With an impeccable setup and meaty slicks, this sleeper inspired Z32 Nissan 300ZX does not fail to disappoint. It may not look like much but this particular 300ZX wheelies at the start like an untamed beast escaping a predator.
From what can be seen in this video from YouTube channel 1320, the tuner of this wild 300ZX is quite humble and nonchalant about the motor. Claiming it to be a four-year build, the tuner mentioned it has a stock bottom end, valve covers to oil pan.
What is clear is that without those proportionally challenged rear tires, this 300ZX would have no traction to the ground as its output is estimated to be a gargantuan 700 horses. A hefty HX52 turbocharger is mounted on the 300ZX’s 3.0-liter 24-valve V6 motor.
Keeping his explanation simple, this tuner lets the car’s quarter-mile timeslips speak for themselves. Not too shabby for a 10-second car that looks to be outdated, and perhaps outclassed, with its matte finish paint.
The 300ZX makes short work against a twin-turbo Mark IV Toyota Supra, refusing to show its age. When people hear the word stock, they may assume the car is barebones with no modifications or aftermarket parts…They’d be wrong.
As a matter of fact, the 300ZX is fitted with a built to the hilt General Motors TH400 automatic transmission. An automatic with this much pull on the tarmac is just ridiculous. The stock block is surrounded by competent bolt-on goodies.
The 300ZX doesn’t have the aerodynamics to consider it a dragster, but something needs to keep this beast down. In reference to Dominic Toretto, this 300ZX lives its life a quarter mile at a time.
Overall, this 300ZX is quite the build. Although we may not know much about the tuner, it is definitely clear that he knows what he’s doing.
Surprisingly, the tuner mentions he has even bigger plans once this engine blows. Keep an eye out for tuners like this. He is clearly no ordinary wrench monkey.
With quarter-mile times of this caliber, this tuner has every right to dream big.
We are in agreement that something isn’t right here, but we like what we see. Feel free to share your thoughts below.
