I had an 03 after my 08 g37s. Long tubes, intake spacer, intake, Borla, ported manifolds, big sound system, 6spd, 18x10 with 275’s on all four corners. It was so much fun to fling into corners and rotate the rear around on exit. I had an LS swap planned out until we found out we were pregnant. I tried to figure out a way to keep it but couldn’t. I’ll be watching this build for sure.

Was the blown engine from the turbos? Custom tune?

blown engine is from a 20y old being 20.. bought turbos for this build.

was originally gonna rebuild a nissan engine but its like $9k!!!

so saturday were pickin up a 5.3 locally... he wants to mock it up to figure out turbos as he doesnt have the engine to trans adapter. since xmas is coming so much is going on sale so over the next month he should be able to start ordering parts on sale.

Hadn’t heard of them. I was going to go with the sikky kit when I was looking at it. TSP is a solid cam chance.
