Newbie getting 2003 350z

Hey fellas. So I'm trading my 2010 cobalt ss/tc for a 2003 burnt orange 350z enthusiast.
Can you guys tell me what HP/TQ comes with this car. I also will be getting the bolt on's, exhaust, headers, test pipes, cai. Will I need to have it tuned with these parts or is it OK to run without tune? What kind of tune do you guys suggest? What HP/TQ will I get out of this?

The Cobalt ss is notorious for popping cels when modified how is the 350z handle all the mods?
Any info is helpful thanks!

Welcome and the 350Z is quite different from your Cobalt SS. Hate to break it to you, but a simple CAI and exhaust won't help much on your VQ35DE. Nissan did a particularly good job on the intake. If you're willing to tune it with headers, test pipes and 100 octane race fuel, UpRev might find you 10-15 HP over stock (240-250 HP) numbers. And that's about it for a NA VQ35DE.

BTW- your Z is painted in "LeMans Sunset" and may have "burnt orange" leather seats.
