Hi,
Thank you for clicking on my page. I am currently looking at getting a 350z and modding it out. I would really like to be able to twin-turbo it and put in a nitrous system. I really want a car that has about 450 to 500hp before boost. I have watched lots of youtube videos about 350z's and other people build but I am really looking for someone experienced to help me out. I do have a budget but I am going to do what it takes to make my dream car. any advice would be greatly appreciated, even if it's just sharing your build so I can see how other people have done it and can ask questions about it.

you can reach out to me on the forum or on discord (Fastlane#8673)

Welcome- but if you're looking for a car that has "450-500hp before boost" you'll need to look elsewhere. The 350Z has never had that type of power stock, but are still extremely fast with superior handling and braking. The Z remains my dream car, but I've gotta ask: what exactly is your budget?

about 15k for performance and about 5k on the exterior. i don't want to keep the car stock i just can't do an engine swap. i am choosing this car for its looks and raw power while still being under 10k.

Unfortunately, $15K won't get a reliable 450-500 HP even with FI. If you're not able to do an engine swap, you won't reach your goals for that budget. Not sure what you are choosing for under $10K either??

I did some research and i am considering looking at doing an engine swap. What Engine would you recommend? Getting a 350z cost less than 10k and i am going to sell my current car for about 8k so i am trying to work around that range for the car. i really just want a powerful car that looks awsome. i am a teenanger rn so its going to be a project car that i work on. i saw a couple of powerful engines around 8k for about 500hp but not sure if its compatible.

Do more research before you start on any kind of project car. But as a teenager, have you considered developing and improving your own driving skills before trying to modify a Z? It's already a powerful RWD car that looks great with handling and braking to match. Whether you spend part of your budget to go to a professional race school, or spend a year autocrossing or time trials, you'll develop the skills, instincts and reflexes that go with keeping a powerful sportscar on the road. Even better, those skills go with you to whatever car you have in the future, and allow you to learn what the Z is all about before you start to modify it.
