How to remove the intake and change the gaskets on a Chevrolet Vortec 5.7L 350.
How to remove the upper and lower intake manifolds on a GM 5.7L or 4.3L
engine. This truck's lower intake gaskets had sprung a leak and I needed to
change it. When changing the intake gaskets, it's not necessary to remove
the upper intake, but I showcased how to do it anyway for people that need
to change the spider injectors or the upper seal.
2014 Nissan GT-R NISMO Development Story
REVEALED: NISSAN GT-R NISMO
-World premiere of race-inspired version of Nissan's legendary GT-R
-600hp (441kw) for blistering performance
-Advanced aerodynamics generating additional 100kg of downforce at 300km/h
(186mph) for exceptional road-holding
YOKOHAMA, Japan (November 19, 2013) - Records fall and dreams come true
with the debut of the Nissan GT-R Nismo. This race-oriented model delivers
"factory tuned" supercar dynamics with revolutionary enhanced aerodynamics
and ultra-precise handling. The Nissan GT-R is already established as one
of the best performing supercars in the automotive sphere, and now Nissan
has drawn on decades of racing experience gathered by Nismo, the brand's
motorsport specialists, to develop the ultimate Nissan GT-R.
The Nissan GT-R Nismo features exclusive styling that embraces the
longstanding racing philosophy of form following function. It has numerous
motorsports-inspired technologies to enhance the car's performance through
optimised aerodynamics, suspension and powertrain, creating a well-balanced
machine that is at home on both the road and track.
The Nissan GT-R Nismo will be available in Japan in late February 2014,
U.S. and Europe later in 2014.
Nissan CEO Carlos Ghosn says this is the fastest Nissan GT-R ever. "With a
7:08.679 lap time, we can authoritatively say that the Nissan GT-R Nismo*
holds the volume production car lap record at the Nürburgring
Nordschliefe, which is the gold standard of high performance achievement."
Nissan GT-R Nismo Overview - Flagship of the Nismo lineup
1. Mechanical Features
Nissan GT-R Nismo employs innovation, uncompromising engineering and
motorsports-inspired technologies to achieve new levels of power, speed and
-Under the hood, the 3.8-litre V6 VR38DETT engine benefits from the
know-how that Nismo has gained from participating in such events as the
world-renowned Nürburgring 24 hour race. Engine power has risen and is now
rated at 600hp (441kw) and 481 lb ft (652 Nm) of torque.
-New high-flow, large diameter turbochargers, which are used for GT3 racing,
improve breathing, while optimised individual ignition timing control for
each cylinder and upgraded fuel pump improve combustion.
-The suspension setup,is inspired by that of the Nismo racing GT-R and
tuned for stunning agility, road-holding and handling finesse, without
-The springs and custom-developed Bilstein DampTronic dampers in the front
and rear suspension are specially tuned to deliver exceptional grip levels
and progressive handling response at the limit. Three suspension modes can
be selected: Comfort, Normal and R, for circuit applications.
-Exclusive Nismo tyres - developed by Dunlop - exhibit outstanding grip and
handling characteristics. Front: 255/40 ZRF20; rear 285/35 ZRF20.
-Specially-developed links fitted to the front double wishbone suspension
increase castor trail to optimise wheel position during high-G cornering
and improve straight-line and cornering stability. Additionally, large
high-rigidity bolts are used to increase stiffness of the wheel-hub
-To minimize body-roll during cornering and changes of direction, the
Nissan GT-R Nismo features a 17.3 mm hollow rear anti-roll bar which raises
roll stiffness while reducing weight.
-Increased rigidity in the bodyshell is achieved using adhesive bonding in
addition to spot welding leading to precise suspension response under
extreme load, the Nismo "factory tuned" enhancement.
2. Exterior design - Exclusive styling with improved aerodynamics
-Using the latest Computational Fluid Dynamic simulation techniques to
analyse airflow, Nismo has developed an aero package that improves
road-holding, minimises the negative impact of drag, while giving the car a
menacing and muscular appearance.
-Together, the front bumper, engine undercover strake and carbon rear
spoiler increase downforce, lowering the centre of gravity and generating
an additional 100kg (at 300km/h) compared to the freshly updated 2014 GT-R
model. The car's aerodynamic characteristics are tuned to ensure the
downforce is equally spread front to rear at all speeds for progressive
handling characteristics. A widened front bumper configuration and
elongated yet tapered rear bumper design keep the drag to Cd 0.26, the same
as that of 2014 Nissan GT-R.
-The Nissan GT-R Nismo will be available in five body colors: Brilliant
White Pearl, Meteor Flake Pearl Black, Ultimate Metallic Silver and Vibrant
Red. And unique to the GT-R Nismo model, a Dark Matte Grey accentuates the
car's imposing exterior muscularity.
-The GT-R Nismo's black 6-spoke wheels are inspired by Nissan's legendary
GT500 race car.
Nissan 350z Cold Air Intake
The Momentum Performance Cold Air Intake for the Nissan 350z is one of the
few on the market that places the air filter in a high pressure zone in the
front of the car, allowing for coldest air to be utilized in the engine for

1997 Nissan 2.4L Intake Gasket Replacement (Part 1) -EricTheCarGuy
In a way this is a sequel to the Nissan Altima Misfire Diagnosis Video. It
would have been a REALLY long video if I posted both together. In fact I
had to split this video into 2 parts as it is. This job isn't for the weak
at heart. It took me most of the day to get it done. Most of the issues
involve accessibility to the fasteners. Some are stuck down in there
pretty good. I'm told this is a common issue with the 2.4L engine so you
may run into this at some point. If you decide to do the repair yourself,
this video can walk you through the process. For now, sit back, and watch
me suffer. Here's some useful links for you.

2008 Infiniti G37S with Stillen Gen 3 Ultra Long Intakes: Review by Nguyễn Lam-Sơn
UPDATE: My car's newest lights, will be making a video soon! Pics are on
page 1 & 3
This is a review I made on the Stillen Gen 3 Ultra Long Intakes for the
2008 G37S Coupe. Here I show how the car sounds before and after the
installation of the intakes. I do not own any of the music tracks in the
video, all of those are credited to their owners. I also have a few
pictures of my car showing some of the exterior mods for it as well.
Please watch, subscribe, comment, and leave me some feedback. Tell me what
you think of my car and if you have any opinions or even ideas for what
should come next. I will do more reviews in the futures as new
modifications are completed.
