Default Turbo mag states v8 and G nose

I was reading this months Turbo mag. and it stated that the new Z34 might come with a special edition with a G nose (for you old school 240z owners), and a v8.

I wonder if it will be the 390hp v8 that the FX50 has.

Sounds too good to be true. But I'd rather have a turbo V6.

Lies

The Z43 will not have a bigger motor that the R35. I don't even think the VQ38HR from the Fairlady Z NISMO Type RS will make it over here. (produces 400HP)

RS doesn't make 400... 350 HP and 293 lb.-ft. of torque


But agreed.. Doubtful to get that motor here. Heck it was only limited to 300 cars in japan.

If if did...All the speculation of a lighter better handling Z would be out the window.

Nope I say keep the 370/Z trim and nimble.

I was reading on this forum, that if you don't have proof, your post is basically



Also I'd prefer a V6 pushed to its limit, than just easily cranking out a V8.

Turbo mag is about as reliable as my dog's bunghole

It tells me there will be a corn covered Z.

This is an old topic but I wouldn't count on a V8 Z. IMO

My dog's bunghole is pretty reliable. Just check the bottom of my shoes.
