Question

Just thought I'd let those of you who maybe interested know, I will have the MREV2 & 5/16th spacer by Motordyne installed in a day or so. I'm looking forward to the intended results. Currently the only engine related mods I have is a fujita cold air intake and the Tanabe Touring Medallion catback exhaust with Tanabe Y-pipe. "quite a nice exhaust". I own a 06 Z base model manual.

Any thoughts are welcome...
Keep us updated! I'd be very interested in your results. Are you going to get a tune/ECU Reflash?

I like that answer Toykilla... so with the kind of mods I mentioned, Motordyne MREV2/5/16th spacer, cold air intake an catback exhaust. Do you think it's necessary to have this reflash done. "just curious" because at this point money is an issue.

I had my motordyne parts installed at the local motorsport shop. MREV2 and 5/16th spacer. I live in NO CAL by the way and the folks at motorsport technique do really good work. The install was a breeze for them and I enjoyed watching them do it.
As for gains... YES very noticable!! I especially like the tack moving past 4500 rpm quickly and smoothly. I may have the shop dyno the car before the year is over, the cost is $75.00. Perhaps I'll have a UR crank pulley installed next... I would also consider reflash tuning ECU etc... but it just seems too costly. just not sure, besides the car is running really well thus far, heck they run really well just plain old stock!!!

feedback if you will

Congratz on your purchase. I too recently ordered a Motordyne 5/16" Plenum Spacer and Motordyne MREV2 for my 06' Z. That would be my first mod to my Z apart from the grounding kit which I've alrady installed a couple of months ago. Anyway, I have a question, perhaps Toykilla can help answer. Do I need to reflash/ reset my ECU after installing the Spacer and MREV2? My car is completely bone stock.

Oh any Merry X'mas guys.

Thanks... I once ran across a thread a couple of months ago describing perhaps how to reset the ECU, it might have been a wiki tutorial. Not sure though. If you have,nt installed the motodyne parts yet you will experience a real difference!!
I too am interested in reflashing my ECU. I have CAI, Catback exhaust and of course the motordyne mrev2, 5/16 spacer.

I also read info regarding ECU reflash may not be necessary particularly with bolt on mods because as I understand... it's pretty costly and some were dissapointed with results. What about the apexi SAFC II??? I would certainly like more information on this.

"Merry new year"

You won't need a reflash unless you also stack up several mods like exhaust, test pipes and headers.
But a ECU reset certaintly won't hurt.

Happy New Year!
