    I saw probably the best looking 350Z i have ever layed eyes on 3 years ago at the local drags, it had some sort of body kit on it deep dish rims really low to the ground and it had either a greddy or hks twin turbo kit, not sure what one. The sad thing is, that he ran it at least 5 times and his best run was a 13.3.

    very nice, stage 4ish wrx should definitely have no problem with a 350z. 350z is comparable to a stage 2 rex, a little faster or slower depending on driver. In my expirience it was a little slower.

    I ran a G35c 6speed that had 350Z intake, plenum spacer, full exhaust (common mods for G35c) against my WRX which at the time only had up/dp combo. We ran from ~65 upto 110/115 on the freeway and I lost by about 3 or 4 car lengths

    yes, thank you for bringing that up. I have driven both a 350Z and G35c in 6speed form and although they do not "feel" as fast as wrx that is only because the power is very linear and consistant and does not have that extra turbo kick the wrx does. The 350Z and G35c are both faster than a stock wrx and stage1 wrx though. It is just a different feeling of power.

    And thought it's difficult to admit, it's almost a boring powerband. With my G it was almost like I kept waiting for something to happen; then I'd look down at my speedo and go, oh, wow, I'm already going 60. But it's not the same high that you get from forced induction.

    +1

    My friends Z doesn't seem nearly as fast as I expected. After he drove another friends Stage 2 wrx, he said that it feels fast but when he looked down he was expecting to be going a lot faster.

    Precisely.

    It is a give and take though. I like the pull once the turbo kicks in, but on the other hand, you have to wait for that power, whereas on the G and Z it is there instantly.
    I think with the 350Z I expected more of a "surge" due to the whole "pure sport car" thing.. However, with the G35c 6spd I was pleasently suprised with how strong it felt... A car like that needs linear power to help retain that luxury/upper class feeling.

    The argument is basically the linear, yet strong power of the G/Z and the no-low-end but nice burst from the boosted wrx. The way I see it is to just turbo or blow the G/Z and call it a day. Best of all worlds

    This guy has the right idea:

    Sweet looking car but isn't it close to $5k for a turbo kit on a 305Z/G35?

    It costs around 10k at Godspeed to get everything done. Pretty sure it includes the turbo kit/install/tune.

    Yep...upgrades that net any substantial gains on the 350/G35 are quite expensive. But I'll agree with what Donnie said; boost that engine and the combination of G luxury and hp would be awesome!

    More actually.

    However, with the TT setup's that are available you are looking at an easy 350-375whp and you can get a supercharger for the car for much cheaper than the turbo, it makes good power, and the power is very linear and quite reliable.
