I'm back, new to me tt

I've been gone since 2010 when I sold my 94 na. Well today I picked up a 94 na-tt auto. Wasn't crazy about an auto but went to see it because of the swap. 145k on the chassis, swap was done around 127k. I've got the paperwork, timing belt, water pump, the works was done at that time. Everything is stock down to the factory airbox & exhaust. The shop that did it did a pretty clean job & the car is in decent shape. It needs paint but the body is in good shape & the interior is actually pretty nice. Going to start cleaning her up tomorrow & figuring what needs to be done. I drove it back 300 miles & it ran well. Not planning to go crazy but just intake, exhaust, ecu. Get some pictures tomorrow.

Here is what it looked like the other day. I spent some time cleaning it up as best I could. Quite pleased with the interior, the outside is just what it is. Degreased under the hood today & got the right sized clamps & tightened everything up. It's much better but I didn't get any pictures. Up next is doing the same up under & tightening everything up. I have no boost gauge so need one of those. Oil is clean but going to change it & make sure I have mobil 1 in there. They've were running the na bumper so no vents for the intercoolers so I'm going to add some at least until I decide what route I want to go. I ordered a knock off pop charger so it should be here this week. Other than that just a full tank of 93 & some seafoam for good measure.

Cleaned up the engine & putting some vents for my intercoolers in the na bumper. Fresh mobil 1 10w30 & mobil 75w90 in the differential. My main radiator hose has a pin hole so some blue silicone radiator hoses are on the way. As is a z1 single gauge pod & a auto craft boost gauge. I have no gauge at the moment. Boot leg pop charger should be here this afternoon.

My boost gauge came in & I should get it installed Wednesday. Broke down & order a bootleg ebay exhaust. It's only 2.25 inside but it has a straight through h pipe & mufflers so it has to flow better than stock. Cheap mainly lol. I had one on my na a few years ago & for the price I don't think you could beat it. Picked up some new rotors from the parts store & have some stoptech pads on the way. I've got a sony deck with blown bose speakers so I ordered the speaker brackets so I can run aftermarket 6.5's. Chipping away slowly. Need to mod my oil pressure sensors as it acts a little funky. I won't be going cheap on the ecu. I'll be going to ash in the near future just trying to get everything solid before I go pushing things much harder. Also got my vents cut, now just to get the mesh to finish them off.

Got my gauge in & guess who's in saftey boost? Ran codes & got a coolant temp sensor code. Picked up a new one & should get it in today. Car feels quick at 6psi so 9 should be even better.

Looks like you are having fun and is excited about the new Z. I wish I was still so fired up about owning the Z. I guess I need to go drive it more.

Congrats
