2004 Nissan 350Z – Owned by : Palmerwmd
September’s Ride of the Month is Fred’s , aka Palmerwmd’s, 2004 Nissan 350Z. It is an Enthusiast Trim, 6 Speed Model.
Fred bought his car in September 04, a mere 10 weeks after the cars assembly date and sold his beloved Infiniti Q45t and SR’ed S13 (both to Nico Members) to make this car a reality for him.
Fred’s 350Z is Daytona Blue and was produced in the last few weeks of the 2004 production run. As a late 04 , also known as 2004.5’s, it has a couple of things early 04’s and 03’s don’t have. An example is the strengthened Manual Transmission vs. earlier Models.
Fred has been modding the car within a couple of months of purchasing it, despite originally vowing to leave it bone stock for years to come.
On the 30th of August, after the installation of the new Greddy blowoff valve, which also addressed a previously unknown boost leak, he had another dyno run performed and the results stand at a repeatable and impressive 411 whp!
He hopes to add Project Mu Brake Pads and Steel braided brake lines to the car, as soon as they become available here for his Nissan. A fuel system upgrade is also definitely in his immediate future he says.
When pressed, he also wont deny that he may up pulleys to an 11 psi Pulley and is currently mulling an engine internals build-up ,to support even higher PSI Pulleys.
We like where he has taken his car and are curious to see how much further our friend will take this already impressive Z.
