  1. Is the rest of your exhaust oem at the moment? But yeah I'd definitely reccomend a remap if you do go down the HFC route to get the best gains, and also turn off the post cat O2 sensors to eliminate the risk of them triggering the EML.
  2. Sounds like the perfect excuse to upgrade to HFCs. Cheaper than oem & decent power gains, what's not to love 😁 (unless you really don't want any increase in exhaust volume).

    This ^^. Totally agree that you should take a little time to get used to the car first because it'll all be new to you, but once you've got a good idea of what you're happy with/want to improve then personally I'd smash out the mods as fast as funds allow.

    Welcome to the forum and congrats on your purchase. A plenum spacer is a good idea if the engine is a DE, seeing as you've already got an aftermarket cat-back exhaust then the only other bolt on mod is HFCs or decats really. An induction system will add a bit of noise and engine bay bling but won't actually give any gains. You can get the car remapped (Uprev) but best to do this last once you've got all other performance mods in place. In addition to brake fluid and coolant as Azurez33 mentioned I'd also reccomend fresh gearbox & diff oil.
  5. If you're just looking for a comfortable, cheap to run commuter then I don't think the 370z is for you. I use my 350z as a daily all year round and it's not the most sensible choice, but it does put a big grin on my face every time I drive it.
  6. That one you linked is actually being sold by an owner on here funnily enough- I think even the most expensive 370z (Nismo) was just under 40k new, so you shouldn't have to worry about the extra payment anyway.
  7. Welcome to the forum. As above, the 370z engine has never changed, but in 2017 the tax brackets did. Pre 2017 it was banded purely based on CO2/km, the 370z was band L & the XKR was band M (the highest). Whereas now after the first year every vehicle is charged the same (unless the emmisons are zero, in which case its still free). Also if the list price is over 40k you have to pay a supplement for the first 5 years. 20-25pmg is easily achievable, and I'd expect other running costs like servicing, parts etc to be a fair bit cheaper than you're paying now.
  8. New and used vehicle prices are crazy at the moment so it’s hard to judge really. All due to the global semiconductor shortage. Manufacturers are struggling to build enough cars, which drives up demand in the secondhand market.
  9. Shouldn’t cause any adverse effects other than that less ground clearance obviously.
  10. I have the exact same symptom at the moment, last time the car was at H-Dev they confirmed that sadly it is radiator leaking. I’ve ordered an all aluminium Koyo one along with a silicone hose kit which they’re gonna fit for me in a couple of weeks.
  11. Not sure this is possible with the 370z because of the way the system works. @cs2000 is probably the man to ask.
  12. How about a proper pipe cutter? That's what I used when I had to repair my oem system and it was dead easy. They're a great tool, not expensive and leave a really nice clean/straight cut.
  13. Agreed, a must for single exit systems imo 👌
  14. Great review, thanks for the writeup I've been thinking about getting one of these for a while.
  15. Still not the best photo Judging by the size/shape of the backbox I'd still guess Miltek, it's a lot larger than most other aftermarket systems (which is why it's a bit quieter).
