Sr20ve more POWER
« on: 11 December, 2017, 09:42:31 PM »
Hay guys just wanting to know what mods can be used to get my Te V over 200hp  all I've got is a brand new KNn filter   has any one used a supercharger?  What about  An Air Actuator? Any advice will be great  CheerZ

200hp crank or wheels?

Crank is easy. Shorter headers and a tune will give you that.

Wheels require a bit more and you start getting into well thought out exhausts, bigger cams, head rebuild with reset valves, better springs and tidied up exhaust ports. Factory intake starts to become a hindrance and there really is no decent aftermarket setup short of full throttle bodies (which if well set up will net a nice gain). Tune becomes very important. The engine certainly has the potential to do 200hp at the wheels but its right at the cusp where most people stop because the dollars add up really quick after that.

Your K&N air filter will likely be doing nothing. I did find gain in the midrange by going longer in the intake pipe, having a proper air duct inlet and the filter in place of the headlight for cold air, but it wasn't anything substantial.

I do know someone who has gone down the supercharger route. It has cost him many thousands of dollars due to all the custom work required (no kits out there) and it makes no more power than a stock TD05 can make on an Evo, while being particularly noisy. Torque from a supercharger only has its advantage till about 3000rpm, then a turbo overtakes, especially if its a nicely set up twin scroll. A turbo will do this at a fraction of the cost of a supercharger.

I don't know what you mean by air actuator.

To get yourself started, I suggest you start with an exhaust (stock headers shortened to 200mm behind the 3-bolt flange), a 2.5" exhaust. N1 cams if you can afford it (about $800 I think), and a tune (there are a few options for this, but if you are going to your local tuner then to be honest probably a Link ECU as most tuners cant be bothered learning anything else). Other tuning options are nismotronic (best daughterboard, live tuning and very capable), or an EPROM daughterboard (still more than capable enough for a VE, but not many people are able to work with them these days due to equipment and tech know-how required). Don't have aspirations of revving to the sky. The stock intake manifold is long past its prime once you get to 7500rpm. 8000rpm is a sensible and safe limit for an engine in good condition.

edit, I should also add there can be a lot gained in making sure everything is working properly. Injectors flowing properly and correct spray. Distributor cap and rotor fresh for stronger spark. Air flow meter reading correct. Ignition timing correct. Timing chain not stretched. Don't just bolt shit on and expect it to make power

200hp/150kw at the flywheel in nz means cams, good headers and exhaust, daughterboard and tune.
200hp/150 at the wheels is a pretty full house build. there are a number of guys that are running 140-145kw, but tipped in a fair bit of coin.

Im doing 140kw at the wheels, but that has been from rebuild (standard specs, race bearings), modified stock intake manifold and custom intake pipe, Custom 4-1 headers that I made myself tuned to match the n1 cams, e20 fuel blend, nismotronic ECU. A couple little things like windage tray etc which may or may not make power.

I guess all up its cost me about 4 grand to set it up like that. Cheap as chips in the big picture. This stuff is cheap cos you can make decent power on a range of stock parts from various models. Im currently working on a turbo build and the drivetrain will sting around 30g by the time its done, and thats with me doing all the work.

Are you still running the CVT gearbox on a 285KM primera? If so I would suggest you don't spend any money on it at all. Get a VZR for $2K and thrash the hell out of it, it'll be much more fun.

What is your budget?

Fitting SR16VE cams will still require to you to tune the motor
Rebuilding will be pricy. You be looking at 3-4k for an engine build, parts and labor (of the motor only)
P12 SR20VE, very over priced. If your worried about a tired engine get a low KM / Better serviced p11 motor and tune that. P12 engines are costly, Cost a lot to get running and not that much better overall than a P11 motor
