It all just feels so different.
Clutch engagement is a little different, car sounds a little different, it's just...different, in a good way. I don't know how to describe it.
Nice work all around! Although, the correct term is "better"

Add an RJM clutch pedal and you're really start to understand the meaning of "different" (i.e. better)

Entertainment Item #1: Seeing the valet guy pull it up to the front of the hotel where it had been parked for a couple of days.

Entertainment Item #2: Watching the valet guy struggle with the fob to try to figure out how to pop the trunk while my arms were full. (I really do dislike this about the Z, but I suddenly discovered that it can be a source of entertainment.)

Entertainment Item #3: On the drive home watching a shiny red BMW pass me at 100+ on the Interstate; 10 minutes later, seeing long blond hair waving in the breeze through the opened driver side window of the BMW as the cop was walking back to his vehicle with DL in hand. (I usually don't find much enjoyment in people getting speeding tickets, but this one just happened to catch me in the right mood. Boredom of the interstate probably had something to do with it.)

Been on vacation all week (stay-cation), but have taken every chance to take the car out for a romp.
5 mile trip to the grocery usually turns into about 30.

10 years and I still love this car. I've thought about buying a replacement, but I just can't do it.

Spent Sunday afternoon cruising the mostly empty farm roads in Columbia County in the Hudson Valley.

72,000+ miles, all stock, no CSC failure yet (or any other failure for that matter).

I still love this car as much as I did the day I got her!


( Click to show/hide )
These photos were taken in the exact same spot one week before while stopped for a stretch while cruising with my buddy and his RX-8.


A partial view where we stopped

Had the oil and filter warning message on the left. Panic thinking of wtf i literally. Like literally filled up and checked oil levels. Plus im 3/5kkm in since last change.

Oh so incase you didnt know on the tech version. You have 2 back up screens. 2 oil warning resets. 2 filter resets, 2 deactive tire resets and also 2 misc resets.

So of a Bush

Drove it to and from work today. As a reward, gave her a nice bubble bath tonight. She is tucked in now for the night.

Went to my local muffler shop and had them do a muffler delete on my 17 Nismo.
It took them like 30 minutes and they even coated them with high temp black paint.

Very happy with it, especially for $100. I'll post a video and pics later.

Impressions: Everything is stock besides the muffler delete. Sound: It sounds really good at low RPM's, pretty deep. It's a lot louder than the factory HKS Nismo muffler but it does have a little bit of rasp. Don't mind it at all, since I like loud exhausts and well, I didn't buy a luxury car

Also installed an affordable Alpine android auto double din.

As some of you know my 2017 Nismo is automatic.
I wanted a fun summer weather daily which includes a 2 hr commute in Chicago traffic and I have 2 other manual cars.

Anyways, today I did the shift boot mod. The factory automatic gear selector looks so out of place and straight out of an Altima.

Found a cheap $9.50 boot on Amazon with matching Nismo suade and red stitching. Threw it on in 5 minutes. The quality of the boot seems to be closer to a $40 one lol.
