The VQ37 is a pretty strong motor, and runs a VVEL (variable valve timing) setup for a broader torque curve and better throttle response. But at the moment, Nissan/Infiniti is only using it in the Sport/Touring/Crossover SUV lineup (370Z, G37, M37, EX37, FX37).

But given the fact it makes 350 @ 7,000 RPM and 276 lb/ft @ 5,200 RPM in the NISMO 370Z version of the engine, it seems like it would do well.
Yeah, that's what I mean.

The VVEL should produce some good HP numbers on the highway for trucks.

Who knows, maybe they will put in a few trucks next year?
