The Decision: Nissan GT-R vs 370Z

Nearly a year ago we decided it was time to replace our shop car, a Nissan 350Z with a turbocharged DE motor.  This car was used mainly for research and development of our Single Turbo Kit for the VQ35DE motor, as we spent a fair amount of time at the track and street with over 40,000 test miles on our setup.


We knew we wanted to stick with our Nissan/Infiniti niche, and we wanted a car that could perform well at the track and on the street.

With the 370Z and G37 being virtually the same car, our need was for performance not daily drive-ability, we picked the 370Z. However, while doing our research we noticed how much used GT-Rs had dropped in price, down to 50K-60K for a higher mileage 2009-2010.  Unfortunately for us, these years are known to be plagued with possible transmission issues and getting a newer car pushed us out of our budget.

This created a choice GT-R VS 370Z and a lot of factors to consider, here are a few for a stock comparison.

The Quest For The Highest HP 370Z On Pump Gas!

Back in October of 2015, we purchased a 2014 nissan 370Z with around 10,000 miles on the odometer, not long after we purchased the vehicle we started the modification process.  We contacted tony at fast intentions and ordered their true dual catback exhaust system and resonated test pipes along with a set of K&N drop in filters.  With the newest modifications, we needed a software that would allow us to gain the maximum horsepower out of our newest addition, so we became an ecutek dealer.
