Default Z1 400hp package RHD conversion

Hey!

Has anyone purchased Z1's 400hp package and installed it onto a RHD Z.
Did you have any major fitment issues that you encountered along the way. I wish to purchase that kit and also Z1s lower ported manifold in unison but trying to iron out all the issues pre purchase!

Ill be installing these onto a non nismo 2013 370z.

Would love to know your insight and work around to any issues you faced.

If fitment of the entire kit is an issue, ill probabaly purchase the upper and lower intake manifolds only and buy a full exhaust system locally thats designed for the RHD.


Regards

Hey there,

I also own a RHD 370z, regarding the headers, I recently did this
exercise and found that almost all of the headers available in the usa dont
fit RHD models, however I did find that the PPE long tubes are available in a
RHD option so thats what I ended up buying. I havnt fitted them yet but I can tell from the advertising pic that they look slightly different being RHD ones.

I bought these from conceptzperformance.com and Nick there was a great help.

There are photo's in my post history that show you how you need to modify the RH header so that it does not hit the steering column knuckle.
I did this with Stillen shorty headers but all the US headers (long or short) have this problem. PM me if you want me to email copies of the photos.

All the US headers, aside from the one or two that are available with a RHD option that is. If you buy the ppe's as RHD there is no modification required.

Both the Megan Racing and the DC Sports headers fit fine on the RHD 370z
