does anyone know where to obtain the specs of the engine components for the new 5.7 motor so I can show my Titan loving friend that the new engine is comparable to his beloved 5.6 Endurance??

all I hear is eight bolt brain caps this and titanium valves that.... and the engine is capable of 500hp easy.

Dont get me wrong, I like the Titan, I am not looking for a Titan bashing thread here, just some specs on the 5.7 and how it stacks up against the Titans motor...

Yota 5.7. 381HP / 401lb/tq. Over 300 ft/lb at 1200 rpm. 360 at 2,400 rpm. 401 at 3,500 rpm.

Sissan 5.6 317hp / 385 ft/lb

The yota kicks the Sissan to the curb 0-60 and 1/4 mile too!

They're about the same for horsepower up to 5000RPM, but then the Nissan falls on its face and the Toyota keeps pulling right to redline.

For torque the Toyota produces more and over a wider spread.

Thanks for the useful information. I've not seen those graphs before.

Honestly, if you stop and think about it, 10 years ago, 300 HP in a 1/2 ton truck was pretty much unheard of. We should all be thankful for the options we have right now, regardless of brand, they are all much better than in years past, and it's turning into a HP war, which is good for everyone.

That said, my understanding is that the 5.6 Titan motor is tuned way down, and that with VVT, is capable of well over 400HP. Guess we'll have to wait and see. Supposedly Carl Renezeders CORR truck is making over 800 HP. Sure, the only remaining original component on that motor is the block, but it's still a Nissan none the less.

Again, we should all be thankful for the current HP war that is developing. And I honestly have to state that I think Dodge's HEMI can be credited for getting the ball rolling.

Totally agree with this statement. I bought one of the first Dodge Hemi's when it came out which was far ahead at the time, and ended up owning another 2 years later.

Ran a nice 15.8 with a QC 4x4 running 315/70/17's... which ain't bad at all for nearly a 35" tire on it.

While I agree the Hemi # wise is a little over-rated, and not a good motor for towing due to the low-end lack of power, Dodge putting out those #'s really did get the war started.

The bad news for them is it looks like they must've put a lot into that engine, and in the past 4 years haven't increased power whatsoever. I say they just drop the 6.1L in as a replacement to get up to speed and call it a day.

With that said, I was surprised to see Nissan increase their hp/tq #'s by just a hair, and dropped their mpg estimate from 14 to 13. Not sure if they have more drastic changes in the works perhaps for the 5.6L?

Not sure about that. The 428 Cobra Jet big-block in a 1969 put out 335 horsepower. Diesel equipped HD trucks of 10 years ago put out 400-500HP if I'm not mistaken.

I think the original poster wanted specs on the VVTI 5.7L and some of you are turning this thread into a 'let's not forget to worship our big 3' a**kissing contest.

OP, find an empty 2 lane road somewhere and take your friends Pissan out for a good spanking

Uhhh... that's not what he said. Dodge didn't even have the Hemi 10 years ago, it came out in 2003. He just said 10 years ago 300hp in a pickup was unheard of, and that's true. Being gasoline was understood I think, diesels are in their own class. I should know, I had one pushing near 1000 lbs tq. =)

And this isn't a worship the big 3, quick to get defensive aren't we? Before Dodge came out with the Hemi, ALL manufacturers were just increasing their power every year by a little, even the big 3. No one was over 300hp, and Dodge didn't just go over it, they jumped to a huge 345, which forced everyone to step up quite a bit... even the big 3.

Again, I took away from Dodge's credit that I think their #'s were overrated a hair, I owned 2, but it didn't matter, that forced everyone (including Ford & GM), to step up their power.

I don't think an engine made 30 years ago proves much about current productions in the past 10 years which is what is being talked about... because in the past 20 years there hasn't been that much power in a gas pickup period.

Heck, look at Chevy, they are still worshiping their 5.3L in most of their trucks, and it's way behind most of the competition... 330hp, 338 lbs. tq? Yes, they got the 6.0L, but do you know how hard they are to find in non high-end models compared to finding like a Hemi or 5.7L? They are rare, I've looked. They need to step it up, and will with the 6.2L, but they're behind IMO. Ford is also behind with their old 5.4L pushing what... 300 or so hp and 365 lbs. torque?

So no... not a worship the big 3 thread sorry, just a statement that one of them broke the mold and forced the others to step up, hence why we now have a lovely 5.7L Tundra I'm really craving. :D

Thank you for clearing that up. I'm glad somebody understood the point I was trying to get across. I'd be happy to own any of these trucks right now.

And for all the "Sissan/Pissan" bashers, when I bought my truck in December 2004, Toyota was offering the biggest pu$$ (HP wise) of a truck there was. It's about time they finally put an engine with some balls in their pickup.

Agreed on what most have said. My first truck was a 96 F150 w/ a whopping 190hp outta the 5.0L V8. Moved up to a big ole 255hp 5.7L V8 in my 98 GMC. Didnt break 300 until I got my first 04 Ram w/ the Hemi 5.7, 345hp.
