Default 2008 350z intake that don't hrydro lock motor

Okay I'm fixing to be getting a 2008 350z hr 6 speed maybe an it had a hydro locked motor an was replaced but has salvage title because it was claimed on insurance but he only wants $8k for it with 75k miles on car an 90k on motor it's all clean no scratches on paint no rust it looks like a garage kept car

So basically I want to get to 300whp an I want the intake where it goes into the front bumper by stillen I think it's there gen 3 but wouldn't that suck up water during the rain or should I just stick with one that fits where factory intake sets I really don't want to hydro lock it up

Yes I know ima need more than intake to get 300whp ima get tomei exhaust/y pipe an art pipes an maybe a spacer an a tune

There is no spacer for HR.
as for hydro lock. Dont drive through deep water. Rain storm wont hydro lock it. Driving Through a large body of water will

Intake and exhaust won't get you anywhere near 300whp. $8K is also way too much. Sounds like you have some more homework to do.

I'm following 3 people people on instagram that has tomei exhaust/Y pipe an art test pipes, injen cold air intakes, a tune an they are making 290 to 302 to the wheels look up @08nismo an @freshkiicks on ig them boys put there zs to work
Also I don't know where your from but hr motors 350z in my area with over 100,000 miles still run about $10k plus so as long as they ain't nothing wrong with this car it's a dang good deal it's the cheapest one I found I found another one for 7,500 but it's been modified, an has 120k miles these cars aint cheap in Tennessee or Georgia for some reason I'd rather have a plain stock one makes me feel like person that owned it hasn't drove the **** out of it every where they went a salvage title doesn't bother me since it ain't been wrecked I mean it don't have curb rash on wheels or nothing

Still, $8k is too much for a salvage title Z. Call your insurance company and find out how much insurance will cost. Then you will see why.

Salvage title cars are good for one thing, track cars.

Why even bother asking questions if you already have all the answers?

freshkick is an egotistic idiot. secondly people on this forum arent teenage kids, we actually have experience and have been on these cars since before the release so i think theyd know more than a few teenage brats on instagram. you want 300whp? give me 500 and ill tweak the dyno numbers so your car reads 500whp easy.

because other driver skills isnt a factor at all haha. again, give me 500 bucks and ill give you a dyno vid of your stock car pulling 500whp...

freshkick is nothing about another teenage brat street racing acting like hes the greatest ever. he can claim 300 all he wants but dyno are easily manipulated to read high, low or any damn number you want. a rolling street race proves nothing but the fact he is another dumb kid putting peoples life at risk for stupid likes on instagram.

all these so call "car enthusiats" but wont race in a safe manner. take it too the track "oh but there no track near me, boo hoo the closest track is 2 hrs away." yet they claim to be car enthusiast but wont drive their cars for 2 hours to keep the public safe...

sorry for the rant but i cant stand idiots and this forum forbids street racing, and by you naming one of the biggest street racing idiot in the Z community as a referemnce, youre going to get laugh at

So all them people that race in Texas that make over 1,000+ hp must be idiots to right? Every body thinks different you must be some 40 or 50 year old man

he don't claim he's the greatest driver ever I don't see why you are getting so mad he does have some dang good shifting though I will give him credit for that

I don't like racing from a dig I think it's stupid because it's all about traction an who can take off better which I think is stupid but everyone has their own opinion I think starting from a 40 role or 80 for the faster cars actually let's the car speaks for its self to see who's really faster because you don't get all the traction problems that 80% of dragsters have now not everybody has a track around them but their is alot of drag strips about every where my closest track is 3 an half hours away I ain't about to drive that far when I can have fun on the streets like the rest of the world that buys fast cars

Your pretty much saying thay everybody should drive a toyota pruis an should never floor it
An they shouldn't sale lambos or porsche or any other fast cars unless you go to tract only

Get over it, people's gonna race just like people's does alot of others things they shouldn't do that's life brother

OK, everybody. COOL IT.

Nobody mentioned "street racing" other than via inference so let's let it be.

But there will no discussion of street racing or how far someone pulled on someone else unless it was on a track.

The interesting thing that distinguishes the real racers and the wannabes (those people who risk INNOCENT lives - and emergency services resources digging them out of their crumpled cars) is that the racers don't use their track victories or good track days for "LIKE", "thumbs up" or "follow me" points on social media.

And yes, I AM in the above highlighted category+ and raced on the track before MOST PEOPLE here were even born. One should hope one reaches my age without getting taken out doing something stupid.

back on topic, if an engine is hydro locked its either because the whole car was flooded which is a bad idea to buy, or that the owner was stupid enough to try and drive through a flooded area.

no intake in the history of intake developed will ever cause an engine to hydro lock. if so, its user error/stupidity, not the intake itself. my corvette ram air sits 1.5 ft off the ground, the ls3 has yet to flood....

Okay thanks for the info he told me that it sucked in water through the intakes which I started google about 350z hydro locked from sucking water through the intakes an found two people that has done it they must have drove through a puddle
This is what kind of intakes I want but I don't want it to auck up water from the rain I have herd so some good hp gains from having it in the front breather cooler air

Puddle has to be deep enough to submerge the filters to hydro lock the motor. $8k for a salvage title that needs a motor , no thank you
