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.
