thats pretty much how this forum works and there are other things such as "fail or epic fail" for a heads up

im 22 and i think its all about experience. Dumb kids are acctually dumb parents passed down threw generations. Noone wants to raise kids anymore parents rely on teachers and teachers rely on parents and kids rely on each other. Blind leading the Blind... sorta like trying to blindly assume what a engine thats isnt available to analyse is going to be capable of.

It's the holiday season and every year people get pissy. They will cheer up if they get a tax return.

well i guess i can agree with this statement to some point. The part where i see they are stupid is how ever since elementary school they told us not to smoke or do drugs and even showed us the outcome yet when you get to high school or even college, people are popping pills or smokin. They are basically doing all the stuff that the school showed us was bad. BTW Im as old as you.

Anyways, I think the 370 will be very mod friendly. From the progression of DE to the HR, it appears that Nissan increased the potential of these engines.

From what I've heard, the stock exhaust isn't that loud, hopefully this equates into greater potential for airflow. Given that the new nismo is nearly a true dual, I'm sure this provide ample gains to compete with aftermarket companies. I guess we'll see...

It will be extremely hard to beat an LS3 in the mod-ability department.

Because thats what the OP is doing. He wants to know if the VQ will respond to basic bolt on's like the LS3 will. Everyone keeps mentioning turbo kits but he wants to know about basic bolt on's.

For those that weren't aware yet, here's a little bit of info on the V6 that is available in the lower model Camaro. The LS3 takes the cake as far as raw power is concerned, but the lower models engine isn't too shabby either.

3,564cc (3.6L) Direct Injection <- Like the IS350
300hp @ 6400 RPM
273 lbs-ft @ 5200 RPM
7000 RPM redline
11.3:1 Compression (This is not a typo)
Regular Unleaded (Also not a typo)

Imagine what a 91-93 octane tune could squeeze out, even if the rest was kept stock.

Indeed, the CTS' V6 is an amazing motor. GM reportedly has a small block V8 in the works with direct injection as well.

I love direct injection
