Haha I appreciate that they put the redline exactly at 7450 RPM. That's some attention to detail right there.

Haha yeah the ND2's ultra light weight is what's making the engine feel strong, but the engine by itself doesn't seem anything special.

For the acceleration plots, agree on the p/w ratio, but I...

Based on my experience having owned both an FR-S and 350z, I'd take the next gen GR86 over a 400z. That's especially true with both cars basically re-using the prior gen chassis.
