Default BigBlue's '07 HR

I've been a fan of this site since I bought my Z in early 2007 and get plenty of good info. from it; finally joined offically yesterday and thought I'd list some basic info. about my car; love it and it runs strong and smooth:

2007 350Z Enthusiast, San Marino Blue 6 speed MT

*Some things that I have done so far (edited over time):

Central 20 3.9 fd gears
Hotchkis sway bars
Powergrid end links
Bilstien PSS10 coils
Stillen (Vortech V-3) Supercharger kit
Motordyne TDX exhaust with ART pipes
Enkei RPF1's, black, 9.5x18 F, 10.5x18 R +15 all 4 (Sumitomo HTRZ3, F-265/35, R-285/35).
Rays gunmetal color lug nuts
Akebono 14" BBK
UpRev tuning system
SPC camber arms
TWM Abrahms "black pearl" weighted shift **** (460 grams)

** Many of the pictures that were in this thread are now gone. I'll start re-posting some of them as the car modifications progressed (2013-'17), about pg. 12!

I would normally say the same about the wheels, to me 19s are the biggest I would go on a Z33 but these actually dont look bad maybe get some big brakes to fill the wheels a bit

Thanks guys! Yeah I didn't plan on the 20" but I love these wheels and Vossen doesn't make the 19's. The thing is though now that I've got them I'm sold on them and get a lot of compliments. Thanks for the input, I've read on this site for years now the debate between the 19 + 20". *Also, I agree that a big brake set up would look better for sure.

I got a GoPro camera the other day and made these 2 vids. I had never used windows live movie maker before and just kind of figured out some editing; not that great of job, but I wanted to show the Motordyne TDX2 + ART pipes. This first one was to show a "cold start" down to idle, then I hit the road to make the next one.

Now this one I suction cupped the camera just below my license plate; once again to show the exhaust rowdiness; at the start of it I do a 0-120, 4th gear pull; had to slow down due to catching up to traffic a couple of times, but anyway the vid. has several good moments with the MD exhaust! Obviously my editing needs to improve as this vid shows itself twice somehow, but I hope that you guys enjoy it anyway! *Ordered the new Stillen SC kit 2 days ago, it uses a Vortech V3 supercharger.

Great! You would agree if you got them; much nicer than stock. Most set them in the #2 hole which is a lot stiffer than stock; I think #1 hole setting is 80% stiffer than stock. The stiffest setting can be tough to set at due to angle of the endlinks. You wouldn't need to worry about that, just go with the recommended setting and you'll be impressed.
