There are a drawbacks with the test pipes but should make a smidge more power than the hfc
very True NY really only cares about the check engine light and that all of the readiness codes are set (your allowed (1) not ready) they don't really bother with pulling the wheels off and putting on the lift (unless you get a shop looking to soak you for money)

I think I've read that people can get over 400 at the crank, but no one has broken the 400 whp threshold. Cost = hella much.

Hey guys so I have been reading a few dated threads from 2011 about how much power the stock internals the Z can handle. Some people rekon around 450-500 rwhp. So now that it has been a few years since then, are people seeing many zeds with this sort of power on stock internals without issues over these years. Blown motors or anything for a daily 450-500 rwhp Z?

Tinted windows, lowering springs, tire graphics, and now deciding on exhaust? I think I will go with motordyne CBE but I want FI test pipes. Does anybody know if the bolt up together? Then stillen CAI

RJM Performance Adjustable Friction Point Clutch Pedal Assembly

This should be everyone's first mod if you want to love your Z more. The dealership employee told me I would get used to the clutch..... I didn't after 1,000 miles. Ryan at RJM fixed that for me. In fact, now that I am going FI, I ordered RJM's new HD Master cylinder and the newest revision of his pedal because I love that company so much.

Ive owned my 2016 Base 6 SP for 1 year now.

1st - WeatherTech floor mats
2and - FI Start button
3rd - Nismo Carbon Gear shift knob
4th - Stillen CIA - immediate and noticeable performance gain.
5th - FI CatBack - just installed yesterday. A little louder than I expected (with 18" resonators). I have not had a chance to drive it much, maybe 10 miles and so far its all been under 50MpH so can't say too much about it, however I do feel there is some extra power there, not sure 'how much.' It does sound cool, louder than expected, but cool.

Next upgrade will either be the pulley or HFC. Not sure which will come first. Pulley sounds easy and inexpensive for a extra 5 HP.

After that its a toss up between coilovers or stereo. Since my home stereo is a $20,000 setup, I don't value car audio all that much.

Oh my god that is sexy. How would you rate the difficulty of installing air on the 370z on a 0-10 scale? Just this month I've helped two friends bag-over-coils on their Mazdaspeed 6's and it's a pain the *** with some welding required.
