Summary Of P1-110 Of The M35 Info Uber Thread

Recommended Posts

I bought an NM35, read the Info thread, and made notes. Also added a few tidbits I found.

UPDATE: Added more info from pages 1 to 9 of this thread


The V35 & M35 airboxes have the same part number. They are, Back of airbox 16526, front of airbox 16528, + filter required. The K&N filter that fits is 33-2031-2.
Air filter is Ryco A360 (same as all skylines, 350Z Z33 Series 1, some commodores and many other cars)

Air filter change interval: 20,000-30,000kms
Spark plugs NI22401-5M016…..they are also $24.15 each OR NI22401-AQ816 (or Denso Iridiums Part #IKH22) (or Denso IKH22)
Uses 5L of oil. Change interval is 5,000kms. Engine requires 4.8L to the H mark, 4.0L to the L mark

Oil spec: SJ, 0W-20 all the way to 15W-50 depending on usage
Oil filter is Ryco Z436 or Z445 : Nismo (Veruspeed) 15208-RN010 : K&N: HP-1008 : Amsoil Ea012
z445 - seal diameter 63mm, height - 65mm, seam diameter - 68mm, thread size - M20-x1.5-6Hmm
z436 - seal diameter 64mm, height - 66mm, seam diameter - 69.50mm, thread size - M20-x1.5-6Hmm
Oil filter is same as VQ35 and SR engines
Belts are the same as 350z; Air con - 4PK950, Power steering/fan/alternator - 6PK1180
Belts are 4PK945 or 4PK0950 and 6PK1180 (NOTE: the digit before the PK is the number of ribs on the belt, PK means automotive cross-section, and the number after the PK is the length in mm)
Standard turbo is a Garrett M24N and is a ball bearing unit with ceramic exhaust wheel
Factory boost is 12-12.8psi
AFM is same as T30 Xtrail
OBD2 plug is a small black panel at the lowest point of dash on the drivers side, to the left of the steering wheel. The plug is attached to the panel and it drops down when you open the release on the side.

350z alternator is a direct replacement for the vq25det. Part number from NM35 is 23100-AM610 (MrStabby got it rebuilt for $260. Ebay from the US ~$350 delivered). The VQ35 starter sort of fits, it's larger and probably more powerful than the little VQ25 unit. The power lead is on a different angle and gets close to the hot side cooler pipe

Battery: Century NS40ZL (330 CCA) or NS40ZLX (premium, 390 CCA), NRMA/RAC 2384/2047/3053

Suspension and Brakes

Front rotors and pads are the same as 350z touring/V35 Skyline/current Maxima
Rear rotors and pads are the same as the 350z touring/V35 Skyline/X-trail
The rear pads & rotors for the 350z or v35 will not fit without modification
Rda do nice semi metallic brake pads (~$30 per end), MUCH better than standard, not dusty
Rda front; RDB1232SM (Listed as Maxima front pad)
Rda rear; RDB1509SM (Listed as X-Trail rear pad)
Shocks are KYB 350z premiums and at NZ$225 ea. they are a bargain
Pretty sure v35/g35 front strut bar will fit m35
Camber/toe kit is same as g35/350z
BRAKE MOD: The M35 ecu limits the throttle to 30% when the brake is applied and for approximately 3 seconds after its release. Cutting the brake signal to the ecu disables this but it will eventually throw a fault code unless you find some way to trick it. (connect it up temporarily when you don't need throttle.) Most just run a switch and tap the brake as they flick it, only needs to be done occasionally. The kick panel ecu is for the trans, the ecu is behind the glove box. Mod is to cut the pink/blue strip wire on the ECU.


Gearbox is RE5R05A
Gearbox fluid: Nissan matic J (or Nissan matic S, or Nulon synthetic (compatible with nissan C/D/J/K, $16.60perL) or Valvoline synthetic (compatible with nissan D/J/K, $10perL))

Auto trans fluid change interval: 60,000kms

Diff oil change interval: 60,000kms
Diffs require 1.4L each, and factory weight is 80W-90.
Syncro = 50/50 split up to 40 kmp/h then it goes back to normal.
Snow = 50/50 split up to 40kmp/h but starts in 2nd gear and reduces boost.
“ATTESA E-TS system is normally 0:100, but can split up to 50:50. SYNC mode is constant 20:80, but can also do 50:50. SNOW mode appears to be 50:50, but hard to tell, but it does NOT start in 2nd gear. Im guessing that there is a boost limit. ATF 'D' is reccomended, 1.8L is required to fill the system.”

NM35 Radiator Filling

Thought I'd put this Radiator fill guide in here; seems like there's a fair bit of stress in doing this job, and that in turn scares people away from doing relatively simple jobs.

Stolen from V-Series forum; http://www.skylinesa...iunum-radiator/

Well done Nate, hopefully this de-mystifies the procedure a little and the post title will hopefully make it easy to find.

Yeah over heating can be a pain when u dont get all the air out, so get it done right the first time. Here is what you have to do for a correct V35/350GT/G35 coolant flush with no air bubbles (my post on g35driver)Well i got it, ended up doing this, which should be done from step 1:

  1. Wait till car is cooled down
  2. Jack up front or park on step incline
  3. remove rear bleed valve from heater hose
  4. remove rad drain plug with bucket under it
  5. remove rad cap
  6. remove and wash out overflow


  1. Put rad drain plug back in
  2. put bleed plug back in
  3. put over flow container back in
  4. get a long funnel or water bottle or non spill funnel and put tape about 1” from the tip of funnel or on the thread of the bottle until its thick enough to fit snug in the rad neck
  5. with car off fill the overflow to minimum.
  6. with car off slowly poor mixture into funnel wedged in rad with your premixed mixture (i used distilled and water wetter)
  7. Once you see it no longer draining from the funnel grab the lower rad hose and compress and let go a few times and see if anymore drains out, top it up if it all goes
  8. Start the car and slowly keep at least a bit of fluid so that the funnel is at no point completely empty
  9. As you see it no longer draining and staying where it is rev car to 1500-2000 for 30sec and then let idle. Repeat a few times
  10. As soon as you see fluid rise up the funnel and overflow container full turn car OFF
  11. Let rest of the fluid drain, if none is left very slowly poor more in until you cant fit any more in.
  12. You should put rad cap back on, start car again and turn fans on with A/C off and temp as high as it can go and fans on high
  13. Make sure you can feel hot air, that means coolant is circulating and passing hot air out, cold air = air bubble = slightly opening the bleed valve and letting air out until just water comes out.
  14. one you confirm hot air and/or no air from bleed valve turn car OFF
  15. If jacked up put it down and go for a drive, if all good then put under tray back on!
  16. Keep and eye on overflow tank for next week and make sure its at minimum

If I had a hat on I would take it off to you Sir.

Great effort for a result that has been required for a damn long time.

Well done..

I would clarify that that the 30% throttle restriction is not solely related to the brake signal. The primary limiting of the throttle (30% max) relates to being in first gear and under 2600rpm.

The brake mod removes an additional delay to throttle response.

I have 100% throttle at launch, with the car in first... What are you on about Andy?

And you call your hybrid of a car a Stagea.... :P

I suspect that is more to do with other aftermarket electronic godies you have installed.

For a couple of hundred more the Coilovers are great value, and you get a free set of adjustable springs. :P

I know scotty, but my roads are rubbish. Been down the coilover road before.. It's my missus's daily.

The coil-over only sorts the front out.. what about the rear ?

The kit includes rear springs and adjustable shocks. The BC's are not harsh at all, well, that is until you fit poly bushes, swaybars and bracing...

I am still very happy with the BC's four years on.
