By July 2005, the swap was complete and that inner monster was finally out. "It is hard to describe on paper the feeling this Z monster produces," Rob says. At 19 psi, the Z lays down 440 whp and 380 lb-ft of torque at the wheels. The power is delivered using a T3/T4 turbo, Nismo 740cc injectors, GReddy intake manifold, custom Z Car Garage front-mount intercooler, C&R radiator, JWT (Jim Wolf Technology) aluminum flywheel and heavy-duty clutch. A Ford Lightning MAF is mated with JWT computer controls. A Z32 TT fuel pump with an in-tank basket supplies fuel and DEFI gauges bring vital information to the driver. Full Ground Control suspension with 5-way adjustable Tokicos endows the car with mechanical grip. Custom 993 Porsche brakes on all four corners quickly bring the Z to a stop when close to 9 inches of rubber makes contact with the ground. The 16x7 Panasport wheels are wrapped in 225/50/16 Kumho Victor Racer V700 tires. It's a tight package to say the least.

After a decade of teasing, the monster finally peaked out the tailpipe ready to partake in some action. With the enthusiasm of Rob and the crew at Z Car Garage, this monster is likely to have a good ol' time.
