Title: What have you done to your X lately?
Post by: Whattha(Nik) on May 05, 2014, 08:20:52 AM
I know this is a stolen topic from the national site but it is a very popular thread on there and one I enjoy looking through.  So I figured why not start a local one for all of us.  I will start it off.

I ordered an intake manifold spacer from the group buy on the national site.  I have been wanting to get one for a while now and am excited to see the power increase.

Hmmm, let's see where do I begin, lol.  I got new rims and bed lined them, got frontier step rails and relocated some mounts for them to work and bed lined those, and just re bed lined the rails I got from AZXterra410 and just installed those.

AC stopped being cold, I put refrigerant in it the other day and heard a hissing noise. I traced the leak and sealed it with JB weld. Added more refrigerant and it works fine.

Pretty lucky

Well I scheduled an appointment to have a better flowing Y-pipe put in on my X this Thursday.  I also just received my intake manifold spacer in the mail.  I am hoping to install that Thursday as well.   ;D
Title: Re: What have you done to your X lately?
Post by: Whattha(Nik) on May 15, 2014, 03:48:14 PM
Okay, Y-Pipe is done.  It was pieced together and does not look the best but no one will see it and it does flow a lot better.  The Intake Manifold Spacer was a disaster to install.  Not because of the product but one of the intake studs was an absolute nightmare to take out.  It was stuck in the manifold and took about 4 hours to get out.  Over all though the X does feel stronger.  I definitely feel more of a pull off the line and curious to see how this affected my milage.

Next up is switching the tranny and rear diff to Royal Purple.

Finally cleaned up my grille.  The stock one was getting so faded and I have been wanting to do this for a while.  What a pain to do though.  I think it looks better so worth it I guess.

The pain was separating the front silver piece from the black backing piece. Then having to cut the "honey comb" out of the back piece. Not much to attach the mesh screen to either. Had to get a little creative.

Id say a good 3-5 hours if you change the waterpump to. I didnt cause my coolant is perfect and there is no corrosion whatsoever.  Probably should have but o well was just worried about the belt.

So far these guys have been a 100% pleasure to do business with. Their schedule for work and delivery of the product was almost dead on even considering Chris' wife had a baby last week and he's been home taking care of the kids while she recuperates.

And an FYI for those interested and who haven't seen it on their FB page, Chris mentioned they'll be releasing all their products (with the exception of rock sliders) in aluminum versions beginning early next year.  The rock sliders will remain all steel for obvious reasons.  From what he told me the aluminum versions (bumpers, etc.) will be roughly a third the weight of steel while retaining roughly 80% of steel's strength.  Prices for the aluminum are estimated about 30% higher per product than steel but shipping will likely be less.

Title: Re: What have you done to your X lately?
Post by: AZ-Ted on April 05, 2015, 06:47:33 PM
No, it's hollow inside.  It's an oxygen sensor extension, and it keeps the sensor away from the exhaust flow.  This helps keep the check engine light off.

When I had my 8th gen civic Si we had to run the same thing they called them O2 bungs. They fool the sensor into thinking the cats are there when you remove them so you don't have your CEL. You can also remove the CEL with a tuning program.

Also removed the brush guard,  and kinda fixed the stock horn since the horn kit I bought was a fail.

I kind of figured. Is it on there all the time? I have/had lot's of those plastic cans saved up and I'm always looking for ways to reuse them. I've also been trying to think of a way to protect the starter on the 1st gen, mine has been replaced a few times due to product failure and the last one the shop didn't put it together very well, so it's exposed more than it should be.
Title: Re: What have you done to your X lately?
Post by: Conundrum on July 31, 2015, 07:06:40 AM
I actually forgot it was on there, but since it doesn't rub or interfere with anything I just left it. It's been there for almost a year. Maybe more now that I think about it. haha

I use those coffee containers for all kinds of stuff. :)

I've never heard of a starter going bad because of water hitting it on the X but it could happen. I know I've done a starter and it isn't a trail friendly repair.

I have a new alternator ready to go on, but I was just using up the old one. I've heard much noisier bearings so I think it'll get me another trip. I hope. lol

If you're wondering, you can get about 50-100 miles on a dead alt and the battery alone. We just would stop, throw the jumper cables on and let it charge off my alt for 10-15 min. I've helped a couple of people get home that way.  :o

Removed the front sway bar today because it was affecting the steering, as the bushings are toast. Also, wrapped up a busted inner cv boot with plastic wrap and duct tape until it can get repaired. Added a bumpstop to the cb antenna. Removed one wheel lock ( it is now stuck in the removal tool). And lastly have diagnosed that most likey our veer right is due to a front passenger brake issue, and not a bent crossmember or swaybar.

geesh

Put the sway bar back on with new end link and bracket bushings. Seems much better now, just gotta fix the brakes and upgrade the shocks.

So, I crawled under the X to check on the clicking/popping noise, nothing visible. So I greased the stops, (Not sure that was gonna do much, but on one of the other xterra forums they did that), checked for anything loose and more broken boots. None, other than the other which was already known.

Then I removed the rear sway bar just for kicks. Now it's already out of the way for the new Bilsteins...

Mine have both been removed for quite some time now. Your not really going to notice the rear. The front will take some getting used to. The body will roll a lot more. Should have any issues driving that fast. 75-80 is my normal freeway speed.

In a straight line, no. With the front off at 75-80 mph, a sudden steering change will bring the pucker.
 Also, at speed on long turns, it feels like the truck is riding off the frame.

Take off your rear, ditch it. Leave on your front if you don't wheel every weekend..

Well, I reshaped (nerfed) my nerf bars - now they look like bananas.  Dented the rear bumper fascia.  Scraped the nose.  Left two mud flaps on the trail - found one and picked it up.  Put a golf ball sized dent in the rocker panel.  Tested the skip plates numerous times.

So to clean 'er up a bit, I stripped off the remaining mud flaps, removed the nerf bars, and put on SasaSliders.  Don't know if he's decided on a name yet, so that's what I'll call them.  See pic . . .

This past week. I have replace my intake hose with an OEM replica. I say replica because it wasn't exactly the same spec, but it fits, and is working like a charm.

Also, retaped a good portion of my engine wiring harnesses, and replaced some of the plastic looms, while I spliced/replaced/relocated the knock sensor.

Replaced the PCV valve. Easy fix and cheap part. However, had to go walk the aisle of hoses behind the counter at Autozone because whilst removing the old valve the hose disintegrated. There is no obvious part for oem replacement that I could find for today. The one I found worked, it was some random molded heater hose that I had to cut maybe a 1/2" off one end because it was too long.

Bolted to the frame, and they come through the rear bumper. I used a dremmel to cut out the slits, and they come straight through.

Thanks! I am sticking with a black / blue / orange theme

Installed front lift and rear shackles that I got from Duncan and Cody.  Took four hours to do the rear because I was missing the upper bolt and sleeves and didn't figure out I couldn't reuse the old bolts until I had it off the X.  Then the front was a bitch - sway bar wouldn't let go, the strut top nuts were over-torqued, and I sheared a socket taking off the lower strut nut/bolt.  I made use of the "Guaranteed Forever" promise today :)  The front only took four hours also.  Yeah, what could go wrong on a 45 minute job?

I gave my x a quick oil change, took in a flat for a replacement (still waiting for it back), and put on the heavy duty bumper. Needs tweaking.

Adjusted the timing, it was off about 7 degrees. Also,got a new windshield. No more pitted glass. AND BONUS! FREE tinted windows all around. Didn't cost a penny.

Who is everyone using for cross drilled and slotted rotors?  I don't want to break the bank, but also dont want a warped set in 6 months that isn't covered by warranty.

Nice job. 

I haven't posted here for a while and I've been busy so here's an update.  Dimpled and slotted rotors up front, new pads, rotors, and stainless break lines on all 4.  HID upgrade to the overheads, new LED rear and side lights.  New rear leaf bushings, abs line extended, longer shocks and at the furthest shackle mount with 2 AALs at this point.  I think that is most of it.

Finally got around to hardwiring my CB into my X. Tapped a fuse for the power socket, and it works perfectly! Wires aren't hidden exactly perfect, but for the time I had today, works for me.

Now to get around to tuning the damn thing..

Did an oil change on the Big Yellow X. good for another 5000 miles.   Also been looking at way to do a bumper mouth and/or a post lights.  We will see what I can come up with....

I replaced my alternator with a 120 amp 2002 Nissan Quest alternator.  It bolted right up although I had to go get a slightly longer belt and a different ground wire screw because the threads were different.

On Tuesday, I had to replace my battery again. I got two years out of the old one from Sam's Club, I had nothing but trouble with it from the beginning. I went with a Duralast Gold from Autozone this time. I've had good experience with them in the past.

Swapped Alternator out that was from Mud (Steve N4W) that I washed thoroughly and with copious amounts of WD40 to get working again because mine was making a ton of noise. Bearing went bad.

In the process discovered my airbox was just not sealing anymore from excessive cracking and installed a cone filter and housing that I got from DBAX many years ago. Wow, sounds like it has more HP, but I know better. :) Also noticed the fender baffle was about to fall out so I removed all that stock crap.

While I had the front tire off, I happened to notice I lost the Bottom Shock bolt during the Fat Tire run. lol Anyone have one? I'll have to order one or cut the captive nut off and use a real bolt with a cotter pin and castle nut.

Still have to take all the skids off and remove the mud, I'm sure I'd be 20 pounds lighter if I did. lol

Yes it does! I drove it around yesterday and under load, you can definitely hear the difference.

Thank you again!

I'm going to block off the holes from the original air intake location in the fender and custom fabricate something to try and funnel air in from in front of the radiator instead. Not going to worry about it until gas prices come back down or the temperature isn't so blasted hot out. Well at least the latter will happen eventually, even in Phx. :o

Got a Shrockworks Rear Bumper for a steal a few weeks ago and put it on. Added some clevis shackles and also installed an LED black third brake light housing. The big red one looked awful.
