    the sti stock block can withstand around 400whp-450whp (i've seen some hit 500+whp on stock block) but it really depends on how hard you drive. no one can tell you how long your engine will last with any mods. the FP Green = Force Performance Green Turbo. find out more here

    Also figure in larger injectors, fuel pump, and a tune.

    Installed cobb catted downpipe had a protune done and k&n drop in filter on my 06 sti. I drive almost 80 miles round trip a day, and average 23-25 mpg(mostly highway). I can and have smoked z's all day long. raced a new g35 when I was stock and beat him up to almost 140. my setup makes 300whp and 340wtq and is great! cost just over a grand for all the work and is well worth it. just ran the qm in 12.8 at 106.2

    Might want to go to the STi forum and look at the upgrade path stickey. Pretty much answers all of these same questions.

    FYI....+100 mph rolling start, an STi will still take a treefiddyz. Been there, done that. An STi will even hold it's own, but slowly fade, against a modern GTO from +60mph rolling starts.

    On a track...fugetabout it. STi dominates (driver dependant of course).

    don't forget the post is about an 07 350z. they dyno in the260-270 range. I doubt that a stock vs stock the STI would take it on a roll. However, the dig is a different story. I have been there done it too. I ran bone stock with a slipping clutch 13,4 at 105mph.

    I ran a new z last year from about 40 gettin on the highway it was no contest in my favor. also ran a new g35 from about 60 and was slightly faster to about 120

    Well, i ran an 06 STI last year too, and on a roll i did not have problems. I dont know what you are referring by saying a newer 350z, but the 2006 350z is a 0.5 + second slower than the 2007+ 350z. The 2007 G35 has the same motor as the 2007+ 350z, and the Z walks the G pretty bad. In fact, a friend of mine has a G37S, i am able to pull him pretty good, on a dig. On a roll he's close to me, but i still have the edge. Hands down, STI is a perfect launching machine.

    the 2007 350z does 0-60 in 5.2 and the qm in 13.7 according to caranddriver. 06 sti 0-60 4.5 qm in 13 flat caranddriver. they both trap around the same speed. 07 g35 0-60 in 5.2 qm in 13.7-9. you do the math.

    well,according to Edmonds 2007 G35 is 5.6 0-60. and the STI is 0-60 in 4.9 and runs a 1/4 13.3 at 103. I do not bench races, but since you gave me an example that can be refuted easily I had to tell you that different sources different outcomes. Realistically 350z will be ahead on a highway roll, and yes it does not stand a chance on a dig.

    if you say so. I was mistaken it was motortrend. z still runs a slower time. I dont bench race either thats why I smoked that z on the highway. you should make sure the other guy knows you are racing next time. best of luck
