Rude Boy!

Mike from British Columbia has the appropriate name for his Z, “Rude Boy”.  Mike sent down his Z32 for some tender lovin’ care.  He knew his Z wasn’t running as well as it could have and wanted to give it the best shot it has.

Beautifully modified on the outside.

It came to us with the following power mods:

  • Built Engine
  • JWT 400 Cams
  • Border 850cc Fuel Injector\Rail Kit
  • Long Tube Exhaust Manifolds
  • HKS GT-RS Turbos (similar to 2871s)\Externally Gated w\ Tials
  • Custom 2.5″ Down Pipes & Test Pipes
  • SZ 2.5″ Single Oval Catback
  • Custom FMIC with some 2″ and 2.5″ Piping
  • Stock Throttle Bodies
  • Autronic SM2 Standalone ECU
  • Dual Fuel Pumps
  • Blitz sbc -iD Spec-R Boost Controller

We added and modified:

  • JWT 500 Cams
  • Tomei Adjustable Exhaust Cam Gears
  • Late Style BDE Adjustable Intake Cam Gears
  • Z1 Throttle Bodies
  • Replace existing custom 2″ Intercooler Piping with 2.5″
  • SZ Custom 3″ Down Pipes & Test Pipes
  • SZ 3″ Single Oval Catback
  • Haltech Pro-Plugin ECU
  • Tune it!

We added a set of custom 3″ downpipes to fit the altered location of the HKS turbos and external wastegates.

Out with the old……. this ECU is actually pretty powerful but 8 years later there are new and improved ECUs available.  We yanked out the old harness and installed a brand new harness in its place.

Haltech’d!  We went with a Haltech in place of the Autronic.  Packed with great features and adjustments.  We installed a 4-bar MAP sensor, Intake Air Temp, Dual Widebands, I\O Box, Clutch Switch for flat shifting, and Anti-Lag Launch.  Contact us if your looking to get a Haltech for your Z.

Cleaned up.  We moved alot of wiring around from how it came to us.  Rerouted the catch can setup.  New cam gears are visible.

Ready to get the job done.

The blue run is the baseline we did as soon as it showed up to our doors.  We kept the MAX boost level pressures the same.  We gained 108 lb\ft of torque and 82 whp at 4000 RPM.  Much better drivability and response!  We also made alot more top end power.  This is Rude Boy’s 94 Canadian Octane Tune.

For the final tune Rude Boy will run Q16 fuel down the drag strip for 851 whp & 650 lb\ft of torque.  Maxing out its 850cc injectors with ease.

    Love the wheels!

    Seb, do you think you get the specs on the wheels?

  4. Wheels are probably:
    18×9 + 30/35
    18×10 + 35/40

  5. I know for a fact they are 11s out back.

    Hi Seb, what does round-trip shipping from BC run?

  7. Not sure to be honest with you. I know East coast to West coast is around $2k. So I would guess half that?
