Default 350Z get's more power

Geneva preview: More power for 350Z
13 Feb 07 16:07




The new Z has its engine revised to give 313bhp at 6,800rpm and 264lb-ft of torque at 4,800rpm; the maximum engine speed has been increased to 7,500rpm. Further modifications include a dual intake system, improved variable-valve timing, a stiffened crank and an increase in the compression ratio, all adding up to boosted low and mid-range torque, reduced vibration, more efficient ignition and a lower centre of gravity for the engine.

The Z's bonnet has been redesigned to accommodate the new engine, but otherwise, the Z is little changed. There are three new colours on offer - Temper Orange with a green 'flip', Precision Grey and Night Blue - and an optional Frost Grey interior. Active headrests are added to the seats. Deliveries of these new models start in May. article continues below

' bout time.

I'm sure Nissan could have given it much more, but they are keeping their powder dry for the upcoming GT-R.

just for comparison, 313 at the new SAE standards is about 340 of the old one. That's quite a jump from 287

I know that they changed teh way engine HP is measured, but I don't recall any other cars jumping that much in terms of their old versus new rating.

Wait, wait, wait. What are you basing this on? Why did the STI only lose 7 hp then? You may be right, just wondering.

Nice. These cars for 06 were actually quick and about to be quicker. I bet a 0-60 under 5 sec would be attainable with that power. I would still boost one though.

My math may be off.

I was looking at the standard 7% noticed on some models.

For the WRX, it looks like 3%. SO that would make it 322.

1 HP in 2005 is still equal to 1HP in 2007.. they didn't change the amount of power that 1 horsepower stands for.

The difference between the 2005 rating of 287 and the current car's rating with the same engine depends on what methods Nissan was using for testing when they got the 287 number. You know, some cars "gained" a few hp with the SAE standards in place.

Wow, very impressive (especially the 7500 rpm!). I wonder if the G35 coupe is going up by this much. I heard they're holding off on the G35's big power increase until after the GTR.

Well the G35's get this engine for, but dunno if it will be in the same state of ECU tune...I think it is though. At least the G35 sedan gets this motor w/ 313hp...and that 10hp diff is not that much and prolly because the G is a luxury car and doesn't want to be as raw.

I was hoping for some suspension changes to the 350Z too, but oh well..

This engine is the same as in the new G35 (sedan/coupe) known as VQ35HR.

http://g35driver.com/forums/showthread.php?t=136869

That link has more info about dynos and what not, and although SAE standards are odd, the new motors dyno SIGNIFICANTLY higher than the older VQ. Even with a higher rev limit, the HR makes all of its new power before the old rev limit.
