So cool to see you built it and enjoyed it!  Nice swap!

That flexy shaft thingy was awesome!!  The whole time I'm like how in the world are they going to bolt that up and get it connected to the alternator!  Looks factory when done.  If there is a hard way to do things, and an EXTREMELY time consuming hard way to do things, these guys figure out how to make it more difficult and take longer LOL

Was it a messy 'breakup' from who he paid to do this?  Seems like something done in haste maybe out of spite for no payment?  They can't be that dumb can they?

That is awesome!  They can be pretty reliable when done right, I wouldn't hesitate to drive mine anywhere, just keep a eye out for the rain, my NT01's don't like interstates and rain!  LOL

The 350z swap is just another 3500+ lb car with 400hp.  Doesn't really do anything well.  The FD on the other hand; the LS turns it into a 2800lb nimble rocket ship that can compete with most modern super cars.  The LS makes everything about the FD better.  Obviously I'm biased but if your going through the work to do a swap, end with something that makes the original car MUCH better.  JMO

All true if it were actually sealed tight.  By law there has to be built in gas cap vents.  I forget where I saw that, I think on the Stant literature in the fine print.  Dunno seems to work I keep checking of the tank is moving at all and nothing.  I should pressure test it to see when it releases and when it opens for vacuum.

Also checking out Group A motoring.  They seem to be top quality without a single fitment issue that I can find on the net anyway.

I had a gutted vented cap, and non PTFE gas lines and my garage wreaked.  I did some research and found that all gas caps included non vented do actually have a vent built in by Federal Law.  It just takes a lot of pressure in the tank to release.  So I tried just a $8 stant non-vented cap.  My tank is also sealed (ie your curled up rubber hose)  It almost entirely eliminated the smell.  Just be careful opening the cap, there is a lot of pressure that comes out on hot days and low fuel. 

It feels like a bad solution to me, and I wanted to have a charcoal and purge system but so far I haven't found any ill effects.  I keep checking the tank to see if the tank is 'bellowing' or anything and it never was.  For long term storage i put my vented gutted cap back on, but during the summer the non vented cap seems to work ok.   

My other solution was this aftermarket pressure vent:

I was also going to replace the fuel lines with PTFE ones but as stated I am getting the desired results with no ill effects (yet) from a $8 investment.

Looking at some carbon side skirts and rear diffuser, 'possibly' rear duck tail spoiler.  Any great options?  I would support Ronin in a heartbeat but I dont think they offer feed style sides and rear diffuser?  I see the eBay stuff is that crap?  Shine Auto the best?  Thank you!

Monster stage 2.5 I think and about that 450 Whp now with NT01 that are almost impossible to break free.  Clutch is awesome.
