Towards the middle of June, Thomas brought his bone stock 2003 nissn 350Z in to have our single turbo kit, motordyne plenum spacer, transgo shift kit and our single exit exhaust installed. With this being his first turbo vehicle, we knew that he was going to fall in love as soon as he pressed the throttle all the way for the first time. We took a few photos of the install and the dyno session as well, as this vehicle made great power on only 9 psi!
Utilizing a majority of the same components from the manual turbo kit with except to the crossover pipe, we proceeded by first having the transgo shift kit installed to allow for firmer shifts with the additional power.
Once the shift kit was installed, we proceeded to install the Deatschwerk 600 cc injectors, Deatschwerk 265 fuel pump along with the motordyne 5/16" plenum spacer and our catch can.
With all of the fuel components installed, we moved towards removing the catalytic converters and exhaust for the hot side piping to be installed.
With the limited amount of room that we have with the automatic transmission, we are required to run an open to atmopshere for the wastegate (unlike the manual transmission where we recirculate it back into the exhaust system).
With the hot side components installed and the turbo mounted, we proceeded to install the cold side piping and the intercooler.
Even with the turbo kit installed, we still are able to retain all of the factory reservoirs and the factory nissan intake plenum cover.
Here is another view of the catch can mounted with the intake on the vehicle.
With the turbo kit installed, it was time to hit the dyno and see what kind of power this kit would make via Osiris Uprev as the engine management used for tuning.
After a few hours of ecu calibration and adjustments, the final numbers were 385 hp and 346 ft-lbs of torque on 93 pump gas!
