I believe KShep has it. You can PM him about it or just wait for a response. Its putting down from mid 300's to lower 400's at the wheels on average I believe depending on boost and tuning.

I have the kit and like it. I still think it is overpriced, but I have put over 30K miles on it so far. My dyno on it was 352 rwp. I commute about 140 miles per day and do alot of autoX. It has worked with no problems. I keep it set at 5 psi.

No dyno on mine yet...waiting to install J&S SafeGuard so I can pull timing. Goal is 380wrhp...don't want a window in my block and do not want to install forged rods / pistons. Very happy so far....

At stock boost you should have 350rwhp, upgrade the fuel pump recommended... that's 100(+)whp over stock and fine for most daily drivers..

I like it...the only two choices I had were PE or GReddy when I made the decision ...now I would consider the APS to have an edge...

The costs have come down on the GReddy TT...you need to factor in other costs as well...true dual exhaust, gauges, wider rubber etc...
Don't expect the engine to last as long and DO expect more maintenace visits...

I recommend it if you understand the costs associated with it. High performance engines break...Camry owners expect 200-300K trouble free miles from their car...Ferrari owners do not...

The best advice I got was TO FIND A REPUTABLE SHOP...tell them what your goals are for the car...then hash out the alternative routes you can take to get you there...

Cool thanks for the input. Yeah money is kind of tight for FI but I think I could put out about 6-7k total for FI. I know APS is great but I think is way expensive for me. The Z in not my daily car, but I was shooting at high 300s to low 400s of hp. As far as tunable how is the greddy at that?? I'm also keeping a close eye on the JWT kit that should be out soon. I'm hope to join the FI crew summer 05 if everything works out finacially. With Greddy you do lose your bumper support right??

The aluminum support bar in the front bumper cover must be removed for the GReddy install. The air bag sensor must be reloacted as well.

I don't think $7K will touch it unless you already have an upgraded exhaust and wider rubber.

APS supplies an ungraded fuel delivery system with the kit...along with other upgrades over the GReddy that make the pricing of their kit resonable.

GReddy is easily tunable with BOTH the e-manage and Profec E-01, ingnition harness or J&S SafeGuard...

I've had my Greddy kit for about 2 months, but my sponsorship now has me putting on an APS kit (I won't eat the install charges, but will pay a little premium). If you only have 6-7K to spend on FI, find a low mile used kit. Most new kits, coupled with just a few goodies and install charges, will run you 9-11K. A used kit will save you money up front and money associated with the BOV, aluminum flange, and welding (about $400 worth of savings). If you're interested, contact me. Here's pics of the work . . .

My 350Z TT

In addition to merely bolting up the kit, we port matched & "Jet Hot" coated the exhaust manifolds, polished the BOV, and stenciled the intercooler . . .

Very nice, I was considering port matching and ceramic coatings.

Any idea if this help performance in the real word? i.e Any dyno results before and after? or have you compared to another Greddy without these mods?

No dyno results or means to compare, but with the vehicle down for a week (during the install), we figured it couldn't hurt . . . I guess its more a matter of reflecting shop dedication to quality. I never requested they do it, but they did.

That is quality service. Most people do port matching to shorten spool up and improve flow characteristics, though im not sure you would be able to notice with the 3.5l V6 aftermarket twin setup as the spool would be very quick already. Still nice icing on the cake :)
