Default rg's 2002 Z06 'build thread'

If this is in the wrong place, please feel free to move it Admins!

I just would like to keep everything in one place and document what I do to this...

I recently picked up this 2002 Z06 with about 12,300 miles on it. Black with Mod Red interior. Mostly original, it had the following mods when I got it:

LG Motorsports Super Pro Longtube 1 3/4" Stainless Steel Header with High Flow Cats

Hurst Billet Plus 6 Speed "Short Throw" Shifter ( I have a new MGW ready to install)

Vararam VRB2 Ram Air Intake System & High Flow Carbon Fiber Power Duct with Z06 logo

Nitto "555R" 305/35/18 on rears and Nitto "555" 275/40/17 on fronts

Stock suspension is rolled down on stock bolts about 1/2"

Here are pictures of how I received it.

Nice choice of mods it came with. LT's, VR, shifter and a tune is all these cars really need to make them perfect imo. Would have been really awesome if it was an option when new. Thats all I've done to mine so far. That's a really nice looking low mile car, have fun with it!

I've had my black Z for 14 years, and I wish I'd gotten a red/mod red.

Thanks everyone! I was originally searching for a red one myself, but this one was too good a deal to pass up, and now I love the black.

Now I get to personalize it! Parts have already been coming in but I am waiting on a couple key parts to really finish off the interior.

Eventually, I will have some sort of Chrome wheels on it, but I will be blacking out the stock ones shortly.

All I have done so far is get the steering wheel wrapped in WheelSkins leather...








Get my Passport Max 2 mounted with a BlendMount and Wired in...









And get the front 3.5 speakers changed out...







Lots more to come. My new seats shipped today. I have an alpine Nav Double Din to install, and the shifter is getting changed out with an MGW.
