Ok... allow me to elaborate then.
The regular 370 uses a Y-pipe setup for the midpipe on its catback exhaust. The extra power in the Nismo comes from a tune that supports the H-pipe configuration of the midpipe plus a slightly higher flowing muffler section of its exhaust. There are still bottle-necks in that piping that can be optimized via an aftermarket solution - the factory NISMO exhaust still goes down below 2" in sections, whereas the aftermarket exhausts I have mentioned above are a solid 2.5" diameter piping throughout. The exhausts that I have outlined in my previous post will still gain power on a NISMO version. There are plenty of options out there, but the ones I have mentioned have continuously demonstrated and proven power gains on every version of the 370Z.
Good luck in your search. Plenty of youtube videos out there to help you decide on sound.
