Murano with 5.6L DOHC 32-valve V8 with 305 HP @ 4900 RPM and 379 LB of torque @ 3600 RPM if Nissan "accidentaly" placed such powerplant under MO's hood (compliments of TITAN)?

Yes? No? Maybe?

Yeah, I'ld jump all over it IF..............

IF it had some other tranny in it. I don't think the CVT could take it.

As an old American iron guy, I still like V8s with gobs of torque down low vs screaming 6s.

As tempting as it might sound I probably wouldn't go for it. As I stated in another post I was interested in the FX45, but cost and mileage changed my mind. I guess I've grown weary of gas guzzlers.

Yes but only if they made the SE's suspension more sporty.

Yes if:

1. it had CVT
2. AWD
3. as an economy measure 4 cylinders were shut off during steady speed drive (aka Dodge Magnum, new honda Accord hybrid)
4. cost similar to the current MO

Already have a Murano.... already have the 5.6... In my Armada. The engine is wonderful-- great tow vehicle. The MO doesn't need this mill and it'd never fit! ; )

yeah there's rumors of this actually happening. A car geek friend of mine saw it on some website.. though I think he said it's not gonna happen (was slated for 2006). :-(

probably not. It would cost more to buy and run, and the MO has adequate power for what I do with it. Also, I really do need my drivers license....

And at that point, why not get an FX? That's a lot of power to be putting to the front wheels primarily. Might as well do it with a RWD setup, a tranny that can handle it etc.
