Everything you said is true for the most part terrasmak, minus you questioning my integrity and your opinions on a solid fixed price. Of course there is pretty much no way of getting around the price of a quality turbo and components, and also quality internals, but the labor and tuning is where a lot of people get screwed. Going custom on all the other stuff if you know/find the right people is the best route (even better if you can do some of the work yourself.) You don't have to throw down money for one of the main complete kits most people are running. You can frankenstein a different turbo if you know the right people to help out with tuning and you're willing to deal with the headache of trying to fit a turbo system in the engine bay (if that's where you're putting it.) Shopping around is the best route when you're paying to have anything done, but not all areas have a wide selection if you're looking to get something special done. When I had my 350z, I lived in southern CA which is the heart of the aftermarket industry, you didn't have to look far to find a shop that had experience doing turbo jobs on Zs, and the fluctuation in prices from shop to shop was absurd. I decided not to go turbo on my 350z since it was my DD and I was already happy with the level of power I had with every bolt-on possible. I beat the crap out of that car bouncing off the rev limiter drifting around, I knew that once I went FI, I wouldn't feel safe abusing it.
As for the wing, it's a bit too tokyo drift for my taste. It's obvious you've built your car for speed and it's functional, but I would have gone with something else. I like the Nismo 350z and GT-R style of wings better on Zs.
