Default Blandino's TopgunZ A2A SC Build




This build will be based around @TopgunZ Full Tuner Supercharger Kit. I'll post a complete list of supporting mods that are on the way. I'm going to leave the prices I paid for everything, but keep in mind I did not shop around or look for deals. Most of the items were purchased online at Z1 Motorsports, Fast Intentions, ZSpeed, RJM Performance, and CJ Motorsports.

Current Parts:

1. Topgunz SC Kit - $5999
2. Quaife ATB LSD w/ Side Bearings - $1370
3. ID1050x Injectors with PnP Adapters - $770
4. CJM Twin Fuel Pump Housing w/ 2x Aeromotive 340 “Stealths” - $845
5. CJM Fuel Pump Relay Kit w/ Hobb Switch - $39
6. CJM S1.SE Return Fuel System - $1297
7. OS Giken Grand Touring Twin Plate Clutch - $1710
8. ZSpeed Performance HD Slave + Adapter for OS Giken Twin/Triple - $375
9. Fast Intentions TDX Cat-Back with 18” resonator, carbon fiber muffler, tri-color tips - $2030
10. Fast Intentions LTH – 1600* ceramic coating - $1790
11. RJM Performance Clutch Pedal Assembly Rev 3.3 - $300
12. RJM Performance Tilton Gen2 HD CMC - $324
13. Shapeway Brainiac Plastic for Tablet Dash – $589.66
14. Z1 Full Diff Upgrade w/ Whiteline Bushings - $296
15. Z1 Urethane Motor Mounts - $198
16. Z1 Urethane Transmission Mount - $196
17. Z1 Aluminum Subframe Bushing Collars - $148
18. Defi Advance Gauges Control Unit V2 - $156
19. Defi Advance BF Amber Oil Pressure Imperial 60mm Gauge - $278
20. Defi Advance BF Amber Fuel Pressure Imperial 60mm Gauge - $278
21. Defi Advance BF Amber Oil Temperature Imperial 60mm Gauge -$208
22. Three Gauge Cluster Mount by @scope22 - $85
23. Z1 Motorsports 34 row Setrab Oil Cooler - $628
24. CSF Manual Triple Pass Radiator & Condenser w/ Silicone Hoses- $640

Parts I still need to decide what to go with, but will be included in the build:

1. Wheels
2. Tires
3. Big Brake Kit


Update 20190803 - Parts have began trickling in.




Update 20190813 - Received the injectors & PnP adapters as well as the HD CSC. Ordered the Defi Advance BF Gauges for Oil Temp, Oil Pressure, and Fuel Pressure. These are mostly aesthetic, as I have a Zeitronix LCD on the way to set audible alarms and monitor AFR/boost. Not quite sure where I'm going to mount it. Hopefully there is room to cut out a portion of the stock instrument cluster and put it in there.

I love how those Z1 parts all have videos. I didn't even know what a bushing was, but now apparently I need them...

Haha.. Yeah, I like Z1's website a lot. I see a lot of folks asking about supporting mods and what all is needed for FI, so figured I'd keep up with the links, prices, and write a short review with a post install pic update for all the mods.

I actually had to call Z1 about the clutch a few hours ago. They didn't have options available for the soft or hard components and Michael got it all squared away in just a few minutes. Solid customer service!

Looked around for a 60mm gauge solution to swap out the stock triple cluster on the dash and saw a post by @scope22. He 3D prints these in multiple configurations for 52 & 60mm gauge pods. Super fast responses and easy to work with if anyone else is changing them out can message on here or https://www.facebook.com/groups/1520...24347641082033

It's good to see more sharings like such a build from scratch. I keep thinking I should do the same thing but am a bit lazy doing so. Maybe I'll do it in the future. Anyway.. keep doing the great job & keep us posted.

Just picked up a Z1 34 row Setrab oil cooler & the CSF radiator. All that's left for now is which wheels & the tire size along with finding some sport brakes. Probably going with RE-11's on an 18" wheel due to all the success & positive reviews on here.

They don't make the RE-11's anymore.

Be careful the radiator.

I've seen some mixed reviews on them. When I spoke with Kevin at Fast Intentions while ordering my exhaust we discussed the radiators a little. He said they used to do them frequently on their FI builds, but after a couple leaks they stopped b/c they haven't ran into issues with the stock rads on 700+ hp cars.

I debated it a lot since it probably won't be necessary for my build, but I don't want to be unhappy with coolant temps down the road and I just can't leave things alone. I'm hoping to get everything knocked out at once with this so I can finish tubing the truck and keep my hands off the 370 for a bit.

Thanks for the words of caution though, I'll definitely be keeping an eye on the coolant levels for a while.

You already have engine oil cooler so getting the low-temp thermostat paired with stock radiator should suffice unless you go built engine or track your car (or do aggressive mountain pulls frequently). Several users here and I had bad experience with it so I have to say I'm done with running such a ticking time bomb. Why would I buy in a performance part that makes me keep gazing at the temp gauge instead? Anyway, just be careful.

I have bp turbo kit and live in Tucson with stock radiator, thermostat and cap. My water gets to temp quick since the turbo is water cooled. I planned to avoid driving in over 100* temps but the heat spike caught me with my pants down the other day and ended up driving in 115* unexpectedly. My temps never went above "normal" one dot below center. Ranged from 190-230*F max.

Hottest was when i was stuck in traffic in a construction zone. As soon as i start moving it drops quick. I think hood vents would help cool better and be less risk than an aftermarket radiator.

I have an 09 too that came with green coolant. I switched to Nissan blue about a week after I installed the turbo and noticed the temps were much more stable and dropped about 30 degrees. In the winter i was hitting about 220 in 60* ambient. After Nissan blue it was around 180-190*.

I am not sure if it was crap green coolant, air in the system or the nissan blue that caused the drop but i really think it was the nissan blue.
