Dyno'd my car today BEFORE my custom plenum spacer is installed, it is being fabricated right now.

My highest numbers for today were 331.74 whp and 321.51 wtq
I'm not entirely impressed but neither shocked.

As for the plenum spacer, it will be similar to the one dinan produced. I should have it installed by early next week and can have more made. Once I install it and put about 300 miles on it(week or two), I will dyno it again and post the comparison

So, what's the purpose of the plenum spacer?

will this make the intake tract longer? that would lower the rpm target for the resonant tuning of the ITBs

Not exactly an apples to apples comparison.

In the case of the 350Z, it's an aluminum plenum, with a single throttle body. Heat soak is more of an issue, which the spacer somewhat helps

My current mod list

-uuc flywheel and clutch
-technik velocity stacks
-conforti shark injector
-magnaflow catback exhaust

My spacer will be made out of aluminum but if anybody wants one out of a different material that can be done as well

I should have the complete kit and be installing it on wednesday.

the kit will include
-simple diy instructions
-plenum spacer
-easy to install stud extensions
-custom rubber gasket for the top of the spacer (M5's already have an oem gasket for the bottom of the spacer).

i'm making one for my car and if all goes well i can make more for the board members :cheers:

arent the velocity stacks specifically matched to the air volumn of the stock plenum... meaning once you install the new plenum the greater air volumn could actually cause them to hurt performance? or am I completely making that up?

I say dyno with the aftermarket stacks and oem stacks with the plenum spacer ... but watch out as the ecu might need sometime to readjust...
