Josh R called us up for some free Z Car Garage swag. Rob happily sent out a few things but they never reached Josh. This was unacceptable so Rob sent him a care package with key chains, shirts, lanyards and ensured delivery with the boys in brown.
Josh got finally got his swag and mentioned that he’d be back with his Z33 if he needed some tuning and we are happy to report that we worked on his Z recently! We installed ART pipes, Motordyne MREV manifold /plenum spacer and finished the bolt-ons off with an UPREV tune.
Here are the ART pipes in place of the factory cats:
On the dyno we started with a baseline of 227hp/215tq and after bolt-on/tuning ended up with 254hp/233tq to the wheels:
Here is a breakdown of the bolt-ons and UPREV tuning.
Baseline to plenum spacer/manifold shows slight peak gains but significantly more midrange power:
UPREV tuning maximizes these bolt-ons yielding +6hp/7tq. Also note the increased rev limit:
The ART pipes really help in upper rev range increasing hp by 12hp. A final UPREV tuning session adds even more hp/tq:
Thank you Josh for coming to ZCG!
David Q is a new customer and came to Z Car Garage for some bolt-ons on his 370z. We installed a Berk cat-back exhaust:
Stillen intakes and Motordyne M370z intake manifold:
On the dyno the motor dyne intake increased mid to upper rev range torque:
With the Berk exhaust and UPREV tuning even more low and high rpm hp/tq gains were seen:
Final results of 308hp/263tq to the wheels are improvements of +6hp/18tq. More importantly than peak gains, check out the significant gains in hp/tq from 3krpm all the way to redline where the Z makes almost +25hp/tq!
