The car is not even out yet and you people are already talking modifications. Why?
Just because the car is going to be good. Doesn’t mean you can’t add your own touch to it. I for one will be modding day 1. This Isn't a collector car to me. I will mod until I’m happy with the appearance. Don’t get me wrong. I’m not modding b/c I don’t like the looks. I’m modding to make it my own.

From what I have seen so far, it’s a beautiful car, I for one will absolutely make NO modifications at all. Just as long as I get the color I want.
This is full case of each to their own buddy. Support the community. Lol

GTR chief engineer has an R32 modded to 600hp and has been in an alpha gtr. He supports modification.

Cars like this just beg for mods... although I do think I'd leave it stock for two years or so and really see what the aftermarket has planned.

In many cases it's less about power and more about customization and making it unique to me.

Tbh modifications should not be seen a negative or a dab at Nissan. Its just personal touch. The only car id say doesnt need more than vented hood or vender is the Nismo z34. Aside from that I wouldn't mod it. Each to their own.

On the new Z id add a spoiler side skirts diffuser and front lip. I might change the grill to a more aggressive angular grill rendering the Nismo moot especially if mapped.

Id add the Red line using wrap around those parts to make it look more Nismo like the pic

. Lowering it will give it a good stance. Doesn't require excess. Only thing is it lacks flared arches but its just as wide. Widebody kit isnt really my thing

Wouldn't you need a tune to add any reliability with BOV's? I thought that dumping metered air caused a car to run rich on decel
Good point. Oddly, I haven't seen people on the Infiniti forums recommend a tune with BOVs. As there is a no stock BOV or re-circulation system, most of the boost is just going back to the turbine wheels, and the throttle (according to the forums) apparently remains partially open for what I can only assume would be to lessen the shock to the turbines. So I'm thinking just dumping the boost via BOVs may not matter that much on the stock tune as the stock tune is acting as if it the car has a BOV or re-circulation system. The worst that would happen is that you run a little rich on decel, but I don't think it would be enough for the hot side of the turbo or the downpipes to care.
