View Full Version : July 2006 Car of the Month- KingofScion

Q & A

ChicagoZ.com :What got you hooked to the 350Z that you ended up purchasing it?
King of Scion : I was a Muscle car guy for a while, but to save money, I sold my 2000 TA. I drive company cars for a while, Solara, 4runner, new Avalon and Highlander. Then I ordered a Z roadster in Spring of 04, and actually took delivery July 9th.

ChicagoZ.com :What action does your 350Z mostly see? drag, autox, road race, show car, weekend car, and/or daily driver...
King of Scion : I work in the car business and I drive a New TOYOTA 4Runner Limited in the winter, but during spring summer and fall, it's Z only. It has 19800 miles, I have only had the turbo kit sine early summer. I have been 3000 miles on her since I got the turbo.

ChicagoZ.com :Any performance specs? 1/4 mile@mph, whp/wtorq, track times...
King of Scion : I was told 439 hp and 450 torque, but I never verfity the torque rating on the dyno printout. With that said, I highly recommend GRD, they took care of me, and have always been willing to follow.

ChicagoZ.com :What other modifications are you planning on doing to the 350Z, if any? Whether it's performance, handling, appearance, and/or sound system....
King of Scion : I have always felt the substance is more important than style, but I need 18 X 10s in the back, with some drag radials to get any traction. With the stock tires, I can chirp 4th gear. Once that is done, Handling mods and coming..
I also have a Pioneer AVIC z1 sitting on the shelve waiting to be picked up... at my parts dept. I just want to get the wheels and drags still.
With that said, right now my car is the ultimate sleeper. It so funny seeing the facial expressions of STi, Cobra, EVO, and Vette driver when I am passing then in 3rd gear.

No $hit Sleeper! I didn't even know it was TT till I saw someone posted "sleeper" on their comment and I double checked the engine bay and the mod list! Nice job; fooled my a$$!

Let me reiterate what everyone else has said: So sweeeet as a sleeper. I thought the car of the month was a stock roadster.

Sweet car..When you get those drags you are definitely going to be launching at every light. I have mine on right now and thats exactly what i do!! Feels so good to stick in 1st and 2nd..

what type of wheels are you planning on going with? And which drags do you plan on getting on them?

Awesome job thus far tho!
