Well thats better than nothing I suppose. Interesting. I had never heard of dealerships putting turbo kits on cars at customers request.

Well then his car's F/I, if its like comparing a 335 to a 328. Dont know what you can really do. Maybe throw a rock out the window as he flys by?

I've raced a single turbo g35, dig, roll, straight up, after 120 he pulled, but he never pulled away.

It's a drivers race.

You suck.

There are single and twin turbo kits for that engine. Theres a 350z on ebay for sale with 650whp/650tq. He lives in California, where I believe there are more modified cars than any other state.

drivers race.. haha

dude a tt g35/350z with built motor will destroy any 335i ANY!!!!!!!! 335I

the 335i has some mods out but no where near where the vq35 is at right now.. give it time and maybe the 335i will be able to compete but i would guess at least turbo upgrades or something idk..

stock for stock a 335i should win except the new 350z motor its pretty stout so maybe a drivers race?

anyways dont feel bad.. ive left plenty of amg's,c6 z06's and many other cars wondering wtf just happened

You were the person I was talking about. Bro, how strong is the VQ engine? What are some safe numbers it can handle without worrying about blowing something. I'm really thinking about a 350z for a second car.

it's no slouch... there's a 1000+ hp 350Z in my area right now and he is insanely fast... It's a lot of work and A LOT of money, but the potential is all there

on a stock block 400rwhp is where i would stop..

but about 75% of the TT vq's have built motors so you can run a 500-600rwhp for a daily easy thats where i got mine its like the perfect street car anything more then that and your spending serious serious money

www.gtmotorsports.com builds stroker kits that make insane power but its serious money

You suck.

You are an idiot. You think that's the only tune out for a VQ/RWD platform? There are plenty of options available for the 350z/G35 that would leave a 335 for dead.

How am I an idiot, i never said that I raped the vq off of a dig, line, roll, etc. I posted about MY EXPERIENCE with one....

I've got a buddy that has a TT 350, I would never take him because he's put tons of money into his car and he's had 2 motors already, he knows what to do to put down the power, and he's up near the 700hp/650tq range. The G that I ran with was from performance factory -- look it up before you talk junk.

I know there are plenty of options for the vq motors, again, i was talking about MY EXPERIENCE with one.

You must be the idiot, now stop pointing fingers....

you're an idiot for telling someone it's a drivers race and they suck based on your one experience. How do you know the car the OP ran wasn't similar to the one your buddy has? How is that a drivers race?
