Default Best way to get a G35 to 400+ HP

I'm getting a stock G35 6MT soon and my goal is to get this bad boy to 400+ wheel horse power. I am totally new to the scene, so I am looking for any advice from the other owners out there. Turbo, Supercharger, exhaust, chips or a combination, what do you guys recommend to build the ultimate rocket.

Thanks,
Marco

Just get a 2006 corvette. It will cost you less (JK) but it will cost U lots to get the G up to 400 HP.

For 400+ whp I think you best bet is a single or twin turbo. As far as budget goes I think you're looking at $12k on the low side to $25k+ for a fully built motor.

There are no chips for the VQ ECU at this time, the closest alternative is a reflash by Technosquare.

Now I'm just laid bad - G35Princess

I was thinking maybe $15-20k for Twin snails+engine reinforcement. My question is why throw in $20k into a ~$40k car. I rather just get somethin else IMO. to each their own.

Don't know if this is 100% true but....

I've heard our VDC will cause detonation with Nitrous if the system is not turned off and subsequently kicks in during wheel spin. Just an FYI you may want to look into prior to going with speed in a bottle.

Actually nitrous oxide is very safe as long as your engine is in good condition. I used to have nitrous set up on my Civic and used it very succesfully. The only reason why I blew my motor is because I got greedy and tried to squeeze too much! In other words, I used too much nitrous. I was squeezing a 75 shot and decided I was going to try to run 12's (I was running 13's) by changing my jet and going with a 100 hp shot. It was too much for an unreinforced engine. I actually didn't blow the whole engine but I did blow some big chunks out of my exhaust valves. But as long as you are reasonable with the nitrous and don't get greedy like I did, nitrous is an inexpensive way to increase your hp. On a V6 like ours, a 100hp shot would be perfect! Just make sure that you use a throttle switch because it is a lot safer than using the button!

you guys think its possible to have aroun 400 with an all-motor application. I was thinking about headers, bored head, pistons, rods, valve springs, cams, cam gears, etc etc...

yeah its very possible but i depends on how mutch you want to spend like you can easly drop about 5 grand rebuilding your motor but it may make 400hp but but you will be subjected to only beeing all motor cause if you want to build hp you need to go with a higher compression and you cant spray or boost on that high of conmpression motors where if ou buiolt the engin witha power adder in mind then you can make the adjustsment acordinly
