    i had a go a few weeks ago againts a black one with a body kit on it i would not say i left him but the turbo was a big advantage

    its a heavy car i think and dont think they are easy to map or tune greatly

                350's are re-mappable but only slightly, plus it's a very new thing.

                The ECU is a little tricky, it alters the air and fuelling back to standard parameters regardless of what you've modified. Only very early JDM's were un-affected by the tricky ECU.

                With a re-map you'll gain maybe 8bhp but it's more about the mid-range push that's improved.

                    They produce circa 270-275lb.ft, they fairly torquey.

                      fought it was 265lb? 280bhp on earlier models isnt it. so simlar in power to mine now.
                      better handling?
                      going to put mine up for sale maybe just a pain with the private plate.

                        If you go by Wikipedia;

                        The VQ35DE produces 287bhp and 274lb.ft

                        The VQ35DE Rev-Up produces 300bhp and 260lb.ft

                        The VQ35HR prodcues 306bhp and 288lb.ft

                        Very good handling. Next to no body roll, grips the road very very well (depending on tyre choice). Brakes are very good.

                        This is all of course, in my opinion.

                            They take a little getting used to.

                            The clutch requires some skill for smooth operation and the manual gearbox is heavy so can become quite tiring 'if you're not in the mood' for it.
