Default Shift knob

The next mod I did was an aftermarket shiftknob. I wanted something with a little weight to it but nothing too heavy. I ended up going with a Raceseng Stratose shift knob with Alcantara on it. I am glad I grabbed one when I did. I ordered in December and didn't receive it till the end of February (installed at around 11,800~ miles) and they are still out of stock. I love the shift knob it feels great in the hand, shifts feel smoother and I feel more confident when shifting. The quality of it is absolutely amazing and it was well worth the $200+ I paid for it. That weekend I also got new Michilen Pilot sport 4S tires (Installed at 11,800~ miles) I went with the standard 245 front 275 rear (Those took almost a month before my tire guy could get any in stock)

Default HFC Install

The next mod that was just done a few weeks ago is RHFC install (installed at 12,500~ miles). I bought mine from fast intentions at the same time I bought my Motordyne exhaust but it took a while to get them just because of the long turn around times. This mod IMHO has made the biggest difference power wise. I feel more so than my exhaust did. Maybe it's just because I have two breather mods now but the car pulls much harder and throttle response is better. I am for sure glad I went resonated because it does drone more. It's not bad at highway speeds but in some RPM ranges it can be a little annoying. I went HFC instead of test pipes just because I didn't want it too loud. I know everyone says get the ART pipes and even though I don't have to deal with emissions testing I just didn't want test pipes personal preference. I don't have pics of the RHFC but I did take a pic of my old cats (the weight saving alone on those is decent). I did take a video of it below:

Default JDM Fairlady Z Reverse Fog Light

Just finished this mod earlier today (done at 12,700~ miles). I had the light bolted in for a while now but just now got around to wiring it up. It was really easy thanks to this guide from Cbtech. I think the fog light looks sick on them and I wish Nissan just did it from the factory. They literally put everything in for it except the bulb and the switch or code for the BCM to turn it on.

Default Oil Cooler Install

Just got the oil changed and the oil cooler installed today (done at 12,738 miles). Going to test everything more tomorrow when it isn't raining but after leaving the car running for a bit I didn't see any leaks. So far so good. The cooler was a lot more annoying to install then I thought it would be. There isn't much room to tuck all the lines in all nice and neat. Especially when trying to fit an extended filter in the space. I think I did a good job with nice loose bends in the lines and no rubbing on other lines. The one thing I did different from Z1's instruction was I actually went over the power steering line bracket and under the top line (IMHO this is better than Z1's way anyway because if you do rub it's against the rubber part not the metal part of the lines less likely for metal on metal contact). No matter which way I tried to feed the lines under the spacer Z1 provides I couldn't get them to fit. There didn't seem to be any rubbing or pressure on the power steering line but I'll keep an eye on it . My Sway Bar is on back-order but hopefully I can tackle that next weekend.

Very true I put it off too long I was going to do it last year then the virus hit and things got crazy. Then I never got around to doing it since I stopped driving as much after work went online. Now that tracks are opening back up and I'm going to be going into work and driving a lot more I figured it was time to get it done.

Step 1 of the upgrade process done!

Sway bars installed, oil changed (done at 13,500~), and new under shroud

Going to add the SPL end links when I do the rest of the suspension. The main bolt was on really tight and couldn't get it off with a impact wrench or anything. Going to have to pull the whole piece it's attached to off and get some better leverage on it.
