I had and still having problems, but the car runs fine enough for me to drive daily and for others who have drove her... They are impressed, but to me it just ain't quick enough... Though not exactly what I wanted, seems like a huge money pit as well as a huge sorry monkey to work on... Along with most of the work I didn't do for various reasons (lack of time, and install prices being really good), so sometimes I feel uncomfortable about her.


Before turbo, my car dyno'd with only exhaust at 249 WHP... Then after the turbo was installed I did 322 WHP, which is more lower than many others with the same kit :(

So still trying to figure out what is causing this, is it fuel pressure, is it the ECU flash program, etc.


But I got some plans that should go into effect at the end of this month... Like getting my Emanage Ultimate installed and tune'd. Getting a new intake manifold (plenum), new spark plugs (which I might have messed up since I am running really rich or was running really rich), boost controller/turbo timer, and upgrading the injectors from 380cc to 440cc... Along with a full return fuel system :)

Should fix all my problems and allow me to get closer to that 400 WHP mark :D

Thanks folk, took her to the strip before the boost... Best run on a hot humid day was 14.6 1/4 mile... And since my Z is the Base version it is open LSD so I was mostly spinning my one tire :laughing:

Def. looking forward to going to the track after the new mods.

Before the boost, only once and I did 14.6 so I ain't ashamed :driving:


Haven't been able to go cause I was running so rich and was worried about possible problems that can come from running WOT.

And thanks, also I do miss my EP3 sometimes... Cause it would be so much easier and cheaper to work on and modify... You won't believe the difference in cost of parts for the Z.

My single turbo kit is one of the cheapest ones you and buy. At that was at $4700 :SHOCKED: Twin Turbo's lets not go there :eek:

Yep and there are folks who can drop more than 7K for a basic twin turbo kit :SHOCKED:

Or how about almost 6K for a supercharger kit :driving:

you wouldn't want to see what people drop on the is300 boards. Average prices on a turbo setup/install - about 8-10 grand.
