Default turbo, Twin Turbo or Supercharged

hello, I am new to the Nissan Z world just purchased a 2010 370z but always been around cars. owned a Subaru sti almost all my life. I am looking at induction kits. I found a single turbo kit made by momentum performance, twin turbo kits and the supercharger kits.. I am looking for opinions on what you all like, what will give me more power and be safe still down the road.

thankyou

GTM TT is gonna be the best choice for what you're looking for. Plenty of info on that on here.

Momentum doesn't make a single kit for our cars as of yet. Only the 350. I've talked to them about it and they seemed to be considering it but they wouldn't tell me much beyond that. Which makes me believe there might be something in the works. They really need to expand anyways or they will never make it. They make such great quality

Far as other kits Greddy TT and GTM TT/ Superchargers are your tickets. Though going FI is always nice. Really think about what your getting into and all the other supporting mods that go with it. As easy as I could of went FI myself, I went with the route of over all handling/ traction, safety, and brakes to get more out of my car for the track. So only after I've have learned to over drive my car at the track and want faster lap times will I consider a full build with TT. Going to the track for one day will give you more thrill than any FI kit that's only driven on the street. IMO.

GTM TT FTW... IMO Greddy is a very good company with quality parts but in this case GTM just has a better product.

-GTM Ball Bering water and oil cooled Garret turbo VS Greddy journal bushing type turbo and oil cooled only (ball bearing turbos spool faster,more efficient,have a much longer life span and for the 370z oil temp issues going with water cooled turbo is no brainer.
-GTM kit does come with tial 50mm blow off valves VS Greddy No blow off valves are supplied.
-GTM kit is complete with fuel and engine management VS Greddy does not come with neither (have to by separate)
-GTM engine managemen is plug and play (via flash ) Greddy is piggy back system required cutting splicing engine harness.
-GTM kit has a lot of room to grow (6 different turbo stages 9 different a/r ) VS GReddy has one turbo option only available.
-GTM kit cheaper and has better value, you get more for what you pay for VS Greddy
-GTM offers 2 different couplers colors VS Greddy only one
-GTM offers k&n filter VS Greddy foam filters

I would also consider waiting to see what Fast Intentions will be cooking up - they're creating their TT kit right now. Given their track record of having much-regarded products so far, it might be worth the wait.

More power is TT, reliability is on your tuner/shop for install & tuning.
Any option is a great choice, just find a good tuner/shop and you will be good. On the note of suspension, it is a good idea because adding the increase in power will throw the balance off a lot.

Fast intention kit should be interesting. Our greddy car will be pushing over 550whp with some special tuning. With meth were aiming for over 550whp closer to 600whp. G37 greddy Tt did 525whp on 91 octane. Turn key kit is good. Greddy allows you to choose the injectors and fuel pump and the power. Seeing both kits in hand both has pros and cons. Gtm Turn key vs greddy not being turn key. The part quality on greddy IMO look better. Had a few issues with install in the gtm Tt but there's always bound to be issues. Fast intentions should have something great company out. They don't disappoint.

I am going to go out on a limb here........

Fast Intentions is about to release information on their TT kit. Until that happens, your best bets are GTM (first) and Greddy (very close second, which I am having installed right now). Most of the TT guys here have the GTM kit, but there are plenty of Greddy kits installed out there.

For SC, there is GTM (by a landslide on this forum) and Stillen. If you are looking to go with the Stillen, make sure you do your research. You are going to need it. Good luck with your decision!
