Haha oh yeah? The Michigan "drifters" huh? I moved here from NC about 2 years ago, so I've only met a few guys. CamryonBronze is from here, and 240GTR too. There are quite a few.

I attend Grand Rapids community college from September through April, live on the corner of Cherry and Grandville. I don't have an s-chassis but I've got a z31. I've got a friend who owns an s13 though. Don't know anyone that digs Nissans over there.

Thanks dude

I love the 17x9s but in order to fit it is a good idea to roll the rear fenders. Unfortunately they they scrap my front fender while turning. So I would go with like a 17x8.5 for the fronts.

Rota makes the sickest staggered wheels. Exiled, tuck that muffler and you'll have a clean-ass car. Stance is fucking proper, dude.

I don't fuck too much with turbos either. The T3 I've got has like no shaft play after 130,000 miles and I don't plan on throwing more than 300 hp into my Z. Can't wait to get this fucking VG33 block back from the machine shop, everything is ready to be bolted on and bolted in. Should be pretty mean, utilizing the stock VG30ET turbo on a higher compression truck motor.
