Well.. I know it isn't a supra but it's still one of the cars in my shop right now.

Here it is, the 300zx i've been working on for the past 2 years. T70 turbo, 38mm external wastegate, and the latest addition is a twin intake system to support the twin mafs i'm running. These are only progress pics... This car has about 500 hours in it so far... it was my first project and we put 270 hp down last year (guestimate taking into account injector size, boost pressure etc...) and now we are going for 450hp

the customer who owns this z31 is a drag-racing kinda guy... and he's cheap, lol. Anyhow, at the moment the biggest necessities are clutch and fuel pump as the stocker can only flow a little over 300hp, i'd like to convince him to do more, but he seems to respond to new expenses better when they are presented to him one at a time over a long period. btw.. i finished all the welding today, but i want to put on the bondo and sand/prime it first before i post more pics.

thanks man.. and i forgot to mention that the other 300 sounded awesome.. this one i am gonna try and re-map the ecu myself.. terrifying, but hopefully all goes well... practice for my supra lol.
Here is some pics of the underside of the hood before bondo -- there are 32 pieces that i had to weld in --ouch! So far the hood has taken about 35 hours... I am by no means a body man. hehehe.
