Hey everyone,

Oh I totally am. I have warranty for 75,000 miles. Right now I am at 42,000. By the end of the summer it will be over. Then I/H/E and a tuning solution with AEM Wideband.

Only the Nismo Cap if it is a different pressure rating, which I think it is.

Where did you get the cap. That cap is NOT an original Nismo item, but a cap with a sticker. I have the same cap, but with the SE-R emblem. This is from the maker:

The Vision Motorworks Hi-Pressure Radiator Cap increases the pressure inside the radiator, thus raising the coolant boiling point and improving cooling efficiency. The open valve pressure is 1.3 kg/cm² compared to the standard 1.1 kg/cm². Easy Install. Made of 100% Stainless Steel , Will Never Rust or Corrode.


The pressure rating is indeed different, which may void the warranty.

Well I figured King was serious, I was just a little taken back. I also figured that it was not a genuine Nismo Cap but it looks good and does the same thing. It's funny to me because I bought the cap and put it on well over a year ago figuring it's just a cap no biggie. Been to the dealer numerous times. I guess I will just switch caps before I go to the dealer from now on.

Well...I learned something today.

I'm serious, people have actually being denied the warranty because of that cap. Just replace it whenever you take it in for service.

Well it will be a couple months yet considering this huge snow storm currently moving throw.

I'm pumped. I have had those rims in storage ever since buying the car back in 2007. I think I was the first to buy them for the B16...however I was poor as shit at the time and it has taken me this long just to get tires to put them on. Also I figured I have this set of wheels that are Gram Light 57F's...I need to do this right; so did tons of research on what tire I wanted.

Tire choice over the course of a year came down between:
-Falken Azenis
-Dunlop Direzza Star Spec Z1
-Toyo R888 (Wet Dream)
-Michelin Pilot Sport Cup (Super Wet Dream)
-Yokohama Advan Neova

Obviously some more insanely expensive than others, I settled on a high bang for your buck summer tire with the RT-615 and it isn't going to hurt immensely when I have to replace them ever couple of years.

Once my tax return comes in I will order and install the Tanabe GF210 springs and I will order Ray's Engineering Lugs and Valve Stems, probably in red, it seems to be the theme I have going with my car.

I promise ou the star spec z1's own the azenis(i know im repeating myself). We have a local track we do(course stays the same) and i knocked 3 seconds off my time switching. plus the azenis are the most horrible fast wearing tire i've ever used

Huh, thought they worked those issues out after the RT-215. Well, I am going to see how they work for me, when the time comes to replace them then I will take a even closer look at the Dunlop Direzza Z1 Star Spec.
