We Break 500+RWHP With The Stillen Supercharger Kit…Twice!

It used to be that breaking 500 plus rear wheel horsepower on the Nissan 370Z platform was almost impossible, but the impossible has become the possible.  We have been able to combine the correct components together with the stillen supercharger kit along with the advanced features of ecutek to allow this horsepower level to be reached.  We have been able to duplicate this horsepower level on two separate vehicles within the past month, thus showing that this package does work!

SOHO Motorsports Nissan 370Z Sets 1/4 Mile World Record!

Last October we traveled to Chicago to purchase our 2014 Nissan 370Z nismo, since that day, we said that we would build this car to be able to break the stock block quarter mile record.  The stock block quarter mile record was set at 10.91 and has been standing since september 2015 by fast intentions in a customer’s automatic twin turbo nissan 370Z.  In January, we ordered our Fast intentions twin turbo kit and waited patiently for around 10 weeks for it to arrive, once it arrive we wasted no time starting the build as we had a half mile event in may and the following weekend was Zdayz.

Fast forward six months to October 2016 and we were ready to attempt to break the 1/4 world record at Darlington Dragway.  Our second visit to darlington was a promising one as we were able to break into the 10s, 10.996 to be exact, making it the quickest manual transmission nissan 370z in the world.

We were very excited to have reached this milestone with this vehicle, but our ultimate goal of breaking the overall 1/4 mile world record time was not reached.  We made a few changes to the vehicle and headed back to Darlington two more times and on the second time, October 22,2016, we broke it!

SOHO Motorsports VHR Ported Lower Intake Manifold

Over the past few months, we have been extensively testing different machining techniques on the lower VHR intake manifold to help generate more horsepower for the Nissan 370Z & Infiniti G37.  During our research we baseline tested vehicles prior to having our finalized ported lower intake manifold installed and after, in which we have found that directly installing the intake manifold will not make power until tuning is performed where maximum horsepower can be achieved.  Below are a few photos of the ported lower intake manifold positioned right next to the stock VHR lower intake manifold.

The Decision: Nissan GT-R vs 370Z

Nearly a year ago we decided it was time to replace our shop car, a Nissan 350Z with a turbocharged DE motor.  This car was used mainly for research and development of our Single Turbo Kit for the VQ35DE motor, as we spent a fair amount of time at the track and street with over 40,000 test miles on our setup.

We knew we wanted to stick with our Nissan/Infiniti niche, and we wanted a car that could perform well at the track and on the street.

With the 370Z and G37 being virtually the same car, our need was for performance not daily drive-ability, we picked the 370Z. However, while doing our research we noticed how much used GT-Rs had dropped in price, down to 50K-60K for a higher mileage 2009-2010.  Unfortunately for us, these years are known to be plagued with possible transmission issues and getting a newer car pushed us out of our budget.

This created a choice GT-R VS 370Z and a lot of factors to consider, here are a few for a stock comparison.

The Quest For The Highest HP 370Z On Pump Gas!

Back in October of 2015, we purchased a 2014 nissan 370Z with around 10,000 miles on the odometer, not long after we purchased the vehicle we started the modification process.  We contacted tony at fast intentions and ordered their true dual catback exhaust system and resonated test pipes along with a set of K&N drop in filters.  With the newest modifications, we needed a software that would allow us to gain the maximum horsepower out of our newest addition, so we became an ecutek dealer.
