I am so happy I stuck with 500HP. No one needs more. Everyday, I get in turn the key and blow the doors off everything. Day after day....

Bummer...didn't see that coming. I was enjoying the progress updates. Real shame to pull her apart after all that work.

Dave you and me both... I think when the time comes (turbos die or engine dies) I'll just do a "security build", pretty much what you've got... no sense in a 700hp street car.

Hey guys... the 2j swap is\was done. Had her running great and at about 18psi. She's a fucking monster. But last Saturday I had her out with a friend getting ready to get some video...I was getting on her and broke the crank pulley in two...no biggie,had it flatbedded home. I ordered a new ati pulley, but while sitting for a week, I started thinking about how much time and money I put into this vehicle...vs how much time I get to actually enjoy her. As tim said, the longest stretch was 1.5yrs as a na. Other than that,my z has been on jackstands most its life. At this point I had to ask myself if its ever gonna be done? My answer.....no. so I've decided to part ways with it. While ill actually get a big majority of my money back, my time is lost. Although its not a bad thing as I've learned waaay more in the last 6 yrs in this community than I ever would've elsewhere. I've made a few good friends..so I'm happy still. I'm not going to be out of the community as I have a ton of friends who now own them. Maybe ill hop into a completely stock tt and just drive it around. Buy a bike for my speed fix..we'll see in a few months

Kandy, I can buy into that realization that it's always there waiting for more (or more desired by owner) and it's not just the time you spend wrenching on it, where the satisfaction comes to play--it's the constant thinking and searching process that really wears on you. It's like having a job that you take home with you. Good luck with the "next one" and apply all you've learned to mechanics and life.
