"Straight-line acceleration is probably the first aspect of automotive performance that any intelligent driver gets bored with."  Peter Gregg 

  • Any day your Z is running strong is a good day
  • Better is the enemy of good
  • Be ready to drop $1000 at any time on your Z
  • The more work you can do yourself, the happier you will be
  • Buy a factory service manual, if you can find one
  • Driving three hours one-way to a good Z mechanic is worth it
  • Don't try to strip your Z down, lose weight instead
  • A ten pound loss roughly gains one horsepower
  • A temporal association does not prove cause and effect
  • The best year Z made is the best shape Z you can find
  • All Z's are haunted by gremlins
  • When in doubt, use Search on TT.net
  • You are driving a 10+ year old high-performance car, things will break
  • Old timing belts have looked brand new, except for the spot where they were broken in two
  • The car does not make the man, the man owns the car
  • Do not unecessarily increase the number of moving parts 
  • Reduce the number of moving parts whenever feasible
  • Oil additives are temporary solutions at best 
  • Don't take your Z too seriously, it's just a car. 
  • Don't underestimate the pure pleasure of bone stock
  • Wave at your fellow Z drivers (240-350 and Inifiniti G35)
  • Don't get your undies in a bunch if a Z driver doesn't wave back
  • The most important part of a house is the garage
  • Keeping track of the cost of your mods is pointless
  • You say knock, I say tick - a sound is worth a thousand words
  • All ticks and knocks deserve a pull of the timing belt cover
  • Boost jet size = spark plug gap (don't ask me why)
  • A 50 HP gain deserves a .004" decrease in spark plug gap
  • If your car hesitates or stumbles, first try different gas
  • Fuel injector cc size roughly equals the engine HP the injectors can support
  • Tires and exhaust were not meant to be pretty
  • Buy a Dremel tool
  • A clean engine is nice, a good running engine is better
  • Toluene is good
  • When you hear hoofbeats, think of horses before zebras
  • These three things will make your turbos last forever:
               Change oil at least every 3000 miles, preferably with synthetic.
After a cold start, don't boost until your oil pressure drops to normal.
Don't boost during the last five minutes of a drive.  If you must boost near the end of a drive, let the car idle for a few minutes before shutting off the engine.  Or you can buy a turbo timer, but I hate those things :c)
  • Pulling the engine is easier than changing the spark plugs (not really)
  • Investigate, don't ignore, any new sound coming from your Z
  • Flow through a pipe is inversely related to the FOURTH power of the radius
  • Physics rules all
  • Knowing what you don't know is harder than knowing what you do know
  • See one, do one, teach one
  • Those who can, do, those who cannot, teach 
  • If you won't try then I must scry
  • Caveat emptor, especially when buying on the Internet
  • The problem with opinions on style is that not all style is opinion
  • Resistance of a right angle bend in an exhaust pipe = 15 feet of straight pipe
  • The left O2 sensor is 1/2 the price of the right, but the left fits both sides
  • Don't swerve to miss any animal smaller than a miniature horse
  • Around here, drivers side is left, passenger is right
  • Get back to me when you know the difference between an A/F and A/R ratio
  • Everything should be as simple as it is, but not simpler
  • Not everything that can be counted counts
  • Not everything that counts can be counted

The last three lines are quotes from Albert Einstein
