Hmm, all these positive reviews are making me want to try this out, although I don't really mind the really grabby feel of my clutch or the small engagement window all Zs have.

Congrats on the vendor status Ryan. Look forward to trying this out with my ceramic FX400 clutch. I am sure it will be a great improvement over the on/off switch I have now.

Boosted Thanks, your advice seems to be working out nicely Hope you enjoy your AFP System Kit.

AngelsVQ- Thank you for the order PM Sent

str8dum1- Sorry to hear you've got very little threads left. If you're otherwise satisfied with the new clutch feel and would like to dial it up more again I can fabricate you a custom AFP Slider. I'd make one with the clutch fork about 3/16" Longer to restore full engagement of the threads.
If that's something you think would help you then I'll get it put together and ship it out to you this week.

One thing to check first though is that you don't have any of the firewall insulation between the firewall and the new brackets as that would hold it out and cause what your describing.

Let me know.

It arrived yesterday, but it is -30* C out here, so I don't think I will be doing any driving with the Z any time soon.

Kit looks great though, can't wait to try it out.

Default UPDATE for G35 Guys Here

Special thanks to LoSt180 for pointing out my mistake on the 07' G35 Coupes. They did not receive the update to the VQ35HR in 07' like the Sedan or the 07' 350Z. So these kits will fit the 07' Coupe Only and I've been updating things accordingly.

Diesel350- You'll need to give us a little more info on your car. The Z Pedal with a stock clutch should not feel mushy at all. To me "Mushy" sounds like a hydraulics problem or air still trapped in the system. If I had to describe a stock Z/G pedal I'd say stiff and springy. Did you upgrade your clutch line or have the stock line off for a clutch swap?

I have a 2006 with an upgraded SS clutch line.

Diesel350 I would put money on it that you have air still trapped from the SS clutch line install. If you look near the bottom of page 2 of this thread there is a youtube video posted of a really cool way to perfectly bleed the clutch lines which I'll definitely be using myself in future. I'd start there or have someone re-bleed the system for you and see if your mushy feeling improves.

Once you have that sorted out then we can talk about what my product can do to improve the enjoyment of your car

I was pretty conscious to make sure that the mat wasnt under the bracket. I will double check again though. A longer slider or an extension for the rod would be easy fixes. I liked the engagement when the bracket was set to 75% more than at the 50% its at now.

I'll also send you a pick of the top bolt. I couldnt get a socket on it because it was sitting against the bracket. Not really like the install pics.

Ok thanks, is it easy to access the bleeder screw on the clutch slave cylinder of the 350z?

Diesel350, Once you get the car lifted up on all 4 corners enough to work underneith then it's fairly easy to access right on the drivers side of the transmission near the back of the bellhousing. Once under there you'll easily spot it.

str8dum1- Ok, shoot me a pic to my email so I can see where your having trouble. The next 25 units are going to be laser cut on Monday so I still have time to make changes and scallop out the area where its too tight on your car. I agree though something sounds off as the pics in the install guide are of my 06' and I can get a deep socket on that bolt no problem as seen in the pics. For the next batch I'll lengthen the AFP clutch fork by an 1/8th so everyone will have about 3 more threads in future.
Since the AFP slider can't be disassembled easily I'll just send you another complete AFP Slider assembly with a longer fork. Will 3/16" Longer give you enough to work with?

I can probably get a longer fork laser cut on Mon/Tues for you and have the new assembly shipped out on Weds.

Look for the upcoming kits to feature a Completely New A.F.P. Adjustment System that is light years ahead of the current design as well.

I had to start from the ground up and do an all new replacement pedal assembly for these newer cars. Nissan made their updated factory brackets completely non-servicable so there is no way to seperate the factory bracket from the pedal arm or even lube them properly in the future.

UPDATED- Coming Soon List!

07' - 08' G35 Sedan 6MT VQ35HR A.F.P. System
07' - 08' 350Z (All Trims) 6MT VQ35HR A.F.P. System

08' - 12' G37 Coupe 6MT A.F.P. System
09' - 12' G37 Sedan 6MT A.F.P. System

09' - 12' 370Z (All Trims, 6MT) A.F.P. System.
