Kalvin Malli: 1990 Nissan 300ZX

2019 TUNER BATTLEGROUNDS CHAMPIONSHIP CHAMPION

Kalvin Malli has been in the car scene for a long time, and recently picked up his 1990 Nissan 300ZX. When he found the car, the fact it was rust free drew him in, and the automatic transmission didn't matter since he was going to swap it anyway. After a few months of enjoying the car in its boring stock form, he dropped in a 2JZ-GTE and got to work building something totally new for him.
