Lexus did, dropped a V8 into their IS300, ..(IS430)

The 3.5 liter engine fits pretty snug in the engine bay. I dont see them being able to place another 1000cc into the bay. Plus the whole 53/47 wieght balance would be distrupted by alot.

^ exactly.

I think it would require a complete redesign in order to build such a car. In which case, they won't bother calling it a G-class car and would instead try to fill some other price point.

The FX is based on a modified FM platform, but the front suspension in the FX is struts instead of upper and lower control arms (struts take up less space, allowing room for the V8 in the FX45).

I doubt there will be a 45 version of the G unless there are significant modifications to the platform.

With a 280 HP V6, I seriously doubt we'll see a V8 in the coupe.....

After all, the current engine puts out more power than some V8 engines these days, and more than MOST V8 engines from just a few years back.

"I am curious why the members of this forum are requesting more power. I don't believe there are any serious street racers here. Thus, anyone who invests in additional performance equipment is likely wasting their time, since it's unlikely they will actually take advantage of the extra power. I suggest you leave your G35 stock."

Kloh, I'd have to disagree with the above comment. I commute to town daily and the drive is......spirited. I could use extra power there and any beamers that could be killed along the way would add an extra bonus. However I am of course an isolated case, and in turn somewhat of an "invalid" voice on this matter. But I could use the extra power, we all could........

Oops, I'm a retard. That comment was not made by Kloh, but by ichibahn. My bad.
