Boost is provided by the TD-05H-18G turbos that are standard issue in the GReddy kit. A GReddy PRofec B-Spec II boost controller dials in the boost to 16 psi on the street and 23 psi for special occasions. An HKS F-CON V Pro provides tuning control and SGP has wired an HKS A/F Knock Amp on the passenger side bank and an Innovate LM-1 on the driver's side bank of cylinders to generate up-to-date correction data for a seamless sequential tuning scheme. The success of this approach is vividly illustrated on SGP's Dynapak dyno-625 whp and 600 lb-ft of torque.
"This is the sixth 350Z / G35 combination over 600 rwhp on pump gas from our stable this year," says SGP Racing President Mark Gust. "Next year promises 800+ rwhp from a street driven, we're talking daily, 350Z. And we are working on even larger 4.0-liter setups for the next season as well so keep an eye out for what is to come."
The entire 350Z tuning community has to be loving the popularity and stout nature of Nissan's 350Z. And as long as there are maniacal owners like Jander in the fray all will be well on the tuning front for years to come.
"The bottom line," states Jander emphatically, "is that I am competitive and it seems like all the power is never enough. I want to have the fastest street 350Z in the country, and I constantly read up on the forums to find new ways to make power. I have plans on changing the exhaust to a 3-inch custom turbo-back exhaust and possibly changing the plenum design to allow the car to breathe better. I also wanted the car to have show car looks so that people know it is all show AND all go. Not just one or the other. I am getting close to being satisfied, but it seems I am always one mod away from being done!"
