Well actually Bill is slower than all of us, but that'* probably due to some childhood trauma. But, his car sure is faster than all of ours.

I'm ribbing ya Bill, and you know it. Your Ei is been proven to be the one fast daily driver. I dont seriously think I can clip the bottom side of 13. But then again I'm confident to be way under the 14.6 proven another stock GXP member. You'd have to flinch or break something for me to nose you out.

My head bolts are fine, and with alot of nitrous bottles drained my 4T80 doesnt like wimpy shifts between 3&4 but stills moves fine under WOT with 44,000 hard miles on it. Garage time~0

Why are you getting oil restricted pushrods for the cam? The cam is way at the bottom and simply has differently sized lobes but imitates the stock cam in how it fits and operates. Oil restricted pushrods are thought to be a good idea for roller rockers because the roller tips don't need as much oil. I think it wears the springs too much to run with restricted pushrods because they don't get enough oil to cool off, and they become brittle.

What does a 350z run on the 1/4 mile? With a smaller pulley, PCM, shift kit, headers, and a high flow cat, you should be good to go. The mufflers don't give you any improvement except for sound. Stockers shouldn't be an issue at all.
