Oh god yea don't get under that. Scissor jacks are NOT safe for anything other than changing a tire.

Well i finally changed the 7AT trans fluid yesterday. Yeah i made a mess when dropping the pan,But it's worth the $$ I saved. I used victory's method with the weed sprayer and the Assenmacher ATF 180 adapter. worked great.

Here's the link if anyone is thinking of doing this.

Single change or triple? Any notable drivability change?

Thanks thanks! I liked the look of the coupe wheels but I was finally able to sell my Cobra and decided to buy some wheels a little more to my liking. I'm thinking of changing my plates again tho haha, but would leave the black and yellow look.

The wheels are:

19x9 +30 up front
19x9.5 +39 in the rear.

The tires are the Sumitomo HTR Z III

245/40 in the front
275/35 in the rear.

I had gotten conflicting info about these wheels from 3 different tire shops but also lots of helpful info on here too. A local mom and pop shop ended up giving me a really great deal and since they weren't 100% sure even after contacting TSW that these would fit, told me that I wouldn't have to buy them if the fit was off. Luckily the fit was just right.

Once I get it washed I'll contribute to the wheels thread!

I did the triple change. I would say the shifts are smoother.

How many miles when you did yours? And which ATF did you use? So glad I did mine about 25k miles ago, still performing well

Sae corrected should be around 304whp. This was before my lightweight stillen pulley, 3.69 gears and refinished catback. Next comes a tune. Dyno doesn't show it but shop temp was a smidge over 100 degrees that day.

I love when Cars & Coffee is held at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

Such a great venue for C&C.

Had a great turn out today for our local club too. In all I believe we had 15 cars with us.







Also as a bonus there was a local Porsche club that had rented the speedway for the weekend so we had cars ripping around the track also.

Feal 441 Coilovers g37xS

Had the new Feal 441 coilovers installed yesterday as well as SPC front control arms and 5mm spacers all around. Rear control arms will be installed tomorrow. Its too low right now and im not a big fan of the "tucked" look so it will be raised up about a half an inch tomorrow as well. Havent had any time to push the car properly so Im going to do that today and ill report back. The short amount of time driving it home from the shop revealed a much higher level of composure over road imperfections when going straight or cornering. It soaks bumps up very nicely. Way more of a refined ride compared to the stock struts and shocks with the Swifts on there. Selling the Swifts as well if anyone is interested.

Nice work Jake, be sure to post up a review in the review section when you get some time on them, always great to have more options in coilovers for sure!

BTW, what vendor did you go with?

Looking really good, Jake. Looks like you can go a little wider with your spacers though to get those rears nice and flush!

Thanks, will do. I actually purchased them directly through FEAL. The kit for the g37x sedan had just come out when I discovered it a little over a month ago. I'm not aware of anyone else who may be selling it currently.

Thank you. Yeah I think I could have safely gone with 10mm based on my calculations but I wanted to play it safe this first go round. My mechanic buddy didn't have time to do the rear control arms. There is too much camber there in those pictures since it hasn't had a new alignment yet. The camber is creating that tucked look which is only exaggerated by how low it is. Once it's aligned and the camber is lessened the top of the wheel will sit more flush thus eliminating some of that side gap. I'll reasses the need for the bigger spacers at the end of the day today once the car is all squared properly with rear control arms installed, new alignment and raising the car up about a half inch. I'm scraping things so easily and it's sketching me out big time. It wasn't suppose to be set that low.
