Adding Cruise Control To 370Gt Sp


Recommended Posts

I mistakingly thought that all 370gt SP models came with Cruise Control as standard...(should have looked closer).....Does anyone know if their is a kit that can add Cruise or if it is possible to buy the original Cruise and have it fitted to the steering wheel??? If so, what does the kit cost and approximate installation costs, or I can DIY if its not rediculously complicated.

Cheers

done a couple of them now. its not DIY . I do one for it that involves a fair bit of work but it behaves and looks OEM.

and scroll down to the red V36.

Chris,

Thats some nice work on that V36, good stuff.

Quick question, do you have details on how to DIY the video bypass for a reverse camera. While I would gladly love for you to do some similar work on my car it would be a long way for me to drive from Singapore..:)

Thanks

Rick

clarify :) that car is a custom job.

Hi Chris,

Being based in Singapore and with only 5 V36's on the road here iam always on the bad end of getting any custom work done as few here have experience with the car. Getting my car to brisbane is obviously out of the question.

Any suggestions on the video bypass hack?

Thanks

Rick

Hi Chris - is the problem with adding something like the rostra unit (which I put on my r34 without much trouble) the throttle contols on a 370? I seem to rember a picture of the engine pay and a throttle cable going to both sides...

If that is the case, what does it cost for you to do one (I'm looking at getting a 370 to replace my aging r34 GTT..) and could bring it to brisbane... (pm if you like).

rostra is cable driven. these are electric. wont really work.

Thanks, thought there would be an obvious reason... Mind you, I wouldn't enjoy the drive from melb to brisbane without one (I'm driving up in a few months anyway..).

it's a shame they just didn't put it on every car - I'd never buy a car without it - as it would only add a dollar or so to the car cost as the ECU knows the speed and the ECU is doing the throttle electronically, so all it need was a small program and some buttons to press to set/reset the speed...

Are all the V35 and V35 cars (ie 250gt, 350gt and 370GT) done electrically ie not by cable?

I agree, the G35, has cruise, but the V35 doesn't, the ECU is different and cruse requires aftermarket kits. Why they didn't use the same ECU and just omit the steering wheel buttons for the V35,is beyond me..

Must be a Japan thing, just about every car over the last 10 years sold here has cruise as standard, unless you buy a 'cheap' car. In Japan cruise seems to be the exception to the norm.

I bought the drive-by-wire kit and factory V35 steeering wheel switches quite a few years ago from Chris - they work flawlessly. Highly recommended.

ranlod - you have the option of paying for a flight to get Chris to singapore to work on your car - I know of a guy here in Adelaide who flew Chris down to mod his V35 sedan.

I'm in the same boat. In Sydney. Any help or contacts are much appreciated. Also the wheel is a little worn, is it easier to just get a whole new wheel with the controls already there or just get the Synergy kit and install?

Hi Chris,

I’ve been going through the threads looking at posts regarding cruise control. Looking to install  the oem style control in my recently purchased 2007 manual 370gt 

im in Coffs Harbour, wondering who could do an install? Or would I need to take a trip to Brisbane?  if the border is ever opened that is. 
what country are you living in now? 
thanks in advance.

    • 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?
