    After 24 hours

    After 24 hours and about 100 miles, I gotta say, this is great. The car has lost no drivability around town, from stop light to stop light. I even took it over to a friend's place with a stone driveway, and I had no problem putting around on the driveway or pulling out.

    When you're out on the highway, WOW. There is so much power, and it is so smooth, and that big torque curve is amazing between 3-6000. I will say that the first to second shift if on you in a friggen blink now. Not that this is a bad thing.

    The exhaust sounds fantastic, and there's no drone, and if you don't want the noise, it is easily overcome by the radio with the windows up. Not only that, but the car looks better with those big shiny magnaflow tips over the dull rectangular stock nonsense.

    I have a 300ZX TT also, that two days ago I wouldn't really have a preference which I'd drive, that or the camaro. Now... I will probably sell the 300, because now it will just feel slow, and the torque difference will be really noticable, especailly < 3000 before the turbos fully spool.

    Congrats on the nice results! You put together a well planned setup and it appears that the mods do a great job complimenting one another. I think you will see a nice climb in the peak numbers with a LS6 or FAST intake. If you're planning to do a head swap in the future, might as well start saving for the FAST as well.

    Well, if I'm going to do the heads and intake, then I also need to do injectors and a clutch, and if I intend to launch hard, the rear is going to be an issue too.

    As is, I'll need a clutch before much else. When I'm hard on it in first, it slips once I'm into the 4000 rpm range, and I haven't even tried a decent launch yet. I have not so great tires on there now too, and it won't pass inspection with them on there, so I'll need tires. I'm thinking of getting wheels too.

    Its not really a save up thing. Its a where do I want to spend my money. I've also got a 300zx twin turbo that needs some TLC...
