congrats on tyour purchase...

LMAO on some of these posts...

look, it simple - find out who tuned it, ask the tuner how the car is spec'ed and how to approach a long distance trip.

on the highway you are mostly driving in vacuum, and the engine is not trying too hard. you just need to be light on the pedal till you get home, schedule a local tuner appointment and tune the car locally wherever you end up.

370z will never be tuned below premium, so thats just nonsense.

if the car comes with an afr gauge (which it should being boosted), just monitor it and make sure you are as close to 14.7 as possible..

you wont kill the car running it cross country (driving it like a normal human) but you can fk it royally driving like you stole it all the way there.

after working at several dealerships for 15 plus years, I can tell you right now that at least several people put that car through hell and back. On top of that they will only use the cheapest gas to fill it up. When I worked for BMW we strictly used 87 on every car whether it be a customers car or the shuttle.

edit: **** this thread was necro'd. Well I'll keep this here in hopes someone else finds it useful.
