With a great history of successfully campaigning 350Zs the time has come to see what we can do with a 370Z. Initially we are running a largely stock Nissan 370Z Nismo with addition of Precision 67mm turbo and tuning on E85. Warning: While we understand we are beyond the limits of the factory components we have chosen to see what it can do. First pass out broke the 1/4 mile record at 10.40 seconds, and we have continued to whittle it down since. Most recently the Z ran 10.03 in competition at Import Face-Off in St Louis, MO. With better weather and a bit of luck we expect to see a 9 second time slip coming soon!

In an interesting twist to a track Miata, Scott chose to try a rear mount turbo for track use. His goal was increasing engine horsepower while keeping under-hood temperatures as low as possible. Build details include: 02 1.8L VVT Engine swap CT26 Turbo, rear mount with twin wastegates for boost control as low as 3psi
If you’re viewing this blog post, chances are you have an idea of the real world difference between off the shelf canned tunes and a complete custom calibration. For many, mail order calibrations based on vehicle notes (modifications/driving style etc) is the only option. Truth be told, the people that arrive to us with canned/basemap calibrations end up being lifetime clients once we’ve given their ECU a once over. Drivability is one of our biggest concerns, WOT is fairly simple in comparison. We believe this to be what separates us from the pack!
(Not a BRZ pictured above, I know, but look at that quality keyboard control #HalibrationStation)
MOVING ALONG…..We had a great example of the contrast between the two tuning styles with Sam’s BRZ. It arrived to our shop with a mixture of small issues. Boost level was inconsistent, AFR was pig rich in various spots on the map, would die out in traffic regularly, choppy low speed/low RPM cruising, so on and so forth. From a mechanical standpoint, we battled boost levels a bit but ended up getting the curve where we needed it. On 7-8lbs of boost, we were able to churn out 315-320whp from run to run with great consistency. The turbo kit is a custom unit built by Driven Performance, and uses an internally gated Borg Warner, front mount, full exhaust, stock injectors. The kit looked to be great quality with much attention to detail. The FR-S/BRZ community has been one of our biggest supporters in recent years. We have invested hundreds of hours in seat time to learn these systems front to back, all in the name of passing that knowledge into our clients ECUs! For a calibration like this, give us a call M-F 8-5pm EST. Our schedule gets more and more dense closer to spring time, we will do all we can to get you on the rollers as soon as you need!
Coming to us from NY, Mark’s 2005 Infiniti G35 arrived with a full tank of 93 octane gasoline. We proceeded to load it on the dyno at our facility in Louisville, KY for a complete dyno tune. After calibrating drivability and low boost tuning, it was time to see what the 3.5L built VQ35 could do. The commands were sent down the line, from Hal to the Haltech, to the boost controller, to the wastegates… and the twin 58mm Precision Turbos were brought up to ~20psi. The result was an impressive, record-setting 742HP at the wheels and 592TQ. Congratulations Mark on a well put together setup and truly impressive numbers on a pump gas 3.5L VQ build.
After upgrades and a tune, this Toyota Tundra put down 557 horsepower at the rear wheels and 581 torque. The 5.7L 3UR-FE engine and has the following upgrades: TRD Supercharger ID 1000cc Fuel Injectors with upgraded fuel pump Upgraded supercharger pulley Transmission upgrade Haltech Elite 2500 engine management Dyno Tune by Hal at Dynosty
This stealthy Infiniti G35 came to Dynosty with a Vortech supercharger wanting more power. We prepared a two step plan to meet the customer’s requests and budget. Phase 1 included a Dynosty built 3.5L VQ35DE engine, turbo kit, minor fuel upgrades, and suspension/wheels/tires. The result is a very solid-footed car that plants over 600 Horsepower to the ground on 93octane pump gas.
Stay tuned for Phase 2 which will include further fuel upgrades to support E85 and more power.
Modifications include: Dynosty 3.5L VQ35DE Engine with CP Pistons, Carrillo Rods, Tomei Cams Haltech Platinum Pro Plugin 350Z ECU with Wideband Controller and Advanced Boost Control Dynosty Pro Tune with Advanced Traction Control Boosted Performance Twin Scroll Turbo Kit with PTE 6766 Turbocharger Tial Wastegates and Blow Off Valve Bilstein Coilover Suspension Enkei Wheels with 315 Wide MT ET Street Radial Tires
Customer Testimonial: Kevin B of IN, January 23, 2014: Dynosty does excellent work. They are consummate professionals and take the time to help you make the best decisions when upgrading your ride. Hands down best around for Nissan/Infiniti upgrades and tuning.
This 2014 Ford F150 Raptor equipped with the 6.2L V8 engine came in for a dyno tune gained 20WHP over the course of the tuning session. The custom calibration was dyno tuned at Dynosty using HP Tuners Beta tuning platform. Final numbers were 351WHP and 383TQ.
The past 5 years brought many changes for this Honda S2000, growing up from a bolt-on Science of Speed Supercharger setup to a 800+HP turbocharged monster! Dynosty was there for every step along the way, starting with a Dynosty Stroker Motor, supercharger upgrades, Haltech standalone engine management installation and tuning, Toyota Supra V160 6speed transmission swap, Suspension and wheel/tire upgrades, Ford rear end swap, Cylinder head upgrades, Flex-Fuel fuel system upgrade and finally Turbocharging! The end result is an absolute monster that spools well and effectively puts the power to the ground at all times. This S2000 is a joy to drive and has massive acceleration in any gear.

Some Nissan GT-Rs are destined to stay stock, while others are bought with bigger things in mind. In this case, this Black Edition R35 GT-R arrived at our facility in Louisville KY directly from the dealership for a complete build. With everything taken apart we called on our friends at Sheptrans for the best transmission package possible, and sourced an Alpha 12 turbo kit as we are an authorized Alpha reseller and installation facility. A short time later it was hitting our dyno rollers for a 1300+WHP calibration and then off to private testing. Once everything was dialed in to the owner’s liking the car proceeded to win multiple events, from Arm Drop races to Drag events at Bristol Dragway.
Modifications to this Nissan GT-R include: Dynosty 3.8L VR38DETT Engine Package Sheptrans Stage 4.5+ Transmission Upgrade Alpha 12 Turbo Kit MoTeC M150 Standalone Engine Control with adjustable launch control Dynosty Transmission programming using EcuTek Dynosty GT-R Fuel System with triple pump and 12 ID Injectors DSS Axles with ARP studs
This 2009 Nissan GT-R arrived on a custom “E-Tune” that had been performed by another tuner over the internet. While the E-Tuner has a good reputation, there was great room for improvement with a Dynosty custom dyno tune. By optimizing the fuel, ignition, boost and other tables we were able to gain over 200 ft/lb of TQ in some places. Peak numbers do not tell the whole story – check out the comparison dyno chart below to see the huge gains throughout the powerband.

Dustin’s Scion FR-S received a BEAMS 3SGE engine swap just in time for TX2K15. Days before departure the turbo kit was coming together. Hours before departure it was loaded on the dyno for a full tune. A few days and 2000 miles later it was returning home from it’s successful maiden voyage from Kentucky to Houston TX.
Coming from a Toyota MR2, Dustin was very familiar with the 3S engine series. The BEAMS variant was an obvious choice for his FR-S engine swap, combining the solid cast iron inline 4 cylinder block with an improved cylinder head featuring dual cam control. Once the engine was in place planning began for the rest of the setup. A custom turbo manifold feeds a Precision Turbo 5866 billet turbo, which feeds a custom RacerX/Dynosty intake manifold. The FR-S was originally equipped with Drive By Wire, and that feature was retained and improved upon with a larger throttle body and a Haltech Elite 2500 standalone engine management system. The Haltech Elite 2500 has standalone control of the engine, and flawlessly runs the dual cam control, drive by wire, knock control and more.
The BEAMS 3SGE swapped Scion FR-S is just getting started at 330WHP on low boost and 93 octane pump gas – which would be near the limit on the stock boxer FA20 engine found in the FR-S. Check out the dyno chart and video below, and stay tuned for more updates as we increase boost, rev limiter, and setup flex fuel for E85 tuning.
In 2013 we consulted with Wade on his 1995 Toyota Supra and came up with a great high performance build package. We settled on a Dynosty built 3.0L 2JZ-GTE engine, Hypertune intake manifold, Full Race exhaust manifold and a Precision Turbo 6766 divided turbo to maximize spool and top end performance. The goal was balanced drivability and performance. Wade installed the parts and trailered the car in for the Dynosty engine break-in program and dyno tune. The package worked together perfectly, giving quick spool and 860WHP (fuel limited), and ran 179MPH in the half mile.
After a year of enjoying the Supra it returned for engine management upgrade and fuel system upgrade. With a new Haltech Elite monitoring fuel pressure, the Injector Dynamics ID1300cc injectors and Walbro fuel pumps were pushed a little harder to the tune of 900+WHP. The Haltech Elite’s traction control was then configured, allowing the mighty 2JZ to deliver maximum possible power to the ground!
Customer Testimonial: Wade H of Dallas TX, December 29, 2013: Dynosty helped me build and completely tune my 1995 Toyota Supra. Their work and product backing was phenomenal. They thoroughly answered any questions I had and walked me though the whole process of building my car and recommending the parts best suited for my needs. The business is very well structured and the shop itself is very professionally equipped and staffed! Thanks guys!
