going to second a question that was asked and not answered. I took note that the fast intentions car put in the OS GENKI LSD which im pretty sure is 10X better than that garbage nissan tossed in stock. Ive even had friends tell me as im doing a sprint burnout before a drag "since the Z wont sit and spin LUL" one tire starts to smoke before the other. Clear indication to anyone whos not an idiot that off the line your getting all your initial traction from ONE TIRE before the fluid in the viscus rear can spin the other side. its the laziest cheapest way to make a LSD in human history and only has one advantage, as long as you dont overheat them they pretty much last forever. So i would say, LSD is a HUGE factor in going FI only if your going from a dig. making a drag car? get a 1.5 or a 2 locking LSD. doing ANYTHING ELSE? dont bother, because after both wheels are spinning at relitivly the same speed aka not from a dead stop, the car does a pretty decent job at putting power down to both of them. so from a roll there would be no difference between a locking, and a viscus on an FI car. Also, look into the dynamics of how turning affects a car, one wheel spins faster than the other from inside to the outside of the car. Having a locking rear isnt always a good thing. Thats why they are used in drift cars.

This is an awesome write up and very informative...Here's my dilemma...I saw a couple of the posts above that FI CAN be used on a DD. While I love my new Z, I miss the power that I had previously with my twin turbo 996. First there's the whole warranty issue and praying nothing major goes wrong..."maybe it won't if I don't go to crazy with the build" How long with this motor live as a daily driver? How many folks pulled the trigger on a TT kit for their new daily driven Z?

Ok..another Noob question...This IS the "FI for Noobs" thread after all
Can someone explain the differences b/t internal and external wastegates and why one is better or worse then the other? And BOV? I know what it stands for, but don't know what it's for :-)

I need one of the yellow "Turbos for Dumbies" books

Luv driving Turbo cars, now I want to know all about them!

For a really good book on the subject, pick up Corky Bell's "Maximum Boost".

Wasn't sure where to post this, but I have a '09 6mt, im planning on going TT hopefully by this time next year. My car has been a daily driver since I got it and I have about 55K on the odometer. My question is, is there a certain point mileage wise where I shouldn't boost my car? I'll be getting a DD soon to help keep the milage off the Z but started thinking about this. My other thought was should I just sell my current Z and get a lower mileage one once I have my DD. I just don't want to start buying all the supporting mods and then find out its not worth it.

Get a compression test and an oil analysis. If all the numbers come back clean, go for it. There's no magic number where it's got too many miles to mod.

Thank you so much for the information I am thinking about inducing my 2014. This was a great place to start. I am still pondering supercharging or single turbo.

Great write up. I live in a place where F I is a gamble at time of registration renewal. So im looking for the smallest SC in terms of physical size. My goal is to reach 500 whp for a DD. I will occasionally track the car but mainly its a dd. I appreciate any input

Well, this is an easy answer. The smallest is the GTM Stage 1.5 that will make your power goals.

It does look small. Is there a known safe psi, given the stock engine compression ratio of 9.0:1? I think.
