The JDM Zenon Headlights alone were around $1800..

For the gauge faces, trust me, from experience you do NOT want to install them yourself! Send your gauge cluster off to NRAuto.com and they will instlall for $100. I mangled my gauges, extremely difficult to get the needles off without removing the pin they are attached to. And if you remove the needles with it that gauge is gone.... Luckily got a replacement cluster for $80 (a steal for a TT!) and just swapped out the odometer.

Bet that 30GB will be awesome! Keep us posted!

If he loves that Z then he should go for it. I love mine. I doubt I would trade it for any other (within reason). I've bought a lot of "minor detail" parts that others would probably not buy because of the price. That's me though. I'm working towards perfecting the quality of my Z inside and out.

I notice minor details and I do sweat the small stuff. I understand his purchases.

Not twin turbo yet, 3rd quarter this year.

Additionally I did not disclose the "rest of the story" . Some old man hit me and I negotiated ( well not me my licensed negotiator, everyone should have one :) ) a very favorable settlement and $5400.00 was courtesy of Prudential Insurance.

Yes I am in the phoenix Area, so I get to go over to Coz's Place, great guy and the guys over at Pit Stop are very knowledgeable mechanics and seem fair priced.

When it is all said and done by then on 2006 I will have a Z with almost all new parts inside and out with about 450 HP and no car payments for about 20k. Good? Maybe Bad? Maybe but I did it my own schedule, made no payments, paid no interest, and will have one sweet ride.

Now I'm looking for an alternative fuel cavalier for my commuter car. Arizonians will understand...

I agree freeflow we need more people to come with us to the meets. in fact i recently meet a 90TT going to the races. I think he told me he had T5 turbos in and he should be around 500hp at about 14psi (he hasn't gotten the new injectors yet).

Let me know where and when and I will try to stop by. That is once I get out of my rental car.
