So should we get a refund of our purchase price from Nissian for the loss?lj1983 said:they first put out the VQ40 before the companies started switching over to the new testing..so it was 'grandfathered' in. nissan has finally gotten around to re-testing it. we mentioned this earlier, when those specs came out for the 07 frontier
still a 4 hp and a 3 lbft loss isn't bad, considering what some hondas and toyotas lost in the new test.
I look at it this way - my Xterra, which is a 2006, still has 265 hp, because that is what my manual says. The 2007 was tested under a different set of rules, so be it. but, that didn't change the rules that 2005 and 2006 models were test under, so nothing changed for them.Onix said:Just picked up a new catalog on the new 2007 X and it said it has 261hp not 265 nice. have my 05 catalog and it says 265 nice
I understand that, but in black and white the 2005 & 2006 are still 265 hp. If they make this change apply to these models, then they owe me some money!Robb_D said:Nothing changed for any of them, just a different testing method. if you tested a 2007 X under the previous method it'd still say 265. SAE has changed the format. So an 05 or 06 X under the new format would read 261... there is no difference other then a number you read.
Also, you'd probably never notice 4hp... maybe 10, although still mostly unlikely, as the gearing that goes with it has alot to do with the sensation of power.
