Default Fast Intentions Twin Turbo kit

Ok, laides and Gentlemen, have been in contact with Tony over at Fast Intentions in regards to that magnificent work of art they built for the Z34 platform, and after doing a fair amount of research myself I got in contact with Tony, voiced the concerns I saw as far as differences between the Z33 and Z34 platforms and the interchangeability of the kit between both platforms.

This being said, how many of you would be interested in this kit. If there is enough interest I have already told Tony that i would be willing to Donate my car for testing and fitting of the kit to see what modifications need to be made to make a production kit for our 2007/2008 VQ35HR cars.

i have not gone into detail on prices for this kit with him yet, but would say it would be safe to say it would be the same cost as their 370Z kit. Tuner kit they offer for the 370 starts at 8.729.00 or they offer a full Turn Key kit for 9,999.00

thats in the ball park of the Greddy and GTM kits, and IMO the Fast Intentions kit is leaps and bounds ahead of both it quality. and they performance of the kit so far seems to be amazing. they are seeing great numbers and amazing spool times.

for those of you who have not seen this kit yet this is a link to the flyer page on their site for the Z34.

8-9k is out of the realm for 350z. Most of the new guys here are buying their Z's for that much. They would rather plasti dip, throw some varstoens on, slam on cheap coilovers and a busted knock off exhaust.

The days of $$ and the 350z are long gone and only a few of us are still modding appropriately.

looks like a nice kit. I like the manifolds having a vband.

Saw this kit a while ago on The370z, beautiful setup. Agree with Cux350z about the price range being out of the realm of most owners on our platform. Good luck though!

Oh god here we go. Cux, you do not speak for me. This thread is to help with the interest someone might have for this kit. I am. And please don't talk to me about time table. My apologies if your offended for speaking for everyone else when you shouldn't. I have also been helping with Tj (midnight6) to get the ball rolling for this kits since a lot of other ones are discontinuing. If you can't afford it, then don't buy it and please keep to yourself.

Here we go nothing. Showing interest is not the same as opening the wallet and actually paying for the kit. I get he is your buddy and all but reality is exactly like i stated.......the people that were spending 10k on this platform for a turbo kit left years ago. Sure there may be 1 or 2 but what was the last big successful build on here?

Besides, i don't need this kit. For what I have spent on my car I could buy 5 of those kits, easily.

How many SOHO ST kits sold for that price or just a shade under? Lots more DE engines out there to get turbo kits and they just are not selling. People are looking to ebay for 2k kits.

The kit looks great don't get me wrong. Hope it does come to fruition since the HR did not get a lot of love.

Anyway, I await your build thread. When it happens, PM me. Ill be the first to congratulate ya.

i don't get how you guys can say this is way high... the Greddy kit is 10k with no fuel system, no tuning software, or some other parts.... and the GTM turn key kit (if you can get it from them) starts at 7500 and goes to 9000 depending on what stage you want.. I don't see the difference.

yes i see your point of the kid generation buying them and cutting corners and everything, but for the good majority of us that love the cars and want a turbo kit this doesn't seem like a bad deal to me...

Greddy kits are on back order until who knows when right now, and i'm seeing some weary things from GTM.

the upgradeablilty on this kit is leaps and bounds above any other kit on the market because of the use of vband manifolds, not the mention they are casted STAINLESS and tubular over the conventional steel log manifolds.

hell even if there is not enough interest to get them to make a kit specific for the 350z platform i'm considering buying one and making it work myself.

oh dont get me wrong. Not saying the kit isnt worth it. Saying its out of the ballpark for most of the people on here. 2 different things.

I wouldnt give GTM a dollar that I wiped my *** with.
Like i said before, not much love for HR and Forced Induction options.

Agree with Crux350z

Too much money for this quite old platform. You're better of buying a used Greddy Kit if you're really strung up on having a twin or better yet just go BP Single and call it a day.

Its way high becuase in order to justify a 8700$ turbo kit, you ALOT more money in add in additional parts. Noone would put that expensive of a kit on a non-built motor.

built motor, big fuel system, drivetrain, advanced ECU, etc

If you arent building out a 800+whp car, you can get a 5000$ Boosted Performance single turbo kit, install in a couple hours and be done with it.

The headers are really nice, just like the GTRs, but the GTR owners have deep pockets and a platform that is built around boost from the factory.

Not tryin to **** in your cereal, but until you finish a big build with a 9000$ turbo kit as a starting point, you dont really understand the final cost.

It is a great kit, but honestly if you're going to be willing to put $10k into a kit and $10k into a motor (to take advantage of this kit), you might as well start with a 370z (and you could hit 500 whp and not have to build the motor necessarily).

Why would you need two Turbos? BP is faster.

LOL, but the more options I say bring it on. I do agree with Cux, looking at my bills to keep upping the limit on my Z is getting ridiculous.

This kit is 7 years late.

I love the design of the exhaust manifolds.
