2004 Nissan Nismo 350Z S-Tune


(from Nissan Press Release)  The Nissan 350Z is Nissan’s performance and style flagship. A full array of NISMO S-tune components, backed by Nissan’s Limited Parts and Accessories Warranty (see actual warranty and dealer for details), takes these attributes one step further.

“The NISMO S-tune 350Z is the ultimate Z street car,” said Kenneth Zapp, senior manager, Specialty Vehicle Group, Nissan Marketing. “It enhances the already incredible performance of the 350Z while remaining civil and reliable in daily driving.”

Performance of the Silverstone 350Z Touring has been enhanced in both the acceleration and handling arenas. For engine performance, a NISMO stainless steel cat-back exhaust system adds approximately six horsepower to the wheels with a nine-pound weight savings. This mandrel bent unit provides a high-pitch throaty sound that is unmistakably NISMO.

Next, the S-tune Z was treated to an S-tune 36mm front sway bar and 22mm rear sway bar for increased roll stiffness and less body lean. The NISMO S-tune shock and spring kit lowers the Z by 20mm to give it a tough stance, but also provides improved steering response, reduces body lean, pitch and dive and gives the Z more neutral handling. Silver 18x8.5-inch (front) and 18x9.5-inch (rear) 5-spoke NISMO wheels reduce unsprung weight and provide a racy look.

Inside, the 350Z’s already impressive ergonomics have been enhanced with a NISMO shift knob and floor mats. Drawing attention to the Z is a NISMO graphics kit and an appropriate finishing touch – the NISMO license plate frame.
