Thomas Nguyen was inspired by DK's drift 350Z in Tokyo Drift, and he took that aggressive and functional inspiration into his 2010 Nissan 370Z build. As years went on, little modifications turned into big projects, until the car was barely recognizable from the factory 370Z he picked up long ago.

FAVORITE MODIFICATION:
"Oh man, this is a tough one. I have had the AAM twin turbo kit for about two years with about 30k miles on it. Had over 600whp since the beginning. Having that much power on a VQ platform really changes the whole car. I do daily the car and surprisingly has held up on its ends so far. Hopefully we can push out 700whp in 2018."

FUTURE MODIFICATIONS:
"6-point roll cage
Once the motor gives out on me, I plan on swapping a 2jz into it."
