I figured I would give you all an update on a car well known in these parts (as it was built in the Zed Shed)
It's the *used to be blue supercharged 370z. Now orange and black.
I've had the car about 6 months now and done quite a bit to it.
First job was to give it to Horsham developments for a full service, check over, and a ECUTEK remap. They found a few issues with the car.
The blow off valve was totally seized up. The air filter was attached with cable ties, it also had boost leaks.
I noticed under heavy acceleration the clutch was slipping, I believe it was on the original so I opted for the JWT heavy duty clutch and fly wheel. I replaced the slave cylinder at the same time. I want as much power as I can squeeze out of it so I opted to fit a smaller pulley to the GTM supercharger. After the map it came out at 491bhp which I'm pretty impressed with, but I want more....
Cosmetically the blue wrap had about had it's day so I've gone for a sunset orange showing off more of the carbon bonnet and invested in a pair of Morimoto headlights which quite frankly, transform the front of the car.
Next job is solid pipes to prevent future boost leaks and maybe a bigger supercharger. I'll probably forge the engine too,
I'm also putting in a large tablet to modernise the interior
Anyway, I figured you may appreciate the update. I have posted some pics below. I hope to see you at a meet soon
