Got bored today so I decided to compare both Toyota and Nissans's new 3.5L V6's..
both look good
the Nissan will be better for boost
because it has stronger internals or just because it has lower compression?
No lsx no care
I'm a big fan of direct injection. I also dislike high revving motors (although the differences here is minimal). I think I would be happier with the toyota. However, I don't want to drive anything with either one of these name plates for the prices they are asking.
I base that purely on the compression ratio
Is that toyota engine the IS/GS 350's engine?
As a side note Nissans VQ37HR (3.7L) going in the new G37 coupe makes 330HP and 270TQ with a broader torque curve. It also features Nissans new VVEL (Variable Valve Event and Lift) which is similar to BMW's valvetronic system, but is more effecient, much simpler and lighter in design.
yes... and the VQ35HR is in the 07+ 350Z/G35...
I test drove both, the 07 G35 felt really jerky (unrefined) when u hit the gas pedal, but the IS350 felt really muted when u floor it.
So I ended up getting a 335, N54 twin turbo ftmfw.
If you have the money to then the BMW 335 > both the Infiniti and Lexus. But if your budget is around $35K its hard to beat the G35...
