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

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


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

I think he's calling him cretinous; between the lines of course.

The reason you don't see the correct times in Vegas is because LV Motor speedway sucks. I too live in Vegas but I'm originally from California. Compared to the tracks in California the Vegas track is horrible. The prep on the track is the worst. Not to mention, Vegas is at a higher elevation than places that most magazines test cars. So yeah, in Vegas a 370z may run closer to high 13's but at sea level where cars are usually tested, it will run low 13's all day long. At a good track at sea level the 370z is good for 13.2-13.3 on average with some people even hitting 13.1.

So just because you don't see it happen in Vegas doesn't mean that it doesn't happen in other places. My old 06 LS2 Vette would only run 13.5 (on stock run flats), does that mean that LS2 Vettes only run mid 13's? Hell no, everyone knows they are good for 12.7-12.9 in stock form. My Camaro SS should run 12.9-13.1 but does it run that here in Vegas? Nope, much slower.

As for the OP's question, your V6 Camaro will have to be made as fast as the V8 Camaro in order to run with a 370z. Personally, rather than putting all that money into the V6 it would just be cheaper and easier to trade your car in for a V8. Bolt on's on the SS will leave the 370z in the dust.

Yep that explains it, LVMS sucks, someone call and have them close the track down. 370Z

Every tested time I've seen for the 370z has been right around 13.4. So if they're running mid 13's at LVMS that would be about par for the course.
