Hi Elvis,

 

I have moved your query to From General ZClub Events to 370Z Performance & Tech, Engine & Drivetrain.

 

And in answer to your inquiry there are direct bolt on kits available on the market provided some research is done which don't require an engine rebuild and most supercharger kits for the Z are capable of the figures you are after without compromising reliability and drivability. Hope this helps somewhat.

stillen is the easier/cheaper supercharger to go for. but there is also GTM. performance is around the same on both kits running @ 10PSI.

Maybe look up the members rides section for 370z's with forced builds. What did you wanna know specifically?

 

Pay a shop or diy remove the engine from under the car, and buy a bolt on kit. Then get a z experienced shop to tune it from maps in the kit or a custom one.

 

Have seen 3 stillen superchargers come through my dealer, all 3 where stock engines, 2 were a/t and one m/t. 2 guys had a uprev tune only and ran fine. one of them had a full Hks FCon aftermarket ecu. Hks man said he paid $14k for stillen kit and ecu and install.

 

Have seen only one GTM sc, as far as i knew only their stage 1 kit is a safe stock bolton but he had the 1.5 stage kit (500 instead of 450hp?) and this one is a stock ecu reflash unsure of which tool used possibly uprev or i know GTM can reflash your ecu if you send it or maybe supply something. Only other mod is methanol injection for colder intake temps. This beast is hard driven too seen it flying around the southside and gets tracked often.

 

Have seen a stock block 350z hr with a single top mount also.

 

 

Hope that gives you some idea until an owner can shed some light for you

If you have some questions I have a stillen supercharged 370Z. Great kit I'm not running an aggressive tune 400hp rw on a dyno dynamics dyno.

If your in Syd give Jim or Andrej a call at Croydon Racing Developments they installed and tuned mine.

They are presently also installing a GTM twin turbo. The work they do is meticulous

By the way if you want more than 450 rwhp go for the Gtm kit not sure if it fits Rhd. The stillen kit won't give you much more than 450 rwhp without mods ,there is a guy inSwitzerland that's getting 500rwhp. I run mine at 400rwhp it's a blast as a daily drive. One other thing be prepared to. replace your clutch I've ordered Southbend stage 3 quiet disk with 19 lb steel flywheel and you will need a heavy duty csc from zspeed. Around 2.5k plus plus install around $600

Vlad did you buy the supercharger kit? or did the car already had it when you bought it? How much in total did the kit+install cost you?

Mine was a used kit .When I received it half the parts where missing or damaged.Stillen where helpful with the parts I needed , sent vortech blower to capa in Adelaide for refurb , purchased 850cc injectors from a member , aeromotive 340l fuel pump from cj motorsports. Croydon Racing Developments did install and uprev tune.

A new kit from stillen is US$6.4k RHD + frieght+gst+duty + exchange rate.around 9k

For install about 15 hrs labour + dyno tune 1.6k - or you can use the supplied uprev stillen tune which I would not recommended if you want some decent hp numbers. Also allow 1k contingency.

Also you will need

Good cat back exhaust 2k

Oil Cooler 1k

Gtr spark plugs

+ recommended

Up grade suspension 1.5k upwards

Up grade brakes 5k upwards

Up grade clutch and flywheel 2.5k upwards

Costs are as a guide only

400hp on the rear wheels sounds safe as the motor is not designed for FI. You may still have a safety factor left over? who knows.

Here is my dyno chart, done on a dyno dynamics.

I am happy with the numbers I was more interested in torque than HP and not pushing the numbers at the expense of an engine rebuild.

Upgraded to 9lb pulley - 9lb boost (kit comes with 8lb pulley)/ upgrade to 850cc injectors(kit comes with 600cc) and 340l fuel pump (kit comes with 240l). Next week a larger heat exchanger and braided lines to the water to air Intercooler will be fitted as the stillen heat exchanger is rather small and the rubber water hoses pickup a lot of radiant heat in the engine bay. Hopefully this will bring the inlet air temps down. Also my clutch is slipping so a Southbend stage 3 with quiet disk option and a 19lb steel flywheel with Zspeed heavy duty CSC  is being installed at the same time. From what Ive researched this clutch and flywheel makes minimal chatter noise , hope this is the outcome as I don't want the car at idle to sound like a diesel truck. If you need to know anything about clutches for the Z Joe at Z-Speed is the guy to talk to.

Vlad147 where are you located as your car is insane and wouldn't mind catching up for a chat. I have a 350z supercharged with 245rwkw and wouldn't mind comparing both cars.

Had the larger heat exchanger installed , put it on the dyno for a retune , few more hp , biggest difference more torque earlier. Changed the clutch to a south bend stage 3 daily (quiet disk option) with 19lb steel flywheel , great clutch holds the torque without slipping , a bit heavier pedal than stock , about as quiet as the OEM, none of the OEM shudder.

Also installed some defi gauges ,TWM short shifter and JBT brakes and rotors.

      17s wouldn't fit over your brakes and 8.5 width will barely fill your guards. I run 20s on my 350Z and the front pair are 8.5's but they are a very low offset so they fill the front guards. My rears are 10" wide and I wouldn't go any narrower on a 370Z unless it's a very low offset. If you want to have a play around with wheels and tyre sizes to see what they look like, check out http://rimtuck.com/  Also I am on my 4th set of Achilles tyres and I reckon they're awesome!

      Sounds like the usual dealer/spare parts bullshit runaround to me.  I contacted a dealer in Melb and asked for a price on the bumper and mentioned it was for a non-Nismo 370Z and was given a quote for the bumper, 2 lower moulds and the badge without a problem. If you're not happy with the response from your local dealer I'd call Nissan Customer Care (1800 035 035) or have another dealership order it for you and have it sent to your local dealer for pickup.

      Hey there Z'dsters. Feeling annoyed.......... I'm loving the Nismo front end on the z'ds. I've searched online. checked out heaps of different styles and decided on a Stillen front end, i reckon they look absolutely sic on the front of a  z'd...... Looking further into it and pricing from the US it was radically expensive to buy and freight out here to the mid nth coast and paint. After a considerable amount of aganising, over thinking and head aches from thinking to much about Z'd front ends i decided to go with the Nismo front end off a Z'd which i can buy from a business in Queensland. Investigating further........ i find an after market place online that has heaps of different moulds and what do you know they have a Nissan Nismo front end in Duraflex or fibreglass moulds.  Happy as..... I investigate further and i'm reading horror stories from guys that have done the conversion. Nothing lines up......... A / m moulds don't fit oem parts on car etc etc. So i read on and i find a profiler's comment that say's order from Nissan dealer cause everything will line up and fit......... Makes sense right...... Now me being from the motor cycle racing world, i know first hand how much fitting after market moulds or fairing on a bike can be and its a massive pain in the arse. So i run with the idea and i'm contacting my local Nissan dealer......... I ask for spare parts and the guy answers the phone and away i go asking for a Nismo front apron. He says...... No i'm sorry, i'm told that you will have to contact a Nissan Nismo dealer........ and order.... Oh i say......Ok that's cool. So i ask him ........Is Suttons Nissan in Sydney a Nissan Nismo dealer. He asks his counterpart and i hear him say yes i think so. So i ring Suttons Nissan Chullora and i ask to purchase a Nismo front end..... Here is the annoying part. No I'm sorry Nismo parts are strictly for Nismo cars only.  GRRRRRRRR. WTH. So let me get this straight. You wont sell me a nissan genuine nismo product but yet i can buy a copy of it and have it delivered to my door and i get it anyway, it just doesnt say Nissan on it.......... What the hell Nissan Australia....... I'm annoyed and not a happy Nissan Z'd customer.

      Hey there Z'dsters. So after reading all the comments about rim size and style, im now hesitant to change them. Its a lot of money out laid for something that could go horribly wrong. Firstly im not a lover of my 2012 rims... hence the reason for change. To be honest with you all, im now confused as hell and don't really no which way to turn. I find that im varying from the 19" because of the other styles and makes of rim that i like but are not made in a 19" . This Z'd is my first real nice car that is my baby as all of my vehicles have been high powered motorcycles so the Z'd relm is a learning curve to me. Ozzy tyres has two rims i'm considering, 1. is a 20" x 8.5 gloss black rim called ( pro drag PD1 ) now its a 8.5 inch width, which after researching can accomadate a tyre width from 225mm to 255mm. The 2nd rim im considering is a Vertini drift 19" x 8.5. colour to be decided. So after reading everyone's input i really am confused as to which way i should go and colour really. My Z'd is a 2012 Montery blue, and she is stock as a rock. Her shoe size's are.... Front: 245/40 x 19.    Rear: 275/35x19. They are Achilles tyres and i do not recommend, i find they are hopeless in the wet, crappy handling and helps the car understeer even more, and milage was lame and quite noisy........ Anyway................. So wheel and tyre package is needed for my baby girl...... So in your opinion guyz do you think the 20" rims a waste of money for the Z'ds. And would you consider 17 / 18" deep dish rims and why. would it cause complications being a smaller wheel etc etc. if you guys and gals don't mind.......... Some proper education on this matter would be seriously appreciated. Thanks Z'dsters. Dman.

      Hey fellaz, forgot about this thread.   My install is complete finally! Lets just say this is not a real RHD kit. I am pretty dissapointed in AAM claiming it is RHD.   Don't get me wrong the quality of the kit is excellent, but the amount of modifications/fab work it needed to fit our RHD car was insane! My install bill was huge because of it! Same with the other 2 AAM RHD kits i know of that was installed around Australia and UK.   Save yourself the cash, and buy a RevZone TT kit for 16K installed and tuned. The amount I spent to get the AAM kit fitted is enough to build a forged engine! I kind of lost respect for AAM now for telling us it is a RHD kit. 😠
