do you have - I think I remember you having greddy twins?

What's your turn-around date for getting your block back / installed & tuned up?

I believe HalTech is releasing a newer EMS for the VQ to help with the idle issue.

I have the JWT 700BB kit. Hoping to have the car ready for TX2k12 in March.

That's one helluva list. It looks impressive. Will your car be mainly used at shows?

I plan to do everything I do now with it. Daily*, shows, drag, HPDE, cruises, etc...

*I plan on buying a second car due to wife & I are trying to have our first child. We lost one last month. :( But looking forward to coming home and trying again.

I was considering selling it for a GT-R or CTS-V. However I don't want to start over on car payment that high. Plus I know I couldn't leave them stock. So figured just finish the Z. 600whp+ is the goal.

Well good news and bad... Today I will be ordering the long block. However I was informed that I can't take my R&R in March. No TX2K12... No Texas Mile... No celebrating my 10th Wedding Anniversary at home with my wife. :( Hopefully I'll be home in April now. Almost a full year from seeing the States. Any events in April?

That sucks to hear. Been there and done that when I missed a couple of good anny's and events.
