Maintaining this build thread to try to help others with their G37x's. Been through a lot of set-ups and issues to get where I am at now. Thanks for looking and hope it helps.

Here's a couple shots fresh stock, no mods.

Could not modify the G too much in the beginning due to living in North Dakota and the weather being less than car friendly during winter. I decided to lower it and get some Fast Intentions Resonated Test Pipes to begin with (as well as some tint)

After that I was able to get a hold of the OEM Midnight Grille, some R2C Intakes, and a BB Grounding Kit

I thought I may be done after that, but I was addicted!

BTW - Feel free to give recommendations (it's always a work in progress)

Thanks everyone, I'm excited to drop more into it.

ShyAznB8oi, it's dropped on Eibach PK right now, but I may rock coilovers sometime soon.
