Will it feel different probably, will it be better who knows. Whats the torque difference, where is the peak HP made, how much power do each make across the entire RPM range, does the power match up with your driving style...do you live 1/4 mile at a time...

basically, drive both, see how it feels

yes, absolutely.. esp. if you have owned the car for a few months/years... you know you're car... you will feel 5-10hp diff... at least I did.

lol - notice a 5 hp diff? You have quite a sensitive *** to feel that in the seat....30hp diff - yea you'd notice that...unless other factors are different. Like Duece12 said, check the other specs to see how they compare. Are the gears the same? Lot of variables with a generic post. Everything the same other than more hp(and I'd assume torque is more) yes you'll feel it.

I feel 5hp changes in the same car is when it becomes noticeable, that much hp will make a big difference but if the cars aren't exactly the same its much less noticable

the 02 and 03 have a lil more torque buy weigh 500lbs more, so i doubt you will really feel a whole lot of difference, but i would still go with the higher torque

Those 3.5 MAXIMA's are pretty quick

I still pull on em thou :)

in regard to the idiot comments with 900+ no turbo.

A tunning mag 2 yeard ago had a contest to see who could make an engine more powerful

a 2.5 L made 1488 BHP, where a V10 barely strugled to do 13XX

Screw your pathetic excuse.

It takes an idiot to make something bigger, but a genuis to make is smaller and less complex
