- Z1 34-row oil cooler and new Nismo magnetic drain plug (+5hp)
- Motul Eco-nergy
- Brake fluid flush with Motul 5.1
- Clutch fluid flush with Motul 5.1
- Rear axle click fixed with Kawasaki nut
- New 02 sensors

Love that I no longer hear the clicking (more like a bang at times) and the oil cooler works like a charm. Plenty of redline work at speed and barely hit 200 degrees, sitting at 180 most of the time. Also, I may be nuts and having the placebo effect but I feel more planted at launch (any speed) now that the rear axle nuts have been replaced.

And if you haven’t picked up a Power Bleeder, what the hell are you waiting for? Makes the brake flush a breeze.

Still on the list:
- Torque Solutions poly trans mount
- OEM spark plugs
- Differential bushing replacement with Z1 poly
- GkTech differential brace

He pulled the windshield off and confirmed that the seal was questionable and made a note of the windshield leak. The B-pillar tabs broke so I'll get some new ones, and several of the A-pillar clips broke but I didn't have enough replacements on hand and need two more. And I need to figure out how to approach Safelite regarding the water damage to the airbag system and remote antenna(s).

Good stuff. I would go with Whitelines diff bushing kit over Z1s, but that's just me. Take a look into both if you have not already.

Also, finally got my car back on insurance on Sunday. Went for a drive to the lake as per my custom/tradition. Saw some kids enjoying the car respectfully and smiling which made my day.

Today - Took it to my mechanic, got a transmission fluid drain and refill, it's been four years already, where does the time go?

LOL, I went from Whiteline to Z1. Whiteline could not handle track abuse. I am not totally a fan as I had their front end links and one of them failed when I went off track. I know they are not made for off reading LMAO!

That's unfortunate to hear. I haven't heard anyone else have that issue with the Whiteline diff bushing, glad you found the Z1 bushing more suitable.

I decided to go with Whiteline because of this: https://www.myg37.com/forums/drivetr...he-rescue.html . That is some serious customer service and I stand by companies that do this.

Z1 is slowly loosing sway with me. Buddy of mine ordered their oil cooler set, the fittings and hoses were leaking after instillation and everything was done per the instructions. Z1 was notified and they made him pay for new hoses and the shipping, like wtf? On top of that they have that annoying duty b.s. The need to include that crap in their prices. Defect was on Z1's part and they could not own up to it, sad.

As for SPL, that's some good shieeeeeettttt. Pricey though.

B pillar tabs arent replaceable they're integral to the pillar. Call safelite and theyll buy and deliver new ones

Yes. Sorry that wasn't clear. Replacement B-pillars. And replacement A-pillar clips. Trying to get someone to answer the phone at Safelite is the problem.

Last weekend I installed a set of used Stillen Gen 3 CAI. I also turned in the Tacoma after 10 years and got a 2nd Gen Tundra in 12Ē lift with 38ís.

Nice! I just picked up the Tundra today. It’s got a 12” Bulletproof lift with Toyo Open Country MT’s. The Taco was a manual and I wanted auto and a full size.

I have the 35" Toyo MT's on my Power Wagon. I'm on my 3rd set. Want to go to the 37" MT's. But need to trim the front of the rear fender wells. Fully flexed. The tires would hit that part.
