The trouble with campaigning a late model drag car (or powerplant for that matter) is the scarcity of performance parts. Drive a 92 honda civic? No problem - would you like those pistons in forged, cast, oversized, or tartar control? After experimenting with nitrous jettings of up to 375hp and subsequently going through shortblocks like they're going out of style, Andrew Rubio's 2003 350z is taking shape. Running a pair of Power Enterprise turbos, the Z car has pulled a best run of 10.86@125mph and put down almost six hundred ponies to the rear wheels. Not bad for a street car, but with R&D underway, 1700hp is within grasp. Currently the RWD import drag scene is dominated by stroked 2JZGTE toyota supra motors - the extra displacement in the Z's VQ35DE should stir things up.
