Z-Tune #15 - Omori Factory restored MNPIII Z-Tune arrives down under.

Recommended Posts

The Z-Tune is finally HOME - After the what felt like an eternity of waiting the car has arrived in showroom condition. Some of you may have even seen it at GT-R Festival! Thank you to those who did stop by our stand to say hello!

Our guys will be in soon to polish & protect it up to 110%.

Here are some photos in the meantime straight off the truck and into our workshop.

Stunning - car looks amazing team - well done - a great outcome and another incredible restoration by Omori factory. 

How were they with the restoration - did you get much choice on what you wanted to do with it, or was it largely a refresh and refurb?

Great collectors car that hopefully gets to see more shows and driven a bit. Well done.

Nismo were fairly lenient on what options we had, though we let them make the majority of the decisions - after all, it is a Nismo restoration. We did convince them to let us change the colour, add the Nismo Carbon Intake Piping Kit - but didn't allow us to add the Nismo Carbon Airbox.

Seems odd to not be able to change the airbox, I am sure they have their reasons!

Yep! Could be anything. As far as we are concerned it's literally the exact same thing, just in carbon fiber.

Exactly - which does make it hard to justify for us non z tune owners haha

Fascinating they are extremely flexible on some fronts, but on others are quite strict - makes you wonder why... I'll try and track it down, there was a great blog from someone recently describing the whole process they went through getting their R34 refreshed.

Aki from http://www.r33gt-r.com/ is just getting his R33 GT-R done and dropped it off in June. He has expressed the same challenge around not having much information of the process while it is going on - so you are not the only ones.

We can only dream, even just the thought of shipping + refresh + shipping back makes it a costly exercise.

Thank you for that link! We didn't hear much about the entire process apart from questions here and there to confirm various aspects. It definitely was a costly exercise.

Any chance of those images in high res? A new desktop background would be cool.

Sure! let me know which one you want and I'll email it to you. Don't forget to give me your email! :)
