300ZX Twin Turbo Dyno Tunes on Haltech Pro Plugin

Recently we completed two Z32 300ZX Twin Turbo dyno tunes. Both were updated from reflashed stock computers to the much superior Haltech Platinum Pro Plug-In standalone engine managements. The Haltech EMS is a complete replacement for the stock computer and plugs directly into the stock harness. The standalone also enables live speed density tuning, so there is no need for maf splitters or waiting to mail tunes in and out. The end result of both was better performance and improved drivability.

The first Z32 300ZX was on stock turbos with upgraded Nismo injectors. The results was an impressive 337whp and almost matching torque.

Scion tC Dezod Turbo Tune

Glad this Dezod turbocharged Scion tC found it’s way to us for a tune due to how poor the tune was prior. The car was fouling spark plugs while driving and was unable to go into boost without breaking up. We started with a fresh set of properly gapped plugs and after Hal spent some time on the dyno straightening out the air fuel ratio and timing maps it was running much better. Performance modifications included a Dezod turbo kit and AEM FIC engine management.

LS1 Powered Nissan 240SX S13 Drift Car Tune

Nissan 240SX Drift Car S13 LS1 outside

It was great having Jonathan in with his LS1 powered S13 Nissan 240SX drift car. The LS1 swap included some upgrades including Trick Flow heads, cam, headers and FAST intake manifold. We used HPTuners to recalibrate the stock computer on the dyno, with goals of maximizing performance and reliability. Gains of 10+hp were made over the preexisting tune all while making the LS1 safer to drift. Keep an eye out for this car as an up-and-coming performer.

350Z GTM Twin Turbo Install and Tune

A combination of bright yellow, and stealthy black intercooler makes for a car that catches your eye but is a sleeper at the same time. When this Nissan 350Z came to us from Oklahoma, it was a strong NA setup making 238 horsepower at the wheels on our Dyno Dynamics. A GTM Twin Turbo kit was selected by the customer, and we began installation along with supporting modifications including Dynosty stage 2 fuel feed and return system, Injector Dynamics ID1000 injectors, Haltech Platinum Pro Plugin 350Z ECU, Haltech dual wideband, boost control, and more. The end result was a smooth-driving 350Z with serious performance when you ask for it. On 93 octane fuel, we dyno tuned the 350Z to 433WHP – stopping there due to the limitation of stock motor. Hopefully we will see this car back in for a built motor and see where the GTM Stage 2 Twin Turbo kit maxes out.

Check out the gallery of pictures from the event and the video footage of our 172MPH 350Z shakedown run.

LS3 powered Nova On Hot Rod Power Tour

1970 Nova LS3 powered at Dynosty

We had the privilege of tuning this beautifully built 1970 Nova, powered by a Chevrolet LS3 crate engine. Using HP Tuners, we were able to calibrate the fuel and ignition maps on the dyno. Power performance and fuel economy were maximized for cruising and full throttle prior to the car leaving for the 2013 Hot Rod Power Tour. The LS3 cranked out 325 horsepower at the wheels and matching torque, all through an automatic transmission. We received word that the car did great on the tour and managed some low 13’s in street trim.

Infiniti G35 Twin Turbo 6speed Build

RD_G35_Side

Last year we installed a custom twin Garrett GTX28 turbo setup on this G35 and managed 583HP at the wheels through a fully built GTM automatic transmission (previous blog post here). The turbo kit had more to give, but the transmission and engine were at their limits. This year the Infiniti G35 coupe returned to us for a fresh VQ35DE motor build, 6 speed manual transmission conversion, suspension upgrades and more. Here are a few pictures of the performance modifications and final dyno results.

Customer Testimonial: Raj D of NC, August 21, 2012:
Many thanks to Hal, Dustin, and the crew at Dynosty for a job well done. How would I rate the experience? They get an A for customer service, A for integrity, A for knowledge/expertise, A for workmanship/quality. Only nick in the armor is that I’d give them a B for meeting time expectations as I ended up missing ZdayZ, though I was warned that that might happen. It was a complex build (details like fuel voltage regulation, oil return, etc I haven’t mentioned among other nice touches) but still I was given hope it would be done in time. They did work hard to try to meet that deadline but they would not release the car half done or untested, and well, the result is what it is. Bottom line, they have earned my trust and my future business.

The car has been tuned to perfection. It starts and drives perfectly – no hiccups, no hesitation – just smooth power to redline. I cannot feel any transmission issues while on the road. It pulls much better up top than it used to, spools just about as quickly, and has so much room to grow.
