So the head and valvetrain have me intriqued in how the VQ37 is going to handle boost. Not so much in terms of how much power the motor can support but how can the infinitely adjustable intake "cam" and someone like Technosquare or JWT using that to their advantage when tuning a VQ37 turbo setup.
Thoughts, comments, suggestions?
Keep an eye out for new products coming out this year... some include exhaust cams, throttle bodies, intake manifolds, etc. I think there are two companies working on some exhaust camshaft designs and one company working on an intake manifold.
Tuning the ecu will be the most time consuming & expensive R&D project for most tuner shops & manufacturers. Nissan did a pretty good job at making things complicated.
I think the average street Z34 (tuned for reliability, weather conditions, pump gas) w/ forced induction, low / reliable boost settings, mild upgrades, should do between 420whp-480whp. *This can vary depending on the dyno. I've already seen a 30whp variance between 4 dynos in the last 2 months. 3 dyno jets & 1 superflow.
