I'm going to say nitrous. You can keep your gas economy and engine wear to a minimum when not wanting the power. It does cost on a continual basis because you have to fill up your tank, but you can definitely ration it for appropriate times.

Fewer moving parts would indicate better reliability than other FI methods. You can tune it pretty easily and parts are relatively inexpensive.

Logically this seems to make the most sense. Nitrous is nothing more than FI in a bottle anyway. Still a pain in the *** when you run out of it though >.<

A good tune is what makes your setup the most reliable... get a electronic boost controller and run on lower boost for normal driving and only turn up the boost when you really need the extra power.

I would say JWT 530bb (what I personally use)
Greddy 18g
Boosted performance mid mount system (single turbo)

are the best setups for a stock block.

If you truly plan to build the motor sooner then later save up and do it right the first time. the best kit for a stock block will not always be the best setup for big power on a built block down the road.

Once again the best tune is the best reliability. Do your research on who will tune your car before you just take it to whoever.

Who says? I have almost 400whp on a Vortech and stock motor and I still get 20mpg average and never have any problems, same as when I was bone stock NA. The trick is to do it RIGHT the first time even if it may not be the cheapest or most direct route to the most amount of power. I'm very happy with what I have and wouldn't trade it for anything, even more power.

Cool you're either running without a proper tune, or rarely hitting boost.

LOL, , and @ this thread at the same time. The 370Z FI section here is so damn weak and pathetic. I was away from the forums for a little while and I'm truly disappointed to see no significant progress on the VQ37 platform.

I've had my 370Z for just over 2 years now and all I see here on the forums is the same weaksauce stuff with Stillen, GTM, or Greddy. Was hoping I would see some more options and innovations by now, including at least a couple of nice custom fabbed FI setups and/or a big power build by now. It's a shame to see that the VQ37 platform is so stagnant and uninspired.
