Default What do i need?

Hey guys,

My plan for this spring/summer is to break into the 13's in the 1/4.
What mods do you guys think ill need to reach my goal?? Right now i am stock and ran a [email protected] in 40 deg. temps. I know im capable of 14.3-14.4 in ideal conditions. So what bolt-ons do i need to help me get that 13.9?? Thanks for your help

Crawford Headers
Craword Plenum
Straight pipes
Y-Pipe
ECU Reflash

That should put you somewhere in the 13's

if you want more power do Cams

Thanks for the quick replies guys.

I really don't want to get too carried away with mods. I had a WRX that i modded pretty heavy and got nothing but grief from it. Apparently there are stock G35 sedans running high 13's so i know it shoudn't take too many mods for me to hit that 13.9 mark.
I was thinking maybe a Z tube, popcharger, and plenum would do the trick. What do you think?

1st thing it to get rid of exhuast
IMO you should get about 20 ponies out of a free flowing exhaust with test pipes. 20 more with headers and 20 more with the plenum

or just get a wet shot of nos

Make certain to get at least midget V4. The others have cracks

Maybe a camber kit to dial it out? I've heard the negative camber in the G35/350Z makes it hard to get a good launch.

Might not get you much, but it could help.

Well my best time was [email protected] It was 40 degrees outside and couldn't grip at all that night. So the 14.6 i got was just mashing the pedal in MM mode. So i really haven't had a chance to really launch my car yet. So you think a camber kit will help a little?? thats interesting... ill have to look into that a little.

I've ran 13.8s pretty consistently with my current setup (different exhaust and no headers though) and 16" drag slicks from a Mustang (they sucked but they're better than any street tire still) - I had 1.8sec 60' times with high 101mph trap speeds...

That was when it was 90+ degrees in August/Sept. though!

After headers, new exhaust and better slicks I'm pretty sure I could get close to 13.6...
