  1. Dindar the Grey added a post in a topic VQ35HR Light throttle hesitation   

    I had some success with the plug change but the problem wasnt fully cured until I had the Osiris tune. I have since had the car retuned for a different set up (stock ! ) and there is no hint of the light throttle hesitation under any driving condition.

    Check your end links are tight. Mine were tightened initially with weight on.
    A horrible clunking ensued so i double checked tightness again with weight on.
    No difference.
    Lifted the car, weight off the wheels and the top of the links were obviously loose. Tightened them to spec, with weight off, no more clunking.

    Tazzin' around Tassie
    I am on hols, touring Tassie ( in a rental ) and have driven all around Hobart, up the coast to Launceston and so far over to Devonport and surrounds.
    In 1200kms I have only seen one Zed ! A 350, same colour, Carbon Silver with black wheels, as mine back in Perth.
    Where are all the Tassie Zeds ??

    Make sure you get the stock airboxes so you can swap to stock when you tire of the pods.
  5. Dindar the Grey added a post in a topic Empire performance exhaust   

    I like experimenting and evaluating. I certainly wouldn't cut up a $3000 set of similarly sized, similarly polished pipes.
  6. Dindar the Grey added a post in a topic Empire performance exhaust   

    I bought one of these a while back and fitted it to my 07 HR.  Fitting required a clearance dent on the rhs intermediate pipe for the rear stabiliser and some material ground off the rear flange of the same pipe for diff clearance. The car 'feels' more torquey in the mid range but we all know we are easily foxed by the aural sensations....performance testing at the drag strip revealed absolutely no difference in my E.T.s.
    The car sounds really nice and crisp from 2500rpm up to a wailing crescendo at high revs.
    Below 2500 the sound is diabolical...low frequency vibrations rattle the interior trim and the drone totally unacceptable.  I removed the system after three weeks.
    Recently I refitted the system except for the mufflers and am experimenting with a modified ( dual inlet, re routed baffles ) stock muffler.
  7. Dindar the Grey added a post in a topic anyone know of any aftermarket front licence plate holder?   

    I removed the brick and inserted screws into the existing holes

    My throttle bodies were spotless, the car is automatic and a plug change and injector clean solved the problem.
  9. Dindar the Grey added a post in a topic VQ35HR Light throttle hesitation   

    Mine had new plugs and a chemical injector clean. My car never misfired until I had maybe 85k on the clock.
  10. Dindar the Grey added a post in a topic VQ35HR Light throttle hesitation   

    I am convinced it was the plugs in my case. Though it does cost around $400 just for the plugs and gaskets.
  11. Dindar the Grey added a post in a topic Intake choice?   

    After experimenting with a number of intake variations I have come back to stock filter boxes. K & N drop ins and the alloy post MAF tubes from a pod system. I have tested each set up at the drag strip, on occasion, 3 set ups on the same day, and have not identified any quantifiable gains over the stock set up.
    Having said that, I have never tried a Stillen CAI.
     
    I would be interested to see some actual proof of real gains. (preferably not from a manufacturer )
  12. Dindar the Grey added a post in a topic VQ35HR Light throttle hesitation   

    I had it serviced at Total
  13. Dindar the Grey added a post in a topic VQ35HR Light throttle hesitation   

    Ok,  I had my 100k service ($870 ! ) , MAF sensors were spotless, diagnostic showed no problem.  Changed plugs which entails removal of the inlet manifold, so new inlet gaskets, injectors cleaned. Drove 20 k's home in traffic partly.  Tested low throttle take off 10 times. So far no hesitation or misfire.
     
    Note; the spark plugs were 100k's old and I have experienced misfires occasionally on the drag strip.  Maybe 100k as recommended by Nissan is too long between plug changes ? 
  14. Dindar the Grey added a post in a topic VQ35HR Light throttle hesitation   

    I have tried the ECU reset to no avail.
    My car is having its 100k service tomorrow ( includes new plugs and I have requested a diagnostic to trace the problem ).
     
    I will report back later.

    My 07 HR does exactly the same thing. I have drop in K& N's and dual exhaust but it has done this with or without any mods.
