  1. think I saw yours when my zed was with jimmer a few weeks ago, that exhaust is a work of art, should see the mess powerflow made of mine, exhaust is my next 'to do' job after winter
  2. infinity exhausts bristol can build you one
  3. it's a pain, I live in the middle of the sticks so no garages local to me stock super unleaded which is unbelievable, my nearest shell garage is 20 miles away so I have to plan my days out carefully. it dosen't help that forecourt tanks are usually bigger for regular petrol and they stock far less 'super' but in the short term e10 should be fine until you can get super, its regular prolonged use that will cause issues.
  4. depending on what exactly you need you could try CZP or Z1 in the usa, or amiyama.com. keep in mind though a lot of oem parts are no longer available from nissan so aftermarket is the only way to go.
  5. So I needed a new cowl trim so I bit the bullet and bought silicone oil cooler pipes as well, would the constant tension spring clips (same as on the fuel lines) be ok on these or would I be better off using screw type clips like the originals?
  6. great thanks Andrew, I may look at the 18" wheel option first and try to get a little more rubber between the rim and tarmac, as there isn't a lot with 19s which may help, it's mainly when I hot potholes the car hits them hard.
  7. hi guys currently looking at a spring swap on my car, basically with the state of the roads where I live the ride is quite harsh with potholes etc. I'm currently running kyb excel g shocks and eibach springs, so considering going with oem springs. are tt/ na springs the same? my other option is swapping my wheels from 19's down to 18's
  8. the Volvo washer jets arrived today, popped them in along with a one way valve and they work great. replaced the washer tubing under the bonnet as well whilst I was at it. the old jets broke on removal and were full of black gunk.
  9. welcome back chunk, I'm not in a white zed anymore so no more of your fridge freezer comments 😉 speak soon buddy
  10. which washer jets is that people use on the z? I did read on an old post they were Volvo jets but the link no longer works. need to replace mine as one side on each is blocked, tried various methods of cleaning but it's not clearing them.
  11. I ordered some parts off Alyama a few weeks back had them in hand within 7 days
  12. Time Left: 24 days and 16 hours

    hi guys would anyone have 2 of the attached clip, part number 62228-51S00, I can get them from the USA but don't fancy the postage just for 2 small clips. they are for retaining the front bumper to the metal suppler brackets, it appears mine have popped off somewhere.


  13. for anybody looking at getting a new a/c condenser I'm just going to send a t/t condenser to BHM Compak in the next few days, so it would be an ideal time to order yours.
  14. got the ai 606 on mine, the siren is located under the nose panel, however mine failed 2/3 weeks ago, the car was a non starter first time ever, turns out one of the immobiliser circuits failed. I'm now looking at fitting just an imobiliser unit once I get the ai6o6 removed.
  15. I had the battery out today to deal with some surface rust on the tray and generally clean the area around the battery, anyhow I noticed 2 rubber fuel lines, which I’m guessing have never been replaced as they are hidden with the battery in the car, they went under the a/c piping I can see the clamp on the end of one, are these replaceable with the engine in the car? I was considering replacing them and using spring clamps on refitting.
  16. cool thanks Richard, probably my best option, I don't trust z1 silicone pipes after the fiasco with the pcv kit I bought off them, they started bleeding oil after 18months because they weren't lined, so I replaced them with a set from SFS which were lined.
  17. hi guys, had the nose cone off the zed yesterday to clean the air filter, and I noticed the oil cooler lines are as hard as a rock, I'm guessing they are probably the originals so it's going to be time to change them soon, having a look around I can either replace with genuine rubber hoses or flurolined silicone, but mainly from the usa. does it really need the moulded hoses on there or can I just buy straight (flouro lined) silicone pipe and replace with that?
  18. just been on my local news, they have reduced parking spaces and fitted some stone barriers to reduce 'boy racers and high speed manoeuvres) in cheddar, on another note, I now can't make Sunday, had a job come in for monday so need to get everything prepped and loaded in the van.
  19. czp do both the z-spec and the interior innovations units I believe
  20. I was looking at the ts-wx130ea, as I have dedicated front/rear and sub outputs on my stereo (also pioneer) plus I can set hi-pass and low-pass filters/ cross over frequency etc. I also have a gm-d1004 running the in car speakers. reviews seem pretty good apart from one guy who said he blew it up within a week (pushed it too hard I would guess) the verdict is still out, ideally I would like to find somewhere with one in stock I can listen too.
  21. hi guys so I'm looking at improving the sound quality of the stereo in the zed, I don't want a big boot build but something a lot more subtle just to give me a bit of punch, so I'm looking at under seat subs, anybody fitted them? if so what are they like, in particular I'm looking at the pioneer units.
  22. put me down as a maybe, I'm slightly higher up the southwest region so it's an 1.5 hour journey to cheddar which will be a 3.5 hour journey home. pus I may have plans made for me for the weekend lol
  23. the problem I had this morning was even trying to clean the wires back the copper was just snapping off, hopefully if I do go down the running replacement wires route I find something a little more solid to connect too.
  24. got the old girl firing on all 6, even found the aprox location of the break in the wire, which was across the front of the engine, however looking at the PTU wires they are all very brittle and oxidised, I may cut them all back and replace all 6, but I get the feeling they won't be much different no matter how far I cut them back.
  25. So I guess as I have later injectors I would need the later loom and swap the cas?
