Default Fastcolt caught street racing a LS2 350z

Searching youtube and found this....I saw LS2 350z vs T28 miata and thought hmmmm, what are the odds? I've seen this 350z floating around town (SOUNDS SICK!) and then saw the white miata.....its gotta be fastcolt (Looks like the end of the Berlin Turnpike to you locals..). In the second vid I see the 350z's plate is from CT and in the third vid I know that road, Rt5 in Wallingford, its gotta be him. Not sure I'd wanna line up with this thing (Looks like it could easily be an 11sec car after he irons out some things)....

Thats a sick swap, I dont really like 350Zs but that one is awesome. What does the LS2 come in OE? That must be a very fun miata to hold that Z like it does.

Camaro's, GTO, vettes....I think last I heard Fastcolt was running high teens for boost like myself. He lives right around the corner from me but we havn't met up yet...

A kid at my job was telling me about this z...I guess the owner goes to all the car hang outs and tries to race everyone....Fastcolt was prolly just trying to shut this kid up.

Just watched the third vid and thought to myself, "Self, those 350z's look like total *** from the rear." Almost Prius-meets-minivan bad.

Nice videos... I just can't comprehend why you would want to swap a LS2 into a 350z. Seems like you'd be much better off just buying a C6. Cheaper, lighter, better handling, no headaches? I really can't see an upside to the swap.

I drove my greddy setup daily for years. Just because I've been off the road for a year doesn't mean I'm still not around. Anyways once I'm back on the roads I'll be way better off with everything I've changed.

Hopefully all us CT guys can get up this summer and go for some runs.

Its okay vash, my car was off the road for almost a year. Now back with mspnp, way better ic setup, 2.5" dp and exhaust, wbo2, boost control, proper oil drain, kyb/gc, and a decent tune. Feels like a completely different car. And I still haven't ran over 10psi yet.

The wait will be worth it.

I can't comprehend why people fail to see why you WOULDN'T want an LSx swap in ANYTHING....

Engine type OHV V-8
aluminum block and heads
6-bolt main bearings
Displacement 364 cu in / 6.0 liter
Bore 4.00 in / 101.6 mm
Stroke 3.62 in / 92 mm
Compression ratio 10.9:1
Fuel delivery Returnless, sequential port fuel injection
Redline 6500 rpm
Horsepower 400 @ 5200 rpm
Torque (lb. ft.) 395 @ 4000 rpm

Theres plenty of win with that motor.

2006 LS2 Vette is going to cost you about $26,000 still where a running good condition 2003 350z is worth around $12,000 and I'm quite sure you could find one blown up a lot cheaper. LS2s are worth about 5000, a little time and work you've got a car which is more unsuspecting and quicker than a vette...

Or you could do it on the cheap; Get the LQ9 6.0 liter 345hp/380tq motor from the Escalade which you can buy from a salvage company for around $1000..... Spend the extra 4000 on a ProCharger, push about 6psi and make 500rwhp....


Plus only ***** drive Vettes.

I wasn't insulting the motor in any way, I'm all for throwing an LSX in random cars, it just seems like there are better shells to start with. If you want to drop 12 grand on a fat piggy of a shell be my guest. Personally I'd rather spend $1000 on a miata/240 shell that weighs almost half as much. It's a sweet car, no doubt, but taking a motor out of a 3100lb car to put it in a 3500lb car just isn't something that makes logical sense to me (guessing on the weights, I'm sure I'm off a little bit, but you get the idea).

Is that 350z running an open diff? I'm pretty sure I saw only 1 tire spin there.

He could just spend that $5000 on a turbo set up and be as fast if not faster than his ls2 set up... But maybe he just wanted to be different
