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!

We wanted to take a minute to offer a HUGE CONGRATS to our friend and sponsored driver Aaron from CDub Racing! He went out to the 2016 DSM/EVO shootout and ran the rounds. Came home with a new personal best, and some hardware to add to his collection!!
Happy to play a small part in this operation! Aaron picked up almost .5 from his personal best to an ET of 7.96, all utilizing a Haltech ECU Elite series EMS. Check our Facebook video section for footage of Hal tuning this killer a few weeks back!
This time last year our drag car was stuck in the 9’s. A chassis that didn’t want to cooperate, a torque converter that wasn’t responding to our needs, and a suspension setup for a car with 1/2 the power we’re working with.
The first step to moving ETs South, remedy all these issues. We sent the chassis to a well known shop in Indiana, we proudly represent the work they did on the sunroof delete at every stop on the IFO leg. If you get a chance to see us in person, ask us for our YELP review of the service we received, we’re happy to indulge with our opinion. Take a look for yourself, we think you’ll be thoroughly impressed.
That passive aggressive picture post made me feel so much better….After the 6 months of chassis jail was up, we had some real help from the boys at Import Drag Solutions and PTC Torque Converters. The coilovers we had used last season came off, and on went a set of IDS conversion brackets and Viking shocks. The combo continues to prove it’s worth, and the guys at IDS are KILLING it with the support. Contact us for ordering, we are an authorized dealer and installer! The converter was a huge change as well, getting on the 2 step is a breeze now, and the car is working 100x better.
The Indianapolis IFO event was a blast. We were in the pits with all of our friends, all working towards a common goal. Aaron Gregory came out with his DSM, after a switch to new fuel and a few chassis updates. We had it on the rollers a couple weeks prior and knew first hand this thing was ready to EAT. In qualifying, on 10-15psi less boost than last year, he was already within .2 seconds of his best ET yet, throwing up 8.50s like nothing.
A few more snaps from the day:
We went rounds all day, consistently turning mid 8 second passes. We hit a new personal best, 8.41 @ 169mph, before heading into the finals against Aaron and his DSM. The final round was called and we sat with Aaron on the tree. Managed to edge out the win, but by a margin of victory you’d miss if you blinked. It was just .01 that separated us at the finish line. Check out the link below for a video recap!

Big Congratulations to David Daughtery who drove the Dynosty-tuned Nissan Motorsports 370Z to win the SCCA National Championship title at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca. Despite some serious carnage on track and a tough battle as the tires faded, David was able to drive back around the competition to secure 1st place for the finish.
Note the car features the number 8, which happens to be how many wins David has secured at the SCCA Nationals.
Great seeing customers with the wheels up at the 2014 DSM Shootout in Norwalk this weekend. Big congratulations to Jesse of CDUB for 2nd place in the 4G63 powered orange fox body, and Josh on his new best 9.1 1/4 mile in the black Evo-powered Mustang. Both cars are powered by turbocharged 4G63 engines and Haltech standalone engine management systems.
Dynosty is proud to partner with WannaGoFast to bring you the Chicago 1/2 Mile on the beautiful Bult Field runway. If you haven’t been, this is a great opportunity to legally race your car from a dig or a roll. The environment is unlike anywhere else, relaxed but exciting.
This event sells out early, so be sure to register early or contact us to pre-register. Let us know if you have any questions. Hope to see you there!
It’s not everyday you see a Ford Mustang powered by a Mitsubishi Evo 4G63 engine, but we were excited to get this on the dyno rollers for engine break-in and tune. With a solid base calibration it was off to the track, where a couple shakedown passes worked out the bugs and then with an easy launch it went 9.8 @ 144mph in the 1/4 mile. More to come as Josh gets more seat time and we turn it up.
The setup consists of a fully built Evo9 4G63 engine with a Masfab custom header and Garrett GT42 turbo. E98 fuel is used, and engine management is a Haltech Pro Plugin with M&W ignition, tuned by Hal at Dynosty.
Here is a video clip Josh sent in of the 9.8 drag pass
If you were unable to attend TX2K13, here are some pictures of what you missed in Houston Texas. The TX2K event continues to grow and is a great time to see fast cars on the road course, dyno, drag strip and the street. As usual, the event featured plenty of heavily modified turbo Toyota Supras, countless Nissan GTRs, twin turbo Lamborghinis, Ferraris and more.
We had the opportunity to get the Turbo Scion FR-S to the 1/4 mile drag strip, and while we arrived later than anticipated, we were able to squeeze in 2 runs before they closed Lucas Oil Raceway for the season. The FR-S passed tech inspection and lined up in the lanes, as the announcer stated “No more vehicles to the lanes – this is the last pass of the night.” The first pass down the track yielded a 11.1 @ 127.9mph on a soft launch, setting the current world record for Quickest and Fastest FR-S / BRZ. On the return road the track official was kind enough to wave us into the lanes again considering we only had 1 run. The second pass backed up the 11.1 with an 11.2. There is a lot left in the car, and we hope to get to another track before they close for winter. Stay tuned for more!
The Scion FR-S features the Dynosty FR-S BRZ single turbo build package, which includes: Dynosty Turbo FRS BRZ Feed Pipe Garrett GT2871 Turbo with Tial V-Band Inlet/Outlet Turbocharger Dynosty 3″ SS Downpipe Tial MVR Wastegate and Tial Q Blow Off Valve Front Mount Intercooler Dynosty Intercooler Piping Kit Dynosty Intake Pipe with K&N Intake Filter Clutchmaster FX Clutch and Flywheel Agency Power Header Dynosty Spec Colder Spark Plugs Deatschwerks High Flow Fuel Pump Injector Dynamics 850cc Fuel Injectors Haltech Standalone Engine Management System Haltech Wideband Controller Haltech Boost Controller Dynosty ECU Flash with EcuTek
