Best turbo kit for G35 - daily driver

In everyone's opinion what is the best kit that is also the least "hard" on the reliability aspect of the entire car (engine, tranny, etc)? I'd like more power but don't know much about cars and don't want the thing failing on me from my lust for power. Would a supercharger be a better bet than a turbo?

greddy tt is a fantastic daily driver!

turbo failures are non-existant for the Greddy Kit.

Turbonetics has had alot of smoking turbo issues along with cracked piping.

Vortech is recently having alot of blower bearing issues.

When you stick a turbo or a SC on a N/A car . You would be very lucky indeed if it never had any issues . Expect the worst and hope for the best . Odds are though, the worst is going to happen .

i think what a lot of the guys have said is very true, when you put a FI system on a car that wasn't really designed for it, there is a good chance that things can and sometimes do go wrong. what is crucial for minimizing these problems is finding the right shop that will stand behind their work, there is tons of info in the FI section on my350z.com but depending on where you are located finding a shop that is relatively close to you is key. good luck

I hear you guys saying that the engine wasn't designed for FI but isn't this really the same engine Nissan has been using for the last 11 years (won Ward's Auto World's Best Engines 11 years running, since its inception), and was used in the 300ZX twin turbo? Obviously there have been modifications over that time, but isn't it still the same basic engine?

The nissan engine isnt the issue if u are running small amounts of boost. The aftermarket FI parts are the problems and are not as reliable as oem parts therefore they will break down faster.

OK - no matter what, at some point you will have issues when FI is setup. There are others here that have gone 45K+ miles on their FI's ca without SAID issues. Once you increase the torque and atmospheric pressure load on the engine, trans, driveline, and even the suspension, things will wear faster and generally get hotter as well. the extend of issues - well that depends on the build and how you drive it. Results are very different for everyone. I don't think I've heard of two people having identical issues with their setups.

re: Nissan motor - Twin turbo 300Z - these are not the same engines - at all. Those engines are made for turbo's - lower compression and stronger bottom ends - to start. The beauty of those cars is that you can upgrade turbo's and get pretty ridiculous power on the stock motor. Make no mistake - they are special builds.

I would say if you have the money.... a turbo, if done correctly. It's gonna cost you a lot of $$$$$ though. Of the turbo kits on the market I've heard people being the happiest with the Greddy kit, but there are several add-ons you'll need to make it complete. JWT TT kit is probably just as good, but I don't think too many people have it yet so it's difficult to tell. I've been thinking of going either turbo or sc, but I think if I decide to go turbo I would build the engine when the kit is initially installed.

No. We have Nissan's aluminum VQ35. 1st introduced in 1995 as the VQ30

The TT 300z used an iron block version of Nissan VG30 series. VG30DETT

best put. I have the vortech s/c and have about 50k on the blower w/ finally some issues. minor issues are new belts, on. one crcked and the other cog belt snapped. but for the most part the VQ is pretty realiable for boost. but you will have some maint.... good luck brotha

If I get another G, I will prob turbo it, but it wont be for DD. I wouldnt want a car that has had a turbo put on it as a DD, because there are just too many things that can break from the extra power.
