For all gear-heads alike the initials B.R.E. represent something almost god like in motorsports. Countless images of 510′s and Z’s with iconic stripes on the side of them fill my head with all of racing’s glory. Granted, fourty years ago I wasn’t alive to enjoy all Brock Racing Enterprises victories, but one can live vicariously through the internet can’t he?
In 2010 to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the BRE 240 Z victory at Road Atlanta, Peter Brock built a 370z with the help of STILLEN as a tribute piece aimed at capturing the soul of the BRE car with a modern twist.
While building the car, they turned to STILLEN to make sure the car ran as good as it looked on the track and among other products we made sure to install the STILLEN 370Z Oil Cooler Kit to make sure oil temperatures were under control at the track. STILLEN 370Z SWAY BARS to take car of the handling, STILLEN 370Z CAT BACK EXHAUST to give a little more grunt but still stay within class regulations.
It turns out the BRE 370z tribute car decided to pay us a visit this week. I love the autographed dash on this thing!!!
For more info on this car and the BRE 240Z check out the Road and Track article.

Last week, we told you about the IMPORT TUNER Power Pages article that featured our Supercharged 370z with just 3 magical parts on it.
STILLEN 370Z INTERCOOLED SUPERCHARGER KIT
STILLEN 370Z DUAL EXHAUST SYSTEM
STILLEN UP REV ENGINE TUNE
As you can see from the previous article, those three parts alone gave the 370z a 139HP boost at the wheels and 90lb/ft of torque. While we would LOVE to equip our customers cars with superchargers all day, the $8,000+ price tag might be a little too much for every budget. So today, we figured it would be fitting to cover a more cost effective approach to the “magic number.”
For their customer (Richard Park) EFI LOGICS combined the
370Z GEN 3 STILLEN LONG TUBE INTAKE $499
370Z STILLEN CAT BACK DUAL EXHAUST SYTEM $1269.61
370Z UP REV OSIRIS ECU TUNE $499 (plus dyno time)
For some pretty amazing horsepower and torque gains.
As you can see, it turns out 3 is in fact the magic number on the 370z for gains good for +40HP at the wheels and +30 lb/ft of torque. All for a price that’s roughly around $2500.
If you are interested in taking your 370z to the next level, give us or EFI LOGICS a call and both of us will gladly help point you in the right direction.

There are a handful of cars in this world that will make any enthusiast stop what they are doing and admire the “collection of parts” in front of them. Those cars will always hold a special place in just about any enthusiasts heart. While there aren’t many nameplates that can make just about any enthusiast stop in their tracks, anything with COSWORTH in it’s name will always fall into that category. Today, SPEEDHUNTERS.com featured a very special Ford Focus RS Cosworth that spared no expense with the level of quality and detail that went in to the car.
The factory brakes were ditched and replaced with AP Racing Six Piston Front Brakes with Reyland Floating Alloy Bells.
The quality and beauty of this car is hard to ignore and so are those 6 piston AP RACING brakes and 365mm discs.

Hooraaaaaaaay we made the cover of IMPORT TUNER!!! Well sort of, we actually made the cover of IMPORTTUNER.COM. Today, or 4/26/12, (depending on when you read this) Import Tuner put our 370z Power Pages feature on the homepage of their website.
As we have stated before in earlier blog entries, the NISSAN 370Z is a very good car straight out of the box, and it takes quite a bit of patience and finess to squeeze extra ponies out of the VQ37. That being said, adding the wrong Intakes or exhausts can actually rob that car of some horsepower, so to answer the troves of people on the forums asking us how much power our 370z products make… check out the Power Pages Article here..
SPOILER ALERT!!!! With some mild tuning we managed to squeeze and extra 139 HP out of the venerable 370z with just 3 PARTS!!!! … That’s just like throwing an extra honda civic in the engine bay of your 370z but without any of the weight.
I guess 3 really is the magic number after all

Lately, we have been getting a ton of 370z questions regarding when we officially recommend tuning your 370Z after adding a few bolt on’s. The 370z is a very potent car straight out of the box but as soon as you start adding one too many bolt on’s you can change the car’s optimal air/fuel ratio to actually start to hinder your motor. Instead of boring you with a horribly written “Guide to modding your 370z,” I’ll refer you to the IMPORT TUNER power pages article where they managed to massage an extra 40HP out of the VQ37VHR powerplant.
Maybe that will help clear up the “what part adds what and when you should tune” debate. As they say in the article… THE DYNO DOESN’T LIE!
For more information on the products that can be found in this article…
Plus we have plenty of other 370Z power adding goodies available if you want to step things up a little further than 40hp.
