Hey all - been a long time supporter of InfinitiScene which can't be beat for FX specific discussion. But I don't get to meet or see most of those cars because they are all over the country.

It was just time to get into the local community so I can actually get out to some meets. Hoping to find a few other VQ35DE owners out there...

Very nice dual exhaust...I never knew that they made performance parts for that vehicle...What all have you done to the motor, cuz it appears that it's no longer stock...

That's one of the things I LOVE about this car - when I'm done it will be a total sleeper!

I don't have any engine mods. besides the intake & exhaust, I have a plenum spacer. I'm looking into the JWT TT kit and talking to JTran studios about doing a Stage 2 build on the motor. Forged everything, fuel delivery and engine management. Been doing a LOT of research for a while now - just need a bit more time to make it happen.

Basically, any engine building that works for the G35 or the 350Z works for me too!

Be sure to check the thread as there has been a few updates...


And just an idea, but have you thought about removing the roof rack and painting the lower black plastics to match the vehicle, or at least remove the pin stripe? I removed the roof rack on my navigator and it made it look a lot better, and here when I get the money to do it, Imma paint my lower plastics and remove my pinstripes...

I have seen a bunch of FXs without rails and I just like mine with the rails. I had thought about getting them chromed since they are the only brushed alum trim on the whole car.

And yes - totally thinking about color matching the plastic trim - that looks sick when it's done right. The pinstripe I could take or leave. It doesn't bother me. Been looking into some wheels too - my OEM are 20" so I want some 22". Problem is that I want them to be performance - gotta be lighter than stock. That's really hard to find in a 22" tire that I actually like. Was thinking staggered and a modest lip. Chrome/bright. If anybody has any suggestions, I'm listening.
