Default testament to the VQ35DE durability






only changed clutch one time, regular oil changes/ air filter changes.

original engine, original transmission.


I've seen a lot of threads lately with people asking what to do with their higher mileage Z's.

Do what this guy did, keep them! replace parts when they break, if they break.

indeed;

the owner says he beat on the car daily, always driven hard, kept up with all fluid changes.

That is awesome to see. I'd be interested to know what the car would dyno after that many miles.
