Does anyone know how much horse power could one generate from the Z's NA engine with out going the turbo or super charger route?

keeping gasoline as the fuel? No tricks? "street legal"

I'd guess and say about 350bhp (~320whp) with full head work should be achievable.

But then again, I believe the OEM injectors are maxed out approx. 300whp. I am not sure however.

Most I have ever seen was right at 300 and that includes heads, cams, etc.

Around 350 RWHP.

It's possible, it just hasn't been done yet.

The VQ35DE in the 350Z is pretty much maxed out (safely/reliability) in N/A form from Nissan.

Everyone thanks for the information. I was just wondering. I am taking my Z the slow route due to money. I added rims/tires and carbon fiber. I am going to upgrade my LSD next.

From everything I've read, this is correct. Changing out the fuel system to one that supports more HP still makes it NA, so just get the 200 lpm fuel pump, new fuel rails and 550 cc injectors and that should hold you :cheers:
