Thought Id make a post in this section and share my build
At around 60K miles I decided to boost the stock vq35. The first choice was the vortech supercharger with a 2.87 pulley. it made 402rwhp 360 rwtq. I ran this setup for about a year.
... Vortech was giving me problems so i decided to sell the unit.
Little did I know , I was boosted again... this time with a boosted performance single turbo kit. it made around 450rwhp 430rwtq.
A few months ago I decided to retire the stock engine at 100K miles.
I will update the thread as I go!
Went ahead and bought an LS2 with 29K miles of a C6 corvette, as well as a t56 6-speed.

How much was the motor? How much was the kit from Sikky? How does the total weight of the engine and its accessories compare to the VQ?
