Beyond the popular two-tone treatment, Andy Wong’s ’05 Infiniti G35 Coupe took a departure from what we typically see around here. Usually, heavy audio builds have no power adders and although this one doesn’t have a twin turbo setup, it does have a supercharger.

The correct stance was achieved using Sprint lowering springs and Tokico D-Spec dampers. The wheels are Avus AF901 measuring 22x9-inch and 22x10.5-inch sizing. The wheels are cloaked in Nexen N3000 tires 245/30R22 with 295/25R22 for added grip all around.

 

Then it was time to spruce up the interior as well as audio and multimedia. The headliner and pillars were recovered in suede by Hector’s interiors. All of the engine vitals are relayed on Auto Meter gauges. But the real story is the audio install...
