anyone know a good tuner in sydney and what is the best reflash to use

Go talk to the tuners and get a feel for the outcome. They will raise issues that you may not have considered.  

Dave at SAS Silverwater did my tune to factory ECU ( He has written his own software) HKS GT S/C 260rwkw/\.

The guys at Tunehouse are also very good.

So I have had my Red 2009 370Z for a few years now and I have 54,000km on the odo. Just wondering how the 7AT is holding up to the punishment of arround 400rwhp?

I have a choice of either buying another car and Trading in the Z or doing something extreme like a supercharger as I occasionally do track days. I was tempted to buy a BMW M135i and do some simple mods to that, but I love the Z too much.

I may need some wider rubber as well, I am running Ku36 245x18 on the rear and the Z especially in cold weather lets loose in first and second with enough ease.

I am also looking at doing a S/C kit upgrade to my 370Z. I was quoted around ~$10-15K for parts and labor for the kit including supporting mods, from various tuners in SA.

 

I only want to achieve at least 400 rwhp on low boost if possible.

Apologies for reviving an old thread. To those who actually have the Stollen SC installed, did any of you stumble across issues with installation and post installation? In the US, there were a few who suffered from erratic idling, stalling at idle, hard start ups on cold and hot days, and the ever prevalent crappy canned tune. Is that an issue in Australia too?

I've read enough threads about poor reliability and issues with the stillen kit to be completely put off. RJ Manufacturing is developing a twin screw whipple supercharger which I think will outperform the stillen kit. There'a a thread on the 370z forum under forced induction.

If it's twinscrew, it'll sit on top of the engine wouldn't it? So I'm guessing the stock hood and the engine sway bars? won't fit no more?

That's exactly right, but they're saying that the Australian distributor will arrange a hood for their FI package. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

Tempted to wait for this RJM Kit aswell.

 

But I think it will be around $9-10K USD. Which you can get an AAM TT kit for that price offers great power, which is a very high quality and built kit, EFR turbos!!

they seem adamant that it will be sub-10k and best $/hp on the market. It all comes down to the area under the curve for me. Hopefully the kit is beast. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

I would think that in terms of power upgrades in the future, there's no denying that a TT kit is the way to go. The only thing holding you back would be the stock block, hence why I reckon most would go for a supercharger. Less stress and heat on the block. Plus both options would get you into the 500hp mark easily.

Well I don't think I could wait out for the RJM kit even if it is going to be good, so I pulled the trigger on an AAM TT Kit the other night. Now just waiting for it all to get here!!

Re Stillen Kit 370

I have purchased new and arrived here december 2017, i have had it up on blocks for the past few weeks getting to it when i can, i have found the kit very comprehensive, as far as most things have been thought of..

the instructions that come with it are a little less impressive however, some parts are not even in the diagrams for example.

i have enjoyed playing with it, and i am a mechanic by trade, even if i dont do that for a crust anymore.

i would not recommend this kit be done at home unless you are very handy with the tools, and up for a challenge

so far i have had to modify a lot of bits to try to make them fit properly and have burnt quite a few hours.

i am almost done, but still have an oiler cooler to fit, and then i will fire it up...

the last point is the tune at autotech hopefully next week and then i will gladly let you know if it was all worth it.

cost around 9 for the kit plus 1 for the tune, so 10ish hopefully finished..

mine has 40 ks on it now and i like to take it to the track, but found that i was wanting more squirt from it, so this made the most sense to me, the supercharger that is..IMG_0182.thumb.JPG.5b30623fb31067df7721dIMG_0182.thumb.JPG.5b30623fb31067df7721d

      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. 😠
