i've had my x for 8 months and i'm still amazed at how much giddy up it has.

the truck speeds up to 100 mph like it's nothing. good job nissan! (the ~115 mph limiter sorta stinks though)

I got up little past hundred (unkowingly I might add) and got a little nervous going that fast in a tall SUV. Had to get off the gas.

I think the VQ is a pretty good suv motor and a smooth runner at cruise with a decent all around power range, but my enthusiasm for it is been brought down a notch since I bought my 5.7l Tundra.

i think the motor is pretty good, time will tell how good though. It sure beats the 4 banger I was driving before.

Eddo, You have a supercharger but also about 1000 lbs. of additional stuff. I'll take you on in my nearly stock 07 X, just bring it on up here to Atlanta!

Yeah, but that 5.7L is almost 50% larger. I hope it's got more power. :)

I have always been a large engine person. To this day I still believe in the saying "There is no replacement for displacement". I have worked on and rebuilt many large bore engines. Maybe it's because I know them inside and out that I prefer them. However, I am very impressed with the engine in the X. So much so, that I think my next vehicle is going to be a Z (don't worry, I'll still have the X...then I just need to find a Nizzan Y).

I am very impressed with the engine in my G35 6MT. So much so that I ended up buying my X... Get the Z, you'll love it.

regards,
