Once the new transmission was installed the timing went back where it should be and gaining about 30+whp in the top end.

This second flex plate didnt survived 5000kms as I pulled the 7AT to swap in a 6MT.

In my opinion the first mod on the 7AT should be the flexplate ! then an oil cooler if doing agressive track days.


edit :
the picture from 2011 on the dyno fully tuned but with a cracked flywheel. we had no control and spend nearly a complete year to figure out what was going on ,, almost traded the Z for an EVO X.

Good Imfo: i was wondering what the symptoms would be,,,been so long since i had to replace a flexplate.
Deffinitely no loss of power or ck. engine lights.
