2012 Nissan 370Z

Nissan Project 370Z debuts with 504 horsepower

Nissan wrapped up its crowd-sourced Project 370Z and released a new video showing the dyno-tune session and interior improvements.

Back in February, Nissan invited fans to participate in what it’s calling "Project 370Z." In an effort to highlight the numerous options available on the new 2013 Nissan 370Z, Nissan gave fans the opportunity to create a project Z in which they got to choose how the car was put together.

Nissan has finally wrapped up work on the 2013 Nissan 370Z crowd-sourced car and has released a video of the dyno-tune session and the improvements fans made to the interior. With the improvements made to the engine, Nissan put the car on the dyno and wound up with somewhere around 504 horsepower. This shows what a few bolt-on parts can do to improve the performance of a stock 370Z.

Phase one Project 370Z updates

For the first phase of the build, fans chose a GReddy twin turbo kit, which pumped up horsepower on the 3.7-liter V-6 considerably. The stock Z engine gets 332 horsepower, and the twin-turbo kit made a big difference in horsepower and performance.

Fans also chose to use a GReddy Ti-C catback exhaust that will help the 500 plus horsepower engine breathe easier. Nissan also installed a KW suspension setup and bigger brakes from StopTech to handle the extra stopping power needed on the project car.
