Shawn's 78' 280z Turbo

Shawn Agha's 1978 280z Turbo


This build was once thought cursed from the beginning, but time and perseverance over the last 2 years proved otherwise. From the beginning as a poorly running L28 with Dual SUs, to a nightmare L28ET swap botched due to an inexperienced shop, we picked this vehicle up from it's lowest point and corrected every wrong. From fuel system rust, to constant electrical woes, for every few problems we corrected, a new one would rear it's ugly head.

This is the product of 2 long years of heart ache, frustration, and long nights back to the drawing
