My car gives instant fuel economy readout in L/100 km. Racking up more city kilometres recently, my econ shows 8.1 L/100 km.

Though I do look forward to when electric is viable. They're fast and have sooooo much torque.

Finished my arts and crafts project. Excuse the dirt, I took pictures before cleaning up.

I hacked my car's computer system to make it realize it does, in fact, have a navigation system. $20 ODBII USB cable unlocking a $795 factory option. Now I just need a nav SD card.

Never a dull moment working on the Nissan.

I replaced the EFI, battery, alternator, and knock sensor harnesses on the 300ZX to get it ready for Zcon in June (I'm comin' back to Austin, Og!)

Here's the timing held in place with some maple and vise grips. The tiny sensor in the valley between the two cylinder banks is the knock sensor, and I had to get to it to replace the subharness (it's impossible to get at with the lower plenum on the car.

My buddy came over after he liberated his Skyrine from his mechanic's shop. He has small Asian hands, and a strong desire to not bring shame to his family.

RE: Attention whore thread
My list o' shite to do on the Z32 is getting short.
* Whole mess o' wiring harnesses is done
* Air conditioning is charged
* All the painted metal in the engine bay is powdercoated

Left to do:
* front brakes (new hardware for the brake hats, and new pads for the brembos)
* AEM V2 ECU and tune (convert to manifold pressure from mass airflow, to wideband O2 from narrow, and gain ECU boost control)
* swap suspension, since mine's all from 1992.

To the last one, I've got some overnight parts from Japan, yo.

Make sure you've got a long enough extension cord for your leaf blower, and enough charge for your blackberry's super-accurate GPS.

Anywhere from 10 to 50 miles.

Today, we went on the long side of that, up to Ski Santa Fe
