Will we see a SINGLE turbo kit?

Just curious if you guys think it is possible?

I think it will be Supercharger (roots style) or Twin Turbo in order to take advantage of the Twin throttle bodies. I'm personally going Supercharger, not looking for super big HP gains for the track. A an extra 100Hp with improved lower RPM torque would do it for me.

I would say it is highly unlikely that you will see a single turbo kit on this platform, but you never know.

george,


why do you think its unlikely? It would seem like with the higher displacement it would be better suited towards a single turbo than the vq35.?

The dual throttle bodies are the primary reason. It's not impossible to pressurize a single intake tract to split to the two intakes, but it may not be worth the effort in time or materials to engineer the routing/piping.

A roots blower is definitely what I'm hoping for!

Bingo...doable, but not woth the effort, especially given the tight confines of the 370Z and other twin throttle throttle body VQ's.
