VEHICLE STORY

Bought the car in 2011. I grew up loving the Z plat form when I was younger my dad had a 300zx and I absolutely loved it, it was my favorite car and it wasn't mine. I was convinced that a Z will be the car I have when I get older. So after a couple years my dad sold the 300 and bought a Mercedes but that never changed my mind Fast forward about 15 yrs I have my first daughter so having a two seater was out of the question now so that left the 350z out. So a buddy of mine was driving a G coupe as a rental and decided to take me for a ride and I loved it. It reminded me of when I was younger riding in my dads 300 so I said this is the car I have to get. So I did! After getting the car in 2011 I blew my first engine in 2013 (lac of oil) so got a new engine and ran that for for an other 2 yrs and then blew that one... so in 2015 I said screw it I'm going to completely build an engine from scratch with foraged internals and go boost. So I started building with my budget set for 6k (LOL) I bought my turbo kit for 2500 and bought my internals for my short block. So then things started I took my block to the machine shop and it was about 400 more than what I was expecting to pay then on of that I got the same size pistons as the cylinder wall and the short block was used so the side walls where warn down so I had to buy new pistons but I couldn't just return the pistons I had I had them custom made for 9.5:1 compression.turbos the exhaust fans were chewed up and the turbos had some shaft play so there goes an other 900 also the injectors that came with the kit were also bad so I had to buy new ones so by this time I was already over my budget

Looks so mean! And looks like it has the power to back it up, well done!
