Taking an educated guess, not entirely sure, but I would say nothing. Probably the same exact V6 from the older 350z's, the vq35de. Nissan uses the same v6 for everything mostly.

^Not even then, common sense and good driving techniques go a long way in foul weather on any car. FWD is only better for the average joe/jane in foul weather.

Now to the subject of the thread: I had a run with an Altima 3.5 sedan and it walked away from the Celica. So will the current and last generation Accord V6, as will the current V6 Sonata. A current Camry V6 will yank it pretty bad driven by your average 70 year old grandma.

Yes it is and it's a reality that nowadays these sedans will put a hurting on it. I didn't say I raced an Altima, it was more like toying with it, we did a couple of pulls and it walked away from me steadily.

These mom mobiles will put a hurting on the GT-S because you will simply not be anywhere near your powerband in street situations, unless you're running around at 45 in 2nd gear all the time. People need to realize that 1.8L and torque don't go together when you are NA.

Even when we go to race situations:
Accord pervious gen: A V6 6speed will put down mid to high 14s, some have hit low 14s.

Maxima/Altima V6: mid 14s

Sonata V6: high 14s

Camry V6: low, low 14s (14.2 on average) Go check the Camry forums and see what some of the ladies have put down on the track.
