Daniel's 2006 Nissan 350Z

Build

Editor’s note:Daniel Spielman has a garage full of enthusiast vehicles, including a 2016 Subaru WRX STI and a 2018 BMW M3. However, his Nissan 350Z was the vehicle that got him hooked up with Team Hybrid.

From a young age, I've been obsessed with cars, and I've wanted the 350Z since they showed off the concept car at the LA Auto Show. I purchased my car new, off the lot, in 2007. When I started building my Z, I realized I needed help with the direction of the build, as well as some connections in the industry. I started researching prominent car clubs, and I got hooked up with Team Hybrid.

For this car, I’ve taken a lot of inspiration and advice from my team and friends with the same car. I’ve modified all aspects of the vehicle: motor, forced induction, suspension, body kit, etc. At one point, I had three different turbo kits because I couldn’t decide what type of power I wanted to make with the car. I’m currently riding on BFGoodrich® g-Force Sport COMP-2s (265/35/19 in the front & 285/35/19 rear) because I wanted the best performance rubber available for the street.

There’s always room for improvement, but the reactions to my car have been positive all around. I still need a tune for flex fuel, plus upgrade the fuel pump. I also want to work on adding more to the interior.

After doing all the work on this car, I just love pressing on the gas and feeling the power from the turbos. Nothing compares.

I’d love to thank my father, who recently passed away, for all his support and encouraging my passion for cars. I probably would have given up on building this car if it wasn’t for him. I’d also like to thank Team Hybrid, without which I wouldn’t have been able to accomplish my goals for the car. Specifically, I’d like to thank our founder and president James Lin, the Hybrid management/family for their guidance and leadership the past 9 years I've been a member, plus being such a positive influence on the import tuner community, and the beautiful Hybrid Hunnyz. Lastly, plenty of Hybrid Luv to our team title sponsors: BFGoodrich Tires, Meguiar's, K&N Filters, AMSOIL, Whiteline, Password:JDM, NRG Innovations, Mishimoto and Optima Batteries. If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go with a legendary team.
