NonStopTuning Infiniti G35 (Nissan 350Z) Pulley Kit Dyno Testing

NST G35

At the time of its debut, the Infiniti G35’s refined styling and sporty performance made a loud statement.  Among other items, the G35 shared its VQ35DE engine with the 350Z, and was a legitimate performer on the street and track.  We recently had the opportunity to test the NonStopTuning Underdrive Pulley Kit on one of these cars and were pretty impressed by the results.  Jessica’s G35 came to us as a completely stock car and provided us with a perfect blank canvas for testing.

All before and after dynos were performed on the Carboy Racing Dynojet in Houston, Texas. Before and after dynos were performed on the same day, with pulley install in between, with NO other modifications of any kind. Dyno graphs and max values are listed, temps and humidity are also listed. All photos were taken during this testing session.

Using a car with NO other performance modifications gives us a blank canvas and makes it abundantly clear that the gains we see are associated with the NST Pulley Kit.  Our test car did better in terms of horsepower, torque, and response, as indicated by the upward shift in both the HP and TQ curves.   Better horsepower and torque delivery is clearly visible in the low, mid, and high range of the power band.

The Shift UP in Both HP & TQ is Awesome!

Max Gain of 5HP, Higher Gains in Mid Range

Max horsepower went from 227 to 232, with a very nice shift in the mid range, posting consistent 10+ horsepower gains in the middle of the powerband.  Max torque was more impressive with an increase from 220 to 232, delivering these gains pretty consistently across the entire power band.

Conclusion?  NST Pulleys improve power, torque, and response across the entire power band. If you look at the area under the power and torque curves you will notice positive gains in the low, mid, and high range when the NST Pulley Kit is used. No other modification in the same price range can offer similar gains across the entire power band. This fact makes the NST Pulley Kit one of the best bang per buck performance modifications for the Infiniti G35 and Nissan 350Z.

NonStopTuning Hyundai Veloster Turbo Lightweight Crank Pulley Dyno Testing

NST Veloster Turbo Dyno Testing

We had an opportunity to dyno test a NonStopTuning CR-Lite Crank Pulley with a naturally aspirated Hyundai Veloster NAV a couple weeks ago, and were very happy with the results.  Click here for that post.

After the positive testing with the NAV, we were excited to test with a Veloster Turbo and had the chance to do so with Jay’s white Veloster.  Much like the last Veloster we tested with, this one came to us as a bone-stock, un-modified, car… it even happened to be another white car, nicknamed 002!

NonStopTuning Hyundai Veloster Turbo Crank Pulley

NonStopTuning Hyundai Veloster Turbo Crank Pulley

The NST Lite series is a designation used for pulleys that are light-weight versions of their OEM counterparts. All NST pulleys are built using High quality 6061-T6 aircraft aluminum and are easily 65% to 70% lighter than steel or cast iron OEM pulleys. Every NST pulley is hard anodized for exceptional durability and is a great item for use at the track or on the street.

OEM Veloster Crank Pulley – 48 oz
NST CR-Lite Crank Pulley – 14 oz

The NST CR-Lite Pulley is compatible with naturally aspirated, turbocharged, or supercharged applications, and is compatible with the OEM belt. No belt change is required when this crank pulley is used.

Our test car did better in terms of horsepower, torque, and response.  The Turbo car seems to spool faster with the weight reduction provided by the NST CR-Lite Crank Pulley and benefits from better horsepower and torque at the low, mid, and high range of the power band.

All before and after dynos were performed in fourth gear, using the same dyno on the same day, and NO other performance modifications were made.

Max horsepower went from 168 to 171, with a very nice bump in high end power, posting consistent gains of 7 to 10 horsepower after 5,000 rpm.  Max torque was more impressive with an increase from 180 to 189, with consistent gains across the entire power band.

Conclusion?  NST Pulleys improve power, torque, and response across the entire power band. If you look at the area under the power and torque curves you will notice positive gains in the low, mid, and high range when the NST Crank Pulley is used. No other modification in the same price range can offer similar gains across the entire power band.

NSTvelosterDYNO001

NonStopTuning recently had the opportunity to develop and dyno test a lightweight crank pulley for the Hyundai Veloster.  Our friend Alex’s peppy 1.6 liter NAV came to us as an unmolested car.  No performance mods of any kind meant that this NAV would be a perfect blank canvas for before and after comparisons.

No performance modifications other than the NST CR-Lite Crank Pulley, same dyno, same day.

The NST Lite series is a designation used for pulleys that are light-weight versions of their OEMcounterparts. All NST pulleys are built using High quality 6061-T6 aircraft aluminum and are easily 65% to 70% lighter than steel or cast iron OEM pulleys. Every NST pulley is hard anodized for exceptional durability and is a great item for use at the track or on the street.

NonStopTuning Scion FRS | Subaru BRZ Pulley Dyno Testing

NST Scion FRS Subaru BRZ Pulley Kit

NST Scion FRS Subaru BRZ Pulley Kit

It’s no secret that NonStopTuning has offered popular lightweight pulley options for the 86 chassis.  Over the past decade NST has offered more options for the Toyota family of engines found in the AE86, including the 16V/20V variations of the 4AGE and 4AGZE, than all other companies combined.

Carrying that tradition forward, NST now offers a lightweight kit for the second coming of the 86 chassis and the FA20 powered Scion FRS, Subaru BRZ, and Toyota GT86.

The NST Lite series is a designation used for pulleys that are light-weight versions of their OEM counterparts. All NST pulleys are built using High quality 6061-T6 aircraft aluminum and are easily 65% to 70% lighter than steel or cast iron OEM pulleys. Every NST pulley is hard anodized for exceptional durability and is a great item for use at the track or on the street.

The NST CR-Lite Pulley is compatible with naturally aspirated, turbocharged, or supercharged applications, and is compatible with the OEM belt. No belt change is required when this crank pulley is used.

We had the opportunity to test a set of NST pulleys on a stock BRZ this week.  Scott’s world rally blue pearl BRZ came to us as an otherwise unmolested test car.  No previously installed performance mods of any kind would ensure that we would get the best raw data possible.  The NST Pulley Kit is the only power adder that was added to this car during the session, and all dyno runs were performed on the same dyno, on the same day, at Carboy Racing in southwest Houston.

Josh McGuire’s LS7 Powered NST S14

Josh McGuire and the NonStopTuning Sparky’s Speed Shop Nissan S14 wrapped up a very successful season on August 16/17, winning the 2014 Lone Star Drift championship.  The 2014 series title comes as the third ProAM championship in the last four seasons for NonStopTuning, with Chelsea DeNofa and Will Parsons winning as NST drivers in 2011 and 2012, respectively.

McGuire and his team were very well prepared all season and finished on the podium at every event, minus the final event (Round Six)  where the car suffered mechanical failure and McGuire was unable to qualify.
