Gotta ask again: how much do these wheels weigh? Even a sampling of sizes and models would be helpful.

No- but depending on what brand and grade of oil you've been using, your VQ may thank you (by lasting a little longer).

Check engine light may not be on, but codes may be held in memory. You access the diagnostic system via the OBD2 port- all Z33 models have them. You may need to use a more sophisticated code reader.

If either the OP or limp350Z would take the time to download codes from the ECM or ABS diagnostic systems, they'd have a fighting chance to figure out what's gone wrong with their Z.

Nice looking Redline Z. I'd also suggest you change out the tranny fluid to Redline MT85 and do a full bleed of the brake master/system with your favorite brake fluid.

Yes, open ended studs are the way to go. There's also a side benefit in that the 60mm studs allow the use of spacers (up to 20mm) with enough thread engagement for track use.
