There is an adhesive foam pad on the underside of the module, so it should be ok. If anyone still has the install instructions for the coupe I'd appreciate it. I was all over this site, FA, infiniti-techinfo.com, and the closest I could get were the instructions for an '06 sedan.

That's exactly what the Dodge Challenger Hellcat Redeye does, during the launch control sequence AC cooling is redirected to a cooling plate in the intake and when you launch it turns the AC off. Pretty awesome system.

Those BASTARDS!!! They stole my idea!!!

But Ive also always wondered if it would make any noticeable power increase if u dumped a bunch of dry ice into the intake box. I wish someone would dyno it with results.

Dry ice is solid carbon dioxide, and reduces the amount of oxygen in the air as it transitions to gas, so dumping it in the intake box would reduce potential for spark no?
Maybe passing air over dry ice contained in a vented (to prevent making a bomb) metal container? I have seen diy/redneck camping air conditioning like this.

Update - my APP sensor was indeed bad. Was in a heat-induced troubleshooting spiral and then a friend stopped in. I stole the pedal from her car while she wasn't looking and did some resets and everything went back to normal. Ordered a new oem pedal assembly and should be back on the road tomorrow. It does burn a bit to have to buy a whole new assembly when the sensor would be easy to replace....

Bummer you ordered it already, the switch CAN be replaced without swapping the entire pedal assembly.

Here's an example.

Thx cleric. I have been driving a soulless Hyundai all week and feel like my life force is being drained...or else I would order one and send the assembly back.

G35 sedan w/ too much money in mods
Uninstalled the MD 5/16" spacer and all associated hardware, cleaned it up and shipped it to nasch007. It used to be sadness when I sent off another part of Amanda but now it's more relief than sorrow. I like the fact that parts of her will soldier on and not just die a slow death in a salvage yard.


I also called Progressive to check on a claim I had to make 2 weeks ago today on my beloved Peyton: 2006 GTO, purchased 3.5 years ago with 27K miles, LS2, Tremec M6 and 99% stock as it sits today. It is 1 of only 101 ever made exactly like it. It was flooded here in our neighborhood with water up to the top of the tires and it's almost assuredly going to be deemed a total loss. Front floorboard was dry but the rear floorboard was soaking wet, we visually verified in my driveway that the air filter, intake tube to the throttle body and the TB itself all were wet with water. Got it home 2 blocks with the motor running a little rough and a light clicking noise when I shut it off. Waited an hour for the rain to subside, went out to start the motor and let it run for a while to dry out the engine compartment and FML it had an extremely loud rod knocking. Shut her down and called Progressive immediately. Estimate for repairs is right at $13K and the damn car's only worth around $14K.
