I want my next Z built around GREAT suspension parts. Good true type covers, SPL parts, and so on. I will be doing many HPDE events. So a good LSD is a must. Hoping it comes with a good one from factory. Doubt it. Along with better brakes than the akebonos. They are good but could be better along with the ABS system that seem to have issues with brakes bias or ice mode on the 370. More of a track issue. I didn’t seem to have that problem on my 370 with Akebonos and AP setup running carbotech pads XP10 front and XP8 rear. But there was a lot who did based on the forums. I just don’t want to spend 5-7K on a BBK this time around.
For power full down pipes, exhaust, and good tune is really all I need. Probably intakes for some performance and aesthetic’s of the engine bay. These cars make great power already and no reason to go all in. Even though these upgrades seem to pretty much max out next to going up to a flex fuel system.
After that just addressing all cooling issues and maintenance issues. Heat exchanger, oil cooler, and catch can. Still a good build overall. But this is my goal in a nutshell. Lol. Sadly this will be big scale down from my past cars. So much wasted money over the years on nonsense.
Also I’d like to see a upgraded intercooler air to air to do away with the coolant type one they have now. Leaving the intercoolers in the same spot but using obviously better material for cooling properties and deleting those coolant lines. But it’s obvious we would need a some form of functional hood/ hood scoop to make it work. But IMO I think this would be awesome. Look at me. Sound like a 13 year old and I’m 41. I just love these cars. Ok I’ll stop. Went off on a rant. So much to look forward to.
