i did the grounding cables earlier this week and the intake and pop charger tonight. reset the ecu and took it out for a spin. the sound was awesome.. but the car kept bogging down and acting like it wanted to stall. i thought maybe that was a side affect of the ecu reset, so i drove it around a bit and then came back home. it was still doing it, so i ripped the pop charger out and started removing the intake when i noticed the vacuum line was kinked from being twisted a tad too far. made that better, put it all back together, reset the ecu, fired it up and went for a spin.

all i have to say is HOLY @$@# it is much peppier and the sound is GREAT. looking at dyno's for other people that have done these mods, it looks like it should be 12 hp 12 torque or so. above 3500-4000 rpm's you get a nice rumble from the intake/pop charger. even when drastically over the speed limit... not that i would ever do that... O:-)

woo. so that is.. phase 1 i guess. we shall see if/when i do more.

Riiiight. Like you wouldn't push it to 3500 and over. (I would!)

So how much total torque/hp do you have now? And what type of car?

hey, i'm new at livejournals and i noticed that we have the option to download a client for our journals, although i dont really know what a 'client' is, it seems to be a good thing to have one. i went to download one, and it took me to your journal, saying there would be instructions on how to get one, but i cant seem to find out how... a little help?


hey, nice car.

hehe. yes, there is a little mini-complex of them across from my house.

i'm glad you like the car. this is the first time i have posted pics of it to anyone... mainly because i don't like people judging me for material possessions. but hey, people asked and i was talking about it.. so might as well post it.

woah, very nice. Im a big fan of the 350Z, but that is a very good looking vehicle. if im not mistaken, there is a twin turbo kit fom rgreddy. that would alwasy make a nice phase II.

the 350z is a nice car, but the g35 beats it hands down in everything but pure performance... and even there it is only a few hp seperating the 2.

the interior in the g is so much nicer than the z.

as for the tt setup, i don't think i will do any fi mods.. no reason to really. who really needs more than 300HP in their dailydriver?

Don't know how I ended up on your journal, but I took a look at the pic of your old car (how funny, it looks really new to me:) and saw that cold white stuff, I think they call it snow? I'm not sure, down here in the great Las Vegas area, we don't get any. Nice to see it still exists though.
