  1. Maybe he got at your in cabin air filter and shredded it up trying to make a nest. It’s an easy and cheap part to replace. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. .....and the fun begins. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Awesome! Thanks brother![emoji106] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Interesting. I wonder if you could get any specific info. Like dimensions or part number he used and how he went about mounting it and fitment. Close to stock dimensions or oversized? Single fan or dual? Was it actually a Ron Davis radiator? Any info would be appreciated. Thanks! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Living is SoCal and running 35”tires could have been part of the problem. I had some overheating problems on the trail, uphill, last summer in the heat plus long slow climbs that lead me to a blown head gasket that was very insignificant at first and slowly got worse. I’m currently rebuilding my motor(230,000mi) and thinking more towards extra protection from similar conditions. I was looking into running a turbo kit for a G35/350Z with the same VQ35de but the kit was very expensive and would require a ton of custom fab and ECU tuning as well. The stock radiator is only 6/8” thick aftermarket is 2” thick and approximately the same height and width plus electric cooling fan. Probably will only require custom brackets and maybe hose modification. The obd2 app sounds interesting though Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Here’s what I’m thinking might work well. 25”x16”x5.5”(including fan) Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Anyone have any experience with an aftermarket high performance radiator? I’m thinking I’d like to upgrade to a Ron Davis radiator. This may require eliminating the overflow tank and making some custom brackets to properly mount it. I found two roughly the same height and with but with much more added thickness and electric cooling fan included. They are NOT inexpensive but if possible might be well worth it. Thoughts, comments, suggestions welcome. Thx guys! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Those look nice. Too bad those bolt heads are not flush and or countersunk. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Crank time. Pistons and rings. Crank. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Almost don’t stripping the block. Found some compression leak and as suspected blown head gasket. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Going deep Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Ugh.... Getting ready for complete engine rebuild. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Looks like it’s detached from the sway bar end link. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. I bought my pathfinder new in Dec of ‘00. It’s a ‘01. I did anything but baby it and even properly maintain it as I was fairly young back then and didn’t know much better nor have money to stay up on all required maint. I just early this year had the trans rebuilt at 220,000 miles. From what I’ve heard the transmission in these is close to bulletproof. Not to mention I run 35” tires which has to add stress on the trans. 1,100$ to rebuild and it’s been good as new since then. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
