After hearing the news that the ZCG 370z made some pretty nice power gains, a new customer came in and wanted to do the same for his blue 370z. To up the ante a bit he also ordered a set of Berk high flow catalytic converters (HFC’s) to replace the stock units and hopefully make some more power, let’s find out.
We knew exactly what to expect from the install and everything went off without a hitch. We obviously had to perform a few minor tweaks with the Stillen pieces just like we did on our shop car to get the fitment to be acceptable. After all parts were installed the car was strapped to the dyno and we went about our business to get some numbers. After all was said and done the car picked up 27whp and 14wtq for a total of 302whp and 247 ft/lbs of torque. Which means the Berk HFC’s add roughly five to six horsepower when you compare the numbers of the ZCG 370 which goes without the HFC’s, for now….
The really nice thing about these simple bolt-on modifications is that the performance of the engine is increased over the entire power band. I don’t know of anyone in their right mind who would turn these gains down for the price. 300+ whp with THREE bolt-ons, not too shabby for a couple hours work.
Special thanks to Ken at Roost Billet Products for making those killer ZCG plates for all of our show cars and cars without plates. You rule Ken.
