V8 firebird street car, 4cyl NA '13 miata, 4 cyl turbo CX-7, 4 cyl NA cobalt, 4 cyl altima coupe, V6 firebird. All cars I've owned, all had more low end pull than the 6 offers at given throttle positions. Go drive a base model cruze.. less power, more pull. At tip in, and low RPM, the car simply has NO pull from a stop or on the interstate. It requires SIGNIFICANT effort and patience to get moving. Even that little cobalt I mentioned didn't feel lethargic as the 6 does prior to 3K RPM. There's no denying it.. the car is running an efficiency cycle at that stage, where anything else I've owned wasn't. It's DIFFERENT. Hell Even my formula with a cam that's powerband is from 3,250-7,000RPM has more pull at 1,500 than the 6 has at 3,000RPM.. and that's with 32* of valve overlap :O
Please tell me more how that is an un-quantifiable statement and moronic. As for a car that gets your agenda.. same one I'm debating trading in on. 302HP Volvo T6 S60. 36hwy MPG ~13.9 1/4 mile... You were saying? At the time I bought this car, it was un-heard of and altima was the only other competitor for the same MPG and power.. I swore off Nissan close to 8 years ago, so I had one choice and I loved how the car looked (still do)
The TLX is a stretch I'll give you that. But as for 200HP as a #.. it does it. I could've just as easily named the base Volvo S60 with 250HP with turbo and torque from 1,800RPM up, but that just wouldn't be fair now would it?
Solar if the 6 survives this round of my wanting to buy something else, it WILL get a K&N CAI and a magnaflow muffler (most likely single exit and a dummy tip on the left)
