    it was a 24 hr drive each way so we split it up, 2 days down, and then it ended up being about 3 days back, we spun a bearing on our tow vehicle half way back to ny.

    i'm very happy, my main complaint is the seats though, the bottoms of the seats are just flat and have no support. any recommendations for new ones?

    Old school turbo kit, or OEM turbo? That charge pipe/BOV is odd looking.

    Wierd, Charge pipe with BOV built into the end of it? and non intercooled. Cant say I have ever seen this turbo kit before. Whats the details on this?

    Cool

    it's an old school aftermarket setup from BAE, the BOV looking thing built into the end of it is actually the boost controller, or so i'm told. there is no wastegate on the system.

    it is very odd, but i guess that's how it was done in the late 70's.

    beautiful. i love these, im pretty small so i fit on them pretty well too lol as for seats.. id look for something maybe OEM of another small car.. maybe recaros or somethin. my friend got a set of sparco seats for his s2000 and had to trim and wedge them.. and the Z is wayyyy smaller than that. just my .02 enjoy that thing!
