We are finishing up development on the intake. A true cold air intake for this car would be very difficult because of space. Intakes should be ready in the next month or two.

Interesting that you say this. Intakes on the G37 (at least the STILLEN Gen 3's) yielded good results even without a tune. Now once there are intakes finished and dyno results are in for the 3.0t Q50's you might be able to claim this as true, but as of now we have only seen people slap cone filters on the factory MAF's which do result in a power loss. Because factory intakes are restrictive there are definitely gains to be found.
