Not sure what your insurance covers but my policy includes up to 30 days of rental car in the event my car is inoperable due to accident or theft. Might want to look into what you're covered for.
Yeah that's the prudent thing. Thanks for the calming words. Neighbor has 4 cars for two drivers and he's letting me borrow one. So I'm covered there.

Four G owners helped to install test pipes, Y pipe, and belts on a friend's G35! Funday Sunday in Atlanta!

So I decided not to pull the spark plugs because I was lazy and I don't have a lot of tools so I wasn't up for it. But today, I start the car and drive a 35 minute commute to my go to shop and the cel didn't turn on once. This is so aggravating

So the mechanic scanned the ecu and found a misfire on cylinder 5. So, I'm going to go ahead and replace all spark plugs. What's interesting is the spark plug hole or socket that it goes into has no signs of oil at all. Maybe my valve cover gasket isn't so terrible after all...

Blacked out the muffler on my exhaust. Just too...ricey otherwise.





Wheels are staying much cleaner with the ceramic pads, this is after a week.

Good time to replace the coils, or at the very least the #5. Since your prolem is intermittent I would suspect the coil pack and not the spark plug. The heat makes them brittle over time and they can develop faulty internal contacts as a result.

Hotchkis anti-roll bars are in. Too hard to get a good shot of the front one. Set up hard in front, medium in back per g35.com suggestions. Lower speed lane changes are quicker and flatter, even more noticeable at freeway speeds. So far so good.

I have the same Tanabe exhaust and was debating doing the same for the same reasons lol. Looks good, I am looking at burning the tip blue.

Probably going to replace the resonator with a larger one, a bit too loud at part throttle for me. Idle, start-up and full throttle are great, reasonably quiet at freeway speeds, but want to take the edge off it in the in between spot of putting around and getting on it all the way.

A quick shot of her after the 350z suspension install even though she's dirty. I was going to detail her today but it's raining -_-

Drove my car to our local DNE/DIE (Dallas Nissan/Infiniti Enthusiasts) meet. Good group of people. No one does stupid crap like burnouts when they leave.

Yes that sub 3k is killer lol I've been looking at Magnaflow 2 to 1 resonator. I have a 2 to 2 on my Camaro and love it. I heard that a 24 inch long Resonator work great also. Look what I did today lol. Copied you and blacked out the Tanabe muffler lol. Also since they don't make eyelashes for the 04 sedan I painted my own small one. Thinking about making them wider.
