You better believe it! Rumour is Toyota won't be sitting back with just a 4.7 V8 for much longer either. Anyone have any more info on that?

Sounds like nissan is finnally letting the V8 off its leash.. Its been know that it is a very capable engine, with maxium capacity at 6.1 litres.

A tuned version of that engine could find itself into a sedan.

Nissan are certainly hitting their straps, in the US you can get a 6speed 190kw 3.5L Maxima, which runs like mid 14s stock.
You can also get this same engine, a detuned version in the Altima, which is slightly bigger than a Pulsar.

Would be good to see this in a sedan with a manual box behind it. But in typical Jap manufacturer tradition, all we'll probably see in our market here is a complete absence of any performance variant, and an overpriced underperforming yawn-a-minute replacement.

The Jap manufacturers need to spread their wings with their performance models - Toyota Aus and Nissan Aus really have the most incredibly boring new model lineups ...
