Yo Es. Can I borrow that for say.... 3 months? That should give me enough time to fit it in my FX and tune it! :p

LOL

Keep us well informed of the install! Are you gonna polish that thing? I always say to myself polished isn't worth it but man when you see polished superchargers its so nice! :p

INSTALLED::::

as an afterthought, i prefer it in black.... actually, i woul;dnt want it in any othr color.....


i am gonna modify a fx35 (or g35 s) cover to fit , and will have to hack about ½ of it completely off to do so....

i dont think ima use my oem silver/black cover, as it would look a bit out of place w/ the black plenum...

IMPRESSIONS (quick)::::

definate idle sound difference.... def. acceleration feel difference.... when you let off the gas, the speed doesnt 'suck' back down (with exhaust note as well) anymore... it seems to open up BIGTOME at 3300rpm, BUT, my motor only has 706 miles on it........


that reminds me...... mu motor feels REALLY tight still.... when i drive a loaner sedan, the motor seems to revv up 'free-er' or morve roundedly than mine... im feeling that mine is more linear instead..... i am guessing its still under break-in...

thoughts and comments please.............

update:::

i am scheduled to have the blower install comence on wednesday, may 19, 2004 at 8:30am......

right now, im scrambling to get all the parts together, that i think i'll need . this weekend i ordered the nismo LT thermo & samco hosekit.....

i am in DESPERATE need of a dual gauge pod (or gauge cups??) and requisite fitments to make em work..... i have decided (for now) to go with boost pressure (lbs) and fuels pressure(lbs) as i have yet to be persuaded that the EGT or Wideband guage is better for the FI VQ setup.........

also, i need toget a set of plugs, ONE step (dgeree?) cooler than oem..... i have the oem p/n, (ngk-r plfr5a-11) but am not sure if i wanna get a plat. or irridium tippd plug.....

either way, i need this done asap......

any help, as usual, is welcomed..

sms

ps- wish'd i still had the Z-tube for the moment, as the crawford really echoes the intake sound nicely...... (ntm, changes the exhaust decel sound considerably......)

car went into the shop (aka the dealership) today, an we had a meeting for about 30 mins....

discussed many aspects of the install, including the additioanl upgrades i have planned to install along with the blower...

to summarize::

-vortech v-2 in satin finish (FMIC w/ filtered BOV), split second ecu
-nismo LT thermo
-samco hi-press coolant hoses
-engine ice
-autometer 'phantom' series gauges
-mech boost, mech fuel press, elec. a/f ratio
-temporary APC universal "a" pillar gauge pod (waiting on lotek deal)
-crawford hi-flow cats w/ 3rd o² bung inline
-fujitsubo exhaust & dualie Y pipe
-NGK-r plugs (plfr6a-11) 1 step cooler, to be gapped at 0.030


and thas about it, for now

:^)

-eS

ps- the crawford cats are backordered by about two weeks, so i am on 'the list' again...... i plan to get his headers also, but wanna run in the setup without them first (measurable gains for sure, i hope)

-back to my loaner car..... (perk of having the infiniti dealer do the work)

I have received my CATs already. They are extremely high quality. the flanges are perfectly flat and everything is very clean and professional looking.

They are going on Saturday, I'll post pictures!

dino- what other mods do you have? I was considering the cats, but didn't really want to mess with the rest of the exhaust. If your exhaust is stock, I'm very interested in hearing what you think of the cats by themselves.

I'm installing the NISMO exhaust at the same time. Supposedly, the craford cats are not too loud. I will use my video camera to sample audio before and after. Are you concerned about sound, or just performance benefits from a CAT-only mod?
