Function & Form – Brandon’s 350Z

350Z (1 of 10)

While out at a meet this past Fall with some friends, we couldn’t help but notice the massive amounts of leaves that had fallen at the park that day.  It would be the perfect spot to put a car!  So what car could get there was the question.  With many of the static cars too low to even touch the grass line, Brandon’s bagged 2003 Nissan 350Z was the perfect candidate.

Brandon picked up this supercharged 350Z from New Jersey in late 2012.  His goal for the car was to make it a show vehicle that could still perform on the street.  With that in mind, he did his first modification, a Stage III clutch with a multidisk, lightweight flywheel.

Brandon’s motivation through this build has come from the many 350Z’s that he has seen at shows such as Canibeat’s First Class Fitment.  He hopes to be accepted into them some day with his car.

Future plans also include doing a combination of a twin turbo set up along with the supercharger to really make his Nissan fly!

Big thanks goes to R/T Tuning in Lansdale, PA for the air ride install and Sparxs Automotive for all of his other maintenance needs.
