Anyone wish G37 gained tq instead of hp?

Applies to all G37s, but since I have a sedan, I'll post it here. When Infiniti went from the 3.5 to the 3.7, hp went up 22 but torque only went up 1. Now, that's great for marketing and all-out driving (1/4 mile runs seem to be about .2 quicker). But I'm guessing, since I haven't owned a G before, that for everyday, not going over 4000 rpm driving, that there isn't much of a difference. So I was wondering if anyone else feels that Infiniti should have increased the tq instead of hp with the displacement increase? Just thinking out loud.

yes it would have been nice if both went up proportionally, but in terms of everyday driving I go well over 4000 rpm every single time I drive...

I go over 4,000 rpm every day and I'm trying hard not to. (break-in period).

... but yes, I would love some more torque and would sacrifice some HP to get it.

They did flatten out the torque curve quite a bit versus the VQ35HR.

270 torque is a lot to get out of a V6 motor before going FI.

Ah, ok. That was something I was thinking, even though peak tq didn't really increase, maybe they flattened the curve. Glad to hear that's what happened. Like I said, I haven't owned a G35, so I can't compare but it sounds like the 35 (especially the first-gen) was more peaky than the 37?

And yes, 270 lbs/ft of tq is good for a N/A V6. I realize it's not a V8, it needs to rev more, so I'm adjusting my driving accordingly. I was just spoiled by the RS6's 415 tq from 1950-5600 rpms.

I got an awesome mod to get loads of torque.



............ traded the G37 for a 2009 CTS-V 551 lbs torque. Sorry, had to do it.

In all fairness, they did bump up the redline as well meaning the powerband is larger now (you spend more time there), I dont know why everyone ignores that and just looks at numbers

Well that would certainly do it -lol. I test-drove a C63 and IS-F a couple weeks ago, and while the wheels of nonsense were turning in my head for a few days, crunching the numbers and all that, I realized I would right back into the maintenance hell that comes with those super sedans. A major reason I sold my RS6.

Anyway, it's apples to oranges. Those cars are a whole different can of worms to a G37. Compared to its actual competitors, i.e. C300, 328i, IS 350, etc., it's still the best choice, IMO.

In it's class G37 is the best IMO as well. That's why I bought it. Dead sexy car.

I feel we need more torque in our cars because once you get used to it, it seems to get slower and slower. this is the reason i will be Supercharging my sedan once the Still supercharger kit is released then i wouldnt mind enjoying the 340-360 ft lbs of torque (depending on how much boost is applied)
