I may be confusing myself here, but I thought the stock tune had the Z at about ~360 rwhp?
Their baseline was quite a bit lower than that?

Easy to miss in the Insta post comment, but this graph is of a Infiniti Q with the 300hp variant of the VR30, hence the huge gains with stock parts.

From the recent dyno graphs of the Z, sounds like this equates to +30-40hp / +90-100ftlb, which is still pretty impressive 😯

Ah, that makes more sense.

It's the 300 VR30 that is severely underrated. You can boost up a 300 VR30 to within a red hair of the RS VR30 pretty easily.....

I've actually considered getting one if the "price was right" since I have a brand new set of Akebonos just laying around.......

Probably much cheaper than buying a “real” Red Sport. Even though lesser trims are essentially just detuned from the factory, having a stock car that can generate these gains from just a tune is incredible.

Especially when compared to the previous VQ37 which would cost over 10 grand to see these kinds of gains.
