Well I’m proud to announce Custom Performance Engineering (CPE) has chosen my Z to be the proto-type car in their research and development of a MAFci System for the 350z. CPE is located in Beltsville MD and is very well known through out the Mazda community for accomplishing great numbers (Gains) with their MAFci System. I met with Josh and the rest of his team last night at their shop, and I got to tell you…these guys are great, very knowledgeable group of guys which gives me full confidence to hand my FairladyZ over to them for development. Hopefully if all goes well we should see a prototype in a few weeks. If you would like to learn more about CPE go to www.cp-e.com and check out company info and also check out the dyno graphs tell me what you think. All in All I’m very excited about their product Idea and can’t wait to see some results. That’s all for now, but I will keep the forum posted on progress. :clap: :clap:

Awesome, I've always had a feeling the VQ35DE is a monster waiting to find the right combination of mods to unlock its potential.

Hey, even when the RB series first came out, a few years passed before people realized they were capable of serious numbers out of the stock block..

This thread genarates from another forum, Thought i would post the roots of this thread so you know where I'm coming with all this.


Post#1

Hello,

We are currently looking into developing a MAFci System for the 350z. MAFci Systems are our, Custom Performance Engineering, line of intake systems. It is the first line of intelligent intakes designed specifically for mass air sensor equipped cars and trucks. The Nissan mass air flow sensor makes the 350z perfect candidate for the MAFci System.

Every MAFci system includes a high flow aFe reusable filter and all the associated plumbing (Usually 3.5" OD pipe), a bigger mass air sensor housing, associated hardware, and a MAF Customizer. The MAF Customizer is what allows the use of bigger mass air housing and is also used to tune the car for gains not possible with other intakes. Typical gains on a V6 are around 15-25 wheel hp and 17-30 wheel hp on a V8.

This post is to see if there is interest among the 350z owners. If we could get a list of about 15 people who would be interested, if the above stated gains were realized, that would be enough to start research and development. We do not expect money we just want a list to determine if there is interest out there. If there is interest then we will develop and test a prototype to determine if the gains are there. If they are we would like to sell it if not the project will be scrapped.

We are also looking for a 350z in the Washington DC, Baltimore area to do the development on. In return the owner will receive a free tunable intake for use on his/her 350z.

We would also like your input. What types of things would you like to see included in the design of this intake.

Please visit www.mazda6tech.com, www.mazda6club.com to see voiced opinions of our products. Please also check out the dyno video of the STi MAFci System on our web page, www.cp-e.com. Please direct all e-mails, questions to Josh Adams at [email protected]. Thank you again for your time.



Very Respectfully,

Custom Performance Engineering, Inc.

Hello,

The board members of CP-E have given the 350z MAFci System the go ahead for research and development. The engineers are very excited to start the project.

We would like a little more feed back from all of you. Would you like to see the intake for the 350z/G35 in a short ram intake with a heat shield or a CAI? Please contact Josh Adams at [email protected] for any other volunteers. Currently we do not have a prototype vehicle.


Very Respectfully,

Custom Performance Engineering, Inc.

Hello,

Yes the car will have dyno numbers and be dyno tuned. We have found a great candidate for prototyping. "suse" came by tonight with his well kept, clean cut, 350z and I believe he liked what he saw. We will start more extensive research and development after the Thanksgiving holiday as soon as he can drop it off. Please keep posting your comments on a CAI vs. short ram with heat shield. The more information everyone provides the more material we have for research and development. Thank you again for all the help.


Very Respectfully,

Custom Performance Engineering, Inc.



So people post your thought?

I have a 2004 G35 Coupe and I am definitely interested! :thumbsup:

As far as short ram vs. CAI... will you be able to develop and test a prototype of each? Also, I know its early in the process, but what are your thoughts on your product coexisting with a N20 system?

I am in the Balto/DC area and would love to stop by and have a peek.

We'll I"m droping off my Z to cp-e so they can start on the design and testing of the MAFIc system. They will be doing a short ram 1st then I believe they will do a CAI and compare the gains. I'll keep you guys posted
