Hi new to the site I have been lurking for awhile but finally decided to join, I currently am a member on several other automotive sites and have over 5,000posts on G35driver and over 2,000 on my350z so I do spent alot of time on forums :eek:.

Anyway I am from Alberta Canada and split my time between my home in Sylvan Lake on the weekends and I work and live downtown Calgary during the week.


I went to buy a 2007 WK1 last saturday but it was sold when I got there :mad: so I am currently keeping my eyes open for another one so it is a matter of time until I find my next project. After having the one last week scooped on me I have had my heart broke and slowed my search a bit :cry: now I am looking more towards the spring to pick one up.

Anyway a little bit about my car history:

The previous vehicles I have modified are
I had a 1987 chev short box with the body all smoothed and a 3stage paint job the engine was an LT1 out of a vette with lots of Edlbrock goodies on it.

A 1987 Mustang 5.0LX with some mild mods

Then i had a new 1997 Jeep Grand Cherokee 5.2L pretty stock some minor apperence mods but I have always loved that unit.

a 1994 Mustang V6 auto that I swapped a 5.0L and a 5 speed into and Supercharged it. i bought it when I was 19 and did the engine swap/SC in my early to mid 20s in the late 90s.





I then moved on to a convertable 2.4L NA Mitsubishi eclipse that was green with tan interior and top. I changed the interior to grey and painted it a 3 stage orange paint and then turboed the NA engine....I did have lowering springs but no pictures with them on :eek:





At the same time I had a 1998 Chev Blazer for a daily.





For the past 5 years I have been a Nissan guy, My wife drives an Altima SE-R, my Daily is a 2010 Titan CC 4x4 Pictured is my 2008 Titan (i have had 4 Titans now)



My current Titan

And last but hopefully not least my 2003 Infiniti G35, it has twin GT-30 turbos and a forged internal 3.8L. Last trip to the dyno with a 3.5L it made 589whp/609ftlbs in the spring when I get the tune on the 3.8L it should make in the 800whp range before the turbos become strung out :cool: I have done virtually all of the work on it myself from the wire tuck to polishing all of the aluminum buy hand to swapping engines and suspention work. I left the engine build and the tuning to the pros but every other nut and bolt was touched by my hands, I don't expect it to be a big hit on this web site but I hope you guys can appreciate the work that went into it.

So that is me and my story, I hope to find an SRT8 Jeep in the near future and add some sort of FI and have a quick fun Daily driver. Looking forward to learning more about SRT Jeeps and extracting more power from them :D As well as meeting with Local SRT Jeep owners, I have come across a few while lurking hopefully I can pick up a Jeep soon and become a part of the club:)

Sorry for the long first post....

Thanks for the welcome guys.


Sweet rides! What do you need so many Titans for? I'm going to assume work vehicles..lol

Too bad about the Wk attempt, it's only matter of time before you find the right one bud! Good luck and welcome to the crew.

Ya work trucks, I am now an office guys so an SUV will work for me now.

That G35 looks mean!

Welcome to the forum and good luck finding yourself a Jeep. Lots on Kijiji the last time I checked.

Thanks I would like to check out your, Maggie that is the route I think I will go.

Welcome to the forum, there is lots of good info on here.
Looks like you have nice mod list as well, do you guys ever get together? I would like to see some of the mods you guys have done.

We did a run out to Canmore and another one out to the Bragg Creek area in 2010. Lots of fun! Sadly, we didn't do any last year.

I did the install on my Maggie last spring. Took me a weekend and it's been trouble free so far. Based on your experience, you could probably slap one on in an evening. :lol:

Have you had it on a Dyno yet? A weekend is good for install time, I am turbo guy but the Maggie appeals to me, I have a friend in Edmonton with an STS kit on his jeep but I am leaning to the magnason. I promised myself lower it wheels a SC and some supporting mods. I don't want it to turn into the 5year big dollar project my car became. :eek:
