Here we go again, bagging car model within the same car company, Nissan make great affordable sports cars and I would hope we all share the love and admiration of Nissan sports cars of all model and era.
I have had a S14 and S15 in the past 14 years, I had a Nispro custom 3" front pipe, Fujitsubo Power Getter CBE and boost resticter removed, Whiteline adjustable swaybars, DBA 4000 slotted rotors & Ferodo DS2500 pad etc.... The boost gauge showed just over 1 bar at full throttle, and my stock 370z(not for long) would leave my lightly modified S15 for dead on a straight line and around the bends.
I know the stock 370z may not be as quick as a highly modified 200sx, but it insn't all about straight line performance in my book. The stock 370z is such a well package car from the factory, it has adequate power, excellent handling, powerfull brakes and surprisingly compliant ride, and I still love the S14 and S15 for their good attributes...
Check out the zclub forum, there are many modified 370z in Australia, and one with twin turbo in Melbourne which is being reviewed and will be published in the next month or two by one of the highly regard motoring magazine in Australia.
