Did something this weekend……..something I wanted to do since having that 300ZX TT poster on my wall as a kid……since being stationed in Japan and actually driving one of those 300ZX TTs (and owning an S13 Silvia with a stout SR20DET)……since loving the design of the Z going back to its origins as the Fairlady Z in 69’…..since forever. This Nissan Z NISMO incorporates subtle design cues from the great Z’s of the past and is truly a work of art in my eyes. My background and mechanical knowledge is classic Ford muscle of the 60's & early 70s, so actually wrenching on this thing is going to be all new, but I'm looking forward to the journey. I was able, after much respectful back and forth, to get my NISMO for MSRP and avoid the $10k markup they had on it. Is the car too expensive? Absolutely, but everything is these days and this is what I wanted, so I'm beyond happy.

I'm looking forward to meeting many of you, learning and sharing this journey.

Thank you all so much!
Figured I'd give insight into my plan to start with more simple bolt on stuff as I learn the car and get more comfortable working on it. The following is what I've just ordered from Z1 (through my local JDM shop Kraken Motorsports in Fort Worth) I'd be very interested to hear your thoughts:

1. NISMO 2023+ Nissan Z Carbon Fiber Engine Cover
2. NISMO 2023+ Nissan Z Cat-Back Race/Track Exhaust
3. Z1 2023+ Nissan Z Carbon Fiber Radiator Air Guide
4. NISMO 2023+ Nissan Z Cold Air Intake
5. Z1 2023+ Nissan Z Aluminum Undershroud (Anodized Black)
6. NISMO Forged Open End Lug Nut Set - M12x1.25
7. NISMO Valve Stem Cap Set (Red)
8. Nismo Oil Filler Cap (Ratcheting Style)

6-9mo Wish List

1. AMS 2023+ Nissan Z Heat Exchanger
2. AMS Performance 2023+ Nissan Z VR30 Intercoolers
3. AMS PERFORMANCE VR30DDTT STREET FULL DOWNPIPES

My goal on the street is to be able to quit some of these damn Mustangs that keep revving at me lol; I mean I've got paper plates on guys, give me some time here. My other goal is to do some circuit/road course racing.

Love them all. I don’t want any performance mods myself but I wouldn’t mind some of the aesthetic parts like the engine cover. Thx for posting these. I’ll eventually order some.

Totally worth getting an exhaust.
It really does liven and make the experience more complete.

Huge selection on the market for different tastes

I don’t wanna get bit by the mod bug! 😂
Hahah.. I can understand that!

Still, if I were to only get a single mod for the car, it would always be Cat Back Exhaust
Every time!

I had the Z performance
And just bought and soon getting delivered my Nismo
Both getting one slapped on :)

Oh congrats on the Nismo! What color did you go with and is it stealth grey? 😂

Tyvm

Black!
SG was my preference
But, black was the only one available for my situation
(Close to home, MSRP)

Being in Canada, much fewer numbers then the USD Nismo availability.

Imo, every color on the Nismo edition looks amazing

1. got the cover and love it. you will need to freshen up the exposed intercooler cores a bit as they have stickers and yellow paint marks on them. I polished mine by hand
4. had them ordered but currently on indefinite back order while the intakes are emissions tested.
6. if you are keeping the stock wheels those wont work as the lug seating isnt correct
8. oil filler cap is very cool I have it also
