It seems there is truth in the popular internet meme: “LS swap all of the things!” Add an Infiniti G35 to the extensive list of vehicles, and things, that are LS powered. What we have here though is a classic drag race to test how well the swapped G35 does against a supercharged C7 Corvette Stingray.
After a quick clip of the G35 idling, which emits a delightful burble much different than the original V6 it comes with, the G35 faces its rival. The red Stingray lines up against the swapped Infiniti awaiting its ultimate triumph, or its demise.
Unfortunately, the latter remains the case here. It seems it’s a classic case of plenty of power, with no means to transfer it to the pavement. The C7 Stingray hooks and launches with the G35 not finding its stride until a few gears too late. By the time the G35 really grabs hold, the Stingray has left it to a view taillights and smell of exhaust.
Still, we can appreciate an LS swap any day, and the G35 is great looking car regardless. Maybe some stickier tires would benefit this situation. Check out how it unfolds in the video down below.
