2004 Infiniti G35 Coupe
Engine swap questions

I currently drive a 2004 Infiniti G35 Coupe automatic with 236k miles on it. The car runs great so far. Previous owner kept it clean and maintained it really well. But I wanna start to add performance parts to it and Iím not sure itís a good idea with a car with that many miles on it. So I was wondering if I should just buy a newer engine with less miles on it first? Would really appreciate the suggestions/help.

Unless you're going to add forced induction just run a motor until it smokes or blows up.

Start with the best cost effective gain, plenum spacer, high flow cat, tune.

So if I do decide to add a turbo kit or supercharger just get a new engine?

Not necessarily, you can usually get away with hone+rings+bearings and run an engine hard for 60k miles.

Of course something else might **** the bed but that's always the gamble.

G35 sedan w/ too much money in mods
Andy be aware that the cost of going FI in these cars is lots of money. Unless you can DIY a lot of the work a proper turbo build will set you back over $10K and a supercharger will still be in the $4000-5000 dollar range or more. Are you sure you want to drop that kinda cash into a vehicle that has over $200K miles?
