Jesus Christ you have a small fortune in parts, I'm sure Kyle will be here shortly lol. But good luck with a build. Buy the car now hell they go for pennies on the dollar. I could sell you a polished turd for what a stock one goes for now days.

lol i know right its in the 10k regions i have people saying no way in hell its going to happen but......tax time is my clutch doing these paper routes you get back a small fortune =) they pay you for your gas all the mileage and any and all maintenance you have to do to your car brakes - lights - oil changes tires you name it they pay it back and the payout is 4 - 5k per route and i have 2 plus just had a baby plus taxes coming in from 2 other jobs so needless to say thats how im going to get the car and buy up some of the parts to stat wont be all at once

Nice parts list and I'd say thats a good 10k or more easy. Forget the Ksport coilovers and go with Powertrix. Are you wanting to buy a stock TT or whats the plan? Also your gonna want to do a full 120k timing service.

Yeah its not exactly a cheap list lol i may edit it in some ways. where do you get powertrix? yeah im going to buy a stock tt and build it first things i had in mind was the hks exhaust bovs and timer and controller then the fmic and intake kit......problem is i cannot find a greddy fmic anymore i had found a brand new one on ebat for $900 with piping and intake but its not on there so any sugestions on a new fmic? i hate to ask but theres a fmic with piping and intake kit on there for $550 wonder who makes it or if its any good

You should really join 300ZXCLUB.com you just go to powertrix.com I ordered some race coilovers with 16 way dampening from them and I have fuca's, ruca's and tension rods from them sitting in my room waiting to go in my car. Also idk if you know or not, but bov's do not work well on the Z32's as they cause boost problems. As far as the fmic I would really stick with the side pod intercoolers, they work just as good for the amount of power your looking at with those parts.
