I decided to take a spontaneous trip up to the Power House Amuse facility yesterday. It was a long trip and by the time I got there, I was pretty sleepy. However, once I saw the Super Leggera parked in the driveway I got so excited that I was wide awake lol.

I have always loved Amuse products and wanted to take the opportunity to introduce myself in person to the staff if possible. Unfortunately Hideki Tanabe, the company's founder passed last year so I did not know what to expect once I entered the doors. I was greeted by a female that was very pleasant. As we talked more, I soon found out that it was Tanabe-san's wife and that she is the new president of Power House Amuse. I soon found out that she is really friendly and genuine. Without going in to too much detail about what was discussed, it was nice to witness a top tuner company that is down to earth and passionate about what they do without the cockiness.

I truly look forward to more trips back to their facility for future projects! :) For now, enjoy the pics.

What I first saw when we pulled up curbside:

I'm working on something with them and hopefully the project pans out when I bring my Z to Japan.

It's moving along slowly but surely. This Japan trip involved visiting friends and family, business, and the car project.

Already got a full Ti exhaust. I was thinking more of a Superleggra S14. Kinda based off the 350Z but onto an S14 would be hawt.
