I’ve always loved the Z ever since I used to get rides in a blue and silver '84 280ZX back in the day with my friend and his mom. I absolutely fell in love with the last 300ZX, fell in love again when the new 350Z came out in 2002. And lastly, the truly sexy lines of the 370Z with nearly identical roof line to the GTR. I couldn’t take it any longer and decided to purchase a 370Z of my own, and am so glad that I did.
I’m already at 400 hp, and can only manage about another 30+ with long tube headers and exhaust cams. After that, I would have to go forced induction to make “real” power, good for around 700 hp on the stock internals. Anything after that, I’d have to go with a built bottom end, and might as well stroke it out from 3.7L to 4.2L.
For probably less money, I could throw in a slightly messaged LS motor, gap the piston rings and slap on a ProCharger and make the same or more power with a LOT more torque.
It’s a thought.
