    so what's a better engine? For what the VQ is, it's a pretty damn good engine being that it is used in everything from trucks, to sedans, to sports cars...

    I don't see Chevy putting the LS1 in everything humanely possible, so it must not be that great.

    I don't see GM putting the LS6 in everything humanely possible, so it must not be that great.

    I don't see Ford putting the DOHC 4.6 in everything humanely possible, so it must not be that great.

    GM doesn't even make GNs or their engines anymore.

    HOWEVER, the VQ is in every Nissan vehicle it can fit in, including all their racing vehicles. The VQ makes everything from 230hp to over 400hp in its different levels of tune.

    I DO see automatic 04 Maximas beating the supposedly faster Supercharged Grand Prix in the 1/4 mile.

    I DO see a very bright future for the VQ.

    It's not God, but sure as hell is one of the top 6 cylinders out there, along with the J32A3.

    Don't give Honda the satisfaction of having their name mentioned with greatness.

    the LS6 is reserved for the Z06. of course gm aint gonna put it in some crappy ass cavalier or the like. the ls1 is in the gto. thats good enough. does gm even have another 2 door car thats rwd? besides the vette...

    nissan sucks my balls, end of story. you nissan fuckers are some of the dumbest fucks ive ever had to deal with. i had one of you douchebags tell me that a STOCK maxima could hang with a z06 with a 75 shot.

    its not my fault that nissan is too damn cheap to develop different types of motors for their different cars. get the fuck off their cock, nissan blows.

    LS1/LS6 are all the same family of GenIII small block V8, and they are used extensively. Basicly when you buy anything with a 5.3,5.7, or 6.0ltr GM V8, it's the same engine.

    the engine code used for the GNs 3.8ltr turbo is LC2

    VQ engines are used because it's cheap to produce one basic engine, and variations of it, rather than a whole bunch of seperate engines. It doesn't make a a better engine, it just makes more economical sense. That said the VQ is a great engine, very versitile, and well designed. It's NOT gods engine though.

    Also I've yet to see any maxima's best the supercharged grand prix, unless it was driver error on the part of the grand prix. TO that I've seen a stock RSX beat a slightly modded, 02 Corvette, that doesn't make the RSX faster does it? No! It makes the driver of the Corvette look like an idiot though.

    The Nissan 3.5-litre VQ V6 engine has been named to the annual "Ward's Ten Best Engines" list for the 10th straight year by Ward's Communications, Inc. It is the only engine that has been part of the list every year the award has been presented.

    Why waste money developing half a dozen different engines when you can develop one that does everything right? :dunno:

    perfection? give me a fucking break. those motors suck. your twin turbo kits cant even make 400rwhp out of them!!!!

    buy twin turbos for an ls1 and you have 600rwhp on low boost. heads/cam that and look the hell out you got a 9 second car.

    And if you think the VQ isn't advanced, you don't know much about the VQ at all. It has evolved over the years. It's available in many different displacements from 2.5 to 4 liters. You can get it turboed or N/A. You can get it with direct injection. You can get it in FWD, RWD, or AWD.

    A lot of companies could learn a lesson from the VQ.
