The G35 Engine was the third generation of the Infiniti G, and it came out in 2001. The previous generations of G models were RWD, but this one had a drivetrain similar to the Nissan Z. It was also a sedan and a coupe.
The G35 was designed by Hiroshi Hasegawa at Nissan, and he designed both the sedan (frozen in 1998) and coupé (finalized in late 2000). He also worked on some other cars like the Nissan XVL Concept sports sedan in October 1999 at the Tokyo Motor Show and Infiniti XVL Concept in January 2000 at the NAIAS.
G35 Engine’s Awesome Power !
The VQ35 engine in the Infiniti G35 has a lot of power, but it’s not just about the horsepower or torque numbers. You see, it’s all about how you can use that power.
The 2007 Infiniti G35 saw the most drastic change in the engine setup. Coupes retained the standard VQ35DE with a power upgrade to 293 horsepower and 258 lb.-ft. of torque. However, sedans received a new 3.5-liter V6 engine with a 24-valve design and a dual overhead camshaft (DOHC) setup that produced 306 horsepower and 269 lb.-ft. of torque. The change improved fuel efficiency by eight percent compared to its predecessor, which was rated at 18 mpg city/25 mpg highway for 2007 models with automatic transmission and 17 mpg city/24 mpg highway for manual transmission models.
The G35 also received a few other changes for 2007, including an updated front fascia that included fog lights on all models except base S models; revised rear tail lamps; and new wheels for coupes and sedans. Coupes also gained rear disc brakes while both body styles gained a new steering wheel design with integrated cruise control buttons on the steering wheel hub.
The 2008 G35 sedan saw an optional Sport Package that included larger 19-inch wheels, Brembo brakes, sportier suspension tuning and unique bodywork.
Is the G35 Engine Reliable?
The Infiniti G35 Engine is a sports car that’s been around for a while. It was first introduced in 2001, and has been a popular choice among those looking for a performance vehicle.
If you’re looking to buy one of these, you probably want to know what kind of engine it has and what kind of reliability issues you should expect. We’ll go over that here.
The Infiniti G35 comes with either an Infinity VQ35DE or VQ35HR engine. Both are 3.5-liter V6 engines, but they have different power outputs: 240 horsepower for the VQ35DE and 280 horsepower for the VQ35HR.
The VQ35 engine is a stout and reliable powerplant that will get you where you need to be reliably. However, no engine or vehicle is without faults.
VQ35 engines can sometimes be prone to overheating in extreme temperatures, which can lead to damage and eventual failure of the vehicle’s cooling system. This is especially true when the vehicle is being used in an environment where it’s exposed to high heat for extended periods of time.
The most prominent issue with VQ35 engines, especially in the case of Rev-up engines, is oil consumption. Though there is no real fix for this issue, it is not necessarily a problem and will not hinder the performance of your engine.
The problem stems from the fact that these engines are designed to operate at high temperatures. However, this can cause excessive oil consumption because it causes degradation in the viscosity of oils and other fluids used in the engine.
There are some things you can do to prevent excessive oil consumption:
- Use synthetic oil instead of regular oil (this will increase its lifespan)
- Make sure that your coolant level is at optimal levels (not too low or too high)
How Can I Boost My G35 Engine ?
The Infiniti G35 is one of the best-loved cars from the 2000s. With its sleek design, powerful engine and affordable price tag, it has been a favorite for many. The G35 was praised for its great performance figures and relatively affordable price tag when it was first released.
While it’s true that the engine in a G35 is known to be very strong and reliable, making it easy to tune, there are still some things you can do to get more power out of your car. One of the easiest things that you can do to get more power out of your G35 is install a different tune on it. Tuning a G35 can change the timing and amount of fuel, usually with a simple tune you should be able to get an additional 20 to 40 horsepower out of the car.
If you want to make more modifications you can do simple things such as a new intake and exhaust system. These typically will improve throttle response and make your car sound sportier (and better!) with its new exhaust tone. If you want to start doing heavy modifications there are turbo kits available that add upwards of 100 horsepower to your G35… but they also reduce reliability substantially!
