Hey All, I was hoping that I could stop by and someone could give me some suggestions. I am in the middle of choosing a car, i have been saving for a while and I want to get a car that I can work on and really turn it into a nice and fast car. I think the G35 Coupe is it but everyone tells me...why not get a Mustang or a Viper (used of course) for just a little more. My friends, who are obviously bias towards AMERICAN made cars say that but I still like the G35. Are aftermarket performance parts be availabel for the G? Like b olt on turbo/supershargers? if so how about the trans and the motor mount, and possibly the rear and suspension? If someone could give me some ideas or insight it would be MUCH APPRECIATED. Thanks!

I would skip the Mustang, so many of them out there, hard to stand out. The Viper is okay but it is very expensive to work on. The G35 coupe is very nice, not much available yet for it but it starting to have go fast parts.
Of those three I would get the G35 coupe. Or blow the money on a Z06 Vette, that's just me speaking.[dunno][lol][lol]

Welcome, John. Gotta agree with Gardiner here. The only Mustangs worth getting are OLD ones. The newer Mustangs don't have much moxy IMHO, and there are way too many of them. Viper would be very cool if you can afford it, and the G35 coupe... well... just read the signature! [:D]

Thanks Guys! My friend recently bought a Z05 and he is telling me to go for the Z06 too, but I am just not a "vette" guy. I think I lack in the gold chains, half buttoned shirt and ape like hairy chest to be driving a vette...that's only my persepective though. next year the new mustand model comes out, and I know everyone and their mother will be getting one.

Do they plan on making a TT model for the Z/G35? How about Toyota, have you guys heard of any plans to revive the Supra TT? I am still leaning towards the G35, for now...

No gold chains here. If you are not a "Vette" guy do not take a Z06 out for a test drive. It will ruin you, I have driven so many cars in my life and this car is the only one that really excites me from its raw power. Launching from a standstill a being able to not smoke the tires in first, second and third gears can be a bear. But if you can handle the power you can rip 0-60 in about 4.5 seconds and turn the 1/4 in the 11's. There is not much on the street that I can't take if I want to take. I have done just a little tweaking and I have raised my HP from the factory 405 to about 435.

My G35 on the other hand is a much more civil creature that will suprise many people with its speed. It is much more comfortable to drive and ride in and take on long trips. It will probably stay stock while I own it. It is a very nice car and my clients enjoy riding in it. But when I take one out in the Vette and give them a 0-60 80% acceleration you should hear them squeal. The Z06 is a beast, the G35 is well rounded.

I meant no offense by it Gardiner, but I do like the new look! My friends Z05 has a similar feel from the line (although not as powerful as the ZO6) but he can grab hold and take off. He has ran it with his best time being 12.08 (I don't remember his speed though). He has the Titanium exhaust from the ZO6, Black Wing, lowered suspension. I think that's it (for now). Ehhh...we'll see, I will just banging my head against the wall until the right soultion comes out. [banghead]

Thanks for everyone's answers I' keep going through and seeing what is going on. I'll let you know what I decide.

Yeah, C5, ZO5 they are all the same right? My bad, not paying attention again. it is a 2002 C5. Thanks for the link bro, I'll check them out now. Has anyone in here done any serious modifications to their G35 outside of the cold air intake and exhaust? I have been looking for some DYNO tests for either the Z or the G35 but coming up short. I'll continue to look. Thanks!
[cheers]

How long did it take? Was I on it or what?

by the way, John... what does "Klawria D' Notrub" mean? Is that your name? If so, where's that from?
