Personally I don't care, but I can see where they're coming from.
So is having longtube headers (even high flow cats won't pass in a lot of places), launching your car, flooring it at all (exhibition acceleration), green halos, lowering springs in some places, etc etc. The track is too far and too costly so no thanks.

The Camaro 6 has some serious potential for tuning, while the 370Z is almost completely tapped out tune wise for an engine. The Z motor is nearing the end of it's era, as they have to now turbo charge to get over that 420-430 HP bump after seriously modifying the engine. I know a lot of people who have tried, and blew the block because too much pressure and heat. The BMW motor has the same issue on the straight 6, only so much can be brought out before it becomes a time-bomb. Right about the same horsepower range as the Z also. Hell, they both have trouble running without being tuned :P

RX Performance has ported heads and MACE Engineering makes camshafts for the v6. I've purchased the cams....just waiting

Ok, what does that have to do with headers.

Well I did 13.6 in what basically amounts to the 4 door version of the 370z that weighs 400 lbs more and has a good 30 less hp and 2 less gears. bench racing ftw

I thought 370z was a 7 speed not an 8? (Going off the 6MT in your name)

As everyone should know by now. G35 will always be here to inform us that imports smoke camaro's.

His G35 is faster than my ZL1. It's depressing.

dont know what year your v6 is but if it has the LFX engine you cant get headers.

And considering the number 1 person on the v6 fast list for bolt ons comes in at 13.4 with DRs/Skinnies, Injen CAI, ARH Longtubes/High Flow Cats, SS Axle Back, Trifecta Tune. Outside of Force induction I'm going to have to hand it to the nissan

The 370z has a lot of heat issues. Large aftermarket oil coolers are a must. In addition, there are certainly 370z's with more horsepower than any v6 camaro on this forum. However, the big problem is the torque. Even with twin turbos, I haven't seen any information on a z with more than 500 ft*lbs of torque. In addition, as you mentioned, tuning is a big problem. There are many more camaros than 370z's out there. There is less of an incentive to getting everything exactly right. Apparently, tuners can't get the VVEL tuning down,thus leaving power and durability on the table.

However, that being said, the z has a huge weight advantage. Basically, the camaro needs to be very highly modified (FI) to keep up with a bolt-on z without FI.

Well you must have a speical car cuz here they are mid 14 sec. at best stock. The 350z and 370z are not that fast here, must be the heat and bad Vegas air.

There is a v6 twin turbo on this forum that made just over 600rwtq running 11s. Look at the FI dyno list and read his build Gretchen
