The link is provided below, but from now it will be on sale for around 4 hrs. so I was thinking maybe if we search up the title in bold text we can find it again later. The questions is it only costs $25 !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Not the bidding price but an actual price is $25 !!!!!!! To me this is too good to be true, $25 for 40hp ?

I would like your opinions guys, please let me know what you guys think.

The sellers have 99.5% seller rating and they do 60 days money back guarantee.

This will be a massive, I repeat MASSIVE pile of shit.

When was the last time you saw a 40hp gain for $25?

Exactly.

Still it's got a money back guarantee; what could possibly go wrong?

Exactly.

thanks for ur opinion Dale,

I'm currently in USA atm so I've been looking at the prices here compared to sydney.

I've read some good reviews for chips that cost $80-$120 and the expensive ones are $500... The good one was called SLR motorsports performance chip.

These prices does not include the labour costs.

whereas in sydney I've noticed these chips cost around $2k-$2.5k...some idiot quoted $4k... but all these prices in sydney includes the cost of labour...

so are you of the belief that anything under $2k would be useless? and that I will have to go through a professional to have them installed?

I know nothing about the mechanical side, so I do not wish to install them myself.

have you had any experience with performance chips/ECUs?

The only thing that is plug and play is to send your ecu to technosquare for $500 and get it flashed.

Or

Utec ems, inlay have one for sale, look up the info in a link I posted few days ago, or u can get rev up tune but these things only give u about 11rwhp gain on NA.

That eBay thing is bull $hit

That is the one in Victoria right??

The thing is, I'm so noob with mechanics I don't even know where my ecu is :wacko:

Correct me if i'm wrong, but I'm looking to spend $500 on,

1. Plenum Spacers

2. Pod Filter & Z-tube

I heard from many sources that this would give me around 25Hp at the engine? is this correct?

and I have purchased a grounding kit just now on e-bay. I hope it's good.

It's stillen grounding kit for infiniti g35. I paid $79 USD

since yous eem to be the guy who knows more on this stuff, can I install plenum spacers, pod filters ans z-tube on my own?

or does it require professional work?

Also is a z-tube necessary for additional horsepower?

your reply would be appreciated :)

The forum has an excellent search function, I can only suggest that you give it a go.

Thanks for ur info,

btw, do u have sway bars for V35 coupe??

I you got the Stillen grounding kit and you have an auto, add an extra cable from a grounding point to the gearbox. Apparently shifts are improved. But I wouldn't trust that ebay thing, it looks like one of those weird "connect to battery +ve and -ve" things.

Hey, thanks for your reply.

Could you please tell me more??

I just ordered it so i will receive it 2 days or so.

I have no idea about these griunding kits. I know what they do but I don't know how to install.

When you say "add an extra cable" do I have to purchase additional cables??

it says it is 4/8 awg cable whatever that means. I was told by Victor to buy that type.

and also what do u mean by weird :connect to battery things?"

did I pay for the wrong stuff ??

I can get them,:thumbsup: are you Sydney based?

I'm going to gauge interest again shortly in the V Series forum for a Group Buy. If I can get more than 5 interested parties the prices are VERY good.

Also, Plenum spacers, filters etc, are well within the scope of a patient backyarder with some decent hand tools.:thumbsup:

Cheers, Dale.

Oh no, not again with the ebay stuff! Why not try powerchip as Wayne Besanko will be happy to help you with his degree in commerce. The only way to gain power is sticking to basics i.e. More head flow, more exhaust flow, F.I , Nitrous, advance timing/tune etc etc so stay away from ebay's 'performance chip' 'electric supercharger' etc as they are gimmicks.

Another thing you can try is sprint booster, it will NOT increase your hp/TQ but it increases your throttle response by modifying the drive by wire signals. Also regarding with grounding kits, is it really required to have them on a fairly late model car? pretty sure grounding haven't deteriorated within few years.

Grounding kit is needed, have u seen how sh!t the grounding is on our car? Ask if they gave u that extra cable, some do. Makes more of a difference on the 5AT than 6MT.

No technosquare is in USA, maybe they have someone in Australia doing them. I do think there is someone in Victoria doing uprev tuning but not sure, either way u only do it after u do all ur mods. I'm selling my pod filter, z-tube in month or so when I go FI. And yes u can install yourself. If u in goldcoast I'll install them for you. Plenum spacer bit harder but still doable

Oh and I only gained 11 rwkw from de ypipe, hfc, plenum spacer, ztube, jwolf pop charger, grounding kit (my own)... Already had fujitsubo muffler. Total was 170rwkw.

Ypipe and plenum made most difference I think. Ztube and popcharer a little but add to the sound which sounds awesome.

Lol, sounds like a bargain buy, seems legit! unsure.gif

To be honest, it's not remotely worth looking at tuning the ecu on the v35.. the only time you'd do it is if you already have intake, ignition and exhaust mods then you will get a little and i mean a little only gain.

Unless you wanna get it tuned to fix the stupid problem where they bloody ping from factory..that's a different matter.

Yeah suspension is good on the V, it's still a heavy bastard though at 1500+ kgs though the front midship layout makes it quite agile for it's size and weight. Chassis stiffness isn't too bad either so suspension is definitely worth it.

SOunds good,

I dunno if they come with the extra cable. If they don't where can I purchase one?

But I might visit you in a month or so, I will buy the pod filter and z-tube from you if they are in good condition.

Let me know closer to the date :)

    • The springs just lets the valve bleed off pressure/oil and it bypasses the feed gallery and heads back to where the pickup feed is On the LS the oil gets the the bearings...eventually  This vid explains the OEM pump well IRT the pressure release valve and how the bypass works The oil pressure light coming on intamitantly could just be a sticky valve, but, why pull something apart and not put something better in  I believe the low oil pressure light comes on somewhere between 5-10 psi Well will stick a gauge in after the installation to see what difference it makes at hot idle and higher RPM, and by high RPM I mean 6300 RPM.....LOL
    • My bottom end was rebuilt... so I think it's standard? Or refreshed.. standard? I didn't do it - I bought it with a lot of receipts but it has new bearings, new pump and was re-assembled. Apparently I have the standard flow, standard pressure pump. I did notice the oil pressure for a LS at idle is quite low, but not critically bad, I am happy that it's at about 28psi now (that my gauges work/don't leak). I would have probably specced the high pressure one, but I'll admit my ignorance after making my other post, I don't see how the pressure spring changes things. Given the pressure is a resistance to flow... high flow should also = high pressure, and your oil pump specifications should be dictated by how the engine is built (hence the sincere thankyou video man)
    • my first time on the track, just after getting the 32. tyres were 3yr old NT01's, rotors were cactus, pads were street pads. You can see the vibrations when I hit the brakes lol. After this is when I put new BDA rotors, Hi Temp Brake fluid and Intima type 2 pads. Wow what a difference
    • I second the recommendation to use a power bleeder. Pressure on the cap, if you want you can try some vacuum on the bleeder too with a hand pump. Pressure is needed on the cap to make sure that everything only goes one direction instead of potentially getting air sucked into the bleeder. 
    • Which one do you use? Your bottom end is still standard isn't it?
