I’m a new driver and I plan for this to be my first car, it’s un-modded.
I'm about to start on the radio/audio rework an my Z and still have a few questions.
1) If I bypass (or remove completely) the factory amp, will I lose my keys in ignition ding and headlights on ding?
2) Is there any wires I need to reroute or tie together at the amp?
3) For those that have ran new 16ga or 14ga speaker wire into the doors, is it really the absolute nightmare that people say it is?
Thanks for any info.
I need a commute car, but always wanted a Z. And I always eyed the orange. Screw rational thinking, let's look into a Z anyways
I search and search and I don't see many orange Zs on the market.
Some stupid expensive ones and some reasonable ones but have TONs of miles. Or are manual or convertible. Really not into those. I realize at this I'm being choosey I guess. I'm asking the impossible somewhat but anyone find anything? Or want to sell? :p
So as the title says, I just changed the valve cover on my 08 Touring because the spark plug seal was leaking and when I started the car it took a little longer than normal. I thought maybe it was because the car sat for a while or something so I paid no mind to it, but when I drove it, my rpms go up smoothly with no problems but I have almost no power. Also when I got back from my little test drive my TCS, Slip and check engine lights all came on at the same time. Anyone else have this issue or know a fix?
Edit: Sorry guys, I'm a noob to this and I don't have a code reader.. I ordered one though and I'll definitely get back to you when it comes in.
Is there a way to get the rear running zero camber and toe for a 350Z? Btw a way to make sure it stays zero camber and toe, Such as a adjustable part of some sort? Edit: Title suspension by i meant rear, you get what i mean right?
Hi all, I'm planning to in a few months get myself a 350z as a daily. This of course means driving it through the winter and snow and whatnot as well. Now NYC is pretty good on ploughing the snow on major roads fairly quickly, and I do plan on getting myself a full set of blizzaks on all 4 corners with some steelies, but even with a proper winter setup im worried about how it'll do when I do have to drive through some snow. Anyone with experience dailying it in the Northeast (with winter tires or good all seasons) who could give some feedback and advice I'd greatly appreciate.
Hey lads, So I’ve been going through a mid-car crisis as far as plans for my Z. I currently have an all stock DE. However, I have recently been looking into replicating the VQ38HR. I’ll be contacting many places, but I’m looking to all you engineers out there: is that kid of engine able to be replicated on a DE, or should I look at getting an HR swap and try using that instead. For an idea on what would be done: roughly 360-380hp while staying NA. I can’t remember all the specs right now, but will do more research. Any information is helpful. Thanks guys
Just a question ive been wondering since a 350z is on my mind to purchase in a year or two.
Hey guys, I've got a v35 (g35) Skyline coupe with the VQ35DE in it, and I've just chucked in a Mantik single mass flywheel and heavy duty clutch combo after reading about them on this subreddit. I was expecting a bit of chatter, but I wasn't expecting the cabin noise to be different too. Can anyone explain why it sounds so different, and has anyone else had the same thing happen?
Sounds a bit like the rumble in this http://goedhartvoordieren.nl/?page=r/350z/comments/3uh2i4/amazing_vq_sound_from_my_friends_z33_sorry_for/ video at the 20 second mark and around the 23-24 second mark when they're accelerating, mine is quieter though. Reminds me of a Subaru almost. After finding that video I'm guessing that it isn't something to worry about, just an unexpected bonus.
