whyyy so sexxyyy?

what kind of filters do you have on the stacks? is it a foam or paper or mesh? Notice any difference with them on/off? sound/power wise

Who's doing your tuning?

The filters are foam based, Weber distributes them I think. With it off the sound didn't change much, I'm sure the performance gain is there but I'm extremely paranoid about 6 vacuum holes sucking in something right into the motor... never actually drove without the filters :)

I'm not too sure on the tuning yet, I'm trying to find a reputable dyno tune at the moment so I can see the before/after charts, as well as the a/f.

Thanks for the props!

Youtube is blocked at my work now :x . I'm not the one to blame either. I'll check the vid out when I get home. Take lots of pics of WCN. :tu: I love seeing the updates. You need to cruise by my house with your car sometime and wake up my boring neighbors. :tu:

Bah too bad you won't make it, there's always room in my car if you want to tag along.

I got carried away from the vid, but I meant to update with the plumbing restoration, hooked up heater core hoses and bled the system today, everything seems good, no leaks, cabin heat is toasty.

First autocross since the triple carbs install, definitely made exits out of corners lot more fun. Even a slight hill toe tap to the gas pedal gives throttle a measurable push.

http://youtu.be/KptdM9rVitY?hd=1


2 events ago my battery tie down snapped, and the battery itself took a suicide dive against the valve covers frying/melting off the terminal and cutting off all power (obviously) mid turn. I replaced the terminal, but just the side that melted.

I guess I should've replaced both at the time, this past event on Sunday the other side terminal clamp decided to break completely in half, but fortunately after I was done with the lap and coasting to the wait line - weird timing, like it's doing it to me on purpose :)

Been a while...so, new shoes!

3 piece road race spec, still 15x10 but more 'conservative' offset, flatter disc face gives it a LOT more lip. Not to mention it weighs only ~14lbs unsprung vs 23lbs previous

Crappy cell pics, better pics will come soon, so excited for JCCS next month!!!

^haha, as much as I want to blame it on the car, I'm sure my habit of jerry-rigging had lot to do with it :)

Although this past weekend while redoing the whole fuel plumbing, somehow I hit my head on the inner corner of the hood and took a chunk out of my scalp... bled out pretty good.

Thanks! The brushed aluminum / machined finish on the barrel is hard to capture with my point and shoot cam... they look pretty classy in person. I'll have some detailed pictures coming soon.

Already sold em :( They served me well and would've preferred to keep them as track spares, but I'm in the hole for next 3 months thanks to the new wheels and need to recoop some of the cost! They went to a local Z buddy with a l28et 260z.

^Thanks! I feel ya on wanting to stay in, the 100 degrees weather didn't help either. Some of us were really unprepared for the heat, I had forgotten my lawn chairs and etc... next year we vowed to bring a canopy the size of a warehouse.

She took the 200 mile round trip like a champ, averaged about 22mpg and no real problems. The extreme heat made one of the window trims pop out (incredibly annoying until you pop it back in), and the top of the rear hatch seal became detached. Slight pinging under load on the way back.. but probably just due to the temp.

I just had a friend/photographer scheduled for early October for a set of decent pictures, my buddy Tim from timscribbles.com. Hoping to have some detailed shots of the new wheels by then. It's a habit developed over the years.. semi professional shoots taken annually. I figured it's a good way to keep track of mods, progress, insurance purposes, and so on.

Some highlights of the z from the show, pics of the entire show here: http://photobucket.com/jccs2012edit

Most unexpected surprise of the year lol
