Anyone have similar problem or can shed some light?
My brake and battery warning light flickers especially when the APS TT spools.
If I push real hard, the lights (both lights) will stay on temporarily.
This occured only after the APS TT install (no other mods yet).

Not sure about the APS but with the Greddy kit you put a check valve on the brake boost line you might want to check on that part of your install.

Appreciate the help! I'll have the installer check on it and post next week after I get my APS exhaust installed.

Could it be that the alternator did not get re-grounded to the engine block during the install? The 350z manual says the alternator is grounded to the engine block.

Not sure, why would they have messed with the alternator?

Just got back from the installer and he says its fixed. A wire was knocked loose during the install. He said it was something on the inside of the car. I'll get back with specifics as soon as I find out more.

Now if I could get this gas smell out. Their checking on the fuel regulator for me.

Good.

I have heard of the fuel compalint from another APS owner, it is probably because of the work done with the fuel tank.  Mine smelled for a couple of daya after I did the fuel pump install.

Just got my car back with the APS exhaust installed also and the problems seem to be all fixed. This is what my installer told me.
1) Brake and battery flicker - loose wire during install.
2) Gas fumes in cabin - fuel regulator leak.
The car runs great and the best dyno is at 379 rwhp on an inertia dyno. Now I have a problem with check engine soon light. My installer says there isn't anything to do about it. The codes has something to do with misfiring and running too rich. Anyone having similar problem?
Thanks for everyone's help.
