Thanks for the heads up Roger. I'm sure SGP Racing will take good care of me. So far they are hands done the BEST customer service and friendliest bunch I've ever worked with.
+1 on SGP. my dad's 300zx is there, and they've helped me when i was short parts or had a question. my kit was missing injectors so just dropped by and picked some up.

by the way, great build. i'm having issues with my stock block right now... due to lack of tuning yet and stupid split second 16 psi mistake. But, as soon as i get her running and get a utec i'm headed to SGP for a tune. Hope to touch your whp number. you have a great list of parts, so i'm jealous. I can't afford all the best parts, but i do what i can. But beautiful job man.

Just ordered; Gallery - Original Dress Up Parts in Belmont Blue. I just want a really clean engine bay.

Also placed 3rd in the Import class at a local meet. First place was a 50's MG and 2nd was a Mid 90's NSX. Here is a quick pics of the Z from the show.

your car is beautiful, but i love the 240/60/80Z parked next to you. I had a 75 280z the same color.. i miss it more than anything.

by the way, are you pushing 10 psi on completely stock internals? was your dyno at 10psi? Did mark say that would be fine long term?

It was cool meeting you at SGP a couple weeks ago. I was there picking up an SR from eric. Gotta show me the car next time!!

By the way, you're running a JWT flywheel right? How do you like it?

Went up to Austin yesterday with a buddy to drop off his S/C Viper at American Racing Tech; http://www.americanracingtech.com/. While we were there I went ahead and put the Z on thier DynoJet. Since I was over-boosting (I need to build my motor :eek:) we only took it to 6500rpms. Pull were in 4th gear and sadly didn't get a good torque reading. However did pull a 438.84whp.

New pads coming my way. Gonna try out these Performance Friction (PFC) 1038 on the front.

QUOTE
Performance Friction (PFC) 1038 pads can be used for daily driving as well as light to medium duty track use. Excellent cold bite and friction level. Surprisingly low dust and low noise for a pad that can be taken to the race track on weekends. Ideal for track events and driving schools for drivers who would rather not swap between street and track pads.

:D Just placed an order for Enkei RPF1 (18x9.5 +15 & 18x10.5 +15) http://www.enkei.com/rpf1.html Sadly they are on back order till May 17th. :(



And working on a possible sponsorship with Yokohama. So I plan on running 245/35-18 & 275/35-18 Yokohama Advan A008. They are a new tire not yet released to the public. They will be replacing the Advan A048.

You will see me at the local tracks with them on.

Robert, all I gotta say is that is one sweet ride, bro. I'm jealous :) Wish I had TT and 438 whp....

Those wheels look great. Let us know what the Nittos look like on there as well. The last couple sets of tires I've had have been Nitto, and I like them--good bang for the buck IMO. They ain't gonna last long with THAT motor though ;)
