Nissan's VQ didn't make Ward's 10 Best Engines list for the first time

Maybe the high-rpm harshness of the VQ in its latest iterations caused this hah

certainly, the rev up oil consumption motor blew it.

the new HR has no issues at all though, so expect to see it next year.

+1. They need to shove that 4.6 into the coupe somehow.

I'm a little surprised that all the fuel pump issues with the gasoline twin turbo-6 doesn't seem to have any impact.
