Improving on Perfection

How do you improve upon the only engine in the world to appear on Ward's 10-Best Engines list for 12 consecutive years?

Start with a completely redesigned cylinder block with significantly improved rigidity, increase the redline to 7500 rpm, increase fuel efficiency by 10%, throw in continuously variable valve timing control (CVTC) on the intake side and electromagnetic valve timing control (e-VTC) on the exhaust side, decrease friction through application of the world's first hydrogen-free, diamond-like carbon (DLC) coating of internals, add super-ignition iridium spark plugs, and fast light-off O2 sensor control... Whew! That ought to do it!

The new VQ35HR engine will be used in the 2007 G35 Sedan and the 2007 350Z. The G35 Coupe will keep the VQ35DE for the time being, likely being the first recipient of the new 3.7 liter derivation in 2008.

The letters "HR" in VQ35HR and VQ25HR stand for "high revolution" and "high response." Early reports claim and even BETTER exhaust note than the current VQ, and significantly more power...

Other notes:
-- 5th Generation of the VQ motor design
-- Higher compression ratio (10.6: 1 versus previous 10.3:1)
-- Twin knock sensors
-- Improved cooling -- New ram air dual intake, equal length isometric exhaust manifold and
      dual exhaust system with laser-welded rear mufflers

Stay tuned for, brought to you by NICO!
