How does the speedometer read? It says GPS. Do you have the gps unit mounted somewhere?

 

There is a little GPS antenna ( 1.25" square about 3/8" thick) I have on top of the dash tucked into the corner. Its right next to the prox. sensor for the keyless entry and start. It's not really noticeable (to me). All the rest of the stuff is integral to the speedo.

 

You have the option to wire the speedo with a separate 12v  memory feed. They say it draws only milliaps and it allows the speedo to boot up quickly instead of trying to locate the satellites every time you restart the car. It works great for me, the display is up and running in less than 3 seconds. It also has a little display screen that you can switch to show time, digital speed, top speed, 0-60, elevation and a few other things that I cant remember.

Yep. oil pressure. It says "oil" but the pointer hides it in that pic.

Also each gauge in the 4-way has its own warning light and you can  set the triggers individually .

I see your pictures from the MAF trouble show a very red air filter. Either that is a new filter or you over oiled it after cleaning. It appears to be a very common problem and results in exactly the problems you had. Well... maybe it’s not THAT common, but I’ve done it and didn’t have too much trouble finding other idiots on various Rat-free forums that had done it too.

^ Thanks. I bought Berrymans MAF cleaner early on in the troubleshooting process, so I think it would have cleaned any residual oil off the sensor.... The engine ran fine for a year before it started acting up. The red air filter was from the PO and I replaced it with a shorter one when i was re working the intake (on the passenger side  B) ). 

 

The "replacement" MAF from RockAuto was a poorly remanufactured made in China item (POS) and worked like crap from almost the get go regardless of the air filter. My problem was i kept thinking that I eliminated MAF as the cause of the stalling because "I just replaced it", so I went about replacing the IACV, FPR, plugs, cap, rotor, wires and aux air valve over the next 3 to 4 months. The ECU kept throwing the MAF was bad code, so out of desperation I bought a new MAF from Nissan online and it has never run better. By then it was past the 90 day warranty return period so I had to eat the cost. fuuuuu. Plus all the unnecessary parts I replaced. double fuuuuuu.

Wheel test fit. Isuzu Trooper LS alum. 16x7 +38 w Firestone Firehawk Indy 500, 205/55 front 225/50 rear.

 

Still have to sort out the center caps. It's hard to find the blank ones without the Isuzu logo and need black lug nutz...Rubbing in the back slightly. Will need to add new studz and 1/4" spacers.

Got the wheels sorted out.

Installed new wheel studs. Converted to 1.50 thread pitch and picked up McGuard black chrome deep lug nutz.

Baer solid aluminum 1/2" spacers for the rear

With 1" spacers in the front. 

I managed to score two 'blank' center caps on ebay (put them on the rear), still looking for two more. 

Tires are 225/50/16 rear, 205/55/16 in the front, Firestone Firehawk indy 500 summer tires.

So did you really need the 1" spacer for the front for clearance or for it to look right?

You'd need at least 1/4" spacers front and rear to keep from rubbing on the inside leafs/control arms. I went with the 1" front and 1/2" rear spacers to get the tires more flush without sticking out.

 

FWIW these wheels are the same size and offset as the Nismo TE37X factory Ray's wheel.

 

These tire sizes are pretty close to stock diameter, so they fill the wheel wells pretty good IMHO. Interesting thing is that the steering effort is the same or easier that the 195/60's i replaced.

Thanks for the info! I was thinking of using 1/2" for both front and rear for my Nismo's.

FYI - I dont think you can run 1/2" spacers with the stock studs, I couldnt - but I have Isuzu rear calipers. You'll might have to upgrade to longer ones. I chose the ARP ones for a Chevy and they fit perfectly, that's why I changed to 12x1.5 pitch. Tip: get a stud install tool on Amazon. It helps immensely when installing the new ones.

Do you have an part# for both the studs and the tool? Why did you go to different size tires from the front vs the back, looks?

Tire size = looks only. They are both almost the same diameter, but like many "exotics" the staggered look has a good visual to me. I dont like stretch and poke, I like to tuck meats without rolling the fender lip. Mike liked my p0st, so that means it has to be remotely "ok". #youkidsgetoffmylawn  

 

The stud installer is on Amazon: https://www.amazon.c...0?ie=UTF8&psc=1

 

The studs are on Amazon or Summit.: https://www.amazon.c...1?ie=UTF8&psc=1

They are ARP 1007708, http://arp-bolts.com...php?RecordID=68 The knurl is .509 which fits perfectly in my Isuzu rotors. They are listed as a GM part, and you have to change your lug nuts from 12x1.25 TO 12x1.50 to use them...so order new lug nuts. If you dont get extra deep lug nuts, you'll need to cut them off shorter because they will be too long. They are Grade 8, so I'd suggest you get an angle grinder with a new good, fresh wheel if you cut them.

 

Since I was using 1" spacers in the front, I ordered 1.50 spacers to match the new rear studs:  https://www.amazon.c...ie=UTF8&psc=1

FTL: my 3 month old Walbro GSL 393 fuel pump started screaming a couple of days ago.

 

I done with these cheapo fuel pumps. I ordered a new Aeromotive 1109 pump and I'm installing a Holley electric "pusher" pump between the tank and the hi pressure pump. Even though the main pimp is mounted below the fuel tank, it cant suck worth a damn. I'm hoping it solves the fuel issues.

 

I saw a p0st about a guy with a Z having the same issues...http://forums.hybrid...-noise-too-much. He installed a pusher pump.

Fail.

 

Pump(s) dont help. FML. Seems like it is starving for fuel, this pump is wailing like the walbro which is a sign of low fuel volume input. I even blew out the line back to the tank with low pressure compressed air to make sure it is not clogged.

Im going to drop the tank and see if I can install a new Aeromotive in tank pump and fuel pressure regulator and new fuel lines.

 

Cant really drive it because it sputters and surges above 2500 RPM.

 

grrrrr.
