interesting placement..

An r35 engine (vr38dett) is very similar to the z32 engine (vg30dett) in design, and after seeing this vr38 setup i started to wonder if it would be possible for a similar setup in my Z.

I called City Of Calgary Traffic Police regarding side exhaust that pipes straight out the side fender and he said it would be fine as long as it wasn’t a 3.5″ pipe and was designed to be functional over loud. Hmm.. with that in mind i might opt to bring the exhaust to the back still then and use mufflers

I don’t really see any problems though, kind of interested to hear what opinions you might have or advice. With the intake/pop charger removed and mounted directly to the turbos, that saves all that room up front for either a FMIC or angled dual SMICs side by side.

The radiator would be relocated to the back of the car or perhaps share the front nose with the IC.. I have seen a rad relocate in person on a car that had a 2jz wedged in there so tight the rad needed to be moved for space



shop night

Rusty Speedwerks hosted a Shop Night at Bowest Motors where we learned all about older Datsuns and their unique carburetors.  a little education goes a long way 🙂 glad I made the drive to bowness, it was like being back in high school shop class again

Props and cheers to our friend Masatoshi Amisaki in Kobe-shi, Japan!  I have personally built four different Z kits, currently working on my fifth, and i’ve never seen, or thought to, custom create a bodykit.  It looks great, the wheels are fantastic, and will be a perfect match for his 1:1 scale z32
