Impressions...
Short,Phat,Grippy,Small,slower then my STi's but nice to drive, great on gas and a quality feel.
I am still amazed at how small this thing is.
Added a tint job this week, total miles 270 now. Changing out oil at 500 and sorting out some front and rear sways, prolly leave it like that till 1000 miles, then some fresh oil again, a pair of BERK high flow cats, some Takada dual intakes and a tune session, hoping to settle at 310-330 WHP and around 280 WTQ (flat).
When funds permit - some White or black rims of what sort I am undecided (open to suggestions and photoshops ), but for now, here she is.







Could not post with out my best right hand wrench man and total buddy

wow, i didn't know the 370Z was so good looking. Ever since you posted this I've been looking at them on line.

Are you driving this year round or is she a garage queen come winter?

Ah sorry it was a dumb question, didn't realize you were in Texas.

I went to Ken Garff downtown SLC today to look at a black 370Z.
They had a $5000 "region adjustment" BS markup

Since it's sunday they weren't open, but I will probably go back so I can sit in it and see if it feels cramped. Wow it was pretty.

BS is exactly what it is man, dealer hardly made anything on mine and even shipped my Color choice in, hold out if you want one... its pretty spacious for what it is, it looks soo darn small but feels bigger if that makes sense.

Did first oil change @650 miles, went out and noticbly looser, started to crank it up, got some nice rear wheel steer going, as the gas tank gets lower the rear def gets looser lol, worked on Wife for first stage of mods,,,, likely front rear Hotchkicks sways, stop tech stainless lines with Motul 600 fluid flush and possibly some cross slotted/drilled stoptech rotors.
Also contempleting a set of Berk HFC's and an AP for tuning. Looking around at cat backs, have decided to stay off the intakes and go with stock air boxes/MAFS.
On the Z forum they just completed a TT set up with GT28's and 6 psi,, yep 6 psi, and hit 500 RWHP and 380 RWT - got potential, but that set up too many $$ for me.

I would look into the oil cooler if you ever plan on tracking it. I read that oil temps get too high after a few hot laps and it goes into limp mode until it cools off.

Yes , it is a common issue, TBH though I think decent oil would help, but if I were tracking I would invest anyways, at the moment she sits around 140-180 in traffic and 200 on a good run, I am anal with my oil changes so always have good, fresh stuff in the pan.

There are some nice aftermarket coolers on the market right now, I am going to try to get one on warrenty though first. ;-)
