I should have done this a long time ago but I've never been an "active" forum member before. I always used it as a resource. I sold my twin turbo 350 in October of 2010. I have a 2010 Tundra and it wasn't as fun to drive as a turbocharged sports car. That being said, I began my look and it ended in November when I found a 40th Anv. 370z, build number 184 in Dallas. It only had 600 miles on it, I grabbed a friend and we were off before someone else could get it. I would say no less than 2 weeks after I owned the car I already had the Stillen CAI, JWT flywheel, Act clutch, B&M short shifter, test pipes, HKS exhaust and HKS coilovers installed and tuned.....all before HKS jacked their prices up. (I had a lot of money left over from the 350 sale.) I can't stand stock, that's just me.
I'm also very lucky to have many friends and family in the aftermarket auto/motor bike industry. As you all know I'm very close with the people @ JTran Studios and without them my 350 and my 370 would have never existed. When I was building my 350 back in the day I ran into a lot of issues with shady shops and just overall bad luck. Johnny at JTran took my car and fixed everything for free basically. He showed me there are good people in the aftermarket scene. I've been a close friend and loyal supporter of their shop ever since. Johnny is known as the best UpRev tuner in Houston, I honestly don't know why people w/ VQ's, who live in this city or area go anywhere else.
All that crap out of the way I'm going to post a bunch of pictures of the car on it's rise up to where it is now, Some pics are shitty cell phone ones....sry.

Default DyNo

This graph goes as follows:

RUN 1 = Baseline w/ intake; 260.154whp and 207.587wtq

RUN 2 = intake, exhaust, UpRev tune; 286.211whp and 218.860wtq

RUN 3 = JTran single turbo 6-7 psi (hit 7psi dwindled to 6psi prior to boost controller install); 385.575whp and 339.400wtq

This dyno will read lower than any I've ever seen, a true "heartbreak" AWD Mustang Dyno. Regardless I've made well over 100+whp and wtq! Pumped up!

Default DyNo

This graph represents JTran single turbo 6-7 psi vs GTM stg 2 @ 6psi, both cars still needing fine tuning, etc... Twin turbo will always come on faster but watch out, single turbo not far behind.

RUN 1 = GTM; 380.811whp and 315.702wtq

RUN 2 and 3 = JTran; 385.575whp and 339.400wtq




Graph was my Dyno pull @ 6-7psi vs 10 psi Meth run. You can see where the clutch began to slip on the graph

Default Shitty cell phone vids

Hopefully I'll have better soon!

1st video was an Arby's run, when I throttle hard had to put two hands on the wheel....lol, traction! Didn't really punch it, just more a drivability video! I also did a walk around the car while it was running @ the end of the video.



2nd video was right after we finished fabrication and initial tuning.



Day Run:







This clip is a take off, @ the 8-9 second mark I make small fire out my rear end!



This clip is coming back



This is inside the car, prob reved it up to 6k, nothing too crazy. I have pretty stiff suspension and camera isn't that great but you get an idea.

Anyone know if the GTM S/C intake pipes from the intercooler to the engine are 3 inch diameter? Looking for an easy fix to replace the Stillen CAI I adapted to work for now. MAF voltage is fine because I have the UpRev MAFs but I'd like some more air volume!

Thanks homies, boost sensor finely made it in. I'm going to do some fine tuning this week, push it to 10psi and see what she can do. I'll try to make it over to the Dyno Jet @ Chris's Car Doc's but it will probably be on JTrans AWD Mustang Dyno. I'll post some vids and dyno sheets later this week.
