  • #ProjectMonztter Progress

    Hi Guys,

    A few of you on here, who know me personally, know I typically do major changes to my Z over the winter seasons. I decided to start a thread to document some of the more major things that I have done and am doing to my Z.

    I purchased my 1990 Z32 NA in stock condition with 34,5XX KM in July 2011. I didn't do anything to it that year other than basic maintenance.
    During 2012, I started to look at parts that I would potentially want and researched which direction I wanted to go with my Z. I got a Z1 ECU flash, HKS exhaust and Z1 Intake.
    In 2013 I did major maintenance, EFI harness replacement, 120k service, spark plugs and injectors amongst other things, you can read more about it here --> http://www.ontariozcar.com/ozc/forum...32-help-needed

    This is how the Z looked like when I first got her and after I did the exhaust (see pic). Not many pics of the progress up until here, pretty boring stuff.

    Durning the 2013/2014 winter I got some carbon fiber goodies for the exterior, installed coilovers and a bunch of suspension parts, I got a set of Varrstoen ES2 wheels and then I bought a TwinZ rear bumper, Kaminari side skirts, Stillen front lip and vinyl wrapped my Z with 3M's Matte Blue Metallic vinyl.

      During the 2014/2015 winter I did a JDM TT conversion with the help of Vuk at AMS Motorsports. We got a JDM engine, made sure it was healthy, did every bolt on imaginable, upgraded injectors and turbos, installed Nistune... in the end on a super basic tune the car dyno'd in at 520+ rwhp. I will be re-tuning it in the spring of 2016 and hope to get better results.

        During the current 2015/2016 winter season, I have a major over haul coming and will be updating this thread as I go. For now, I have completed removing the vinyl wrap. Stay tuned for more...

            New tires have arrived! these are the new rears compared to the stock rears. I should be able to get some more traction with these bad boys.

              Amazing evolution Matt... what are the new tires? Pirelli?
              How does the black paint look after peeling off the vinyl?

                Thanks Jason. Yes the new tires are Pirelli P Zero Rosso. Staying with 245/40/18 upfront but the rears are now 335/30/18.

                The paint looks just the same as it did before the vinyl. I have to say I miss the black look. The car just looks so much more sinister lol.

                    Interesting. Is molding that wing in common, or something you are trying?

                      I'm not sure if it's common, i just wanted to do it. It seems like there is enough of the wing over lapping the trunk hatch where molding it should be fairly painless. I like the seamless look and this wing just looked odd to me when i just laid it on top of my hatch. I will be getting some other stuff molded too. I will post more pics up as there is more progress.

                        Molding process has started on the Stillen lip. Also a quick shot of the shaved rear wiper.
