    Ownership Verified: 09 Infiniti G37x

    I could really care less since this is my daily, I have the 240 that I have to worry about heat soak when I track it. I'll probably build heat shields at some point but the ducting from the factory intake is still in place so it's not as bad as you might think. I will be driving this car through...

    Ownership Verified: 09 Infiniti G37x

    The fun has already begun... These parts just came in today, i got out of work and threw the intakes on real quick. I'm playing in a golf outing tomorrow, I think the exhaust will wait until Sunday if the weather holds out. I indulged in a few IPAs while working so all I can tell you is...

    Ownership Verified: 09 Infiniti G37x

    I checked out a manual sedan and was not sold, the clutch was pretty light but it was quite numb. I have a 350z clutch in the 240 and it provides much more feedback. I have my other personal reasons why I chose auto even though the 7 speed auto isn't flawless, which is my biggest complaint with...

    Ownership Verified: 09 Infiniti G37x

    I bought an Infiniti G37x about two weeks ago to replace my beater Buick. I have had beaters pretty much my entire life and while I don't mind wrenching, at the end of the day it's still a beater. My work has treated me well that I was able to save a little and I bought this cash. It's a 2009...

    Time to replace my beater with another beater, G35, IS300, TL

    A G8 would be my number one choice, except beater or salvage ones still go for 15k. I am really trying to avoid taking a loan out and having a car payment. - - - Updated - - - I thought about an M45 or even an M35 but I am not willing to travel 500 miles for a beater and there is nothing that...

    Time to replace my beater with another beater, G35, IS300, TL

    I'm looking to replace my beater 1998 Buick Regal GS with a sedan in the 8-10 k USD range. My main priorities is that it cannot be slower than the Buick, which I always called comedically quick with the supercharged 3.8. I occasionally cart around the bigwigs from corporate and I have a...

    Ownership Verified: Diamond in the rough

    The car will be going lower now that it's mocked up. Thinking about getting a new set of coilovers, mine are almost 8 years old that I initially bought used for cheap being broke at the time. I also have a fender roller for the rear once it warms up a bit.

    300zx 30mm calipers. A little trick I learned working at Autozone, no one there knows the difference between calipers so you can use your single piston junk as cores for the 4 piston big brakes. It cost me less with the terrible employee discount to get reman calipers than used, just pay the...

    Bought some new wheels. My mockup beater wheels to roll around on didn't clear the big brakes, and since I went 5 lug, I needed something. http://www.ebay.com/itm/XXR-530-17-C-Black-Concave-Rims-Staggered-Wheels-5x114-3-95-96-98-240sx-S14-SE-/221965380737?vxp=mtr Completed front end Bonus...

    I've been driving the car around for a while NA, figured it was time to step up. I have no intentions of making this a show car, I would rather put miles on the thing. Still a lot of work to do, but plugging away little by little. adjustable fpr ebay manifold tial 15 lb spring single walbro 255...

    The left one has a Dimarzio humbucker in the bridge, the black on is stock as far as I know, the blond has Bill Lawrence Keystones I put in yesterday (not shown), and the red Squire has a Hot Rails in the bridge. The White MIM will more than likely get all new electronics in the near future...
