  1. You can test the drop links by parking with two wheels on the pavement kerb, turn the steering to full lock and then drive off the kerb. If it's the drop links you should hear a clunk when the car drops back onto the road.
  2. Yes, first registration on the DVLA form is for the date first registered in Japan - month/year e.g. mine was 02/2004.
  3. My MTEC drilled and grooved discs have done 40,000 miles without cracking on a 350Z. Pads are from the Ferodo Premier range, e.g. FDB1561 fronts. This is just normal road use, and I'm not the King of late braking on the road and don't do track days.
  4. I used Paul at http://www.japautoagent.com/ and I'd recommend him, particularly if you are looking for a good low mileage model.
  5. Had the same symptoms although mine would eventually go up to 120 psi and stick there. I bought the following 25070CD00A Oil Pressure Sensor from eBay which cured it completely: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/25070CD00A-Oil-Pressure-Sensor-Sender-Switch-Fit-Nissan-Altima-Armada-Frontier/183441585101?hash=item2ab5f873cd:g:DdkAAOSw0iBboKYL:rk:1:pf:0 Note the genuine looking Nissan packaging
  6. Works a treat: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/25070CD00A-Oil-Pressure-Sensor-Sender-Switch-Fit-Nissan-Altima-Armada-Frontier/183441585101?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649
  7. Like the looks, what did you fabricate the rear diffuser fins with?
  8. Try Adrian at Torqen, that's who I bought mine from: https://www.350z-uk.com/profile/14620-adriantorqen/
  9. Agreed, I can't see all the work I did on the interior of my plenum
  10. The standard plenum doesn't have that much clearance past the end of the air intake runners, so unless the trumpets are longer, something like that with less clearance to the trumpets should be possible. Maybe starting with aluminium sheet as a backing plate attached between the throttle bodies and the trumpets, and then fabricate a box containing a circular inlet that will fasten to this. Ideally you want to feed cool air in from a high air pressure area such as through the grille. If they will fit a DE, I'd use two 350Z HR air-boxes and then connect these to the boxes surrounding the trumpets. The HR air-boxes could then be fed by something like the EVO-R cold air intake. See my efforts on my DE: http://s12.photobucket.com/user/GrahameJ/media/IMG_2404_zpsvx8xzzzi.jpg.html
  11. Low volume knock at low speeds hitting bumps is probably due to the drop links on the anti-roll bar, which are cheap and easy to replace. The squeaks could be from the ant-roll bar rubber bushes, again cheap and easy to replace, and worth replacing with SuperPro polyurethane bushes which retain the grease better, and improve the handling on bumpy roads. If your compression arm bearing has gone then it would be better to do that first!
  12. Looks like people aren't filling in the DVLA registration form properly, mine was £245 last year and will be £255 this year for a 2004 import. First registration on the form is for Japan, which was 02/2004 in my case.
  13. September 1st 2015. When filling out the DVLA form you need to put the date the car was first registered in Japan - 02/2004 in my case. I used Japautoagent Ltd and they got me a car with 10,000 mileage and no rust, and filled out the DVLA form. Worth ringing Paul there before you go on holiday: http://www.japautoagent.com/
