1990 NISSAN 300ZX TT
Matt Budziosz first laid eyes on a Z32 at the age of five. It was that moment he fell into to the JDM scene and knew he’d one day own a Z Series. Now an adult, Budziosz has not only fulfilled his childhood dream but has build a champion show car with his 1990 Nissan 300ZX TT.
“I ended up buying this one which was a factory original naturally aspirated model (which I converted to twin turbo with a JDM TT Swap) and even now when I see a Z32 on the street, regardless of trim level or even condition, it puts a big smile on my face,” explains Budziosz.
Budziosz’s original intention was to keep the car “as close to stock as possible with small touches like wheels and suspension,” but that quickly changed when he began exploring performance tuning and modifications. “I did the twin turbo conversion and right away decided to get all the bolt ons available [and] upgrade the turbos and fuel system. Of course with that came the NIStune ECU. The 275 Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires I had just weren't getting traction, even in 3rd gear on the highway, which led to the wide body build.”
The twin turbo conversion, which was done by AMS Motorsports, helps bring the 300ZX engine to 550 whp with 500 ft-lbs of torque. Of course there are some who’d say that’s plenty of speed for a daily driver but not Budziosz – he’s aiming for 1000+ whp!
Budziosz extends a special thanks to a handful of people who helped him get here. Special thanks goes out to Chris from JA Automotive, Hilary from Ink & Iron Autobody, Dan from Dan Fournier Metalworks, Vuk from AMS Motorsports, Blain from RIgtheous Garage, and Ronan from RoRo Designs.
