370Z or vw mk7 r

Hey there , looking at buying a new (used) car I like the 370 but just think the power difference is a big difference to a tuned golf r although the z is rear wheel drive which I like can have more fun.

it’s a hard choice to make what do you guys think

U can make ~235rwkw (probably more with e85?) with mods on a NA Z. That is plenty quick, and the looks of the Z totally kill the MK7 R. :)

And a Z is heaps more fun. Plus the girls turn their heads more at a Z than what is essentially a boring hatchback with go-faster bits in it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

^haha, so true.

 

I bought a brand new golf R last year & put a Burger motorsports tuning box on it (I had one on a BMW 335i as well, which really woke the car up, but the lack of LSD in that car was hard to take), anyway the golf was quick - especially using launch control (DSG box), thing would spin up all 4 wheels - problem with that car was it was only fun to drive when doing stupid speeds on the street & yeah, not much to look at..

Take them both for a test drive. One will put a smile on your face more than the other.

      Hey guys I am picking up my 09 370z at the start of may and I want to know how many people are in the Perth area? I am hoping to meet up with some fellow enthusiasts to do some spirited driving around the local tracks and the Perth hills of course, I'm not from here so would appreciate some local knowledge of the better roads to drive!! I have been trying to find fb related pages with not much luck so thought I'd try here. Cheers for your time and hope to meet some of you soon That Guy Sent from my S30 using Tapatalk

      Hi Guys Did a search but can't seem to find anyone with the same issue. I'm running the motordyne tdx2 exhaust with berk cats. When I first installed the exhaust, there was an noticeable increase in power. I never got a proper tune but the battery was unplugged during install. As the exhaust settled over the next few months, it got a little louder and then a gradual loss in performance. I noticed that some of the bolts needed to be re-tightened which explains the noise but when I took out the post cat air sensors, they were completely black and looked clogged with exhaust powder. I cleaned the sensors and put the stock cats and exhaust back on and the car feels a lot faster. Car never showed any fault signals. I'm not sure if this is normal with HFC's. I was considering getting the motordyne resonated test pipes but I'm now worried that the sensors will get dirty even quicker. I assume the sensors are detecting less 02 and therefore less fuel going in and reducing performance. Is this correct? Is it normal for this to occur with HFC's and test pipes? Any help would be appreciated.
