RJM Clutch Pedal V3.3 installed by the shop. All adjustments are currently stock.

Here are some more pictures of the recent work done to the Z!


First picture of the Likewise "Daytona Pro" 600g shift knob.


Second picture of the shift knob, with the "Likewise" engraving on top.


The RJM Clutch Pedal V3.3 assembly, installed by Kevin at Austin Z Clinic. He does the work when I can't.


Everything removed or replaced in the last week! No more rod prop for the hood, clear plastic crap for the start/stop button, OEM shift knob, or OEM clutch pedal assembly.

Thank you guys for tuning in! This Saturday we have the CF Powertrix Mine's Style Spoiler being delivered, which I will be installing. In the next three to four weeks, the F.I 34 Row Oiler Cooler will be shipped and installed.

Installed the CF Powertrix Mine's Style Spoiler Add-on today. Huge shoutout to Loges for submitting a picture to the Powertrix Spoiler Add-on thread of how he installed it on his Z without using clamps. I used the exact same method.

- 3 Tow Straps
- PVC Insulation (or a pool noodle, like Loges)

Going to let this sit overnight. Here are a couple of pictures of the install!


Booty shot of the install.


Another shot.


Side-view of the install.


The adhesive solution used to bind the OEM spoiler with the add-on. JB Weld cause I don't want it going anywhere

Up next is the oil cooler!

Back in late March, maybe early April, my oil plug came loose and I dumped about 5qts of oil through my neighborhood--I didn't pull over and cut the engine until I saw smoke and smelled something foul. The oil continued to drop even after I pulled the car over, so I knew it wasnt running completely dry when I turned it off. No oil pressure light either.

JAR recommended sending in an oil sample to Blackstone Labs.

They were very informative with the report, and made some remarks about the situation I encountered. Really puts my mind at ease, but I will be submitting the next oil change sample as well just as a "check up." Below are the results.

NOTE: My odometer read 81,000mi NOT 8,000mi like they documented--must have misread my handwriting, or I could have accidentally left out the "1." None the matter, I dont think that made too much of an impact on their assessment. I'll make sure its correct next sample.

Roughing the surface up with 600 grit and then using panel bond would likely work better... but I think you have it covered with JB weld. Enjoying the progress so far.

Honestly, I was just really excited to get it on and I knew JB Weld would do the job--I think distributing pressure with the tow straps and insulation helped a lot too. I'm still giving it a little quality check each time I take it out to make sure it doesn't intend on going anywhere Really appreciate your support

Hotckis front sway bar installed today. Took it for a rip on a nice, windy road here in Waco and WOW Could tell a huge difference right away. The cornering ability is tenfold, feels like butter on entry and exit. Driver confidence has shot thru the roof. Excited to do more

Side note: forgot to update the thread when my Fast Intentions 34-Row Oil Cooler was installed. Got it done at Austin Z clinic and Kevin did a magnificent job with it. Loving the lower temperatures in the Texas heat. No matter how hard the car gets pushed, I've never seen the temps rise above ~225F. Whereas without the cooler I was seeing temps up near or even past ~250F. Great investment as prep for Baylor Driving Club's AutoX competitions.
