    I'd take a NA S2000

    since i am a fan of the VQ35DE i will go with the 350Z
    however
    the s2000 is better balanced and better handling. it also is a wonderful (yet old) piece of technology.
    s2000 is more expensive to mod. 350 is easier to. many arguments here. also why turbo a 350 when you can get a GTR?

    turbo Z... i dont think a turbo is in the future for the G, but it would be a lot of fun.

    coolieman1220, which GTR are u speaking of? the 08 or the R34 etc?i dont think most ppl can afford the 08 GTR.might hav to settle for something cheaper like a 350Z.also, i like the small size of those two cars. luv a good power to weight ratio.

    im speaking of the R35 GTR. Godzilla. that car, all the hype. you see if you twin turbo a 350, you run into problems. you can't just turbo it you have to mess with every aspect of the car to do it right and even still it won't be fully reliable as if it came turboed.

    they may not be light but take power easy. also they seem to be pretty well balanced which helps cornering. of course lightweight is the best of both worlds.

    not if you do it properly and use the APS kit..

    a Z is not a light car. its actually stupidly heavy. the G35 is even worse.

    if you want a lightweight, then the S2K is the way to go. stock they have enough power to get you in trouble, and so little grip that when the rears lose it, you have no control. i have seen more of them spin autoxng than any other type of car, mr2s included.

    Twin turbo Enzo.



    Seriously speaking get a last gen STi or an older 200/240SX and play around with that. A 350Z is not light.

    200sx, depending on model is like 2700 lbs.
    350z is about 3200 lbs.

    That's like a 1 million dollar difference in blow. Or 2-5 hookers.
