"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.
