    Decided to update the thread, and put videos at the top for anyone who may be interested.

    Cut a nearly perfect light on this pass, and had a good hard launch. Car went pretty good

    Default Engine Bay (Stock) Photo

    This is a picture of the engine bay when I originally purchased the car. The engine bay (what you see) is completely stock at this time.

    Default Brake Upgrade

    Having the car at the Track made me realize a couple of things. First was that the car doesn't stop for sh!t on stock brakes/rotors! So those had to go.

    Also, noticed that the turbos got real warm real fast, or at least the air did, so I began to see value for Intercooler upgrades. So, first things first. Make the car stop a little better.

    Here's a picture of the brake upgrade.

    Went with AP Racing 4 Piston Calipers, slotted and drilled rotors. Stainless lines at the same time.

    This picture shows the new rotor on the car, with the highlighted area being the size of the original rotor.

    Default Intercooler Upgrade

    All pictures now are digital, the first few were scanned. In any case, this is a picture showing the size difference between stock and the Stillen Intercoolers.

    Default Track Shot

    So, back at the Track with all the mods described in previous posts. This is at the Road Track at Race City in Calgary.

    Also installed at this stage were:

    Blitz SBC-iD Boost Controller
    Silicon Boost Hoses (Red)
    Oil Cooler Kit
    Aluminum Lower Radiator Pipe

    The car (in this trim) runs its fastest 1/4 mile at 12.949. This is in Calgary (approx. 5000ft above sea level). Done on 18" Rears with street tires. Suspect I could go slightly faster with the stock wheels on, but whatever...

    The big upgrades are next!

    So, here's a picture of the downpipes choosen, as well as the new pistons. The pistons are Forged by CP Racing. The downpipes are Greg Dupree Split Downpipes.

    (No picture) But also Stillen Mid-Pipes replacing the stock components.

    The Turbo choice was a tough one - I wanted reasonable power and moderate lag as opposed to huge power and big lag. So I went with the HKS 2530 BB Turbo.

    (Ofcourse, it is a Twin Turbo, so there are TWO of these bad boys)

    Finally have put some KM's on the car and took it back to the dyno. Cranked up the boost and here are the results:



    Here's a quick little video of the Z at the dyno:

    Enjoy!

    Timeslips will be posted once I get a chance to run with this fuel and boost setting.

    The Z won the Drag competition at the v8less Sport Compact Challenge at Race City (Calgary, AB) on August 20th, 2005.

    Here are the elimination time slips:



    All these runs did not use nitrous. Quickest run was an 11.797 @ 126.79 mph.

    Set a new personal best for the Z.

    This is still on a radial drag tire and nitrous was not used.
