Nice ride! And welcome to the site!

I have flirted with the idea of getting a 370z Nismo myself. Fast Intentions + Stillen = Greatness!

So was the dyno done after the Intake/Exhaust setup? Was the car tuned that day?

I am not going to dyno it until I get my long tube headers from Fast Intentions. It should get about 30-40whp over stock with full bolt ons but I'm hoping for at least 380 at the crank. Members on the370z.com have gotten about 20-30rwhp from stock to the G3's and FI Cat Back so I'm guessing its about, it definiteley pulls harder than stock. Unfortunately until a tuner unlocks the VVEL, the only thing that can be tuned is the A/F ratio. Every time someone tries to adjust the timing, the ECU kicks it back to stock along with the A/F ratio lol Stupid Nissan. It's a fun car though, it sure makes E92 M3 drivers sweat when they realise they aren't pulling ahead by much :P

WOW So much has happened to me recently after installing these! For one, I was injured on duty and apparently after my MRI, I have a herniated disc in my lower back pinching a few nerves including my sciatic nerve for my right leg. It F*CKING HURTS! Unimaginable pain. I'd give up my car for it to stop! And then after finally allowing my ECU to adjust to my new headers and really feeling how much low and mid range torque the headers gave my car, I get pulled over by this cop at a stop lght becuse he could smell the fumes due to my car running to rich. SO he thankfully gives me a fix it ticket instead of referee ticket! They say don't hate the player, hate the game; but holy f*ck! Lets hate the ass hat who made the game in first place! lol

EDIT: oh and David, if you are contemplating on getting a 370z, I would consider something else. I have had quite a few problems with my Z with the cooling issues to the crappy OEM header and air/fuel o2 sensor palcement. I'd get something else. I like my car a lot but I was looking at a 2010 Corvette Grandsport and I regret not buying it now lol

Sorry to hear your issues. I have plantar fasciitis in my right foot and sometimes it's painful to walk so I can imagine what you're experiencing is probably 10 times worse, ouch!

As for the Z... I've thought about going a bit retro and getting a 300zx as a project car and slowing fixing it up over time. Meaning it would not be my daily driver. It's either that or a 350z (HR version) but the later is far more expensive of course. I've never been a fan of Vettes. I respect them for what they are but it's just more of an "aesthetics" thing for me. To each their own there. But yeah, looks are very important to me, one reason I went with an Altima Coupe over a 350 at the time for I felt it looked better plus it having a back seat helped too.

Sorry to hear about the ticket though... So what do you think you'll do? I'm not too familiar with fix it tickets. Are you required to get it fixed or can you just pay the fine and move on? I imagine laws are different per state and Cops too.

Geez that sucks. You just musta been at the wrong place at the wrong time to get that ticket...though it is Commifornia so I know they are pretty strict about their emissions standards.

What exactly is the problem with the OEM headers or o2 sensor with cooling? I didn't quite get that part. Or is that after you added the aftermarket headers?

So here is what I meant. When we removed the stock exhaust manifolds and unscrewed the o2 sensors, the threading on the o2 sensor was MELTED! It must be too close to the engine block and must get to hot for the type of metal used for the threading. So I had to take my car to the dealership to get 2 new o2 sensors. Then they said the o2 sensors messed up the factory exhaust manifolds so I had to buy new OEM Headers! The total came out to about $2500!! Luckily I sold my aftermarket headers right away for $850 so I got 95% of my money back for them.

Wow $2500? And you're back to stock... all for nothing! I can see that musta' put a big dent into your ideas for the car. Sorry to hear of all the issues you're having lately.

Wait, if the o2 sensors caused the exhaust manifold to fail then how isn't that covered in the warranty? Or was it due to your after market exhaust setup that they wouldn't cover it?

Sorry bro been kinda busy dealing with the government giving me the run-around with my herniated disc lol Anyway, NO the sensors were not covered by the warranty. I am pretty cool with the service manager at the Nissan Dealership out here in San Diego so even he couldn't pull any strings to help me out. I dropped about $3,900 including the rental costs for a 22 year old which is f*cking rediculous apparently. So yeah, I think I am going to have Fast Intentions install Hi Flow cats on my car and leave it that way until the C7 Corvette make their debut in 2014. But to answer your question, Nissan tightened the o2 sensors passed their recommended torque specs which caused the threading to fail and basically "melt" into the threading in the OEM Headers/Cats. SO I had buy NEW OEM headers, cats, and all 4 o2 sensors plus labor at the "steal"ership. I want to put more money into my Z but for how much I put into because of this incident, I could have bought a damn supercharger already. I am a little pissed but I need to get a house bad and stop wasting money on cars until I do. taxes are getting worse in CA and I am getting raped badly and I don't want to get married or have kids so I think a house will help me out much more than making my car faster haha :P

That's a lot of money down the drain and sorry to hear about your medical stuff.

Hopefully everything works out for you.
