Great write up, Right know I'm trying to deside between a Greddy or GTM TT kit for my up coming build next year. I'm leaning toward the GTM turn key kit.

Anyone using Nitrous and methanol injection? This helps octane & det's plus a cooler charge. This will get you a extra 50 hp with the same amount of nitrous.

Right now i'm using the methanol injection kit. It's really not doing the job of adding HP but keeping the engin cool at high boost.

I'm putting 440-450hp+ on my at7 right now. Haven't really had an issue so far but probably going to tear out the system and trade my z in for another but manual this time. I've looked for upgrades for it but haven't really found anything since most people FI or SC manuals.

I agree! Great write up very informative for us that want to go F/I and don't know the first thing about it. I know it is too much to ask but if a motivated member wouldn't mind doing something similar for the 370z that would be greatly appreciated.

I think the following video does a decent job going over the basic concepts of Forced Induction.
