In my opinion (not having heard any Z exhaust sound in real life, waiting on my car to be picked up in two weeks. But watching every review our there, especially ones with mods done on the exhaust)
The downpipes are the bottleneck (I'd argue full, both the upper and lower)
Without changing the...
I'm with you man - Americans get the sound just righttttt
Got the full MAP DPs & Exhaust waiting for install!
Personally not a fan of the single exit look - but love that gnarly sound.
For everything else i'd love to go JDM; have been eyeing the parts coming out.
If your interested in the JDM market, Blitz and HKS released their respective coilovers.
Both are well known for their coilovers and reputation.
The basic Blitz ZZ-R's are 231,000yen
Lead times are probably going to be long so keep that in mind.
Kinda feels like AMS is over charging for some of there parts given their credibility and all... But they do make some of the best stuff.
Z1 looks clean with the carbon and they're engine covers matching.
Just have a soft spot for the JDM parts / market 🇯🇵⛩️
I know right, very similar situation for me!!
I'm so tempted to pick up these CAIs....
Only thing holding me back is waiting for the price and lead time for some Japanese brand CAIs (looking at blitz and HKS mainly)
Sound was a big thing for me with all the reviews. It's why I purchased MAP...
Honestly, it's why I'm happy with how my situation turned out.
Basically, buying the car outside my home province here in Canada which I'll then drive back home in early April which will be like 1500kms!
Breaking her in with just a few days of driving.
Get her back, oil change, get my full DPs...
Typically want to maintain RPMs between 2k - 4k (most important when on the highway/interstate to not just cruise the RPMs), for the first 1000-1500 mi.
To each their own on the milegae for break-in.
I personally will be going for 1500kms (up here in Canada)
Thereafter, next 100-200mi should...
Even mentioning some ones mother - like wtf - you 12?
Me pissing away 30k - for sure bro, my money, who the fuck are you to say anything about how i spend my worth??
I clearly wrote i was willing to pay up to some sums like that, but i aint stupid, of course i'm going to try to get it at...
dude... i don't even know where you come up with this stuff..
mom jokes - referring to the person who said "your mom must be so proud"....
I don't know any of the folks on here like you do, so much in detail i guess... WA? she being a mom i guess? okay...
All coming in troves eh...
Wanted to post the images with my own Z post and explain my story in full...
But since the mom jokes are coming out.... y'all can see what i actually paid.... (spoiler: just 3k CAD over MSRP...)
Below are the details..
you'll see the sale description, what i actually...
Let us know how it looks and handles in the end.
I'm so tempted to get the Z1 carbon parts for a fancy engine bay!
But I'm loving the look/reputation of both Blitz & HKS
Wanted an all JDM car/parts.
But already bought MAP downpipes and catback exhaust hahahah
