To give the car that added sporty touch, a custom removable half cage was built.

The 240z comes from the factory with a pair of storage compartments located behind the front seats. The compartments are kind of small and not really useful for anything, so we decided to repurpose one of them to hold the battery, adding to the clean look under the hood.

As we always say, it’s not a Cyrious build if it doesn’t have a full custom exhaust. Not only will this car look good, it’s gonna sound pretty badass too!

As with any used engine obtained from the importers, this one would need a thorough cleaning and rebuild from the ground up before being put in to its new home.

Wouldya just look at that? The RB26 certainly looks right at home in the engine bay of a 240z!

We’ll leave it at that before this post gets really long. Keep your eyes peeled for the next installment here at CyriousGarageworks.com!
