I wonder if he will convince Nismo to paint his Nismo R35 GTR in Midnight Opal

Good info - keep it coming.


How many Z Tunes are in Aus at present? just the Z-001 prototype?


Nismo shouldn't paint the V Spec Nismo R35 Midnight opal IMO - de-values the real MO R35's!

Will do

Currently only 1 as Z-Tune #15 is still at Omori Factory. The Prototype (build number P001) sits at Nismo Omori Factory and the one in Sydney is build #1 with matching Z2 engine serial #1

A lot of the Z-Tunes are not matched with the same engine number. For example Z-Tune build #2 from Global Auto in Japan has engine serial number #4

Z-Tune #14 used to reside in Melbourne but moved to Greece a few years back. I actually have a few pics of that car when it was here on my home PC

Steering wheel would suit a Primera better let alone a Z-Tune!

I know right! It's actually from the Nissan 350Z. The 350Z's in Japan got a Momo option that are the same, just without the red alcantara.

They should have stuck with the standard style or used the Nismo 355 made by Italvolanti. It was used on the Z-Tune & R-Tune prototypes, as well as various other Demo cars.

Some pics a friend of mine took of build #1 in Sydney. Notice the carbon on the strut towers is actually carbon over laying the stock struts. I always thought the strut towers were replaced with carbon ones??

No, not replaced. To quote from Number 90 - High Performance Imports magazine during their cover of Z-Tune build #016 :-

The exotic composite material is further used in the bodywork, and more specifically the front bumper, front fenders and vented hood. Even the adjustable flap on the rear spoiler is made from carbon-fibre.
HTH!

HTH!
You learn something new every day!

Z-Tune build #15 is officially alive! I was sent a video yesterday and it looks amazing. I'll ask the owner if I can share it with you guys! All the aluminium piping (intercooler and intake) has been changed to carbon and it is also fitted with the Nismo prototype air guides Vcam is now gone and the engine has been rebuilt to OEM spec

The owner is very humble .

Got the magazine yesterday here, and nice to see the build.

Cool that he got presented with a purple. Z tune model .

Question Has anyone ever seen the dyno results of a genuine Z-Tune live?

Everytime I read a magazine article or see peoples quotes from the official jp website,

https://www.nismo.co.jp/Z-tune/data_e/6.html

Those Torque figures just look really too low for Nissan's 2.8L to me for some reason??

Engine Type - Water-cooling in-line 6 cylinder

Bore & Stroke - 87mm x 77.1mm

Compression Ratio - 8.5 : 1

Displacement - 2,771 cc

Max Power - over 368 kw (500ps)

Max Torque - over 540N.m (55kg.m)


Weight - 1,600 kg

Maybe its just me but (as the Forum has proved over and over again...) when any RB26 DETT with a set of N1 Turbos and Tomei Poncams can also make over 380kW with at least 580Nm of Torque, It makes me wonder what exactly the true dyno numbers are for the Nismo Z-Tune II?!

JM2PW!

Nice! First time since its restoration right... I am surprised they didn't use the carbon airbox - I realise it wasn't standard but neither were the CF intercooler pipes!

Correct! Should have specified that haha. A carbon Airbox was added later on! The car is now in Sydney getting complied and registered. I should be at GTR Festival in August alongside Z-Tune Build #1

Im sure they will put the Z-Tune on the dyno when it arrives at Vspec Performance. The owner put his R35 GTR Nismo on, it made 340awkw in stock trim. Aussie Dyno's also tend to read a bit lower than Europe and America. We normally dont see more than 340wkw with N1 Turbos

I knew what you meant once I saw the video but because there was no preview I thought it may have been an old school video from when they first finished it all those years ago!
Surprised it is Sydney, thought it would go straight to Melbourne! If that is not motivation enough to get over than I don't know what is.... so glad to see these in Australia!
