What really goes into a project build?
In this new multi-part series, Haute AG will cover some of the ins and outs of tackling a project build. Whether it’s your first car and you’re looking to make some minor changes or you want to build a full street slaying/track ready car, we will show you some of the planning, preparation, and physical work it takes to become a reality.
We will be referencing one of our project vehicles throughout these blogs, which happens to be a 2006 Infiniti G35 Coupe. However, all of these principles can be applied to any vehicle. Performance is one thing, and we’re just as much about big numbers here at Haute AG, but functionality and how a car behaves on the street is another. This car is intended to be drive-able on and off the track, so we will display options and parts that allow this to be possible. Please feel free to provide feedback, or contact any of our technicians with questions. We will be more than happy to answer them!
In this build, a full motor swap will be covered, along with building an engine and what it takes to “refresh” a motor. We will be putting a Chevrolet 6.0L iron block into the car, with some go fast goodies of course, along with converting/adapting the stock 6 speed transmission (CD009) to mate to the LS motor. We will also cover clutch options and how to choose what’s right for your setup, fuel system modifications, suspension, and brakes. Then we’ll check in with our partners at Unobtainium Welding towards the end of the build, and display some of their amazing custom handy work as they let the V8 beast breathe smoothly.
Stay tuned for updates on this, and some of our other builds!
