As of recently, I’ve been getting a lot of questions about car builds and should I get this or that. I am always willing to help others out with information, heck, If you’re local, hit me up and I’ll be glad to even lend you a hand. I’m still new to engine internals myself, but I’ll help in anyway I can. With my current supercharger build on the way, I spend every ounce of free time I have researching and reading. Before you jump into modifying your car, PLEASE take the time to do lots of research, PLEASE know what you’re getting yourself into. Building cars isn’t for everyone, but for the minority that do it, we enjoy it. If you’re planning on a full naturally-aspirated build, more power to you! Know that it’ll cost twice as much as boost and generally get less power. If you’re going boost, the number rule is to know that everyday is a chance. Boost is dangerous PERIOD. It doesn’t matter the amount of precautions you take, or the amount of money you’ve spent, the motor doesn’t say “Well, he spent ten grand into the motor, I won’t detonate”. It doesn’t work like that, but if you choose to go down the path of no return, know that at any time, the motor can knock, detonate, tick, or completely die. Those who gamble the high stakes know this and depending on your point of view; it’s worth every risk. This not only applies to boost, but everything to do with modifying or flooring the car at WOT.
Now, I’m not saying all this to scare away any potential car enthusiasts from modifying their cars. I used to keep adding mods without any reading, just looking at the parts and how cool they were. I’ve blown a motor before, it ain’t fun and your pockets/wallet won’t like you either. Do your research when jumping into a build especially when fucking with boost. With that being said, If you’re willing to take this high stakes gamble, welcome to the world of modification.
Like I said earlier, I’m willing to help anyone who wants or needs it. Ask me questions and I will gladly answer them to the best of my ability. However, I am not a mechanic by trade, but do work at an automotive repair center on the sales floor. I don’t know EVERYTHING there is to motors, and I mainly only know about Honda’s and the Nissan VQ35. I am going to school for automotive technology, however don’t have certifications so take my advice with a grain of salt, and don’t hold me liable to any damage that may be caused due to error.
While on the outside this looks like just another nice Zed it is what is on the inside that interests me more. It isn’t that hard to fit a VQ35DE out of a 350Z under that carbon fibre bonnet (as any amount of V8 motors have been shoehorned in these cars engine bays) but to fit the 350Z interior in the cabin( and make it look like it was there all along) is a lot more difficult.
