The December issue of Modified Mag reviews some bolts-ons for their project Z.
  • Secret Weapon Intake
  • DC Sports Exhaust
  • Altered Atmosphere Motorsports (AAM) plenum spacer
  • AAM ECU reflash
The AAM plenum advertises a 10 rear-whp for $269. They dyno'd the Z for a baseline at 220rwhp. After the install that went up to 233rwhp. Ummm ... that's right at $20 per rwhp.

Then AAM offered their ECU reflash and they ended up with a dyno of 246rwhp.

P.S. Was just about to post this .. when I noticed something. The first page of the article shows the Modified Mag Z on the dyno. I looked down and to the bottom right is a "350Z TECH" in a red box. :)

AAM is a wonderful shop.

I picked up 25/24 peak and 30/30 midrange (whp/wheel torque) from similar parts and headers.

Going to have them do the HKS Supercharger install with VPro and custom tune. Should be fun.

HAHAHAHA I was just about to post almost the same thing. I just bought the same mag here and read the article lol. But you beat me to it. :banghead: I was hoping to get my first advice post lol. **** IT. I have been buing all the magzines that I can find so I know what I am talking about... well somewhat. but here is one ?

You said the heavy wheels are taking the horsepower. I read that every 6 lbs you add to a wheel you loose 1hp. I was thinking of going with some 19 inch rims. Is it going to cut my hp alot or alittle?

you want light weight for more than just power. Lighter wheels stop and turn much better also.

My 19" wheels weigh less than the stock 17" :) So it's all in what you buy.

I think 19" looks great on the Z. Just make sure they aren't more than say 25lb each. In comparison, the TE37 I bought in 19" are just around 19lb.



I'm not sure about the 1 hp loss per added 6 lb. Wheels are rotating mass.. so it's worse off. You can save quite a bit of weight by reducing mass on items that rotate.

the old bike theory was for every 7lb you lost, you "gained" 1hp.

Well on in the newbie thread. There is a sticky that says
Wheels: If you are most interested in looks, 19” might be your best bet. Just remember the 2 negatives of 19” tires. Negative #1 is you will run a very low profile tire thus more likely to bend a wheel (and ride a little rougher). Negative #2: weight of wheel is greater and for every 6lbs you add to a wheel/tire, you lose 1 hp.
That is in350z-tech

I am not a hundred percent positive. I am real new to this :newbie:
