if you are talking about the DE and rev-up motor's. the HR is an entirely different story, much more power no problem.
and 316hp Naturally aspirated stock.
not to mention it loves boost and it's head flow rate is great and on the HR motors the heads get cooled first which is a bonus.
the VQ35HR and VQ37VHR guys are making anywheres from 400-500whp on pump and 600whp on race on the stock engines reliably. some people have blown their motors but there will always be a few.
