MOD's for G35 Coupe

Postby rhuarc3 » Sat Apr 26, 2003 1:47 pm

Does Anyone Know where online i can order some engine and exterior mods for the g35? i just purchase one and was hoping to get at least a new chip in it. any help would be great.

i'm also thinking about removing the badging on the rear of the car. does anyone know a good way to do this without screwing up the paint?

Stillen (one of our sponsors) has some items out for that car.

They are said to work on a turbo kit as well, pics of truboesd G35 protypes from Stillen have been circulating.

There was at least one more company working on a reliable turbokit, as soon as its out we'll let you know.

Other than that the usual VQ add -ons should work (Frankencar etc)

thanks i'll have to look into that.

bought the coupe as a birthday present for myself.

coupe leather A/T with premium, aero and performance wheels. brilliant silver with willow.

i'm putting the drilled aluminium pedals in as soon as they arrive.

are the brembo brakes worth investing in?

1)Sounds nice post pics!! Send them in to our members ride section w/ a write-up (see memebrs ride in my sig we stil need a G35)

2) Show pics of that too , how much you paid and were you ordered

3) depends how hard you drive, the stock G35 brakes are among the best money can buy in a production car (outside of $70,000+ cars).Actually stopping distances are better than almost all production cars in any price range, period.Where a larger aftermarket system might give you improvements in, is fade resistance, not that the stock brake have a weakness in that area (they dont) but by going with larger multi caliper brakes like the Brembos you can add a lot of fade resistance.

One would have to drive "very" hard to outbrake the stockers on the G's.

i took the infinitii letters and the g35 badging off of the trunk and it looks better. windows are getting tinted on tuesday. unfortunately the legal limit is 35% so they won't be as dark as i'd like. well anyways, i will hopefully have pics on wednesday.

How do you get the letters off without screwing up the paint?

very carefully with either a heat gun or a hair dryer. hold fingers next to the letters on the paint so that you can tell when it is getting too hot. the letters should be easy to peel off once they are warm. then just use bug and tar remover to get the glue off. wax teh spots as soon as possible.

Use an old credit card and wedge it under the emblems. The plastic card shouldn't damage the paint.

i used an old credit card on my rear emblems and it worked pretty good. had alot of excess glue left, even after heating the emblems w/ a hair drier. once all the glue was gone though, it looks good. i've heard using dental floss also works well.

i got the windows tinted finally. looks awesome. wish mass. would let us do them darker than 35%. but i did the rear window 20% just to make it a little darker. still waiting for the new pedals. i'm looking for some clear front marker lights and am contemplating putting blue bulbs in them. also in the clearance light but i don't know how to get at them to change the bulbs out. does anyone know how to do this.

and pics will be up on saturday after i treat my g to a nice bath and shinin' (if it isn't raining again!)

anyone hear anything on the nismo turbo kit yet? i haven't had a chance to call jayson.

I like the Skyline idea but I think I'll wait to see your pics of the naked trunk. BTW, how much did the window tint cost?

I was just going through the old threads and was curious as to whether or not you have done anything else to your coupe.
