    Stillens are heavy and expensive , Invidia has a very similar set up on which one you get,
  3. blueneon added a post in a topic Stillen exaust   

    Hope you got deep pockets mate. The postage alone for Stillen is a killer. Checkout Invidia or HKS.

    Ticking sound help
    Hi guys, I've noticed a ticking/slight knocking sound coming from the engine bay over the last few months. I'm not sure if it's getting worse or if I've just started noticing it more. I had a misfire in january and the mechanic i took it to turned out to be pretty dodgy. After replacing the coils and spark plugs, the issue ended up being a broken tappet gasket cover which he "fixed". The car hasnt felt as tight or as powerful as it was before the misfire. I ended up forking out $$$ for not only the coils and sparks that i didnt need, but also de-cat pipes since my cats melted. I'm not sure if this issue is related to that or if this is something new. I've tried researching forums for days and the answers varied from broken rods/its normal/ it's a fuel pump issue/ need to fully rebuild engine.. and everything in between. No solid direction to head in. So I'm turning to you guys to hopefully get some answers. I'll post my mods in case it's relevant. Mods: Plenum spacer Jwt pop charger intake Cat back exhaust Spitfire coil pack Ngk iridium spark plugs Thank you in advance!!! Any help is very much appreciated https://youtu.be/Qh1IPaooUXQ 2003 350z track. Vq35de Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk

    Totally agree with everything you said. Were you into performance vehicles before you settled on a z?

    What's your normal voltage reading?
    In colder days, it goes up to 14.4-14.8V. Usually sits around 14.2 but shortly once the engine warms up, it drops to 13-13.2V. I currently have a dashcam with a power pack installed (even with engine off it works). Are these normal readings?
     
    The battery is only a year old with a higher CCA than stock.

  12. BEN313 added a post in a topic Bridgestone Potenza RE050A or RE003's?   

    I second that! They are suppose to be as good if not better than some of the semi slick tiers !!!! I'm yet to experience it but guys from some of the forums I've read have said so themselves...
  13. BEN313 added a post in a topic New to zclub considering a 370z   

    If you have you have deep pockets Id be getting the M3 hands down but they can cost you more than the cars worth if anything goes wrong with them based from experience, pending on which M3 [older models not the V8] the 370Z will be just as good in terms of performance and a whole lot CHEAPER to repair over the M3.. 86 is a great car but has ZERO performance, you can get every single bolt-on and a tune on the 86 and they will still be a slug!!!! if the 86 were boosted I would have bought it over the Z..
     
    The 370Z is a great car, its a poor mans sports car and its a sports car to buy if you cant afford to buy the real thing hence why I have one. If you don't plan on tracking the Z they are great cars and has reasonably good performance for the everyday guy, they have a number of challenges if you ever decide to track the car..
    They are also reasonably cheap to do up compared to an M3..
    Do your research well , its all about your expectation and use..
    Good luck!!

    Been a Bridgestone fan for years.  But just put some Michelin Sport 4's on .  I'm not going back to Bridgestone. They are loud don't grip as well .  
  16. VTR added a post in a topic Why did you decide to buy a Z?   

    Old school rear wheel drive, manual, sporting feel, good performance, good looks, great value for money, put a big smile on my face when I first drove it... still does!!
  17. big hugh ness added a post in a topic New to zclub considering a 370z   

    I owned an 86 for about one month. Great car, pretty quick, very nimble around town, great looking. Just about everything you would need, I thought.
    And then I drove a Z.
    A week later the 86 was on the market.
    Depends on what you are after I guess. That 86 was so light and that little engine was so revy. It was aching for a squirt around a track. Seems like that is what it was made to do best. The Z, to me, is like a GT, Grand Tourer. Bit of a lump to lug around, plenty of grunt, lots of lux. Every time I get in the Z I feel like I am sitting in something very special. That is what did it for me. I'd give you a run in mine but I am in cockroach country.  Good luck. You WILL love it!

    New to zclub considering a 370z
    Hi everyone
    I am new to this forum and joined in the hope that someone around my area, Warrnambool southwest Victoria, would be willing to let me have a go in their 370z so as to make up my mind as to whether i would be happy in one.
    I have been considering a newer car for some time as all could attest and have found a 370z in coburg melbourne for 21k with reasonable miles on it 121k and just wanting to drive one before i purchase the vehicle.
    Pretty sure i would love it as wanting a rwd coupe with manual transmission though coming from a auto fwd "so called sports sedan" ralliart magna mite seem a bit strange the only other vehicles i have considered are the 86/brz or an e46 m3 both i can tell come with different advantages and disadvantages. The brz/86 being not so powerful though never driven one but with great dynamics and reliability? The m3 would be a gamble in terms of reliability and cost thats why 370z seems like the one for me.
    Thoughts suggestions and anyone willing to let me drive theirs even a 350z would be nice appreciated.
    Thanks
