Speed Academy stopped by OnPoint Dyno to talk with owner Sasha Anis about the new naturally aspirated 4.2 L VQ-series V6 built for his Nissan 350Z race car. The engine was built by Jim Wolf Technology who specialize in Nissan racing engines with a goal of making 450-500 horsepower to the wheels. The engine features JE pistons, custom Carrillo rods based on S2000 rods, stroker crankshaft, very aggressive camshafts, 57 mm individual throttle bodies, ported heads by 4Piston Racing, and 14-15:1 compression ratio. Listen as Sasha explains the special engine and the unique hybrid electric system.
Update 3-21-19: Article incorrectly stated engine was based on a VQ37 because of block stamp (seen below). Engine is based on a VQ35HR.
