crash-

They are claiming the horsepower has been increased by 50% and yet it is still going through the CVT. While that may be great for a one-of-a-kind concept car, it is highly doubtful that the CVT would survive for long under that stress in the real world. The Murano GT-C is simply a show car used by Nissan to bring attention to the Murano. Nothing more.

Agree with Joe. I just cannot imagine this sort of power going through the current CVT. "Cooking" comes to mind....:D

You all know that Nissan detuned the 350Z engine to fit the MO CVT transmission because the torque was too high for the belt!!!
Audi has the same problem with his Multitronic.:4:

nissanlove-

I assume you meant longitudinal (front to back) and not transverse (side to side). Yes?

If you mount the VQ longitudinally you might as well go all the way and install a manual six-speed and make it rear wheel drive. Now start thinking of all the upgrades you can do. You would have an SUV with the Z's pedigree.

There is simpler solution - go and get a FX! It does have engine mounted longitudinal, is RWD and does have Z-pedigree....:D

Oh, and there is plenty of room under the hood of FX35 just waiting for all the mods....:D

Having owned a 94 Tbird with a Supercharged 3.8L 6 cyl , and a 4 cyl Turbo Charged Dodge, I agree with you.
The constantly available torque is a lot of fun.
SC for me all the way.
