VG30DETT Z32 TT SWAP 300ZX 5 SPEED SWAP

For a while, I almost thought this day would never come… Two years, two cars, countless man hours (and plenty of  dollars & frustration) have gotten me to this point, but it’ll all be worth it in the end. Especially when I put the hammer down for the first time and feel all 450HP under my foot!

I’m 7 straight (10+ hour) days into the swap, and boy am I exhausted. I was trying to get her finished before starting a new edit gig the end of this week, but there just weren’t enough hours in the day. I’d say I’m at about the halfway point, but most of the “hard” work is done. So for now, it’s back to the big city for me – the Z will have to wait till I get some more time off in July. I’m incredibly happy to have gotten to this point though, and figure I’ve got a good solid 7 or so more days in the garage to get it all finished up. Pushing to have it ready for ZCON in Nashua, New Hampshire this August. There’s a track day that Thursday that I’m hoping will be the Z (and my) maiden voyage on the track!

I’ve been taking plenty of pictures, and am grateful that an old friend has spent a few days in the garage filming with me as well. I plan to do full write ups on everything that’s been done to the car, but I just don’t have the time now. I’ve been updating the Facebook page daily though, so if you want a sneak peak into what’s going on, stop by and “like” us over there – facebook.com/jsworks.org

Wanted to drop a quick note here and let you all know that progress is being made. Super stoked right now! A lot more to come.

Stay tuned,

Jay
