Jeff, the new M35 Stagea is offered with a VQ25DET engine. It kicks out 280ps(most probably over 300 as usual!!) and 41.4kg/m of torque @ 3200rpm! Its also 4WD and offered with the new generation Super Hicas so I'm sure with a few chosen mods it can really go!!
I've seen one of these in black with tinted windows and dark chrome AVS model 5s!! It looked superb!!!
Hi Dino..........thanks for the update, yeah I know the new Stagea come with a VQ25DET with 4WD and Super Hicas. I saw it in Tokyo Auto show 2001 and Tokyo Auto Salon 2002.
What I was trying to say was, unless someone put in a hugh amount of money to modify the VQ25DET, the VQ25DET would never be as strong as a tuned RB26DETT. Plus I believe the new Stagea with the VQ25DET only come with automatic transmission right? Am I correct?
I also noticed the new Stagea look really European, look a lot like a Volve/VW/Audi, I guess we are starting to see Renault's influence on Nissan's new product.
