Z Tune Copy On Ebay


Recommended Posts

I think its a german crew that make them - these guys are the aus distributor.

From my understanding they are pretty good - but still Matt's car for ~$100k and over $100k to spare... I know what I would be buying.

^^ True yeah...

Some sources say it cost over $180,000 US to make, a Z-Tune and since the AUS Dollar is pretty much 1 to 1 with US (Period)...

What makes them think they can charge more of what the real / genuine R34 GTR Z-Tune would cost Nissan / Nismo to make.

well, its brand new, 0km's besides the chassi i guess. its not too bad. if you had the same equivalent new from nismo just built, i think it would still cost more or fetch a higher price. especially imports, shipping, rego etc.

replica or not, it would still be the exact same car if same parts are used, whether built by nismo or by these guys.

only thing i dont get in this entire ad is this : Be the first to own a 2011 Japo Spec I R34 GTR Z-Tune Replica in Australia. This R34 was completely stripped down and then rebuilt with all new NISMO Z-Tune parts making it better than the original Z-Tunes.

how can a exact replica be better then the original???

So if I bought a R34 GTR for ~75k.. You're saying all I have to do is rebuild the engine and I can sell if for 200k+... wow tidy profit there

It's ebay.. They can write whatever they like.. I'm the hottest guy alive..

*Because this is written on the forum everything I say is obviously completely true

For $265K, I'd be picking up a tidy VS2 from auction in Japan then sending it to Omori to get closer to the real deal...

Hey, that's my name!!

(after quick trip to deed poll)

no, i was just thinking if you do all the same stuff to a GTR with say less than 30,000km on the clock car alone should be 70k+ then the extensive body work, acid bath, painting, interior rebuild, (dont know if the body got any stiffening), then all the engine mods, drivetrain mods, sourcing all those parts, labor, time and effort, i do think it should cost around the 200K.

even though it is not original signed off by nismo, but its built the way it is in every aspect, it would still count as a z tune in one way or another. to me at least. if i had that exact same car, brand new from factory AND original from NISMO, i think people would spend 300k+

thats just my thought.

its just some kid trying to pull a scam, he just sold a ps2 with controllers recently, the pictures of the car are carrying euro plates and that does not look like a 760hp engine.

Further more, you will receive your order 4-6 months after payment is made and the order is processed.

I'd be happy with that interior, that's some awesome trim work.

My only complaint now is - why try and sell it off the back of the Z-Tune? Why not forge their own path? It needs a unique body kit and wheels.

The car is actually built by a German tuning company as their 'interpretation' on the Z-Tune and scored a full feature in Speedhunters

Weather the seller is a genuine seller is another question

http://speedhunters....z-tune-r34.aspx

Yeah, I have seen that as well on Speedhunters.

A great job welldone, but the only represents a Z-Tune cosmetically.

"I'm splitting hairs here..."

Engine parts / upgrade are not Z-Tune, as there is no Nismo engine parts used.

It's all ARC and HKS + I am still questioning if it's a 2.8L...

Car has only replicated a similar power figure with other branded parts of what an original Z-Tune may output.

for 265K I would just buy a Brandspankers R35 and goto town on it.

I'm saying this an I dont even like the R35

I agree with Chef.... why try and ride on the Z-Tune's back? For that kind of investment you could build something wonderfully epic, even if you were to contract all the work out.

And that vehicle would never retain value like a Z-Tune... because it's just not.

Yes...

And just like HDT cars (and others), there is value in the "Numbered Plate"

It's very cool, but no cooler then R34 GT-R's that a lot of guys have built, many of whom that are on this website !

Honestly, now, don't call me a hater for that much money I would build in my opinion the ultimate street R32 GT-R and invest the rest.

And probably a DR30.

    • Haha likewise, take my shit box for a spin and maybe you'll end up wanting a R33 shit box again lol...  
    • @Jasoncauser looks like a tight technical track, and definitely fun! Let's hope I make it to that day 😎  
    • The springs just lets the valve bleed off pressure/oil and it bypasses the feed gallery and heads back to where the pickup feed is On the LS the oil gets the the bearings...eventually  This vid explains the OEM pump well IRT the pressure release valve and how the bypass works The oil pressure light coming on intamitantly could just be a sticky valve, but, why pull something apart and not put something better in  I believe the low oil pressure light comes on somewhere between 5-10 psi Well will stick a gauge in after the installation to see what difference it makes at hot idle and higher RPM, and by high RPM I mean 6300 RPM.....LOL
    • My bottom end was rebuilt... so I think it's standard? Or refreshed.. standard? I didn't do it - I bought it with a lot of receipts but it has new bearings, new pump and was re-assembled. Apparently I have the standard flow, standard pressure pump. I did notice the oil pressure for a LS at idle is quite low, but not critically bad, I am happy that it's at about 28psi now (that my gauges work/don't leak). I would have probably specced the high pressure one, but I'll admit my ignorance after making my other post, I don't see how the pressure spring changes things. Given the pressure is a resistance to flow... high flow should also = high pressure, and your oil pump specifications should be dictated by how the engine is built (hence the sincere thankyou video man)
    • my first time on the track, just after getting the 32. tyres were 3yr old NT01's, rotors were cactus, pads were street pads. You can see the vibrations when I hit the brakes lol. After this is when I put new BDA rotors, Hi Temp Brake fluid and Intima type 2 pads. Wow what a difference
