Peter let this little nugget drop on the other forum.

"When APS releases the Single Sidewinder Intercooled Dual ball bearing Turbo system you will then see it's possible to have a much broader Power and Torque range when you use much improved exhaust manifolding which retains more of the heat energy to drive the turbocharger."

I doubt it would be designed to pass ADRs as it probabally removes the stock cats. So I wouldnt hold your breath if your Australian but its always good to hear of other 350z products.

Wait, Peter, who doesn't stop talking about how horrible a single turbo is in a 350Z, is releasing a single turbo kit? :ahhh:

APS designed and tested several different single turbo systems and it seems the demand is there whether he thinks it is the optimum solution or not. Some people just love the surge of power a large single setup gives, and by the sounds of it, their design should be better than Turbonetics.

Based on what little I know about Peter's history, I have no doubt that his system will be amazing. I was just surprised to hear the news. But yeah, you're right, the demand does seem to be there. So why not try to capitalize on it

Dirn I'm not anti single turbo systems, it's just that twin turbos on a V configuration engine will always generate the best and most powerful result across the entire rpm range...........Period.

Now I can understand the motivation behind building a single turbo system (the only reason we did not release a single turbo system from day one is that's it's impossible to apply for a CARB EO with a single turbo) and the bottom line is less cost for the consumer, though make no mistake the lower cost comes with a penality, lower performance.............maybe this lower upfront cost and less performance (and no CARB EO capability) suits some guys in different places of the states and for that matter on the planet.

Now I'm sure that APS can produce the single turbo system and achieve the best possible turbo and manifold match so that low to mid rpm engine response is not compromised too much, ultimately a single turbo systen will never have the power across the entire rpm range, though if the turbo is matched correctly and the manifolding designed to transfer gas energy efficiently I believe the APS single will offer a really good alternative to the centrifugal SC and be very competitive on cost.......this is our target consumer and we want to cater for the entire FI market not just the elite. :thumbsup:

I trust you now understand that APS knows much about the performance of the single turbo on the Z engine, afterall I was testing the single turbo Z product over a year ago............bottom line it's horses for courses and superior engine performance always comes at a small premium.

Thanks

Peter

By no means to mean to imply that I thought you were anti single turbo. I just meant that I knew you believed that the Z wasn't the best application for one
