    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
