are you talking about stages of window tinting? if you are, i've never heard of that; they've always been listed by what % light gets through (my civic had 35, most allowed by law in georgia).

might you be talking about turbo?

No, he is saying that the guy who did his tint had a 300ZX with "stage 8" modifications.

I think stage 8 means different things to different people. I am not aware of any rules of thumbs about these things.

no i'm not talking about tint (i have 20% all around), but yes mod stages.
lol!

Stage 1 normally means basic turbo setup. After the turbo kit is installed, you can upgrade to different stages such as bigger turbo, injector, down pipe/exhaust and intercooler to get more power or better component. Different kit/setup may have different stages, and it's normally designated by the maufacturer...

Was he by chance talking a 300zx that he had built in a video game? I have a Stage 3 Skyline GTR on Need for Speed Underground :D :arrow: :D :D

Stage 1 means turbo? lol, sorry, your wrong.

Most the time (read, MOST OF THE TIME):

Stage 1 - Basic bolt ons (intake, header, exhaust)
Stage 2 - Headwork (cams, gears, PnP, valve job)
Stage 3 - Forced Induction (super, nitrous, turbo)

Of course this is with a car starting from NA. Obviously, turbo cars will have a similiar list, but Stage 3 would be MASSIVE turbo.

Stage 8, IMO, would be all out race. Fully built motor, standalone management, HUGE turbo and I/C, tube chassis carbon body.
