Forged Engine

Recommended Posts

Hi, after some advice, I am currently looking at a Z that has had a forged engine and wondered how much power it is good for, if anyone knows a ballpark figure. 

 

Forged engine by Z1 Motor Sport consisting of ....

Wiseco pistons piston ring set.

eagle rods with cap with optional super A Carillo rods.

Nissan OEM gasket kits ( cosmetic head gaskets).

ACL Engine bearings ( rod main thrust ).

ARP Head and main stud kits.

Z1 Viton Valve Seals.

Z1 Plenum spacer.

Organic fast road clutch.

 

 

Thanks

Alex

500 - 700 bhp depending on how good the forge build is.

 

However all that is futile if the tune is not good.

Steer clear away, the invoice he has for the work done on the engine is fake.

My pleasure. I've confirmed with Z1 several times, 100% forged invoice.

Well the Z1 Plenum spacer is kinda useless if you go turbo/supercharger. 

Errr no it’s not.

Can you explain why it would be beneficial for an FI? The reason you would put that on an NA car is to improve the volumetric efficiency or so it claims. With a good modern turbo that starts generating boost at around 2500rpm the improvements to your volumetric efficiency with the spacer would be so small if at all that i would personally save the money for a good drink. But thats just me. 

Edit: 

So i did a whole lot more theorycrafting and talking about plenum spacers and FI and we came to the following conclusion. 
If you can increase the CFM of the plenum with a plenum spacer and will not hit an obstruction like the heads/cams than you might see an increase in power output this is for both NA and FI. 
I will stand by my earlier argument that you won't see better performance on an FI car with a spacer. But that is based on that i can't find any dyno run on an FI car with and without plenum spacer and i yet have to find all the CFM numbers on the plenum with or without spacer.
