We love to install bolt-on parts that add power to your Z/G car. At Z Car Garage UPREV tuning can maximize power gains from individual modifications like intake/exhaust upgrades. Here are two examples of how we consistently achieve better performance through tuning, with mods or even without!
Joey T’s Infiniti Q60 gained 18hp/11tq with UPREV tuning for a total of 323hp/267tq to the wheels. Note the increase in power and torque from 2500rpm to redline:
Dax S’ 370z picked up 14hp/8tq for a total of 315hp/255tq to the wheels. More importantly is the power delivery with gains throughout the entire rev range:

The Nissan R35 GT-R like any high performance vehicle, requires regular maintenance to ensure the car is performing its best and is well protected. Here at Z Car Garage we are not only interested in carrying out performance conversions, but can take care of all your Nissan R35 GT-R routine servicing. Enrique G came to us for 36k services on his Solid Red 2012 GT-R. He loves driving and you might recognize his car from our last fun run to Canepa Cars & Coffee:
While servicing the Nissan GT-R we only use genuine Nissan parts and oil that is recommended or exceeds the manufacturers standards. For example, the GT-R’s VR38 engine with its plasma-sprayed bores has been developed to run on Mobil 1 (0W-40) fully synthetic high performance engine oil. As such ZCG carries this oil specifically for GT-R servicing.
For those doing track days, we can tailor your service to include any extras you may need such as additional transmission fluid changes, alignment and dyno tuning. Give us a call to discuss your next pre or post track day service.
Enjoy The Ride, Enrique!
We love to hear about Datsun owners enjoying their cars with family. Pervis E has owned this 280z for many years and wanted to pass it on to his (lucky!) daughter. He thought it would be prudent to install some new tires for safety and also add some stylish wheels. We happily obliged with a set of 225/50/16 Bridgestone RE760 tires and timeless 16×7 Panasports:
Here are a few before/after shots:
Give us a call if you would like Panasports for your Z!
Could this be the retro-modern Z we’ve all been waiting for? Reality tells us chances are slim, but it does give Z-car fans something to dream about. This rendering was created by a designer from X-Tomi Design
, using the Fiat 124 as a base and grafting a “hardtop” on.
The Fiat 124 is actually built using the Miata chassis, so any hope of Nissan building this neo-240z by collaborating with Mazda is unlikely. Reality aside, we absolutely love this design and it hits all the right notes with styling cues that are truer to the original S30 than anything Nissan has released in several decades. What do you think? What drivetrain would you like to see?
At any rate, we would like the idea of a pure and simple Nissan sports car that is compact, with a powerful engine, lightweight body, and above all, an affordable price tag. Nissan, are you listening?
Datsuns Are Driven!
