    whats up I just picked up a nissan 350z and was wondering what you guys thought about the greddy twin turbo kit for it. I always used custom built kits and I heard the greaddy piggy back system sucks. let me know what you think before I blow 4500 dollars

    A local shop actually has a 350zTT and it looks hella nice. I'm pretty sure they're using the GReddy kit. I think AEM has their EMS available for the 350z, so you may be able to upgrade to that and avoid using the GReddy piggy back system.

    greddy's FM does suck.
    their kit is tiny.

    you can build better for less money.

    Ever play the game Diablo? Like, the original one? Where you go into the tomb and spend a long time figuring out how to break the seals and kill the evil wizard hiding inside, but after you do all the work and break the seals you realize that you've opened an interdementional gateway to hell itself and Diablo is coming to eat your flesh and raze the entire surface of the earth? That pretty much sums up what you've just done.

    For inline 4's with no torque? Pretty much.

    Greddy's TT hp on the 350Z is pathetic, even by Greddy standards.

    My point is anyone who buys a greddy setup :
    1.) Did no research on their car, and what they wanted out of the setup
    2.) Didn't have the "time" to specifically pick what they wanted/needed
    3.) Will expect minimal gains.

    There is a huge difference in TT, and Greddy TT.
