I believe the 7th wire is to help ground the automatic transmission and, as I understand it, is rather difficult to connect.

Yes, the 7th wire goes to the auto trans. Just e-mail Z-Xtreme and he'll add a 7th wire for you; that's where I got mine. The wire lengths are the same for the FX as the Z and G.

That is not a real Nismo part. They are just calling it Nismo to sell more.

Ok....just received on of Insaneanime's kit. Very nicely constructed. My observation: is it me (placebo effect) or is this thing really working? Throttle seems more responsive (like prior post) and has more "grunt" in the lower end of the tach. Someone pinch me!

Good to hear.

I just bought my 6 wire kit used from a 350Z guy and I hope to get an impression of the wires this weekend. More than anything I think it'll help out my audio.

My bro-in-law just installed a kit on his I30 and had similar impression. He also said his audio improved....though my ears are not as discriminating as his.

what in the name of automotive snake-oil is a grounding kit??

i had never heard of one before stumbling across this thread. I mean, maybe for subs - ive got 2x 1/0 gauge terminals anchored to the frame in the back for my aftermarket amps.

but a grounding kit for the engine? the engine and transmission are bolted directly to the chassis. No amount of external wiring is going to improve upon the engine's intrinsic contact with the frame.
Your car would literally need to be mostly rust to see ground bandwidth drop enough to where adding wire would help.

if your infiniti is in that kinda way - my condolences


first post here by the way. lol sorry to come out swinging
