Technosquare's Nissan 370Z/Infiniti G37 Performance ECU Reflash Released (NEW VIDEO)! by Mike Kojima
Technosquare changes the factory fuel, timing, rev limit and VVEL/VTC cam control maps to get a respectable gain of 11 whp and 10 lb/ft of torque. The gains are pretty much across the board, starting at 2700 rpm and continuing until the rev limiter stops the fun. The gains are large and consistent through the entire rev range, greatly increasing the area under the power curve.
When the ten engineers of Nissan gathered together to conceptualize the design of their next sports car line back in early sixties, we wonder if they ever fathomed the idea that their little clay mock up would grow to hold the title of "Best Selling Sports Car Series of All Time". From the first generation Fairlady Z/Datsun 240Z to the newest 370Z, the Z car has earned its notoriety in automotive history.
Nissan 370Z Convertible Hits the Streets! by Sarah Forst
The Nissan 370Z Roadster also uses the Z Coupe’s multilink 4-wheel independent suspension. This suspension setup is a double wishbone 2-link front and 4-link rear suspension, an improvement over the over-complicated articulated lower multi-link setup in the 350Z. The suspension is lighter and stiffer with forged aluminum arms, lighter stabilizer bar offering a 35% improved leverage ratio, and lightweight rigid rear cradle incorporated as a single piece. The rack and pinion steering design is speed sensitive and includes a solenoid valve that damps unwelcome steering kickback and vibrations. The Vehicle Dynamic Control (VDC) system is still a standard feature.
We Test Jim Wolf Technologies Nissan 370Z Dual Pop Charger (NEW VIDEO)! by Mike Kojima
We used a new six speed sports model Nissan 370Z with a few hundred miles on the odometer as our test subject. Before the installation of the JWT Dual POP, we baselined the car on Technosquare’s AutoDyn 30 Superflow chassis dyno. The Superflow dyno is unique in that it uses both an inertial weighted roller and an eddy current load cell to provide the working load against the engine.
Now that we got our car drawn out and colored, it is time to put some new kicks. In this case, I chose the VOLK GT-V's.
With Nissan claiming some awesome production power numbers for the 370Z, we decided to put the car through a dyno test to see if Nissan is able to back up their claims on actual production cars. Our test mules are both sport model 370Zs, bone stock from the dealer with just a few hundred break in miles.
When evaluating the exhaust system on the Nissan 370Z we were amazed how restrictive it was. The tubing diameter is tiny for an engine with the output of the VHR37. To help address this issue we decided to start uncorking the exhaust system by evaluating a set of high flow Catalytic Converters and Downpipes from Berk Technology.
