I agree with jr's3800

Im no Nissan fan, I know my cars older and it isnt a fair comparison but it would be nice to make it a little "fairer" right? Im not trying to have the fastest car ever but when people fabricate intakes for Geo trackers then why not make your Bonny a little faster you know.

I still believe the advantage goes to the american side. I mean parts overall are cheaper for our low revving pushrod engines and when something happens to break we dont have to take a 2nd loan out on our homes to pay for the repairs, and finally for the most part our engines achieve better gas mileage then those high winding rice boxes. Ive seen those nissan engines break, and it isnt cheap specifically the 2.5 I-4 and the 3.5 v-6. I think the 3.0 was a better engine for them.

OMG, I think we'd get along just fine...LMAO

Yeah I have seen timming chain tensioners break, I have seen a few head gaskets go out.... Boy oh boy when they break they are a disaster to repair.... When that happens you might just as well replace the engine or go with a full rebuild because by the time you get the head off there is pretty much nothing left except the block... The oil pan, oil pan spacer, and the front of the engine has to go... Its crazy...

And I agree I feel the 3.0 was a better engine...

we thought the quad 4'* were bad untill we played with a couple of the 2.4-2.5 I-4'*...

Nissan had a recal a couple of years ago on the 2.5 that stated that a malfunction inside the cat converter would cause carbon and exhaust to not be able to flow out of the exhaust manifold which would clog the exhaust valves and soon after blow the motor. Ive talked to 5 guys w/ sentra'* that have replaced there motor'* at least once. But hey I guess every car company has there problems

So true. GM- electrical, Ford- gaskets, and Chrysler- transmission+ everything. Seriously, nowadays everything seems almost equal; just different quirks.

That would be a VERY mild cam. More like .7 secs.
