So I have a 2008 G35x 5at. I've been doing a lot of research, and have plans in the future to throw all my money at my G and get some serious power. I'm getting a good idea of what I need to make a safe and reliable build, but I'm just now realizing that all these great builds are rarely done on an 5at, and definitely not on a AWD. I've only read of one 500+ hp build on an all wheel drive.
So question is: if I have big plans, should I ditch this car? I've put a couple thousand into the car with an exhaust, an intake and things like that and some aftermarket body parts. I've prepared everything to paint the car in the spring, so I've also put money into that. I was planning on saving up for a couple of years and then start by building the engine. Should I save my money, sell the car, and then buy a G with rwd and possibly the 6mt? Or can I get a good 500+ build on my car?
Any info would be appreciated, especially those with a v36 X 5at
