I don't see how good a motor that overheats when driven spiritedly is any good.

The VQ37 may last longer under boost or other forced induction but under stock conditions, I'll take the motor that doesn't overheat when I want to drive fast.

Let's not forget the 370Z's insane road noise when you are driving. It sounds like you are sitting in an 80s Pathfinder with the interior removed. I have to yell to talk to the other person in the car when driving. The 350Z is much more civil.
