    Night and day between the two and in a good way. Where the stock sounds like a asthmatic broken lawn mower the Invidia has a nice rumble to it low down and opens up to a pleasant scream above 3500 - 4000 rpm. Titanium tips sit a little proud and are a bit gaudy but suit the style of the car so i dont mind. Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk

    That's right, keen to do something like that. Still not sure about the HFC's though-some thread comments below:  
    Having had a Stillen CBE on its own and a Stillen + HFCs, I’d say a Stillen with stock cats would be a good option for a roadster”
    -To be honest though the stillen doesn’t need the hfc, especially with the roadster
    -If you dont want constant loud humming or a loud exhaust in general, then stay away from the hfcs. There is a thread where some guys returned them to stock and couldnt be happier. They said the hfc just made the cabin that much more noisy and annoying.
     
    Did you put the Invidia on after you bought your car? Happy with the improvement compared to stock?
    Cheers,

    Yeah I remember seeing it for sale on autotrader and thinking it looked like it's been well cared for.

    Yep, drove it up on the car ferry

    Sounds good. I also saw that you were enquiring about an CBE and HFC set up. Would like to hear that once its installed if possible as i currently have an Invidia CBE and am considering the HFCs. Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk

    Thanks Harry. I have seen a few Zeds getting around town. I might put the call out some time to see if many are interested in going for run somewhere, look as far as central coast, Hunter, possibly northern Syd etc. I was in the Syd Z car club some time ago, with my 260 and its pretty cool having a dozen or more Zeds traveling along in convey. It would not be until next year though as it's all starting to get busy this time of year.
    Cheers,
    Rodd

    Hi Rodd, Im in Newcastle and congrats on the purchase. I havent met many other Zed owners on this forum from Newie. You are in the right place if you want to learn more about the Zed as i have found being pretty much a novice. Cheers Harry Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk

    Hi Elvis, I know your post was from last year but did you ever settle on a CBE? I just bought a roadster and looking at doing something very similar shortly.

    Hi from Newcastle
    Just bought a 2012 370Z red roadster, via a long road trip from the Whitsundays.  Just love the car the more I drive it. I have always loved Zeds, ever since I was a kid playing soccer and my coach bought a 260Z and took me for drive to game one Sat morning.  I also owned 260Z for about 12 years which I thoroughly restored.  No mods or anything else done etc my new plates. Keen on a new exhaust at some stage. I  Joined the Z club to learn more about the car, share stories etc and hopefully do the odd weekend drive with fellow members. Are there many Newcastle Zed owners out there…..
    Cheers,
    Rodd

    Thanks Bry I can't take credit though, previous owner put them on, one of the main reasons I bought this particular example!

    How to replace stupid broken cup holder on 03 350Z
    Hi Blokes,
    I've been putting off replacing my cup holder for a while now after it became jammed in the dashboard. After heaps of googling and checking and rechecking photos, I've just finished the job and thought some of you might find this guide handy.
    Parts and tools required:
    Philips head screwdriver
    10mm socket
    Replacement cup holder (including metal frame/carrier if required, I found it easier to buy the whole thing)
    If your cup holder is jammed fully in the dash panel, you can slip a credit card or a thin (soft plastic) pry bar in there to pop it out slightly. If you can get it out enough, there's a long slot at the top/rear of the plastic cup holder insert that you can insert a screwdriver into, depress the tab and pop the entire insert out. You'll find 90% of the time that the reason it's jammed is because of a malfunctioning spring right at the back which is inaccessible unless you can remove the insert. If you can't get it to come out enough, keep reading and I will explain how to remove it.
     Looking up from underneath the front of the cup holder, you will see a philips head screw holding on the fascia/cover plate. Once you've popped that off it should look something like this:

    Now comes the painful part. Just inside the cavity at the top is a 10mm bolt that needs to come out, but the cup holder insert is in the way (or was in my case). If you can see the bolt and gain access to it, then go ahead and undo it. Otherwise you will have to force the plastic cup holder insert out towards you, which will probably break the insert. If you're lucky like I was, it might pop out intact with a bit of force. The only other resort is to break enough of the plastic insert until you can see this 10mm bolt:

    Once you've undone that bolt, move down to the passenger scuff panel along the door frame and pull it out firmly but carefully, starting at the main clip at the front end and working your way half way along it (no need to remove the whole thing unless you want to):

    Once that's loosened/off then you can start removing the kick panel in the passenger footwell. Right at the back of the footwell there is a plastic screw that undoes by hand (mine was missing) that needs to be removed. After that you need to gently work your way towards the front of the panel, pulling outwards carefully with firm pressure to pop it out of its clips. Be careful because the edges of this panel can be SHARP. You can see the holes for the clips once the panel is removed:

    Just above the kick panel is the last screw holding the lower dash panel on, the black one pictured here:

    Remove that and GENTLY begin pulling the whole dash panel towards yourself, starting at the area closest to the cup holder. There's one clip holding the panel at the bottom (below the cup holder) and a series of clips at the top. Once you've popped a few of them the panel should drop away like this:

    You can see a few of the clips along the top of the panel.Remove the whole panel and on the reverse, you will see the cup holder frame is attached to the inside of the panel with 2 black screws, one is shown here and the other is on the reverse side:

    From here it's just a matter of swapping over the old frame/insert with the new one, reclipping the panel to the dashboard and bolting/clipping/screwing it all back in in reverse order.

    Hopefully this one will last a little longer, it's a different design to the one that was in the car (which had also been replaced previously). You can see the difference in the inserts here (note the new cup holder is in the carrier frame and the old one isn't):

    Hope this helps anyone looking to do the same, I put the job off for ages cos it looked like a pain but it wasn't really that difficult in the end. All up it should take around an hour or less if you know what you're doing.

    Advice for Fuel Injector Cleaners
    Hey all. New to the Z family and this forums. Just got my Z recently serviced and Nissan gave me this fuel injector cleaner performance plus bottle that I'm supposed to put in the tank in the next fill up. The directions on the bottle isn't 100% clear and it's 250ml. What's the proper usage for these and how much do I put in the tank before refuel? How often should it be done? eg every 2.5ks or per oil change or every service etc? And does it help much if at all? What other brands would you guys recommend that are better than the one nissan gives?
     
    Many thx in advance for all your helpful replies! I have no regrets with my fairlady. It's been a dream since day 1

  23. dodgybugga added a post in a topic New Speedo   

    A Navdy might be an option for you if you want more accurate and readable Speedo that may look a little better and provide heaps more functionality (total control of audio streaming and email/txt messages from phone and GPS with traffic data from a jog dial mounted on the steering wheel so you don’t have to touch your phone at all). It also takes the feed direct from OBDII port so gives a more accurate speed. The company went silent all of a sudden (I suspect that one of the car manufacturers bought them out and took the technology and shut them down overnight) but there is a community on Reddit that have hacked the app (iOS and Android) and device firmware to keep its functionality at 100%. Just another possible option. Plenty on the web and YouTube about them and can snap them up on eBay for about $200 these days. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  24. Bry added a post in a topic Clutch secondary cylinder failure   

    Common fault that affects all year 370z’s and hr 350’s.  General consensus is the stock slave cylinder is crap and is highly recommended to fit an uprated item (z1 motorsports or conceptz performance sell them). Stock item can last 1000km or 100000km it’s very random but when they do fail it is recommended to replace the master cylinder as well as the slave cylinder and to use brake /clutch fluid that Nissan put in the Gtr.
