Default

09' 370z
Stillen kit installed aug 2011
Max hp 432rwhp @ 7500 rpms
Max tq 340rwtq @ 5200 rpms
Max boost 10psi on 9lb pulley

Other mods

Ark exhaust
Random tech high flow cats
Built motor 9.1cr

Total miles on kit less then 3500 miles

Kit being replace with s&r single turbo kit

Why I am happy with the power the kit made but I want. More and I can't get there with out doing a lot of mods to the kit
Also the water to air intercooler is not that great and it gets very very hot in summer adding more power will only make that worst

Thanks swiss370Z. Just as a curiosity, have you been retested for Swiss emissions control standards? Since all of the mods were completed?

Hello irondoc

Here in Switzerland, we have no chance with HFC to pass the emissions test!
The "Z" comes with the original catalysts by controlling.
With a new car, the official exhaust emission test for the first time
after 4 years are made, then every 2 years.

by the way...

For the official entry in the Swiss-papers we had to install even in the original exhaust system! (You know how quiet it is?)

Why:
The Nissan was too loud for the test with my first FOX- exhaust system!

I must be doing something wrong because I can't get the numbers like you guys. I am thinking about removing my test pipes and see how it works.

Shamu is running PPE long tubes and a Litespeed exhaust that has no mufflers. Idk what other Voodoo he has going on, but he's making 50whp more than anyone else I've seen on a Stillen kit lol.

LOL...........Voodoo, huh? Those are very impressive numbers. What did you decide on SS? You going SC or Turbo?

Check my sig, got a build thread going, unfortunately... I'm waiting on the new build to start, supposedly this month.

Dynojets are pretty consistent, so I'm thinking, a +/- 3% variance in the numbers, and it's still pretty good.

Oh snap. I guess I should have read your sig first. I think you are going to have more of a beast that you anticipated on you hands with that build. I am interested in the maintenance requirements with that system as well.

Should be fun. I want to buy some short tails and slap it on my Tanabe mid pipe just to see what it would sound like haha. I would have a completely modular exhaust system then. Mounting points on the mid pipe are same as stock, which means some interesting combinations lol. Anyways, I'm getting off topic.
