Default New Year new setup. MKIV Supra and 3000GT VR4

Been a while since I posted here...been busy with a new setup on my car. I'm pretty sure no one remembers but I had a twin16g 3000GT VR-4. This past year I did a single turbo setup on it and here is the precursor for whats to come in 2019. Missed all of 2018 working on this ***** but planning to make up for it this year. Enjoy fellas..

Can't speak for others, but I certainly remember. Love your car, how big is the single? How much power is it making?

Sweet! Last I left off street tuning, we stopped at 25psi and somewhere in the mid 600's. When spring rolls around, we'll ramp it to 30 and hoping to settle somewhere in the 700's.

Call me a glutton for punishment, I picked up a 300ZX TT recently as well and I heard horror stories from the internet that its the worst car ever to work on...after wrenching on it and getting first hand experience, like all **** everywhere, its hyped to a certain extent. Do the proper deletes and mods, and so long as you don't go overboard its not bad at all...same goes for the 3000gt!

Sadly the F&F franchise has moved away from what made the original so good(and cheesy) somebody's gotta keep the torch going

wtf is my picture..it hasn't been posted yet

edit: there it is. 4" smoke stack has been replaced with a downpipe that mates to my exhaust

Awesome cars


If you ever have a 300ZX motor out do the timing belt and all the seals. Timing belt is like LT1 Fbody headers...

3000GT is sweetness. 300ZX is very cool import also, almost as cool as S14. Really like the single route
