Sam24th's build log

So about 3 months ago I went car shopping for a new daily driver. After driving a gas guzzling lifted toyota 4runner and toyota pickup for years I oped for a sportier coupe. I ended up looking and buying a Malbec Black 2013 Infiniti G37 IPL from a dealership here in NC. So far I've love every minute of owning it and has been a pleasant change from the lifted rough ride of my toyotas. Anyways after browsing here for 3 months I decided I would make a build thread and log my progress and modifications. So here is my car asI bought it about 3 months ago.

Oh and just a little bit of background on myself, I live in Charlotte, NC. I work as a mechanical design engineer so most things if not all things will be installed and done by yours truly. I also go to UNC Charlotte while working full time for my masters, so spare time for me comes at a premium. My other two vehicles are a 1984 Toyota Pickup truck that has been built into a rock crawler/camping truck and a 1989 4runner that I used to DD but have since retired it to weekend errands and hauling the mountain bike. I am pretty good at my own fabrication work, can weld and own a mill and a decent array of shop tools mostly from working on large equipment and trucks. This will most likely be a slow build but we'll see what happens. I did order somethings recently for blackfriday from Z1 so ill update this as needed.

I have a decent amount of plans for it. Its mostly gonna be a bolt on warrior haha. I plan on doing a strut tower brace, long tube intakes, high flow cats, tune the ecu (I live close to SOHO motorsports), sway bars, tires and wheels. Maybe coilovers to lower it a tiny bit and a front splitter. Possibly some other things later on down the line. First thing is to get new rotors and pads though, as the factory rotors have a bit of chatter in them.

Recently got a used takeda long tube intake for a great price. Just finished install this the other day so thought I'd post this up.

Nice car and great choice on the Takeda intake!

Is your IPL 6mt or 7at?

Also take down that hood liner...first and foremost wont do anything to your paint. But that partially torn liner is driving me nuts.

I'll second removing the hood liner, if only to let out a little more noise.

It's hard to tell from the pics, but is that the midnight black or chrome grille?

Thanks guys, I plan to remove the hoodliner. It bugs me every time I pop the hood lol. I'll do it once my strut tower brace gets here. I forgot I also did install a roof mounted spoiler that I got from the group buy. Real small detail but I like it. Oh and the grill is chrome. I got a black one for it in the shop I bought but just havent had time to install it.

I just picked up a new set of wheels and tires from a buddy of mines. I still like my factory wheels better but this was such a good deal I couldnt pass it up. Tires are michelin pilot sport AS3 285/35/19 and 255/40/19.
