$13,000 Custom 350Z vs. $33,000 Custom 350Z | HiLow

$13,000 Turbo 350Z built with CHEAP parts vs. $33,000 twin-turbo 350Z built with EXPENSIVE parts. Does more expensive mean more better? We’re gonna find out once and for all.
Donut bought two identical Nissan 350z’s, and for the past few weeks have been modifying them to be FUN, daily drivers that you can take to the track.
Team Low (Nolan Sykes & Aaron Parker) got a bunch of really cheap parts and in the end got a slammed turbo z that shoots flames all for around $13,000.
Team Hi (James Pumphrey & Zach Jobe) on the other hand, got a bunch of really nice expensive stuff totaling an astounding $33,000.
Then we tested them to see which components are actually worth spending the money on. We’re gonna break down the cost of building these two cars, test them head to head on track, and decide which is better.
Low Car got a set of eBay coilovers of unknown origin, and Hi Car was treated to a set of KW V3s.
Next, we installed wheels and tires. Hi Car got some sick Advan RGIII’s wrapped in Bridgestone RE71s. Meanwhile on the Low Car, We bought some XXR 527s, and decided to run Federal RS-RR tires. In the end, both cars were able to achieve supercar-level braking distance by switching to super sticky rubber.
Nolan and Aaron installed more aggressive brake pads, steel braided brake lines, flushed and replaced the brake fluid, and bled the lines. Over on Hi Car, Zach and James replaced the car’s entire braking system with a 6 piston, 13 brake kit from Wilwood.
After that we went inside our Zs, installing racing seats. The Hi Car got two Sparco QRT-R seats, a Greddy steering wheel, and a hub to make it removable. Lo Car received some Corbeau DFXs racing seats.
Next, both cars were fitted with modified differentials to make sick skids easier. Hi Car got a very trick Kaaz 2-way differential. Zach spent a lot of time adjusting the spacing, making sure it was perfect. Over on Lo Car we took a different route. Instead of installing a new differential, we welded ours together!
After making a bunch of performance upgrades, it was time to alter the looks of our beloved Zs. Team Low decided to give Lo Car some plastidip.
Over on team Hi, they took their car to a professional vinyl shop.
Finally, we gave the Donut Zs some BOOST! Hi car got a Jim Wolf twin turbo setup that made it sound like a Baby GTR. And the low car got a single turbo kit by way of eBay.

  • Knowingly nerfing low car with stock injectors is a great shame, a dremel to the stock injector caps, or spending a few bucks on used GTR injectors would have brought the cars side by side on power and it would have reflected in the times.

  • Since you just did V6 FR, some things I would like to see would be: I4 FF (Honda Civic, Acura Integra, Chevy Cobalt, etc) I4 FR (Nissan 240SX, BMW E30, etc) V8 FR (Ford Mustang, Chevy Camaro, etc) I6 FR (BMW E30, Lexus IS300, etc) I4 AWD (VW Golf R, Audi A4, etc) H4 AWD (Subaru WRX) All of the above have wide variations in initial cost and parts cost/quality.
