    Having already turned one Zed into a submarine and havning only just made it to work this morning I was wondering if any of you engineering geniuses can design me a set of outrigger floats so that I can get home tonight.

    Equipment at hand:

    6 44 gallon drums
    1 Roll of duct tape

    I would be thinking along the lines of getting some steel wheels, welding a drum to each one by the end of the drum then welding some bits of metal coming off the drums welded to the back wheels so you get floatation and a kind of paddle steamer effect...

    No Andy it's my new TT Z32... It's already lasted longer than my first 32 (NA), but I'd like for it to last a little longer

    Theres more rain on the way, suggest you go to bunnings and buy some PVC pipe and a bend to make a snorkel for your intake :)

    Don't bother - go all the way, remove the hatch and slap on 2 x 300hp outboards:br:

    ryzan Black Mesa? Fat chance...

    Buy something that has a snorkel on it, and park the zed up!

    That's one way to get a 600hp Z

    Sorry, don't have any drums or duct tape. Received the following 300zx product brochure the other day though - think it is for Queenslanders though...

    Do these come in a bolt on kit and how soon can I get one?? I'm s'posed to be heading down south later this week but I'm currently surrounded by water.

    Few questions, firstly how will the snorkel work with my pod filter? Will I lose much hp with the snorkel fitted on my fully sick na? And secondly, can I turbocharge or supercharge the outboard and drive it legally on my P's? Or am I limited to a max of 200kw on the outboard or car engine combined?:rofl::rofl::rofl:

    If you use stickers to attach the snorkel, you will actually gain hp... trust me bro...

    Hidds THAT annoying guy....

    yep, he speaks the truth, i put like 4 stickers on the other day, and i gained 50hp each one.... so fast!

    Does it matter what type of stickers you use? Am I right in assuming the bigger the better and stickers that say Unit and Honda Motorsports yield greater power gains yes?
