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

      Looks awesome, these always remind me of someone wearing a cap.  This is heaps cheaper than a US company was asking.  At 300ish its worth a shot.  Put up some photos of it once you've finished finessesing.

      My attempt at fitting it would involve a hammer ,blue tack and no more nails

      Spoiler is from Ebay, currently on special. It does look fantastic, and it's a real carbon fibre, not a vinyl wrap.. Regarding fine adjustments, there is a concern that small fibres may cause complications similar to those of asbestos so I'm getting a full face mask and disposable overalls. https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/CARBON-FIBER-CS-TYPE-N-STYLE-TRUNK-WING-REAR-SPOILER-FOR-NISSAN-370Z/262399870438

      Looks a pretty damn close fit and so much better than the stock spoiler. Work wheels look great too, very tastefull mods. Got a link to where you ordered your  spoiler from?

      It's a no-name brand, but the quality of workmanship is pretty good. I don't see many classic hand-laid-carbon-fibre faults. It didn't come with any instructions, screws, tape or paper templates. I don't recommend fitting it yourself as it is really time consuming for a beginner (me). But I already started so... OK, trial fitting (screws only). Middle part fits well, the RHS needs minor adjustment (2-4mm) and the LHS needs probably at least several mm. The problem is that it needs to be ground exactly where one of the 4 main screws is. I'll try on the weekend.
