DB Nissan 350z GT 05'

Been looking at this myself. Was it a big job to fit ? Did you follow a guide ??

Did it all from up top, but ideally it needs to be done from underneath with the undertray off mainly for the tensioner adjusters. Takes an hour on the drive, I've shot a video that I'll hash together at some point. I still have a dual mass flywheel, which will help absorb the rotational harmonics. 

 

Engine cover off

Slacken both tensioners 14mm

Undertray off

Slacken both tensioner adjusters 12mm

Remove both aux belts

Put the box in 6th, hand brake on, wedge the brake pedal down, crack the 19mm crank pulley bolt loose and remove. 

Wobble the crank pulley loose. 

Fit the new sexy lightweight pulley *little bit of anti seize grease

Tighten the 19mm which will bring the pulley down square. 

Torque to spec, 30lb-ft then 60° *I did 160mn

Refit aux belts

Rotate pulley by hand to check belt alignment and check for binding.

Refit undertray and engine cover.

 

2/5 difficulty

Cheers for the feedback bud!  :thumbs:

 

That's very interesting, I'm all for finer tuning to make the car run as sweeet as possible!

You have the DE engine as well right? I'm wondering if the upgrade is possible on the revup too - cant see why not?! :snack:

 

Do you have a link for where you grabbed it from?

Yes fella 05 DE, I bought mine new from a member some years back on the forum. Link below to the same one showing for 03-06 350z, I've also made a short video of the install. 

 

Would recommend to any DE owner, marked difference to the engine pick up.

Popping over to Caffeine and Machine tomorrow evening, so had a good excuse for a quick wash and wax. Also to try out my new stubby lance, lovely addition and way more control over the jet.

Not heard of this exhaust before - even googling now i can't find it? Seems a very sensible choice with the big oval centre box... I know this from personal experience of perforated eardrums :lol:

I very much doubt they've ever built an exhaust for a 350z other than mine, normally make stuff like this :notworthy:

 

Sound clips don't do it justice at all, sounds amazing!!

Ahh - didn't fully engage my focus on the 'custom' bit. Wise choice of design IMO as I said - very easy to make a Z un-liveable noise wise, as I discovered and have now drawn back from.
