Hello!
I'm minutes away from purchasing a 2018 INFINITI Q60 3.0t Luxe Coupe RWD
car has 22k miles on the VR30, single owner, clear carfax.
I am already looking at mods for the car:
1. Heat Exchanger
2. Lower Down Pipes
3. cat-back Exhaust
4. Intake
5. ECUTEK tuner
6. Blow off Valve (HKS?)
7. Cooling Expansion Tank
8. Driveshaft (AMS?)
9. Coilovers (BCR) car is going to be a daily & Wheels (Volk)

goal is to make 100+hp

Please chime in if have a moment, share with me your experiences.

Thanks!

Welcome. If the car didn't come with 100+ hp it's not an authentic Q60 馃榿

I'm at 5500 elev in Alb, NM... I'm afraid to dyno here at this elev...
Every vehicle around you is at that same elevation so you're all on the same playing field. Anyway, back in 2017 when the Q60 first hit the market, one of the reviewers put a Q60 3.0 on a dyno and were surprised that Infiniti had underestimated the advertised HP ;)

I've only test driven a 300 once and I took it easy so I couldn't really give an honest review comparing it to my RS 400. IMO, if you want 400 hp, buy 400 hp. If you want 700 hp, buy 700 hp instead of using mods to get there.

Hmmm.... ok. I'm a bit of a wrencher, so i do like new projects. Guess i can always add to the RS400.. but the price on the 300 vs 400 is significant.

(my Camaro in my avatar pic is 590hp) she's my beast.

IMO mods are a gamble, but some do like to play that game.
