I just get my MT magazine yesterday and have learned that on page 114, the new G35 Coupe Sport 6MT model get an additional 15hp (thumps up) Anyone knows how they do that?

I'M LOVING IT.

That news has been out for a while. Good question on where they're getting the extra ponies from, though. Technosquare has shown there isn't that much to be found in ECU tuning, so there must be something else.

Hey Guys/Gals:

Here's what I've found out. I sent a bunch of information to a close friend that will most likely purchase one early next year:

Under G35 Coupe Performance Enhancements:

increase to 7,000 rpm compared to the automatic transmission-equipped G35 coupes’ standard 280 horsepower and 6,600 rev limit, bringing its power to 298-horsepower. The extra power comes from the addition of electronic exhaust valve timing and numerous structural improvements to the engine block. Torque is rated at 270 lb-ft for the G35 Coupe and 260 lb-ft for the G35 Coupe 6MT.

Under G35 Sedan Performance Enhancements:

For 2005, several modifications have been made including a new electronic exhaust valve timing, improved cooling and air flow and strengthening of several components, resulting in an increase of horsepower and torque to 280 horsepower (from 260 hp) and 270 lb-ft of torque (from 260 lb-ft) for models equipped with the advanced 5-speed electronically controlled automatic transmission with manual shift mode.


It looks like focusing on the "improved airflow and cooling" aspects of the 2005 G35s may give you FX35 guys/gals some ideas.

Great links below!

you know....getting extra HP at RPMs like 7000 doesnt excite me at all. i want the power lower in the RMP range, which means there would need to be more torque at a given number. here it just seems as though they upped the max RPMs to make that final number. i guess if you are dragging, this will help, but i bet the dynos would be the same all the way up the 6500 on these.

whaddya think?

Future tip: I use the blue/white scheme, and I can't see the yellow some folks use for emphasis at all.

I changed iit to "blue". Curious as to why your browser can't see yellow on this background. Anyways, I hope this helps out.
