  1. Looking at the MOT history I don't see anything that is sketchy? Supercharged Z's don't tend to go for too much, especially with over 100k miles, people will think it's a ticking time bomb (it really isn't). Plus being a rev up people may be worried about getting engines for them.
  2. Hey, how much did you want for the DD's?
  3. The plugs were super mauled so couldn’t even unplug them, I’ve taken radios out of 2 Z’s in the past with no problems but this one just wouldn’t come out and being a car that can’t be put back on the road we thought we’d just cut it. Maybe a fuse popped that is causing the immobiliser to stay on? Maybe it's completely unrelated?
  4. Hello everyone, a bit of back story, a friend and I picked up a car that we’re turning into a track car and breaking some parts to make the money back. Today we decided to take the center console out and remove the old radio, gauges and the white box that connects the fans etc. we couldn't get the radio out at first so we decided to cut the wires that went into the OEM radio and then leave the clips inside the radio as a temporary solution (stupidly), I then went to turn on the car and realised the car wouldn’t fire up, it would turn over. It looked like the fuel sender went bad because it was showing no fuel, I thought that was odd so decided to plug everything I could back in, fan control module, gauges and it was now showing the fuel level I expected. But still didn’t fire up. Next we realised the red immobiliser was solid red when the ignition was on, and when the car was locked I noticed the immobiliser flashing like crazy for a couple of seconds. any information on what I may have done would be hugely appreciated, maybe the radio wires somehow are linked to the BCM/ECU? Causing the immobiliser to not be happy? I guess a fuse could of popped? I can still unlock the car with my key etc. Went off in a huff, will check fuses tomorrow.
  5. Hi everyone, not new here but I have got a new car, here are some photos, it's supercharged and it's amazing: It does mean I have to sell my old one but for now I'll enjoy seeing the two Z's next to eachother
  6. There's a lot that makes a difference, I believe the Rev9 kit you are referencing is top mount, and the Kudaka kit is a mid mount, which requires an oiling system, scavenge pump etc. Which are usually fine however more moving parts to fail, I can't say I've looked into the Kudaka kit and the spec of it. Heat will play a big part in both if you like to hoon it, so maybe up-rate the cooling system also. cheap, fast, reliable, pick two. I'm about to pull the trigger on a supercharger kit as I plan on tracking the car and don't want to forge the engine. Plus the units being standalone units appeal a lot more to me. Less to go wrong too personally.
  7. Sounds good to me, maybe @davidv10 and I could organise a little Yarmouth meet soon? With everyone from the groupchat etc.
  8. Will be interested to hear what people think about this kit after use. Commenting so I can follow
  9. Hi guys, was wondering if anyone here wanted to sort something out for after we're allowed to go out again (still social distanced of course). I am seeing an increase in amount of Z's in Norfolk which is great. (Either that or I'm getting better at seeing them)
  10. Great looking car, look forward to seeing it next year at Snet again hopefully
  11. Hi guys at the moment there is a twin turbo 350z for sale that used to be a forum owners car. Car in question (CK54 XDV): Click me Relisted (https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/nissan-350z-gt-twin-turbo-430bhp-modified-fast-drift-race-track-car-big-spec/313352138233?hash=item48f53e2df9:g:HNwAAOSwS1pfuUPE) Relisted again(https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/project-350z-gt-twin-turbo-430bhp-modified-fast-drift-race-track-car-big-spec-px/313405876415?hash=item48f87228bf:g:HNwAAOSwS1pfuUPE) Description at this time: I was interested in it, however it seemed apparent something was fishy from the get go, I tried my luck to lowball him, and he was slowly coming down in price each time, he was desperate to shift this car for some reason. The car was originally priced for 14k. The guy isn't very good at English, however not being a problem, I done some digging, when I asked if the car had cats etc as it doesn't have an MOT he said it had High Flow Cats, however on the eBay listing it says it has a full decat. Then says he wants cash and won't take bank transfer etc. I ask to view the car and he says he wants to agree on a price first, we go back and forth, the price moves a bit. I give my final offer and ask for an MOT at KwikFit to prove it's a neutral MOT and serve as a secure place where I know I won't get robbed. He refuses the MOT at Kwikfit. I do some digging and I find this, which I believe is the same car - the log book of this car kind of matches up to the listing date : Click here to view cached link Pics etc Convo of him dodging Kwikfit: Something doesn't seem right here, in my opinion. Which is a shame as it would have been a bargain. Obviously he could have had the work done, however judging by the advert it doesn't seem like he is very transparent. Obviously he could have had the work done to fix it, however surely he then wouldn't sell it a few months later? He kept telling me there was nothing wrong with the car despite never asking if there was, and more and more details keep coming to light on the advert as he updates it. If this isn't allowed please delete/move to relevant section. Thanks
  12. Thanks for the post unfortunately that’s an old post. I know the current owner was going to sell it to me however he bailed today.
  13. Bump, cash waiting for the right car.
  14. Hi, Thanks for the reply, could you send me a private message with some pictures and more information when you can, thank you.
  15. Hi everyone, Please delete if not allowed however I am planning on purchasing a boosted 350z. What is about? Thanks Alex
  16. Nice, I'm on a stand now too! I believe they are called flashcars_uk. Look out for the bumper with paint missing
  17. Hi, Anyone going who fancies a convoy down from Norwich area?
  18. Yep, we was in the same boat on Tuesday I am going to be ordering some Performance Friction pads before the next one as well as get the disks skimmed and do a fluid flush and see if that helps. Hopefully they do.
  19. Hi guys, I done a track day yesterday and I was really shocked on how the brakes held up, I am running MTEC disks (grooved and dimpled) with the stock brembo pads, after the first session the car was shaking violently under braking, I guess the stock pads aren't up to the task. I am running motul fluid and have steel braided lines so I think they are fine. The only restriction is the pads I believe? What does everyone suggest for track use and road use? I was looking at the following options: Ferodo DS2500 Hawk Performance HPS EBC Yellowstuff pads (I've heard mixed reviews) If anyone can give me their two cents on what pads to run as well as what they think of any above that would be great. Thanks
  20. Welcome, cracking car! From Norwich here Will probably see you around Suffolk as I'm there sometimes.
  21. I must save for a house... I must save for a house... GLWS, may hit you up if I decide to change my mind from FI
  22. Hi, I was looking at this and I have also discovered this. Thanks for the message, I may alert the Facebook group with my suspicions
  23. Ready to see a Z go for a crazy amount? Unsure if this was posted here already.
