Get a catback that offers the type and volume of sound you want, and get some z1 smooth post maf tubes and k&n drop in filters. This will give you another 15-20who over stock for about $1500. Anything beyond this offers diminishing returns. If you want more that 295-315 whp, you need fi, or to sell your z and buy a Corvette.

It would take a forced induction setup to hit those numbers

Forced induction means a turbo or supercharger kit. Stillen's supercharger kit or GTM's twin turbo or supercharger kit are all fairly popular choices.

And you're gonna want a new clutch and oil cooler to support those. Also upgraded fuel system(fuel pump/injectors), but i think that comes with the kits(don't remember 100%) and it would need to be dyno tuned with a reflash.

STS single turbo will get you there 450-502whp or you can go with the greddy twins which will get you up to 512whp ( these numbers are all on pump gas). It's all about what you like whether it's a turbo or a Super Charger. Look around on the forum and ask away. There is a lot of people on here that will be willing to help out.

In regards to horsepower, it seems like theres some sort of "true" horsepower and on-paper horsepower. On paper, my 370z (like many others) are based around 332hp @ 6200 (give or take). However, looking at stillen's site, it seems like the 370z only outputs 276hp @7200 (max rev?). Could someone explain this?

The hp is never at the wheels. It's always at the flywheel. So you are going to lose about 20% hp .. I always take about 20% off from what the factory says it is.
