Z32 VG30DETT TWIN TURBO SWAP 5 SPEED SWAP 300ZX

MY Twin Turbo Z! Pulled another marathon 7 day stretch in the garage and went for the first test drive yesterday afternoon. I was literally giggling like a school girl.

After priming the oiling system, the motor fired right up after just a few cranks – a real testament to Harry (Ztuner) and the quality work he does. Still have a bunch of bugs to sort out before ZCON (and I’m back to work & down to weekends wrenching only), but I couldn’t be happier! I have to break the motor in (so little to no boost), but keeping it under 5 psi and about 1/4 throttle, she felt fantastic. The JWT BB 550’s (with Abler manifolds & AshSpec breather mods) spool like crazy! Can’t wait till I can really put the hammer down.

You should have seen the strange looks I got driving around town with no hood / nose, but I couldn’t have cared less. This is two years in the making guys…you couldn’t have wiped the smile off my face if you tried.

(Click past the break for build spec’s and a few teaser shots from the build.)

I promise there are many more photos & video to come, I just need to find the time to edit it all down. As always, I seem to update the Facebook page more often – facebook.com/jsworks.org – (it’s just easier to throw up a picture and add a description as it happens). So like us over there if you want to stay current on the build.

More to come,

Jay
