As no surprise, Senner started its job under the Z’s hood where it installed an INJEN cold-air-intake system with hydro-shield wind deflector and remapped the ECU to squeeze a few more ponies from the 3.7-liter V-6. There is also a new stainless steel exhaust system connected to a fan-type exhaust pipe and 400-cell sports catalysts. All these updates have increased the 3.7-liter engine’s output from the standard 330 horsepower to a total of 368 horsepower. Peak torque also jumped from 269 pound-feet to 299 pound-feet.
Senner didn’t hang up its wrenched after tuning the engine, as is also slapped on a set of 20-inch Work Varianza T1S wheels wrapped in Continental Sport Contact 5P tires sized 245/30R20 up front and 295/25R20 out back.
Rims and tires aren’t quite enough to push the 370Z to another level, so Senner also added in a compression and rebound-adjustable KW variation 3-Inox coilover kit, and adjustable control levers on the rear axle to allow for fine alignment tweaks on the back end.
