Well, let's see it. With all the talk about how one side is better than the other (based on personal preference), we should just do some data collection.

If you want to participate, do so with all honesty. For those that like NA and want to stay that way, vote NA. Same goes for FI, but you must have a FI car to vote that way.

Lacking any clear definition of what "better" means, I voted FI. Power gains are meager compared to $ involved when trying get more power out of this engine.

Enthusiasts have their opinions on what kind of performance they want. Better is purely subjective in this case.

The poll is meant to collect numbers on how many enthusiasts prefer their style or type of performance. In other words, I wanted to know how many people have FI Z's and how many prefer to stay NA.

It's not a poll meant to gather information about 'wishing' to be FI or second-guessing oneself after going FI.

You know that this is going to end in a turbo vs. supercharger pissing contest, don't you?

My vote is fourced induction, but I do not have fi on my Z... does having a turbo car other than the Z count?
until then I will hold my vote, as not to skew ( ) your poll

Yeah, I know. But that could be another poll. At least those options are both FI.

I knew that would happen, but that's okay. No worries, brother.

I am into drag racing with the Z currently, but I would vote na for autocross.

i didn't vote, but i'm currently NA. I've just heard too many bad stories w/ FI and the VQ. but that still wouldn't stop me if i had the ten grand to blow.

That's part of the reason I'm leaning to the NA side and researching heavy mods for that.

And what do you expect to gain out of N/A mods?
a few HP and a ton of money, seriously if I bought a new Z it would stay stock unless I went FI, bolt ons yield no really marked increase in HP, sometimes bolt ons will make you loose HP.

N/A Z ---suspension upgrades maybe exhaust for sound.
