Anyone know? All the sites I've looked at today list the 91-93 NX2000 at the usual 140hp, but only 130ft lbs of torque. Anyone have any idea why it differs from the other SE-R ratings of 132 ft lbs?

I think the exhaust is more restrictive on the NX.

so Racer, what u saying is that.. that HP is from the final throughput of the power then.. if so, then the engine itself should be the same as the SE-R's whatever the HP is coming out of.

now that, my friends, is comedy, or insanity, I don't know but both are funny.

PS, it's not good to laugh at work when you are in a cubical.

thats just the peak figure... it probably still makes 114.8lb of torque at 6400rpm for 140hp.

besides, factory figures are mostly just a rough estimation.


what i want to know is why the NX2000's gas mileage is listed LOWER than the Sentra... esp the highway numbers (30mpg vs. 32mph) when the NX has less drag... which is substantial at freeway speed.

I was wondering about the same thing the other day.

The NX *may* get worse mileage due to wider stock tires, 195 vs. 185. Wider tire = more rolling resistance. Just my .02.

BTW, what the best mileage anyone has gotten on one tank of gas? Just curious...

maybe the different exhaustive just moves the power band higher

besides the wider tires the brakes are also larger ... but i cant see that hurting the gas mileage that much... if anything it should be offset by the lower coefficient of drag.

i had a homepage that had formulas for calculating downforce and power (hp) needed to overcome the drag ... but i lost it


note: in automobiles a CoD decrease from .4 to .3 should increase gas mileage by ~7.5%

I've gotten 302 miles to a full tank of 93 octane of highway driving to Long Island, about 40 percent of the time I was using the A/C too. That was my best so far.

Whoa... That doesn't sound all that great. When my SE-R was stock (first few months of ownership) I was able to get just under 300 miles with mostly street driving. When I drove down to SoCal for the '99 SE-R Convention, I was able to get 360 miles out of the tank (CAI and exhaust)... And with the mods I have now I was able to get around 390 miles to the tank driving up to Shingle Springs (Ground Control) and back (with A/C, too!)... Don't remember exactly how much I had to fill following the trip, but I remember calculating 34mpg which isn't too shabby at all for a full bolt-on car.

FWIW, My NX was able to get around 350-360 miles on a full tank driving down to SoCal (no A/C since there isn't any.) Though I find it odd that some sources list the NX having 130lb/ft of torque vs. the SE-R's 132lb/ft. Check this out, though:

http://www.geocities.com/n_dahi/articles/cd_4_91/page4.jpg

This is a scanned copy of a Car & Driver article for the NX2000, and as you can see, C&D lists it at 132lb/ft. Weirdness...

I average between 32 and 34mpg for daily driving, and on long distance I have managed 42mpg before!

Actually, I might be getting better than that now, as my engine has gone into a stupid "full economy, no performance" mode
There is an active topic about this problem which you can find here

I put in some more petrol this morning, and worked out that with the 8.3 gallons of petrol I did 290 miles. That equates to 34.9mpg.

me too, dude. i stop pumping after the first two clicks. then on the next pump i stop after 2 clicks and divide the miles by gallons i just put in. it usually works out to 24-26mpg. thats piss-poor for an economy car. i run 75% highway without AC on low. AND i've been giving into winddrag and cruising slower on the highway (~65mph)

methinks i need new tuneup?
