Actually the A/F will need some Tweaking for optimal perfomance once you open up the airflow on the Z. We like the UNI-CHIP from Dastek which has a plug n play ECM harness and installs with ease and removes like it was never there..We used a similar tuning device and saw 34 hp gains in the power band and like 18 peak...What most people do not realize is when manufactureres claim "PEAK" hp they seldom refer to how much it gains in the whole RPM range..Remember 10 hp @5000 rpms is more noticable than 20hp at redline...
So you will in fact need a way to add a little more fuel after leaning out the mixture with these mods..ALthough N/A engines are a bit more forgiving when it comes to running lean opposed to F/I engines..We can get you all the above items and the Uni-chip with a base map for exhaust and plenum...The uni-chip is around $900 installed and by far would prove to be the most useful mod you can do..As far as exhuasts you might as well save for headers at the same time for optimal performance.. :shiftdrive:

Julian, can I assume that the Uni-chip is a permanent install?  What I mean is that once you plug it in, does it stay with the car for optimal performance, or is it just something you plug in and use to reprogram the ECU?

Its a piggyback ECM unit that stays in the car,and is reprogramable.

So as long as you have the uni-chip, one could continue to mod the Z and also reprogram it for optimal performance?  If so, that sounds like a good investment for any mod-hungry enthusiast.

:stupid: Good question, is it programmable from like, inside the car? Hows it work?

It is reprogramable by an authorized Uni-chip dealer..Like us.. :thumbsup:

Oh, one more thing....you said the chip is programable by a certified dealer, now is it similar to the TS ECU that you can send it in to be  programed or does it have to be hooked up to the car in order to program.  I would assume being a plug n play and permanent install you would have to have it in the car but not sure.

can be tuned right in the car via cable connection...
