Glad you are enjoying your modifications...

287 at the crank...expect about 240 to the rear wheels stock...

Agree with toykilla's estimate..

Not enough...maybe add another zero. This engine is not cheap to modify to the whp you are looking for. As far as we know to date...you'll have to add Forced Induction...either a Super Charger or Single or Twin Turbo to hit that number.

Look here for more info...

There is no computer chip that's going to add horsepower to the Z...period.

You have spent $1800 wisely, IMO. Gained a conservative 1whp per $100 spent.

You could add a true dual exhaust and gain another 8-12 for $800-$1100 depending on you choice...which will come in handy should you decide to add F/I.

Or, if you want an apperance mod...you could get a nice set of aftermarket wheels.

I'd suggest a UD Pulley & True Dual Exhaust.
Use the other grand for Clutch & flywheel or if you're AT a Valve Body adjustment.

To break 340 you will need to go FI :headshake:
There are a lot of us aiming for the 300 mark N/A.

Best of luck to you :shiftdrive:

well i already have Volk Racing winnig series 19" rims
they are made specifically for the 350z , they look nice..... :OMG:

well i would want to add more accessories to it though from the outside. skirt spoiler and all.
my car color is the same like yours....daimond graphite.

well the exhaust will be an option definately.

i will be looking forward for a nismo body kit

I think the flywheel and clutch + pulleys is a good suggestion, well help you free horse power from the crank. you also should look at improving your handling, HP isn't everything.. add some sway bars and springs, it will help the car use the extra few horses and shed some tenths of your time.

and a 350Z-TECH.COM sticker will give you extra 40 HP

Are you looking for 340 crank HP or wheel HP?

Crank should be easy to come by, but wheel will be pushing it.

For crank...
I'll quote what I told another Z owner about modding his Z...
"I would get the following...

Tomei 268 Camshafts
Injen Cold-Air Intake
Injen or Borla Cat-Back Exhaust
Nexus or Crawford Headers
Nexus Test Pipes
Altered Atmosphere Intake Plenum Spacer
2005 Nissan OEM Lower Intake Plenum
Unorthodox Racing Crankshaft Pulley
Technosquare Full-Spec ECu Reflash

I'm not sure about what else.

Some custom things you may want to try. A Moreso fuel cooling can/tank. Here's what I would do, lighten the Z, carbon fiber hood, lexan glass in the stock hatch, take the tar out of the back, take the spare and jack out (unless you need it, if you don't want to get AAA), get a Hawk racing battery (maybe it's called Hawker? not sure, and I never found out if the performance of the battery changed or not) and i'd relocate it to behind the seats. And mount the fuel cooling can/tank in the compartment where the battery used to sit and then hook the fuel lines up to it. For every 10 degrees you cool the fuel, you gain 2-4% hp, use the fuel cooling plus 100+ octane (which the OEM Ecu will adjust timing) and you should see some pretty good gains.

I wish though...that someone would step up and make a more simple design carbon fiber complete front bumper replacement, rear bumper, and side skirts. (CWest just ain't cutting it, Wald side skirts replace the stock side skirt) And also CF fenders...every little bit counts."

Some of that stuff may not pertain to you. :rolf2:

Cheap and easy horsepower gain is Nitrous.

I have not read all that much about NO2 on 350's but something to look into.
