I'm a HUGE Vic fan but I won't pretend the 4.6 is a cheap or easy engine to mod, it's expensive as hell to squeeze a little more power out of it. It's bulletproof, I mean it's literally been shot at more than maybe any other engine, it'll last while everything else on a Vic falls apart, but it is one of the slowest V8s.

Not sure about the US but in the EU cops can ask for a surprise emissions test if they catch your cars puffing smoke. And the fuel consumption issues are even worse here due to higher gas prices/

Just tell him that you want the carb rebuilt or changed out with a Weber DGEV 32/36, with the Weber you may see a HP increase but fuel mileage will suffer as this was the case when I went Weber after I threw in the towel trying to rebuild the hopelessly complex Hitachi carb on my 'roo.

I had a trike when I was about 4. My mom never let me go outside (she was too lazy to watch over me), so I did laps around the garage with very little space (she was even too lazy to park the fucking car outside while I was on my trike). Dad was at work all day.

You can, but like everything else in life, there are varying degrees of preciousness and varying degrees of trust and varying degrees of basic care.

For instance, I can leave my dog with my girlfriend for a day because these three variables fall into the correct range.

>gf trust: 85/100
>gf carefulness: 60/100

>dog preciousness: 80/100, trust - preciousness = 5
>carefulness required to keep dog alive: 30/100

But if you're asking me, if I had my kidneys removed and I had to keep them on ice for a day before they could be re-implanted, I would definitely not do that because those variables are way out of line.

>kidney preciousness: 100/100, diff = -15
>carefulness needed for kidney, 100/100, diff = -40

Lazy manlet detected. What, you realized its known people buy pickups and don't use them, so you thought you'd get a van and trick people? My van is filled with pipes, a ladder, fittings, supports, etc. You can't "walk around in it" you poser. Unless you're a 4' tall Mexican which is also possible since you like a 20 year old van thats been passed around more than your mother in the 1990s.

>Are you satisfied?
Yeah, glad I didn’t spend 4 grand more for a Z with the same miles. I’m 6’1 and the “Rwd Japanese cars have no interior room!!” Is a meme. Cozy interior that was loaded for the time with heated seats cruse control sunroof power mirror adjusters etc.

The g35 sedan wears different tires from the 350z and g35 coupe.
You can’t rotate the tires on a G35 coupe, you can on the sedan.

The pros are: 350z engine, transmission, rear end And exhaust note(Even stock with the windows up you always hear the VQ, it’s not a quiet motor(can be a con)
More interior space. I have the sedan and load up the back with people occasionally and they never complain for space or comfort. I sit in the back when I’m detailing the car, the sedan is surprisingly spacious. I don’t think I even fit in the back of the coupe though, again I’m 6,1 but could not fit in my buddies g37 coupe back seat without breaking my neck

Cons:Is a 350z + a few hundred pounds
A 350z can take corners a few miles per hour faster then a G, but you can get the G track ready with parts from a z that bolt right on lol. But even in its stock form the G35 coupe and sedan corner impressively well, best in class when new,bmw,Acura,Lexus,Audi, no one could touch the G35s performance for the price point for the longest time. Expect G35s to get expensive soon(they already sell for more than they’re worth)

Also, this should go without saying, but the later model year G35 you can get the better. A 2006 makes more power than a 2003 for example. The most reliable g35 is probably going to be the newest model year you can afford. Look for 07+ g35s they got the updated interior and he high rev 3.5 that has like 30 hp over a regular 3.5 and can rev to like 8,200 rpm. The high rev is the ultimate trombone
>>
>>22616539
>>22616643
G35 coupes can’t rotate tires.(same like the 350?)

The sedans can rotate tires.

This is where the tire memes come from and yes it’s stupid that you need to buy tires twice as often for the coupe over the sedan.

This alone was enough to get the 4 door for me
>>
>>22617042
The HR makes more hp than the DE.
This is at the cost of tourq, the DE makes more tourq but is still slower on paper according to nissan.

On the VQ fourms though you have people arguing that thier high rev feels slower then the DE from the lost tourq.

Also the HR has valve timing and the DE does not. I know what version engine id rather take apart

>>
>>22616856
So break it down for a retard like me, what exactly are the drawbacks of say a 60 or 90 V6 at 3l, as opposed to a 3l I6 in relation to balance.
>>
>>22616823
From what I've seen they're entirely talking about the engine's ability to take internal forces which doesn't much relate to how much it will bend if you attach a load to the end.
>>
>>22617976
So if you have a block which is more structurally rigid and has more clearance between cylinder bores, how is the opposing block stronger simply because it's inline?
>>
>>22605940

The advantage is that my 30 year old I6 will run until the heat death of the universe and an V6 or I4 running diesel is a joke for reliability and longevity, not to mention power output.
