Ok JB I will ask my questions:

Why are you re-using Stillen Gen 3 piping?
Is the piping viable for the the extra air being pushed through?
How has cooling been? Not just oil, but water temps?

I'm trying to understand that manifold piping going to the hot-side of the turbo. It looks as if it has to make a 270 degree turn at one point, right into oncoming air from the other side of the engine. Maybe I am not seeing it right, but that seems terribly inefficient.

-They re-used stillen piping to save money I guess.
-It's not but they are compensating by using upgraded MAFs
-Don't know lol

Custom piping is not that expensive if already are making that much for this turbo.
My concern is the stillen setup was designed & tested for a single purpose, whether you upgrade the MAF still questions the structure of the pipe. Also, how did they merge from gen 3 piping to custom?

Right, but see how your pipes come together such that both exhaust flows are pointed in the same direction? It appears to me that in the picture of the Jtran setup that the exhaust flows are actually opposing each other at a sharp bend before heading towards the turbine.

Woah, I was waiting for the Dynojet numbers on Thursday to do a writeup, etc... Stillen pipes were used because we wanted to get the car to the show in time, we had upgraded MAFS at the shop so we just threw them in. It's my bday today so I'm taking off work, going to the shop to get some better pics of hotside piping, etc.... The car sounds amazing, I'm happy, saving to build motor and up boost!

We just finished my single turbo build at JTran Studios in Houston, Texas. This isnt my first rodeo, I had a 2003 twin turbo 350z for many years, fully built, 550whp, etc First, Id like to thank Johnny, Amber, Mike and lil man Lakai at JTran Studios for everything theyve done for me and my Zs over the years, best peoples I know ! Shout out to 98intrigue here on the forums for stepping out of the box and tackling all the headaches first, made my life a lot easier, thanks buddy! I decided to go single because Ive had twins before, I wanted something different. Johnny has designed and made crazy power with single kits on the DE and HR VQ platforms so I thought Id let him have a go on my 40th Anniversary 370Z. We decided on a mid-mount set-up off the transmission for a few reasons, less exhaust piping, I eventually want to go around the track with this car and didnt want to worry about heat in the engine bay. There isnt a kit like this (for our cars) out there, its similar to the APS single turbo system for the 350z, but better of course  It also gives a stealthier look to the engine bay because you cant see the working end. Johnny chose the water-cooled CT4-6265 because of the mounting location and also to do something different. We did fabricate the system so a wide variety of turbos can be installed for power needs, etc Johnny is building a jig for this turbo setup so he can reproduce them for the 370z and G37. There is NO timeframe on this at the moment, but I can say he will be able to reproduce this kit for customers. When I build a car Im big on supporting mods for the cooling system, drive train, suspension, heat protection, etc so you will see that reflected in my parts list. I like to make sure once the cars done I can play for a little bit w/o having worry about it/work on it. I am already planning on building the motor sometime next year so I want it to last till then! Parts list below:

CSF Aluminum Radiator/Condenser combo
Mishimoto Thermostat, hoses, etc
Mishimoto Oil Catch Can
Greddy Radiator Breather Tank
Greddy Info-Meter Touch (boost, oil pressure, OBDII, etc)
GTM fuel pressure regulator adapter, AEM regulator w/ gauge
GTM 370z fuel pump kit
GTM 1 in, 2 out intercooler
GTM Engine Mounts
GTM upgraded CSC
TiAL Wastegate (sitting around 5psi)
TiAL Q BOV x 2
DW 650cc injectors for now, waiting on Injector Dynamics 720cc
Thermo-Tec heat protection, Turbo Blanket, wraps, etc
Comp Turbo CT4-6265
Z1 Motorsports oil cooler kit
Up-Rev tune by Johnny @ JTran Studios
JWT Flywheel w/ ACT Clutch
B&M SS
Drop Engineering 09+ Nissan 370Z Transmission Mount
HKS Hypermax coilovers in conjunction w/ H&R spacers w/ custom JTran eyeball alignment
HKS 170mm Hi-Power muffler, 3 single exhaust and MBRP Resonator
HKS 1 step colder spark plugs
Innovative wideband A/F Gauge
