Show and Go: Dom’s 370z

Dom brought his modified 370z to Z Car Garage for tuning and he was referred to us by our friend and fellow Z34 owner Richard M (thank you!). Dom’s Z is a 2014 Base model with full AimGain Widebody Kit, Work Meisters S1 3P wheels, gorgeous Yas Marina Blue paint and a host of bolt-ons.

 

 

 

We put it on the dyno and went to work on the UPREV tune. We saw gains of 21hp/11tq for a total of 337hp/278tq to the wheels:

 

 

This is one of the most powerful NA 370z cars to come through ZCG. It is also another example of how dyno tuning can unlock the full potential of bolt-ons for your Z.  Dom you’ve done a great job with the car it looks fantastic!

Dennis’ Infiniti G37

Dennis K comes from the East coast and moved to Bay Area for work. Once here he wanted to find a specialty shop to help him with his G37. He already had coil-overs and larger wheels/tires but no camber adjustment. His first visit to ZCG in October ’16 included installation of SPC F/R cambers arms and new Bridgestone S-04s tires.

 

Following a full alignment we also raised his coil-overs slightly to cope with the wonderfully smooth roads we have here in the Bay Area. Finally we added our favorite sway bars from Hotchkis, and performed some cleanup work.  As always, the performance and modifying bug kicked in. Dennis came back to us in March of this year after he had waited for his Fast Intentions cat-back exhaust to arrive:

 

A Stoptech Sport-kit rounded out the chassis upgrades. After the cat-back was installed, we change the oil, and installed several parts that Dennis had purchased online including a strut bar, grille and CF diffuser:

Thank you for letting us work on your G, Dennis!




Allan’s FX35

Allan came to ZCG because he was getting a Check Engine light resulting in smog issues. We found that his catalytic converters were well passed their lifespan and decided to get a set of low-mileage cats for testing. While the FX was in the shop we installed some Fast Intentions high-flow cats:

 
 

The engine was treated to a Stillen intake, and UPREV tuning. Since this car is awd, Rob UPREV streetuned it.

 

Allan is super stoked and enjoying the FX. He’s also been coming in for regular services and we love keeping folks on the road!
