Valy's 370z GT build

Recommended Posts

Well well well...here we go again :ninja:

 

New car = new project...or so goes right...:doh:

 

Picked up a 2010 370z GT 7AT in black about 3 weeks ago.Call me an old man but I left in the past any manual gearboxes :shrug:.It was a deal too good to be missed ,so decided that the rocket bunny 350z will be sold for parts and the 370 will take it's place and I have to say I haven't looked back since I stepped foot in the 370.One of the key things for me was the interior which is miles better then the 350. obviously the extra power comes also at extra cost but happy with it overall.

 

Here are a few older snaps of it as I didn't get the chance to get any new ones yet:

the only thing changed to it were the wheels , powdercoated in black.

 

Knew the previous owner had a small oil leak from the radiator and after investigating decided to bite the bullet and order this beauty from Torqen,since a new radiator was the best solution:

package arrived about a week later and got it all sorted Thanks @Adrian@TORQEN

Next on the list was an exhaust and managed to pick up this setup from another 370 owner:

 

Akrapovic Evolution exhaust paired with Berk High Flow cats

not fitted yet but hopefully this weekend if my new gaskets and bolts get delivered in time and then will be able to film a  few clips of it and the difference it will make :D

 

Also decided to order a new MeisterR ZetaCRD suspension today which should arrive by the end of the week

This time around I have decided will keep the car static rather then on air ,although I have part of the Airlift kit ready to use if I wanted to go in this direction.

 

More things to come soon ;)

Was hoping you'd set up another project thread once I found out you'd purchased this. Looking forward to seeing how it progresses; no doubt it'll be just as awesome as the 350 :thumbs:
