350Z STS Turbo First Drive with CEO Rick Squires
The STS Adventure becomes a reality. In the TNP 350Z the car is absolutely transformed. In high Boost the Z now hits hard and has brutal acceleration. Quick from the showroom floor, the 350Z really only needed power to achieve greatness. This is the car Nissan should have built in the first place says STS CEO Rick Squires. I couldn't agree more. That's why I committed to the STS System and the whole 350Z project. Cheaper than a Z06 build but twice as cool I say. It remains an underdog of sorts still and I relish that [and it''s hot looking]. A Corvette is supposed to go fast; a Z maybe, maybe not. Complications ensued it the install and they are discussed frankly here. The car is now making 350whp in low Boost, about 390 in high Boost. The good news is no motor work is necessary right now. Methanol injection is turned off for now (discussed) but the 425 rwhp goal is still in play after some new meth. injectors. The stock motor should be safer at the current Boost levels. TacticalDoodle, Rick, and myself take a look at the handsome STS install in this update vid and then take "Killer" for a ride where Rick scares me. Some good laughs along the way too. Satage 1 nearing completion. Now THAT'S a car./////////////////////////www.ststurbo.com or Rick Squires at 801.224.3477/////////////////////"Hey he was in a construction zone!" My response: This whole damn interstate is a construction zone and it's been that way for years. They cone places that shouldn't be coned. So what should we do, drive 20 minutes south to get out of it? Get real. As on most parts, no workers are ever there. Rick's a good driver and I don't worry about it. Neither should.

"350Z STS Turbo Installation Checkup" by Nutnfancy
More unprecedented shop talk with Rick Squires from Squires turbo Systems as we check in with the 350Z build. It took a bit longer than expected but as you'll see the ECM flash was complicated by this version being unsupported by the "UpRev" brand tuning software. Once the card was updated, they could crack into it for tuning. Alarmingly, the Nismo Cold Air Intake I had put on allowed dirt into the manifold. It came throught the hydrolock flapper valves on the tubing...a horrible design (so much for quality stock Nissan parts I guess). Engine damage if any is undetermined at this point. We show and discuss the oil, fuel mods and show the underbody ducting and installation of the STS rear mount turbo. I make up a funny word along the way, "densify" and talk about the specific goals, durability, and rwhp of the build and how I like the 350Z's underdog nature. To run with a Z06 this car will have to push the 1/4 in 11.7 secs, trapping at 124 mph (Road and Track official Corvette Z06 test data w xlnt driver, sea level). That might be a tall order but I'm hopeful and this car's allow about that challenge. TacticalDoodle, Rick, and I share some laughs as the technical talk progresses. If you're considering forced induction, this another vid worth your time.
