But I am sure we will see 700hp, 800hp, probably even 900hp from the tuners within a year, even if they have to rebuild the motor from the bottom up to get there.
I have heard that Nissan specifically built the engine in a way to make it very difficult for the tuners to extract a lot more power. That being said, FI turners are known to pull off miracles.
