2006 350GT Modifications query

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Hey guys first time poster,

For the past few months I had picked up a 2006 350gt Type SP and i have enjoyed it so far and loving the performance.

What I've done since I got the car

  • Replaced all internal bulbs ( as when I got it all of them were missing )
  • Tinted the taillights ( Image attached before and after )
  • Fixed the left rear window as It wouldn't go down ( replaced window regulator as quite common issue on these car )
  • Fixed the reverse camera as it wouldn't come in at all ( took me ages going through forum post, turned out that someone unplugged the camera connector cable on the left side of the boot )
  •  Regassed the hood struts as it wouldn't stay up 

I have been lurking this forum a lot and was wanting to do a bit of mods to the car to increase performance and sound.

I think base HP for this model is 305-315

The engine in this is a VQ35HR where's many posts suggest they are in 2007+ cars which is weird.

I have a list of mods/parts but was wanting to ask you guys if im going down the right track in terms of this as im not a mechanic but wanted to learn on how to install these things for further knowledge etc.

Using the Conceptz website has a chart for compatible for the car etc which starts with 2007 and was unsure if these parts will fit with my car.

Any suggestions would be appreciated or parts to add etc or just some general advise

It is a V36 sedan, which started mid 2006, the V36 coupe didn't come out until 2007.  So anything that suits the V36 (2007+ G35) should be ok.

just keep in mind the G35 is LHD, the V36 is RHD, all of the items you listed above should be fine, but if you start looking at headlights or headers, you can run into trouble.

Nice car mate 👌 I have a 2007 that I have done a fair bit to so if you have any questions shoot me a message

 

I used to have the gen 3 intakes. They look & sound nice but keep in mind you’ll get the same performance benefit from high performance drop in filters for half the cost.

 

Looks like you’re pricing is in usd as well & shipping from the US is an absolute outrage at the moment.  gktech in Australia have just released a long tube intake so it may be more economical to buy from there.

 

I'd be keen to hear your feedback on the English conversion as well 👍 It’s a good price but I’ve heard it only converts the menu’s & you won’t have working maps but not too certain. 
 

Looks like you have a great base there for an awesome build. Good luck down the rabbit hole man 😁
