Tony N came to ZCG to discuss tuning for his Z33. After a bad MAF and plenum leak were discovered and sorted, Rob UPREV’d the Z with great results. Peak gains of 16hp/23tq for a total of 267hp/257tq to the wheels is a significant improvement in power. More impressive is the area under the curve after UPREV tuning: From just under 4000rpm to redline Tony’s Z is now making a solid +25hp/34tq to the wheels!
Tony would like to give a shout out to his crew, High Octane Tuners. We like the 19″ Z34 wheels filling the fenders especially in the pictures below. Enjoy the Ride!
Dan F is a hardcore autocross and road course guy. His weapon of choice: Nissan’s 350 Zed. Last year Dan made the jump to forced induction and we did a full Vortech supercharger install, check it out HERE
. Dan came back to ZCG for several performance mods including a Bassani exhaust system, switch to waterless coolant and A/C removal.
Stock vs Bassani exhaust:
Weight reduction: Check. Efficient cooling: Check. Free-flowing exhaust: check. Go get’em Dan!
Octavio came to ZCG for bolt-ons and tuning. Here are the goodies: Motordyne MREV 2 lower intake plenum, 5/16″ plenum spacer and JWT pop charger
(Left)MREV2 plenum vs stock and (Right) 5/16 spacer :
To complement the improved breathing the stock intake was replaced with a JWT Pop charger:
The bolt-ons alone yielded gains of 7hp and 14tq to the wheels:
What is even more impressive is how Rob’s UPREV tuning takes advantage of the bolt-ons improving the baseline 251hp/227tq to a final 270hp/254tq to the wheels. Overall gains of 19hp/27tq!
Stephen is a Google employee and came to Z Car Garage on referral by GT-R owner Atila
. Stephen wanted to enjoy some track day fun in his NSX so we upgraded the brakes with a Stoptech Sport Kit consisting of slotted rotors, stainless braided lines and new pads:
Stock vs Stoptech rotors:
We love this Honda. Have fun at the track Stephen!
Once a Z owner, always a Z owner! Ruben is a long-time 350z owner and we supercharged his car several years ago, here are a few pictures:
Ruben is now the proud owner of this 2010 370z 40th Anniversary Edition and he came back to ZCG for some UPREV tuning. Check out the improvements in hp/tq throughout the entire rev range with peak gains of 16hp/12tq to the wheels for a total of 300rwhp/253tq:
We are pleased to hear that Ruben reports a more responsive engine from the UPREV tune!
