Performance exhaust systems- Aftermarket exhaust systems are engineered to remove the  gases out of the engine at a more efficient rate than that of stock exhaust systems. This is a critical process in increasing horsepower. The faster the outflow of exhaust, the sooner the engine can intake airflow from the cold air intake, the faster your 300zx will run.

Reducing weight- Carbon fiber hoods, hatches and body kits are available which will help reduce the weight of your 300zx. For every 100 lbs. removed from your 300zx you can expect to regain 11+ horsepower.
