  1. I'm learning to make some beautiful music with her Chubbs! I can't remember the last time I turned the Gracenote on as I'd much rather listen to the invidia over the crap I've got on the HD 🤣. I'm looking forward to wearing her in to get to the burbbles on Decel too! Now I managed to pick up a new second hand stormforce car cover my mission for this year is complete! I'm skint but she's worth every penny!

  2. Thanks everyone! I've been renovating the Zed. Fitted new window motor. Coilpacks replaced, new cam covers, new sparkplugs, replaced headlights. New W brace, kidney brackets, Y Pipe, exhaust hangers procured. Bonnet and front wings procured as well as rear arch cutouts (mostly courtesy of ZManAlex). Fitted new boot struts and boot 'poppers'. Also got a Milwaukee Right Angle Wrench (Long Reach): fantastic!!

  4. This weekend we are expecting to complete the upgrade to the forum and things are going to be a little different. The big change will be the way you sign in. You will need to use your registered email address to access the forum. If anyone has issues accessing you can message me, so make note of my phone number - its in my signature below. Bear with us, as with all things new, we may have a few teething problems, but it will be worth it in the long run. On behalf of Committee

  6. Scorpion Y-pipe and cat back exhaust fitted today. 15 years out of the original one wasn't bad going. This has a lifetime warranty allegedly Sent from my Redmi Note 7 using Tapatalk

  7. Joe, I would go Ecutek if you have the option, as it offers more (traction control being one, iPhone / Android tweaking another). Power from both will be around the same. I originally had uprev but changed to Ecutek once I S/C the car as it offered much better coding and protection. One big difference is that Uprev can be removed and the license refunded, but once you go Ecutek thats it, but this is a small price to pay in my opinion. You'll be looking at around 40-60bhp increase (from what I remember), but the mid range pickup and throttle response is much better. The car also revs more f

  8. I am sure mine has got louder as I have had it on there for a couple of years. My neighbours say they can here my car cold start and know it is me but from inside I tell them it is not loud if Chas still has his Z then his neighbours must have a dart board with his picture on Sent from my CLT-L09 using Tapatalk

  9. Saw a 66 plate 370 nismo (White) on the A1 near Letchworth on Saturday evening. It had a trade plate on the dash, and the driver seemed to be dabbing the brakes a fair as he exited the motorway; was wondering if it was one of the Norton Way Motors mechanics on a test drive..

  11. The current spacing is pretty much the standard these days. WordPress works the same way. Shift + Enter for a soft line break (<br>) Enter for a new paragraph. So remove all of your current spacing to give you one block of text and use the soft break. I'll fix yours for you now

  13. Thanks to all for the good wishes. Didn't get (or buy) anything car related, but did have an extremely nice lunch out at a new, to us, venue. And to Paul_K and Chubbs I'd just like to say And to Junior: Don't worry - I'm hatching a cunning plan...

  14. When I had my 370Z I had an UpRev done at Horsham (having had Stillen Gen 3's etc fitted) and I can clearly remember seeing the difference in the torque curve particularly mid range. It was definitely more responsive throughout and I seem to recall that you're right about the limiting in lower gears - which was removed by the tune. On the Dyno my 370 then showed as 362.8 BHP (see pic below) I think whichever way you go, you will be very pleased with the result. Flywheel Dyno.pdf

  15. Hi Vicky, basically the forum software we use is old and this will bring us fully up to date. The new version will be secure (HTTPS) and offer new features and a new look and feel. I expect people will love some changes and dislike others as we're so used to how it is now. But that is the way of these things. Ultimately, our hands are tied as to how it functions, but there might be some scope to tweak the appearance over time. The web based version of the forum on a mobile device is much better than it is now. However, if you use TapaTalk you probably won't notice anything different.

  18. Hi Joe .. I find this question very interesting as i too am considering the same. I contacted Horsham develpoments to ask what i could get after i had fitted a cat-back exhaust also if i fitted an aFe Takeda stage 2 pro-dry air induction long tube system. I was advised that I would get heat soak into the long tubes, probably best stick with the factory fitted tubes and fit K&N panel filters (had already fitted panel filters), then best go for Ecutek as they have moved away from Uprev.. Seems like the Ecutek has more options, although I would be limited on a couple of the options as m

  20. Finished using the Autofinesse Tripple All In One to cleanse the paint then put a coat of Turtlewax Hydrophobic Sealant wax about 1am last night. This morning I put a second coat of Turtlewax on. Then took the wheels off to give them a winter clean and protect. All purpose cleaner. Rinse. Blow dry. No tar remover left but cracked on and used IronX fallout remover. Rinsed and washed again. Using one of the wheels to lean against looks artistic as well as practical [emoji38] Dried and IPA wipe down following by Gtechniq C5. They're now curing in the garage. Not looking bad for 13 yr old wheels

  21. Hah, yeah still with me currently. I have noticed my neighbour has recently taken to playing music at all hours, not particularly loud but it's the type that you just hear thum thump thump through the walls, it may well be a revenge thing which Is why I've not said anything for now... While I'm here I was just gonna ask what that big silver thing is in Chris's second pic ?? Answer: Dead weight

  23. Had a service and inspection today. All good. Also fitted a custom DSC controller for the suspension to make it completely active. I replaced the original Nissan battery as it was starting to struggle after 2 days on none driving, but 11 year on the original battery is OK i think.

  27. Talk today of calls from MPs for a knighthood. SirLH44. His drive yesterday was just the perfect way of wrapping up title No.7. Not perfect, but very close. “It’s all about the car” haha...he lapped his team mate, solely because his team mate couldn’t keep it on the slippery track. You know, his Finish team mate. Just need Lewis and Toto to do their deals now.

  30. There are a lot of features which make the site easier to use - Youtube videos that do not need the address changing from https to http as an example and the way it handles graphics. Even the emoji have a fresh new look. Its a real leap. But the big thing for me is the site is hpps now - which adds a level of re-assurance to the data. Really good.

  31. The forum upgrade is scheduled for this Saturday. This will mean we will be off line for a few hours on Saturday whilst Paul completes the change. We dont know how long this will take and Paul is a busy chap with many commitments. We are grateful to him for all his time and please bear with him whilst he completes his wizardry. Enjoy your Saturday and will all be here waiting in our new shiny forum when we get back on line.

  33. I received a fairly substantial cheque/payment from the state today. No, I haven't broken the habit of a lifetime and decided to give kids a try - it wasn't that large a payment anyway, which is surprising as it's far less environmentally damaging (and that's from someone whose degree included environmental economics) - rather, I've just received six months road tax rebate on the Zed. It's like a savings account where you put money in and get less back at the end of the term. Careful, it'll catch on.

  36. I think blobbish pretty much summed it up. I've had UpRev for years (in fact, Abbey Motorsport used my car for some of their development work back in 2011 - 2013) and love it. With UpRev you can get 5(?) different maps that you can change on the fly with the steering wheel controls which can alter the map, rev limiter, throttle response, etc. With Ecutek there are a whole load of other options and toys to play with over and above that. If you have forced induction then I think you have to go Ecutek to get the most out of your investment. With just air intakes and an exhaust I'm not su
