S197 gets 25+mpg on the highway any day of the week. Zip, with 4.10 gears and a race tune averages over 24mpg on the highway. That little difference is worth not having a car that sounds like a coffee grinder.

I'd hold out for the 370Z if you're gonna go the Nissan route.

And you're not gonna get much better than a stock 3v for highway driving unless you drop down to a 4-cylinder. You can get decent exhaust that's not a resonator (read: fart can), but anything that's small displacement has to spin to make any power.

get a damn mustang and stop all of your dreams of a 350z and all that crap.......with a few simple bolt-ons a 350z cant even THINK about hanging with an s197, unless you cant drive.

Yup. Al is correct. And that's with a 94 octane race tune, and I have my timing bumped up a wee bit. If I put in a 91 octane torque tune, I can hit 28 or so @ 70mph, and I can break 30 if I keep it to 65 and poke along home on the back roads.

The G is a nicer car, with nicer appointments, and is a better built car.

But I would still buy the Mustang because it looks badass and sounds ferocious. The G sounds like a.....G.
