Boosted Performance 6266 Turbo 350Z Dyno Tune 417WHP

This Nissan 350Z came to us from Nashville TN for a dyno tune after installing a Boosted Performance turbo kit, and left with over 400 horsepower at the wheels. A Precision Turbo billet CEA 6266 turbo was chosen with .81ar exhaust housing, and was installed on the factory headers with a 3″ exhaust system. After installing the kit, the team at Dynosty was contacted to supply a base Haltech ECU calibration in order to drive the vehicle to Louisville for a complete dyno tune. Upon arrival, Hal quickly dialed in the drivability and began working on power tuning. 300+whp was achieved and some minor changes were needed to get the boost controller working. After the adjustments we were able to post up consistent 400+whp numbers, ending at 417WHP max at 9-10psi. This is great power for the stock VQ35DE Nissan 350Z engine with Boosted Performance turbo kit on stock headers. Generally we recommend aftermarket headers due to the stock headers restrictive nature for 400+ territory.

New MXP Titanium Shift Knob

Just released: the new MXP Titanium shift knob is very similar to the sought after ARC Titanium shift knob. The MXP titanium shift knob is weighted for a clean shift feel, and comes with 4 metal threaded inserts to fit most Japanese applications such as the Nissan 350Z, Infiniti G35 and Nissan 370Z. The metal inserts are superior to the plastic style that frequently strip out. Thread pitches included: 8×1.25, 10×1.25, 10×1.5, and 12×1.25

MXP shift knobs debuted at SEMA and just arrived in the USA. They are available for immediate purchase. MSRP $125

Stillen Supercharged 2007 Nissan 350Z HR Upgrades

This 2007 Nissan 350Z arrived for a variety of upgrades, and more are already being planned. Stillen’s VQ35HR / VQ37VHR supercharged kit was installed with the Stillen / Uprev reflash, and we strapped it on the Dyno Dynamics to get a baseline. At 7-8psi the Vortech-fed VQ35HR pumped out 329whp (red line on dyno chart).

A smaller pulley was then fitted to the Vortech, but due to Stillen’s design a smaller belt was unavailable (8rib 21inch belt) – so we machined a larger idler pulley which worked perfect to tension the back 8-rib belt. The Stillen / Uprev reflash form of engine management was set aside in favor of a standalone, the Haltech 350Z kit. This was installed on the HR using Dynosty’s VQ35HR Haltech Plug&Play harness. After a dyno tune the 350Z progressed to 400whp (blue line).

For that extra kick, a Nitrous Express dry system was added along with a Haltech CAN IO Box to control it, yielding 431whp (black line).

Stay posted for some winter upgrades including a manual tensioner to prevent front-belt slip, and a built motor as we push this setup even further!
