Man, you beat me to it. I wanted to post this last weekend and didn't get around to it. Great info. It's crazy how now the valves now control all air intake. Like a throttle body would. Even though it still uses the throttle body for other small functions. This is my understanding of it. I also read that in the next couple years there going to combine this with direct fuel injection. Nice.

i don't understand...my dealer told me the way VVEL works was that nissan implemented rabid hampsters on treadmills up on the cam area to help us power to 330hp.

my question is...there are no mention of the hampsters??

As for the actual technology, it looks like the valve is adjusted by a dc motor turning a screwed gear? How on earth is that fast enough to respond to a rapidly revving engine?

From the sound of that presentation, you'd think we'd be getting a 100HP+ gain over the previous engine.....
Well, BMW had to twin turbo to get 300 hp out of their 6 cyl. We get 330 without the added risk/heat/$$ associated with twin turbos.

Not bad numbers IMO.

until 2006 BMW had a 3.2 I6 making 333 bhp .... they didn't have to go turbo, they chose to.

they chose to and they HAD to.

that 3.2 making 333hp was in a car that sold for $50-$55K. if they want a sub-M car starting at $42K making todays standards of 300hp they needed to either bump the displacement or go FI. they chose the easiest route...platform share from a 328i and turbo...which let to amazing results.

Dude... You just agreed with me they didn't HAVE to go turbo, they could have just gone up in displacement. ... lol
