What was a relatively stock FR-S was completely transformed with high performance upgrades including Garrett GTX28 turbo kit and supporting modifications. We installed the billet-wheel turbo kit and full exhaust system, as well as larger injectors, fuel pump, and an upgraded ACT clutch and flywheel package. With the right performance parts, this FR-S was ready to hit the dyno.
Using EcuTek, Hal managed 264whp on 93octane gas from the high compression FA20 engine. With E85 in the tank we increased boost to 13psi and dialed the tune in to 355whp on our Dyno Dynamics. On a Dynojet this would be 300WHP pump gas and 400WHP E85.
Last year we installed a custom twin Garrett GTX28 turbo setup on this G35 and managed 583HP at the wheels through a fully built GTM automatic transmission (previous blog post here). The turbo kit had more to give, but the transmission and engine were at their limits. This year the Infiniti G35 coupe returned to us for a fresh VQ35DE motor build, 6 speed manual transmission conversion, suspension upgrades and more. Here are a few pictures of the performance modifications and final dyno results.
Customer Testimonial: Raj D of NC, August 21, 2012:
Many thanks to Hal, Dustin, and the crew at Dynosty for a job well done. How would I rate the experience? They get an A for customer service, A for integrity, A for knowledge/expertise, A for workmanship/quality. Only nick in the armor is that I’d give them a B for meeting time expectations as I ended up missing ZdayZ, though I was warned that that might happen. It was a complex build (details like fuel voltage regulation, oil return, etc I haven’t mentioned among other nice touches) but still I was given hope it would be done in time. They did work hard to try to meet that deadline but they would not release the car half done or untested, and well, the result is what it is. Bottom line, they have earned my trust and my future business.
The car has been tuned to perfection. It starts and drives perfectly – no hiccups, no hesitation – just smooth power to redline. I cannot feel any transmission issues while on the road. It pulls much better up top than it used to, spools just about as quickly, and has so much room to grow.
