my newsed ZHP better than stock? probably

I bought this with a blown motor

taking her home

then I bought this a month later

then I got this

and then I dropped the car off at RRT in Dulles Virginia and waited patiently.

While waiting I took part in a group buy and got a sweet deal on these

RRT got me the Michelin Pilot Super Sports at TireRack pricing with free shipping woo hoo

I waited some more while Epic Tuning programmed my DME with their tune and more work to stay legit, RPM Motorsports took care of the gauge cluster. I bought a used M3 rear end and the boys welded in the TMS plates and fit it all up. Decided on Borla Midpipes, and they fabricated a magnaflow muffler


Then I got the call SHE was almost done


picked her up today and she's running strong.





It still needs a little work ya know

edit work completed see the windshield wiper fluid reservoir. The mount looks oem with brackets holding. Very robust solution. RRT Fabrication w1n



edit dyno'd today 8/2/2012, not bad for 90+ degree temps

I love how you were just like

"So one day I grabbed a ZHP in my spare time, bout' a month later I picked up an ol' S54, sorta just tossed it in there. Took a while to get back to me so in the meantime I couldn't help but purchase ridiculously sick wheels and tires. And um, yeah to top it all off on my way home from the grocery store I had an f'n sweet exhaust fabricated on. Ya she runs pretty good."

Gawd Damn...

yeah, you got it right but it's just a little to big so it's not really in there well. Will probably try to find a slightly smaller one from a e36 perhaps?

The car isn't done yet, in fact I doubt it will ever really be done if you know what I'm saying

great job.

from the looks of the wheels when it was on the flat bed, the previous owner would have a blown motor...
