Ranjan works at Google and owns this beautiful 2004 Daytona Blue Z33 with only 50k on the clock! After giving much thought to buying a newer car he decided to improve his Z instead and came to ZCG for a full Vortech supercharger install. When you believe in the Z great things can happen! The blower is a polished V-3 unit and several supporting mods were installed including Stillen headers, JWT cams, Bassani exhaust, GTM oil cooler, ZCG bypass filter, heat shield and CAI. Here is a before/after of the install:
Just a few shots of the build showing the FMIC and ZCG cold air intake…check the gallery below for more detailed shots of the installation!
The Unichip is mounted on the kick panel and GTM oil cooler location is shown:
JWT cams really wake the motor up and complement boost, check out the difference in cam lobe profiles:
Stillen headers compared to the stock unit and the popular Bassani exhaust are installed:
JWT Clutch and flywheel go in for peace of mind and performance with the supercharged engine:
Boost is good. The dyno reveals significant gains as revs increase with 155hp/88tq over stock for a grand total of 402hp/329tq at the wheels!
With all of this new found power Ranjan soon realized that the Z was not balanced anymore :0 It needed some brakes. Stoptech to the rescue with their 332mm BBK up front and Sport kit in back:
With brakes to match the increase in power we think Ranjan will enjoy owning and driving his Z even more
