Ordered gen 3s and berk resonated test pipes to pair with the rice cannon, I mean Tomei…

Now I am also looking at ear plugs, lol.

Excited to hopefully be tuned and full bolt on, though.

I’ve heard wonderful things like a Tomei is twice as loud without cats. Good thing there’s a GT350 and F Type in my building. I’ll try to blend in, lol.

Just tuck that bad boi up high and toight because if you are any kind of lowered you have a high chance of flat spotting the Tomei or even gouging it.

Going to be loud as f*ck and I run Motordyne ART + Shockwave, which is loud as f*ck

Oil change

Pushed my new radiator hose on the rest of the way to stop a leak that would happen at high revs and cleaned the green mess it made in the engine bay (side tangent: whoever at Nissan named the long-life stuff " blue" was colorblind since it's teal)

Finally pulled my steering lock fuse after 5 years of owning my Z even though the previous owner had his lock replaced

Removed a melted plastic bag that got stuck between my exhaust and W-brace, which explains that burning smell...

Whatever you do, don't install the thunder pipe. Unless you want permanent hearing loss. It's loud AF with my HFCs.

I really should see if that printed test bracket will mount my dash properly so i can give my friend feedback to print the final mount. It's just too damn hot.

You'll probably have to use a combination of a heat gun and some patience. I'm by no means an expert but that's what i can think of.

Use a 3M eraser wheel to take the decal off.

Leave it in the sun on a hot summer day. Texas sun makes it easy almost any day, but in Massachusetts you might have to wait for the right day. If you use a heat gun just make sure you use it on low heat and be extremely careful not to overheat the paint and clear coat.

That 3M Eraser Wheel is extremely dangerous around paint in the hands of the inexperienced. Better to use a heat gun on low first. I wouldn't use the eraser wheel except as a last resort and keep the RPMs low and slow.

Dropped my Z off at the dealer for the first time in 4 years

Their Master Tech is checking out the airbag systems, fob antennas, and A/C system for me. He's already figured out everything lol

A/C was at about half charge. And the heater hoses near the rear RH side of the engine look

The plastic coupler is either already broken or extremely likely to break when I pull it out. The Master Tech told me the same thing happened in his G37S and recommended a metal coupler with bleeder port like this: https://conceptzperformance.com/czp-...t Bleeder Port

Airbag system is good to go and the fobs are all working again. Safelite should be covering new B-pillars as well although I'm not sure if they'll authorize the dealer to give them to me or source it themselves.

The tech also verified that I had the Stebel horn connected properly but there appears to be a problem with the horn itself. I'm going to troubleshoot and buy a new one if necessary.
