ChicagoZ.com: What got you hooked to the G35 that you
ended up purchasing it?

StusG35: I would see them around town so I test drove one. I was pretty
much hooked on its comfort and drive ability. So I searched
around for a low mileage 2005 Black AT Coupe in 2006. Found
one and bought it. After driving it about a month I got used
to the power so I started to read about some basic mods and I
did the easy stuff… SES Exhaust, JWT Pop Charger and BLOX
Plenum spacer. Months later I met “KMECH_7” on the forum,
Kevin, and he showed me his VORTECH supercharger in his car.
He let me drive it and then the mod bug bit. More power!

ChicagoZ.com: What action does your G35 mostly see?
drag, autox, road race, show car, weekend car, and/or
daily driver...

StusG35: Mostly just a whenever car with good weather, show car, and I
like to drag it at Great Lakes Dragaway occasionally.

ChicagoZ.com: Any performance specs? 1/4 mile@mph,
whp/wtorq, track times...

StusG35: Last year before the E85 conversion with 1000 cc injectors and
bigger intercooler it was a mid 12 second car. Currently it should
be in the 11’s. Upcoming this year I’ll add Osiris, my bigger cog
and an even smaller pulley hopefully raising my boost to 18 PSI.
It should be in the low 11’s or 10’s with luck with around 600 +
whp. Hopefully the blower can handle it.

ChicagoZ.com: What are your current modifications? Any
future modifications/wishlist? Whether it's performance,
handling, appearance, and/or sound system....

ChicagoZ.com: Name one thing that you love and hate the
most about your G35.

StusG35: Hate - It’s only a fair weather car now. Too slippery with rain and
absolutely No snow
Love – Everything else about it.

Future mods:
Osiris, cog and pulley - very soon w/another tune.
Tein Q blow off valve
MOMO Steering wheel, with quick release and paddle shifters
Polished Rear diff cover
ART Pipes and better exhaust with electric cut outs –
and probably another tune due to this.
More Carbon Fiber

Yeah, electric cut outs then ART pipes then a different exhaust. This winter. (and a tune in spring.) I have lots of different ideas cooking.

God, someone rid me of this mod bug please!

Question, where or who would I go through to get braided lines like your car has? I've searched and search and can only find a place in Australia. Thanks for any pointers.

Thanks for a the nice comments.

I forgot to add in the extra help I got from a couple of good friends when I blew up the stock motor due to too much hp with the supercharger. Steve Rehm and Kevin Mech. They were kind enough to build my motor in a garage and teach me more about this motor than I had previously cared not to learn. It's funny how involved this project can get. I never built a car like this before and it was a fun project.

Thanks again to anyone else I forgot to mention.

Just look at that little motor I had.

despite that, it was a good looking engine bay... can never go wrong with gloss black and polished parts!

it will be interesting to hear your view on the different motor setups in the G, low-end to mid-range power of the LS3 vs a smaller mid to high revving power of a SC-V6??? i mention this because it seems the rear end on these platforms is rather light, lots of wheel spin, even with n/a stock setups. i'm guessing the V8 will pay dividends in the 30-150mph pulls with taller gearing.
