Who cares wtf kind of engine it is, it works and gets the job done! Why y'all whining like a bunch of damn babies!

The LS is popular for pro drifting because of the torque curves. No need to bang on limiters and risk overheating to stay in the powerband.
Ashton Summers Feb 05, 2013
And the likelihood that the VQ would probably blow up at 800hp.
Byakka Hirakawa Feb 05, 2013
This is a shameful Weve modied a few vq and there not that hard to get to 500-600hp 800 wouldnt be anymore difficult If u want an ls, stick with ur cheves, leave the imports alone

@victor calm down its a drift car of course they wanted to save weight. And the most you can get out of the VQ35 is 730ish-40hp turbo

LS Powa!!!

My friend has an LS3 in his M3 drift car. Great engines.
Victor Pitts Feb 05, 2013
The VQ is an OK engine, but too heavy and not easily tuned like the LS3.

You guys forget that Carol Shelby put a V8 in a British roadster. Don't tell me that's a no no, it's called efficiency. Learn it. I am with my LS1 powered S13 coupe which will weight 150 pounds less than the stock 4 cylinder KA... Efficient.

Using this v8 was a way to save weight and increase power at the same time. It probably also lowered the cente of gravity which makes it a better drifter. That being said I would never put a v8 in a 350z
Taylor Garry Feb 05, 2013
Meh, I wouldn't put a v8 in it
Joao Batta Feb 05, 2013
I dont think you can get more that 500 hp on that engine with some basic mods
Zaire Wilkins Feb 05, 2013
This is a no no
Justin Tucker Feb 05, 2013
I would be more impressed if they used the vq35....

I'd drive it to work and home! Lol
Matt Piccolo Feb 05, 2013
@ jack, Ahah no it wouldn't
Victor Pitts Feb 05, 2013
Fueled racing LS mount kit FTW!
Joao Batta Feb 05, 2013
I wish mine had that power :(

Car is awesome, paint job sucks
Matt Piccolo Feb 05, 2013
Paint job is hideous

Badass 350 right here
Description: But the big question here is what makes a car a drift car over a regular track car? A full explanation is given in the following video. And yes, get ready for some serious tire smoking.

Sounds awesome. I conpletely agree about the open headers
Author Norman R. Colson Feb 06, 2013
Sounds very angry I love it!
Patrick Schalk Feb 06, 2013
No emissions here in Oklahoma. I don't have any cats and am running Long tubes 1 7/8 in to a 3in collector, 3 in y pipe, magnaflow muffler AND I have an electric cutout right before the rear axle. Sounds nasty with open headers
Stephen Tyler Learn Feb 05, 2013
@patrick hooker longtube headers with an x pipe sounds awesome on an ls1. Depends on what emissions you have to pass though.
Patrick Schalk Feb 05, 2013

Robby N Raquel Stanley Feb 05, 2013
