from my understanding... or from what I've heard... The V in V-spec pertained to the supension rating on the Skyline.. so probably means the same in the Spec-V

u want to know the real truth... there really isn't that big of a difference. It's all part of the marketing of the Spec-v being more a quote unquote... track ready off the floor. It hasn't been proven that it has 10 more horsepower.. its' only hearsay by nissan. Because.. how can 2 cars with the same base and same qr engine and basically same everything have a difference of 10hp between them. Unless it's something in the ecu. then I stand corrected.

Can you disprove the claim??? With different difs/tranny, ecu's and muffler go figure?

Yes marketing wanted the upscale lable of the Spec V

Aus/NZ/Jpn markets have a s15 w/ Spec R and Spec S lables to denote trim levels.

The 10hp comes from the "Spec V" sticker on the door!

The V-Spec (skyline) stands for "Victory Specification". When turned into Spec-V for the sentra, that would basically then stand for "Specification Victory". As for SER vs SpecV, the biggest difference is not in the power, but in the differential (open vs HLSD), transmission (5spd vs 6spd), and suspension (firm vs ultra stiff).

All the 2000+ sentras are the fifth gen models, but the spev v, is just like a special performance package, i'm sure you know this. i'm just saying that it is "supposed" to be pronounced 5 as according nissan. its not spec v as related to the v spec skyline.

Presedente,

I'm sorry, but you are wrong. I've done homework and I know for a fact its as Ryan (Boosterwitch) said, it is just a reversal of the Skyline V-Spec...hence if you decided to read Nissan's marketing ploy for the Spec"V" They hint at the seats being "Skyline-inspired" Hence...the connection to the Skyline V-Spec.
