Definitely don't have a problem with 'em, but why choose a new 370Z versus, for instance, a 350 that would be cheaper used? Are 370 that much more advanced even modified vs. modified? I also feel most anything that would show wear from a used car would be pulled out or replaced to make the race car.

I'm seriously just asking, never built a race car and curious.

i believe a customer bought a brand new 370z, and brought it to them and said 'have fun' essentially while paying for whatever they needed to build it

The 370 rev matches for you on downshift right? Did you take that feature out? If not, how does it work for you on the track? I've never driven a car that does that.

I don't THINK its a customers car but not positive, also they have a base non sport so no syncro rev match.

Doug, stop being such a child and post under your TopSpeed name. It looks really immature and self-serving when another vendor tries to douche up one of our threads.

All work leading up to this track test was performed in house at our shop. After the car was delivered to the customer, they installed a turbo kit, and many other modifications as well but that is beyond the scope of this "first impressions" thread. We recently tuned the car to 520whp on the Dyno Dynamics, which is a stock block dyno record. Thanks for looking.


Here are a couple pics from the original build up:

Looking sexy! I've always wanted a fully built NA Z, they just sound so amazing! Keep up the good work.

I traded in my 370z for a 2010 STi for no other reason than I needed the extra room. I LOVED my 370z and if I had it to do over again I would want the Syncro Package. I had KW suspensions on it and it handled very well and will be disappointed if my STi doesn't handle as well. I know the power won't be the same because of 1.2 liters of displacedment more on the 370 plus less drivetrain loss so that sucks but the STi should be easier to get the power to the ground. In for Updates on the track ! How did you overcome fuel starvation and brake icing issues ?

This is why my Subie goes to Forged now. The work is awesome and I believe Sharif has one of the best shops in the country.

Hey Sharif, any idea how much it weighed before the turbo kit was installed? I'm looking at another car and am curious.

Couldn't agree more man. Forged has always taken care of me and has a very friendly staff that knows what they are doing. They are willing to spend the time needed to make sure it done correctly. Im actually taking mine there next Thursday for tuning on my 2010 STI, they even called in a special favor to have Siegel come in and do the tuning for me.
