Picked up this 03 350z a few months ago.
Still working on a name for her.
Originally was looking for a beater to drift, found this AAM built, Twin turbo beauty for a deal I couldn't walk away from. Got the car and decided it was too nice for a beginner like me to drift.
So, this is the new road course/autox/ and drag car.
Have a 06 STI that I've been racing and building for the last 5 years as well. The 350 is way more fun though.
Bought the car with some issues, and had to rework a few things to get it to run. (Fuel related). After she got moving again, it started smoking on decel. Leakdown and compression tests are pointing toward exhaust valves and valve seals.
Winter in ND last about 6-7 months so I decided it was the perfect time to pull the motor and give it a health check. Motor is out and I started the teardown. That's where I'm sitting now.
