Yeah, I'm a little happier with the V36 now. I wonder when exactly the V36 GT-R will start to come into the country...I know of a small number of people (2) that actually have one prebought.

Hmm, I'm really stuck right now. I could blow everything on the GTS-Turbo, but then I'd be dirt poor...

I just joined. I had seen a cartoon/anime of a Z racing some other car at night (on a Z car forum) and loved it then I did al little searching and found this site.

I have loved Z cars for 25 years and always wanted a black 240 Z. 16 years ago I was (22) I found it, A blue one, I painted it black and did a minor restoration, I put a 75 280 motor in it (N42 head) with a ZX 5 speed then Koni Struts, swaybars, HKS flywheel, 16 inch Rikens, and Wilwood brakes It probably made close to 200 crank HP. I drove the car for 4 years, it had some electrical problems so I put it in storage for a while, a while turned into 10 years and in 2004 I came across the perfect reason to get it our of storage. I found a straight 6 7MGTE (Turbo Supra Motor) The engine and trans are way beefier than the Z 2.8 liter and the EFI is perfectly suited to easily double the HP or more, the transmissions are good for more than 700 HP and the head is a DOHC with an intercooler.

I decided to go crazy with the motor before I got it running. I put a huge turbo on it bigger injectors, a huge intercooler and 3 inch exhaust and intercooler plumbing everything before the turbo is 4 inch dia. Installed a tail wastegate and a Greddy blow off valve. Also I installed water methanol injection so I wouldnt have to run race gas. This set up is good for 32 psi on pump gas and makes well over 600 rear wheel hp probably over 700 crank horsepower. I have to turn the boost down for auto cross events.

This car is like a video game in real life. Vipers (any gen), C6 ZO6's, GSXR1000's, Ducati999r's Mustang's, Supras, of any type or mod are just a few of the vehicles my car has laid waste to. Before you doubt me realize this car weighs 2500lbs and has around 600 RWHP and very sticky tires, my rears only last about 9 months of weekend driving.

I love my car and it has been a ton of work and trouble but its worth it every time I take someone for a first drive, I get everything from menaical laughter, to utter silence, some dont even comment. Its only days later that a friend of theirs calls me to tell me that they were literally scared to be in my car. Boy that makes me smile. Hope the photos make you smile.

MOD, please let me know if thats too many photos and I will edit the post.

Enjoy

Its the stock Toyota ECU with some tricks to make it supply enough fuel to produce crazy HP numbers.

Thanks for the compliments.

Looks like lex afm and big inj? Maybe an afc or something? This is interesting to me because I build toyotas for a living.

I run megasquirt on my 1jz for the last year or so. Going with big cams and Holset hx35 soon. hate the stock twins. I blow them up every 6 months or so :(

Anyhow...

Just drop in a RB25 you'll be much happier in the long run. Don't get me wrong you can still find old school tunning parts for the L28. But it's a very much outdated motor mostly do to it's under developed head.

Haha, I know it's no S30, but I drive a nice 03 Tiburon. I drive the car on the mountain passes and as my DD, with an AutoX thrown in there now and again. She's got coilovers, tire and wheel, strut and sway bar upgrades and some intake and exhaust mods. I'm actually replacing the cat and exhaust later this week, because of a pesky exhaust leak that now needs to be repaired. ;)

I was hoping for a sec that you didn't tune up that hearse in the background of the first photo (the one under the tarp)... Though I gotta admit, that would be pretty funny seeing a tricked out hearse. :lol:

Anyways, nice Cefiro. GL with finishing it.
