Frequently Asked Questions
What size is the exhaust?
The downpipes are 3" for maximum power and reliability.
What will be used for tuning?
UpRev and EcuTek can be used for tuning, depending on the owners preference. A
base startup tune will be supplied with all turbocharger systems and custom
tuning options will be available.
What size is the intercooler tubing?
To achieve lightning fast response and maximum power we utilize 2 x 2.5"
tubing from the turbochargers to the intercooler. This is the optimal size to
keep the system pressurized and limit the pressure drop, but big enough to
sustain high HORSEPOWER. The intercooler piping post intercooler (from the
intercooler to the engine/throttle body) is a single 3" light weight
aluminum which is fully polished for "show car" quality look.
Is the intercooler one or two cores?
The 350Z intercooler features one single core with twin inlets and a single
outlet for maximum power and reliability. The core design utilizes vertical
flow technology, which is proven to outperform standard horizontal flow
intercooler configuration - much like the design found on the Nissan GT-R. The
intercooler features CAD designed casted endtanks engineered for optimal flow
and efficiency while minimizing pressure drop and ensuring maximum long-term
Are the intercooler tubes welded together?
Some sections of the intercooler tubes are welded together. To ensure maximum
flow, all of the intercooler tube bends are done with a mandrel bending process
and we control the quality of the bends and limit the number of bends required,
maximizing power. Mandrel bending is a process in which the full diameter of
the pipe is retained when it is bent vs. standard bending techniques that
reduce the internal diameter of the pipe. In Mandrel bending there is a minimal
distance between bend radi. This distance dictates how close two bends can be
together without having to cut & weld the piping. This occasionally leads
to bends which are too close to other bends, therefore requiring welding and
ensuring the full diameter of the pipe is retained.
Explain the air filter placement
Keeping our focus on a true OEM style kit without relocating any OEM parts, we
strived to keep the washer reservoirs and other stock components in place. We
have placed the air filters as far from the engine as possible achieving a
perfect balance between keeping the vehicle as stock & easily serviceable as
we can while yielding maximum power and long term reliability by limiting
What are the exhaust manifolds made of?
Cast 304 stainless steel and CNC machined for flanged surfaces for a leak free,
powerful and reliable exhaust system.
What type of exhaust housing is used?
The BorgWarner EFR housing - stainless exhaust housing for maximum power and
reliability with internal wastegate positioning for optimal flow & response
Will the wastegate be recirculated back into the system?
Yes, since the BorgWarner EFR turbochargers feature an OEM style internal
wastegate it will internally (within the turbocharger itself) recirculate back
into the system for maximum power. Unlike other turbocharger systems on the
market which use an external wastegate, by using the proven BorgWarner OEM
style turbocharger setup you will eliminate boost creep issues. The integrated
internal wastegate also saves weight, improves reliability, decreases pesky
leaks associated with external wastegate setups, and decreases installation
trouble when trying to pipe the external wastegate back into the system.
Will this system come with an electronic boost controller?
No, this will be an optional upgrade, but the installer will have the ability
to initially configure the setup between 5-10psi on average using the
integrated wastegate actuators. The boost level will vary depending on which
exhaust system your car has. This helps reduce the need for a boost controller,
simplifying installation and reducing overall cost.
What if I want to run more boost pressure (PSI)?
The installer will have the ability to configure the wastegate actuators
between 5-10 PSI on average. The boost level your car will initially run
depends on what exhaust system you have. If you have a stock exhaust system you
will run between 5-7psi. If you have a very high flowing exhaust system (ie.
3" True Dual Exhaust) you will run 9-11psi. For those who are interested
in using an aftermarket boost controller or who may already own one, the BorgWarner
turbochargers do allow for the use of an electronic boost controller and
configuring the boost controller as you would on any turbocharged system. We
recommend a boost controller with both positive and negative boost offset
Alternatively, for best reliability on higher boost/horsepower application, AAM
Competition has an engine management system available that not only provides
precision boost control it also has many safety features such as over-boost
protection, knock protection, temperature protection, and more.
What size are the silicone couplers?
We only use high thermal protective reinforced 4-ply silicone for maximum
Will this system be compatible with aftermarket cat back systems?
We cannot speak for ALL of the aftermarket cat back systems available on the
market, but we can say since this turbocharger system features OEM style
fitment and is designed to mate with the OEM system it will be compatible with
the majority of all high quality cat back systems (including our own AAM
Competition 350Z 2.5" and 3" True Dual Systems, wink wink. Ok - sorry
for the sales plug here).
Which turbochargers are used in the system?
We utilize the new BorgWarner EFR (Engineered For Racing) turbochargers,
specifically the 7163's which are rated at 550 HORSEPOWER each. These proven
turbochargers utilize stronger OEM grade materials and have special design
considerations such as purpose deigned internal wastegate, integrated
recirculation (CRV) valve and a titanium aluminide (Gamma-TI ) turbine wheel.
This simplifies the overall installation and setup of the turbocharger system
which contributes to their superior performance and superior reliability of the
turbocharger system itself. These integrated features also help to justify the
higher cost of these turbochargers and provide our customers with an extremely
reliable, high power turbocharger system.
Can the stock crash bar be kept with the turbocharger system?
Absolutely! We have designed this kit as OEM "friendly" as possible.
The stock crash bar is fully retained and no modification is needed to this
critical safety-engineered component.
Will I be required to drill or tap the cylinder head or upper oil pan?
Absolutely not - this would be counterproductive to our OEM style fitment.
Other forced induction kits require this which can adversely affect the
reliability of your vehicle and create many installation headaches. This was
one of our major considerations when developing this kit and it required many
hours of CAD development from our engineering team to successfully accomplish.
Development hours well spent if you ask us.
Does the factory steering system remain intact?
It most certainly does, as well as the factory power steering system. Again -
major considerations we had when developing this kit to feature an OEM level of
fitment and retain maximum reliability in these areas.
Will I need to remove this turbocharger system for a clutch job?
Negative. You do NOT have to remove the turbocharger system for a clutch job.
Are you starting to see a trend here?
Will this system impact the "area under the curve"?
I'll let you guess... No! You are correct - since this is an OEM style fitment
focusing on drivability there will be no impact to the "area under the
curve". You will have the full power you are accustomed to right off the
line - no power loss whatsoever.
Do I have to move the location of my oil filter?
OEM style fitment and reliability = you do not have to move the oil filter.
Moving the oil filter can lead to problems. We designed the turbocharger
systems to retain the location and functionality of the OEM oil filter and its
Will this system work with oil cooler kits?
Generally speaking yes. If the oil cooler kit was mounted to the OEM oil filter
than it should have no problem fitting. Even if your oil cooler kit required a
relocation of the oil filter it still should be compatible - but we'd prefer
the retention of the OEM oil filter location and an upgrade to an oil cooler
that allows this. This turbocharger system also comes with our own oil pan
spacer increasing oil capacity by about a quart to help aid cooling.
What type of blow off valve comes with the system? The BorgWarner EFR turbochargers feature an integrated compressor recirculation valve (CRV) which is designed to run with these specific turbochargers and does not require any adjustments. The CRV vents boost quickly and efficiently when the throttle closes further raising the reliability of the turbochargers. It is also internally-recirculated to keep turbo speed high during the shift and to keep engine control systems satisfied yielding maximum power. The BorgWarner EFR integrated CRV valve is far superior to the traditional BOV offering improved response, maximum power and exceptional reliability.
In general what kind of materials are used in the system?
High quality cast stainless or high quality 16-gauge 304 stainless for any and
all exhaust side related components. Lightweight aircraft quality 16-gauge 6061
aluminum for all intake related components and tubing, high-temp reinforced
4-ply silicone, motorsport grade hoses for coolant, etc. We use only the best
materials available to provide our customers with the most powerful and
reliable twin turbocharger system available.
Does this system come with an oil pan?
The system comes with an engineered billet aluminum oil pan spacer. Standard
provisions are included in the oil pan spacer should you want to run an
external oil temperature gauge.
About how long can you estimate the kit to be installed?
Our technicians take between 8-12 hours to install the turbocharger system
after the engine is out of the vehicle.
Have you experienced any AIT (air intake temperature) issues?
None whatsoever. This was also a significant consideration during our
development process to ensure a reliable kit eliminating any intake temperate
issues. All piping was kept to an absolute minimum with minimum bends to
elevate bottlenecks and provide maximum efficiency and air flow.
What is the horsepower potential for this kit?
This would depend on your engine and level of build. But the turbochargers are
rated for up to 550 HORSEPOWER each, so it would be safe to assume 1,000+
HORESPOWER on a fully built motor and setup.
Other than purchasing the turbocharger system, what else do I need to buy for a proper installation? Nothing. The kit comes with EVERYTHING you need aside from fluids, upgraded fuel components (fuel pump, injectors, etc.), and engine management. Between what's included and the integrated features of the BorgWarner EFR turbochargers your installation shop should be pleasantly surprised at the ease of installation due to the OEM style fitment and having everything included (tools aside). You will want to do a fresh fluid change (new oil and antifreeze).
Is there a layaway program? Yes, Advanced Automotive Manufacturing & Competition will offer a layaway program for those of you who would like to take advantage of it. We will require 25% down and it must be paid off in full within 6 months with minimum monthly payments.
