Rob suggested running Stillen Gen3 intakes and predicted greater power gains with a tune over the AAM setup. Leo’s 370z now makes 318hp/260tq to the wheels, a significant improvement over the AAM setup indeed!
ZCarGarage and Z Owners of Northern California (ZONC) visited the amazing Canepa Design Museum and Showroom facility in Scotts Valley. We had almost 50 cars meet at the shop this morning!
The short drive to Canepa via highway 17 was fun with Z’s old and new everywhere:
S130, S30, Z31, Z32, Z33, Z34s and few Datsun Roadsters showed up too!
Everyone enjoyed visiting Canepa Design. We were treated to an extensive tour of the facility including the showrooms and and ultra-clean workshop.
I didn’t know that the Mercedes Benz 300SL was a full tube-frame car until today! Here is a fully restored chassis sans body:
This 1920’s Duesenburg was restored at Canepa. It’s extremely rare and possibly one of the most expensive cars in the world!
Canepa’s role in making Porsche 959s legal in the US also allowed them to extract more power too. Some of these cars are making more than 640hp! There were no less than six 959s at the shop:
“Rob Fuller and his team are the BEST in the game. His team is so passionate in what they do. I am going to be honest, I should have came to this shop to begin with. I had my car modified with a Vortech Supercharger, fuel injectors and fuel pump. After the install I also had another shop tune my car with Uprev. It did not run well at all. Mind you, I have been driving it for 9 months before bringing it to Rob’s team. I asked him to tune my car and naturally he agreed to it. It took Rob’s team to figure out what was wrong in minutes. He rearranged his schedule to accommodate the correction. I have to admit, Rob and his team are the best mechanics in NorCal. You guys are probably reading, why I didn’t go to them first, well they are 3 hours from where I live and there isn’t a moment I regretted going to the closer shop and not making the extra drive to going to the best. If UPREV sends you to a shop other than Z Car Garage I tell you to think again and make the extra effort to make this shop your first choice…”
We are just a few days from the fun run to Canepa Design on October 26, 2013! ZCarGarage and Z Owners of Northern California (ZONC) have arranged for a full tour of the amazing Canepa Design Museum and Showroom facility along with a beautiful drive through the Santa Cruz Mountains. The tour is impressive with a full look at how restorations are done on Porsche 959s to vintage race cars that you see at the major Historic Racing events. It is truly a candy store for automotive fans!
