Before people tell me to post this in a Z forum, I already did... The cars are very closely related and I have had a couple G35 people interested in a trades so I figured I would post it here too. I am contemplating selling or trading this car due to some unforeseen financial issues. The ulimate goal is to free up about 10 - 15k so please do not offer trades of vehicles above 20k unless you still want to give me $10k on top of it. So yes, I am open to the idea of trading for another car. SO, all the people who post "I will trade you" to a for sale add, here is your chance. I truely love this car and which my situation was better and that I did not have to get rid of this amazing machine.
The car is the stock Nissan 350z Lemans Sunset Orange. It is a base model (the lightest) 03 with extremely
low miles. In the pics below you will see some chrome wheels. I got rid of them and replaced them with a lighter, more aggressive setup. But i am only including the stock ones right now. We may be able to work sothing out for the other set too. There are 16k original miles one the car and under 2k miles on the engine, turbos, etc… This car runs and idles as smoothly as stock yet has double the power of a stock 350z. It extremely quiet under normal driving conditions, however, when you hit full boost and the wastegates vent out through the open dumps and it sounds extremely loud and mean. It is the perfect combination. It produced 496 rwhp (rear wheel horsepower) at 16 PSI with 478 foot pound of torque on normal pump gas. Despite the car's insane horsepower, it still manages to get 27-28 miles per gallon when you are not running it hard. This is a true 500hp reliable daily driver. Everything has been installed professionally so it is an ultra clean job.

The build and tuning of the car
The engine came from turbokits.com. I bought the first one they ever sold. I later found out that the shortblock actually came from Speed Force Racing in CA. Then as for the build and install, Raceline of Cincinnati assembled the engine and put everything in the car. The initial tune was performed at Raceline in Cincinnati. They produced the 496 hp number on 16-17 PSI. with a conservative tune. This was Raceline's first experience with tuning a 350z and their first time using the U-Tec EMS. I have to say Raceline did a great job. However, with it being their first time with both, I wanted a second opinion on the car. I took it to Dave Shiroma from Function Tuned in Virginia. He is extremely experienced in the U-tec and the 350z/G35's and was actually impressed with Raceline’s tune. So it is not just me that was impressed with the ability of this local shop. Dave mainly changed the timing from being so conservative and was able to put down 486 14 PSI. We could have raised the boost even further, get a high pump gas HP and then switch to race gas for a 600+ whp number, but my goal was to have 450 WHP so I was quite satisfied. Especially since both hp figures were off low reading dyno’s (mustang and dyno dynamics.) I also did not want to spend another $200 on a hotel room either just to have a high number to brag about. Finally, I also had a good friend in Daytona Beach who is Airplane Mechanic / car tuner look over they tune and he felt very confident that it was a rock solid tune with 100% daily driver characteristics. So basicly one shop has had their hands in the build of this car. The turbo kit, engine build, and everything was all installed at the same time by Raceline. And the tune has been under a magnifying glass!
