Ive seen videos with the VQ35 puking itself at little over 450 hp, but that was the early production motors so I dunno. Prolly also teething problems with the equipment. 100 Hp should be doable on the stock internals. Figure pretty much every motor can double its stock Hp fairly safely. Some motors are the exception to that rule, but not many.Touring0350z said:I'm more concerned on boost issues as compression not being boost friendly. This isn't a race car nor will it ever be. But an extra 100+ hp would be nice for mergin in traffic if the motor is stout enough to handle it with that compression.

As for your question the stock VG30dett can handle 600+rwhp. A stock engine/turbo can boost 13psi safely so long as the engine in in good condition.
Your next few post will decide if I ban you or not. And don't reply to the others I will delete their post but I can see why they think of you in such a poor light.Touring0350z said:I'm watching you too.....
I am not going to put anywhere near 600hp to a stock internal motor on the Z. I want it between 360-400 safely and be done with that car. It's not going to be for track only. Just if she wants to race at the track she can have some fun practicing getting faster.
Here is the info you requested,Touring0350z said:The car is an '03 Touring edition w/auto so I have no clue what motor it is.
Jen's car is an '04 w/6spd
Ps - I will watch what I say on the next couple post so I don't get banned but after that I can't promise anything
Shane Hill knows his shit for sure. That Z is crazy fast for a Z car. But you and I both know Michelle isn't ready for anything like that. I just want it something she will have fun with and have something to practice with.Andrew91GT said:Quote by ShaneH on turbomustangs.com:
G35 is 8 inches longer than the 350Z, but for all intents and purposes, the drivetrains are functionally identical. The 350Z/G35 will be the 5.0 mustang of the new generation. Between the two, they sold over 140,000 in the 2nd year. Compare that to the STI which sold 12,000 and the EVO8 which sold 9,000. Plus the aftermarket is really stepping up. Like most newer cars, the motor needs rods and pistons, but there are guys making 1200hp only having changed those two things. I'm seriously considering buying one this year and using one of APS twin turbo kits on it.
Cool video from that post - is it someone from this site?
JAMESZ said:The bottom end is all forged. The rods are typically weak, but every failure I have seen related to boost has had ring damage (not from detonation).
In the local club we have a member who has a 10 second Z running alot of Nitrous. He is on his 3rd motor now I believe. Everything internally is now aftermarket except for the new crank.
Though I wouldn't do much with the 5AT. There is a S/C'd Z with the 5AT here and the transmission just won't shift.
From experience no. It won't necessarily blow up. It will cause bigger problems when it fails to shift. The Z I mentioned earlier went to 8k rpms because the tranny would not shift.Touring0350z said:Whill the auto tranny handle 360-400rwhp?
