    Default 300zx Twin turbo Manual Stance Build

    Hello, everyone! I am Ed, as I have bought my first 300zx I decided to create a build thread to show others what I am going to be doing and to ask stupid newbie questions

    So few weeks ago I have bought my first 1991 twin turbo manual 2+2 300zx. Before that I had r33,s13 and loads of bmw`s. Z is a JAP import spec, 43 000 mix of miles and Km, shell is pretty much rust free besides few bubbles on the boot lid.

    Engine has been rebuilt 2000 miles ago so it runs spot on,it is currently on a stock boost. I am waiting for the stage 1 turbonoz chip to arrive, so that will take me to around 380-420 bhp with a 15 psi boost, more than enough !

    Current plans for the car is Coilovers, Full car wrap, new wheels, engine mods, body mods like side skirts, splitter, diffuser, exhaust, making interior as clean as possible.

    I have also started a youtube channel for this car just to keep the records of everything what i am going to be doing on it first video ever: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U5gqIG1Z2eI

    I will keep my thread updated once any job is done! Thank you for reading, here is few pics of how it is currently looking

    Today I have worked on installing GReddy Profec B Spec 2 boost controller. Never done that before and I thought that I need to take the car to someone more experienced.

    I have struggled to find any useful information for twin turbo engines but after watching one video which was super unclear and going through a diagram decided to try it anyway.

    It was actually super easy and decided to do a DIY video in case anyone else needs help here is a link : https://youtu.be/LU17Wj6mHXM

    I have faith that this is gonna get really good, and as a fellow noob I salute you for having the cajones to dive in head-first with this thing. Kinda hard to go wrong with a turbo 300zx.

    Yesterday was a challenging day, got the tyres mounted and decided to fit them. Rear went kind allright but I had to roll the arch which wasnt a problem, but the front was touching a caliper ( due to a supplier sending me wrong ET wheels, obviously my fault for not checking). Had a 10mm spacer to try on but it was still touching slightly so that means I need around 12 mm spacer. I decided to go for 15mm to be safe.
