Only reason I took a chance on their chitty products was I wanted a better way to run the oil feed line than the frankenfitting off the oil pressure sensor port.

Pot/kettle. Maybe you need to find a mechanic that knows how to install it

475 more miles and you'll be replacing your turbo.

Ok, even though everyone told me Tomei without cats would be stupid loud, I was not ready, I thought resonated TPs would help.

No…anything above 3.5k is hearing damage, holy…

I really tried to give Tomei a shot, and still think with stock cats is bearable. Currently looking at new exhausts now…

My buddy put on an HKS yesterday and man those sound sweet.

My opinion, dual exhausts with resonators (HKS, Motordyne, ARK and all of the eBay/Amazon replicas) gave the best tone to the Z. A more "mature" sound than the single exits, especially titanium made.

I don’t disagree with that.

If it was just the rasp, I think switching to art pipes and getting the resonated y pipe would help, but the overall volume is too much.

You can’t beat that deep tone of a good true dual. Good thing is, Tomei will sell like hot cakes on the used market…

G37’s AGM was deteriorating fast. I haven’t been plugging it in for the past couple of years. The repeating short trips took a toll. Replaced with a cheap Interstate, $90 from Costco.

Wife’s Z OEM battery was getting weak. Swapped in the AGM from my Z (hardly used).

Talking to Phunk to join the Antigravity train. Skipping the pkg deal tho as I already have a lithium compatible charger.

It's funny, I dropped my car off at a detailer this morning and then later had a Facebook Memory of when I spent 7-ish (over two days) hours 8 years ago (8-10-2013) on my original 2013 Z claying and using all of the Zaino products on it...lol. This time will be a lot easier on the body but a little harder on the wallet. I'll be sure to take some pictures after I pick it up before it gets dirty again!

Crazy…so I ordered the HKS Hi Power for $1232 shipped (I think that’s a good deal) Monday morning and I’m getting it today…fastest shipping ever. Coming from Nevada to Washington State, but still. I’m getting tuned tomorrow so perfect timing. Super excited though, I’ve had to baby the Z the last few days because of how loud it is.

RIP Tomei lol

There's a guy on Facebook selling a basically brand new Hi Power for $900.00. I'm trying to buy the muffler sections off him since mine are all scratched up from the previous owner of my car having it too low.

I saw that but he’s kinda far, so i figured shipping and hassle would bring it kinda close.

Hope you can get it too.
