Default What kind of mods I should get?

Hey guys I have a 2015 Q50S 3.7. I currently have the Infiniti sport muffler kit. I wanna do mods now. Any suggestions for modding my car? I’m trying to make my car louder without making my check engine light turning on. I currently have warranty and I don’t want to void it. So is there any way I can make my car louder with out voiding my warranty . Any other mods I can do to?

Not much other than forced induction for a 3.7 to add significant power like the 3.0T in the 2016+ Q's. A nice exhaust system is a nice add but only gets maybe 15HP and about the same torque, maybe a bit more. The 3.7 sounds better than the 3.0T. IMHO.
Is your "sport" muffler kit installed?

My G37IPL (3.7) sounded purrrrrfect.

I'm new to this forum, didn't expect such a rude welcoming. My point was based on research that is what I have found... the Performance Heat Exchanger is a must to start. Thanks anyway.

You are talking about 2 different engine types and models that's why it's confusing. Start your own thread instead of muddying the waters in this one.

To not void your warranty? Really depends on your dealer, but really there isn't that much out there. You could do a full cat back, HFC's, , Intakes and a tune. You'd make over 300 WHP but your warranty would most likely be gone( Engine/trans) related issues.

I have the above and front and rear sway bars and the car is really fun to drive. More than enough power to get around and to surprise a folks but nothing to crazy

Just start spelling everyone's names wrong and you will fit right in.
