2006 350z NA Build - A 350z Gt3

What: I want to make the best possible NA 350z. The equivalent of a Porsche GT3 for a 350z.

Why: I love the NA engine and drivetrain. It is why I bought the car. If I wanted turbos, I'd have bought an STI. I get that there's more bang for my buck with Turbos. I do not care- for the same reason people buy the Porsche GT3 when a GT2 is more powerful.

Car: 2006 350z Track, 200,000km

Constraints:
- Needs to remain neutral to drive - I like the balance of the 350z
- Uses 98 octane or e85 flex fuel
- Keep torquey mid range (a defining characteristic of the VQ35 range)
- Completely streetable
- Aussie parts where possible
- No pointless aero or styling changes. I like the look of a normal 305z.

Current Power: 190 rwKW, 306Nm (Dynoed at Tunehouse, April 2015)

Already done previously:
- MCA suspension (Made in Australia)
- Front control arm bushes replaces
- Air Filter
- Piggy Back ECU


Mechanics Selected:
RP Customs - Excellent quality of work. They specialize in Evos. My brother in law uses them. They do not compromise on quality.

Parts:
To deliver the objective the following parts have been selected. In order from Intake to Exhaust/Driveline

Intake
- Jenvey Individual Thottle Bodies

Engine
- Heads worked (valve seats bored etc) (sending to Canada)
- Cams and Valves TBD (Waiting on Jim Wolf)
- Bottom End Honed (Australia)
- ID 725 Injectors

ECU:
- Link ECU (Flex Fuel) (from New Zealand)

Exhaust
- Tomei Exhaust Manifold (ceramic coated)
- Exhaust (TBD - custom made in Australia)

Driveline
- Direct (Brand) Twin Plate clutch and flywheel (Made in Australia)
- Rebuild gear box (I like the gearbox as it is - it's fun)
- Quaife Mechanical LSD

Traction - do driveline first, test, then build traction package. Below is where my current thinking is at
- Keep MCA suspension (made in Australia)
- Replace control arms (TBD)
- RPF1 rims
- Wider rear and front track to manage the power

Brakes
- Keep as is. The brembos are strong.

Progress:
- Scoped project
- Detailled build plan (Excel)
- Rough Budget
- Driveline Out
- Ordered parts, sent gearbox to be built


I'll keep posting updates as we progress. I'm in no hurry.
