Thanks to Sharif, as well Eric and his crew at CP Racing in Charlotte, NC, the GReddy TT in my Z is performing up to par for the first time since it was installed in February, 2004. I was most impressed by the attention paid to detail and open communication. This was very importatnt to me as I had the Z trailered to CP Racing and was unable to be present during any of the tuning or mechanical alterations.

They rewired the ECU/e-manage, fixed a leaky oil fitting, sealed exhaust leaks, re-routed a power steering line and upgraded the line to SS, installed a new suspension and tuned the car in house. They sent her off to be dropped, corner weighted and aligned. All perfect and delivered on time for a reasonable fee.

No CELS, idle is perfect and the motor pulls like a madman. :thumbsup:

Very nice numbers Sharif! I'm guessing that you want this thing to last for a while?

ayman, Sharif can hook you up on anything, shoot him a PM or give him a call, knows what he is talking about and always has great prices! (he won't give you anything free, but he'll definitely do all he can to get you the best price! :) )

Nice. I'm sure you're extremely glad to have it back, I can't even imagine what it would be like to wait that long. Honestly, I would have given up after 6 months.

Weak sauce... :jk:

I can't imagine what that feels like, so I'll just have to go out and get mine turboed. Yeah, right. Those numbers look like they can get you in and out of sticky situations. :clap:

Many thanks for all the kind words. Forum members have been very helpful during the course of this project.

There are no modifications to the transmission...yet. Eric & Sharif road tested the car...results / In full automatic she will hit the rev limiter at WOT. In manual she is fine.

My driving habits don't call for much WOT from a standing start. On the way home I kicked her in the pants in full auto rolling about 70 and the transmission was smooth ...acceleration instantaneous. I did not hit the rev limiter.

Since I am concerned about the longevity of the transmission, Eric is on the lookout for suitable upgrades. I plan on adding a larger transmission fluid cooler soon. No plans yet for valve body, ECU reflash or low stall torque converter. Researching all the current options and waiting for new developments.

Wow Kenny. It's good to finally see what hard work, tons of patience, and the right amount of money will finally do. I'm glad you have her in a condition you are satisfied with and you have not given in to those who say you should have shot for higher numbers.

Thanks for proving it can be done and done right Kenny! :yourock: Your car has set the bar for the built VQ's endurance under F/I. Congrats on the build. It's hard to be patient through the painful process. Now you can finally sit back and enjoy the drive. :shiftdrive:

Thanks for the assistance while I was in town Andy. Looking forward to a return visit and keep us up-to-date on the next Vortec tuning session.

Kenny I was wondering where you were having your exhaust leaks...cause I myself am having a **** of a time with exhaust leaks. Finally got all of them right cause of new gaskets but still having problems with the three bolt flange from the manifold to the turbo. One of the bolts keeps backing itself off and we have had to make special "crows foot" type tools to try to tighten it. Used lock washers and lock tite and still having problems. :doh: So just wondering if im the only one having problems with these exhaust leaks. Im dying to dyno tune the car but don't want to do that until I fix the leaks cause the O2 sensors are not getting the right readings and are just completely dumping fuel at the time being. Obviously im not driving the car like this. Im just looking for some help on these exhaust leaks. Thanks James
