  1. Great thread dave_7 (I've been too lazy to start my own one, I really should do it at some point) I've not seen any 370z's out on track at all, granted I've only just managed 2 this year in my 350 (as I rebuilt my engine), so it's great to see a Nismo out there too. Unfortunately I went past enjoying it on the road, primarily down to spherical bushings
  2. Not that this'll specifically help but I think this guy is also going through the same kind of thing.. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC39KB7-StA774VHp9s4i04A/videos
  3. Back in 2017 I wired up an oil temperature sensor, and it was working without an issue (old thread here: https://www.350z-uk.com/topic/114588-wiring-in-an-oil-temperature-sensor-for-the-inept/ ). The way it's wired up is tapped into the passenger side cigarette lighter wires (red/black), and the socket itself still works (ie phone charging), as well as the gauge working with ignition. However since then I've just fully rebuilt the engine and moved the single-wire sensor from it's original place onto the mishimoto sandwich plate. After moving it, of course it stopped working. So
  4. Watching now as this is the tyre test I'm most interested in:
  5. I've got one in the garage I'm not using. BUT you'd probably want to get the flexi's replaced at some point soon. Can PM you a couple of photo's of it if you want.
  6. Good stuff ! Which company did your cage ? And how do you find it driving with I guess half interior ? My Z is basically just for track stuff now, so I'm thinking I may as well gut the rear and sort a cage at some point this year.
  7. Took a while to get my one but happy with what he did ! Nice guy to chat to as well, I tried to persuade him to do a bolt in roll cage too as I don't think there are many easy options.
  8. Ah did h-dev build your engine? I remember Jez telling me someone else was having an N/A de build, as I saw a bunch of familiar boxes with nice bits inside Sorry for swaying off topic guys!
  9. Ah great, I must have misunderstood what Jez meant then. Saves me a little bit of cash if it's not required in that case
  10. Granted I'm some way off from even starting my car up yet (the engine is in pieces in my living room)... However i was advised to run an O2 wideband sensor like an AEM 30-4110, well my machinists was recommended something, and I vaguely remember Jez saying something about my OEM one isn't accurate when he was mapping it last time. My car is an 04 DE, I'll double check with the vin/ecu number to see if it's wideband or narrow. Lastly, my PPE long tubes have two bungs per side, and when I was running the car before I was just using their extension cables that relocated th
  11. I'd like to grab the swirl pot, and look forward to seeing what other bits they come up with too. However, just got to ask, have you got your dyno sheet/build thread ?
  12. Definitely interested in one of these, is there a 350z-uk.com discount available?
  13. James, the only important thing here is how much money are you thinking about spending? And are you doing the work or paying someone else? That's the most important part. And just in case... Because I'm just in the process of putting my engine back together with cams/pistons/lth/ported heads etc etc I did my build in a weird way check my posts or look at 350Butcher's build thread (granted HR but still similar). And the figures being put out there are hubs if I'm reading that right, a little different from WHP. And with NA I really
  14. Glad everything is pretty much sorted with this ! Prior to dismantling my engine I had also done a similar thing with the intake (although my filter is by the crash bar). If the car is sitting I think you'll just have the slightly higher intake temp until it's moving. I also wrapped my PPE headers and have some flexible heat-shield stuff that I'll put over them once my engine is built. Actually hoping to finally pick up my heads today ! (9 months later!!!)
