Slow n Steady X build
« on: April 24, 2013, 09:38:06 PM »
Well the day after I purchased my Xterra, I went ahead and did the RAD MOD and today we added a second transmission cooler. I am still debating whether or not to put a fan on there. So here are pics from the day I got her and I will be posting updates  ;D

I honestly just want some factory alloy wheels, it scary when they do not say how much those things weigh.

Pitsnipe: DO IT! It was inexpensive and very easy to do.

AZXterra410 : Thanks! Now I need to get up to mesa and snag those coils from you!

All I can say is I am happy I do not have to deal with an HPOP or fuel bowl anymore.. the list goes on.

you'll have more than enough HP to pull those rims I didn't even feel it. I went from steel to SE rims and the ride was much nicer on the highway.

Since you guys are on the wheel n tires topic, thinking about picking up some stock titan wheels and tires to save my mud t's while driving in town. I'm pretty sure I have enough room to run em but not sure if it's the same lug pattern? Can pick up a set for a few hundred on craigslist. Does anyone know the pattern of a titan?

Sorry for the blur... something is up with my 28mm lens :(
Spacers came in (these won't go on until I go pick up AZXterra410's coil assemblies)

These are USA made T6061 Aluminium EBAY specials! Kind of a test run.

Oil sender switch/sensor came in too, my symptom was oil pressure on H all the time.

The Old: Same thing happened on my diesel, seals tear etc.. and oil gets to the connector end causing it to fail. This is a ROCKAUTO part, seems well built and for half the cost of the dealer.. if it fails I could buy another and still have only bought one from nissan  ;D
