What did you do with your Z today V (ON TOPIC DISCUSSION ONLY)

I think part of it is the 90/10 gas we have in Il. Hard to find no ethanol around here

We been selling a lot of the 7,000 lb models. Had one come in today as a special order. This is like the 3rd one since the first of the year. $1,100 plus taxes.

Today was a small push to the big turbo Z project!

Started the day by removing the whole front cooling system, so oil cooler and trans cooler! In addition, I will hopefully be dropping the engine tomorrow all by myself. Hopefully I can get some footage for y'all on the thread and show y'all how we do it in Miami.

Unsure of what to buy first for the project, either get turbo and or go for something else first! what yall think?

Repainted the engine cover a Gloss Apple Red that closer resembles the NISMO one. The prior color was too dark IMO

Default Track day

Took the Z to the track to get a baseline before she goes into the shop next month for the supercharger build. Something odd did happen. Showed up to the track at half tank plus one dot. The gas station across the highway where I planned to top off stopped selling premium.

So, I ran it with what I had but since I just wanted a baseline and I didnít want to burn through these set of tires, I was only going to run maybe a dozen laps or so, spread out into the next few hours since I have to alternate with my friends who had motorcycles.

At the same point of the track, the engine would sputter and die at WOT to accelerate out of the turn. Almost every single time, unless I let off the gas and basically coast through that section or feather the throttle at around 4K through this section.

I first suspected it was the yaw sensor which, stepped in a few times through out the day. I did look at the tachometer and saw that I was only at around 6.5k rpm when it cut off until eventually turning off. I wait a few seconds, start it again and itís fine for the rest of the lap. Until next lap, when I get to the same area.

The section between the two blue lines

Itís not the engine/oil temp. I wasnít running her hard enough and the hottest I got that day was just around 240 deg F. I thought it was yaw sensor but I was kinda going straight if not an ever so shallow turn trying to go WOT.

Fuel starvation at half tank or less from the constant right turn with some small dips?

Fuel starve. Hard right turn is all it takes. Some get fuel starve at 3/4 full tank.

2 fixes. The Z1 kit or phunk's CJM RRP kit, which I have. I have run the fuel gauge down to one dot and it still didn't starve with phunk's kit.

Thanks for the replies. Just ordered the Z1 Anti-Fuel Starvation kit and had it shipped to the shop for install with the new fuel pump that will go with the supercharger kit.

Make sure one that isn't on the overflow reservoir is just a cap.
