    Close but no cigar, just smoke.

    Tried to get the car ready for MOT tomorrow, thought I had it under control, just needed to do power FC idle relearn with 555cc injectors and power intake but could not get the thing to drive properly, AEM wideband was saying full lean but I have my doubts as this is the second sensor that seems to have potentially died. Its mounted as described >15* from horizontal but it must not like something as ive had one on my 350Z for years without issue.

    Had to rip the gear surround out as I could smell burning, turns out its the new cat from ebay, footwell is bloody roasting aswell so off to try find some random heat shield to fit in the space the oem one used to go.

    on a separate subject,what those? they look awesome.

    You only need two tools in life - wd-40 and duct tape. If it doesn't move and should, use the wd-40. If it shouldn't move and does, use the duct tape.

    And if you can't fix it with a hammer,you've got an electrical problem!

    Most of the car is different now so you would need to be more specific lol, the interesting stuff for me can't be seen from the pictures; 350z gearbox,carbon propshaft,diff, driveshafts.

    Or do you mean Mr Bump?

    Got lazy towards the end and tried to remove the airbag light but too risky breaking the rev counter needle to remove it.
