i heard z-tune closed down awhile back now.

i heard many good things about pdm racings work not the owner there tho..
i know that racing greed has a twinturbo 350z and a single turbo 350z. both turbo was installed and tuned there, the single turbo 350z had its engine built there too. the owner of RG, Tommy, is a very knowlegable guy and can probably answer most of ur questions about ur Z. my old 04 350z did some work there.

i would go check drive hard performance in richmond too. i havnt done anything there myself, but a friend with a 370z had his amuse exhaust and coilover installed there. they seem alright. And they have a twin turbo 350z shop car too.

Personally i would take my car to one of these shops depending on which one is closer to you. Racing greed did have some negative comments before, but my experience wasnt as ppl have descirbed on other fourms

since z tune close down, any shop that specialize in nissan like $$$$$ was? all the other shop ^ listed seem to work on some z, have a shop built z but maybe specialize in something else? for example i heard dhp specialize in euro and garage 5 specializes in hondas.

We have done multiple G35 and 350Zs with built engines, FI and custom fabrication or as just simple bolt ons.
What are you looking for?

Agreed. I have taken both of my Z's there and my TSX with awesome results. I doubt I would ever go anywhere else.
