I appologize if this has been asked before, but I'm trying to find out which P12 models are fitted with the VE engine

On the P11 I know its the Te-V and G-V, but can't find the P12 ones....  :cry:

It's a model called the 20V. It doesn't look any different externally.
Inside is a bit different....3 pedals, plus a rev counter that reads to 10K

Another quick question, the 2.5 litre engine. What's the opinions on them. Beter or worse then the VE's..?

Depends on whether you prefer a lazy, torquey engine (QR25) or one that loves to rev and be kept singing up above 5000rpm using the six speed gear box (SR20VE) :twisted:
 The 20V uses uprated suspension among other things to keep up it's end of the bargain as the P12's sports model.
old, fat & slow - not as slow as you though.

You may struggle to find a 20V in the UK. I also hear that you can get
a UK version P12 with the QR20 engine and a 6 speed manual over ther
as a factory version.

We have a few 20V's finding their way into NZ as 2nd hand Jap imports.
I have taken a few for a thrash and they certainly go well. But they are no
quicker than a modded P10 due to their weight.

But the QR20 is just a 140bhp replacement to the SR20DE so no better then I've got already. It's the VE I want. Time to lean Japanese... :D

I've heard the standard VE's are limited to 112MPH. How do you guys who run VE's get around this...?

We use aftermarket ecu's, piggy backs, daughterboards, or simply put up with 180km/h top speeds...

go to this uk site look in the electronic section where Paul  Chadwick says, "...I fitted a proprietary GREDDY part to remove the speed limiter, I think that it "fools" the ECU into believing that the car is still doing 111mph when you infact surpass that speed, an in-line device fitted on the road speed sender...." and see how he installed this GReddy speed limit bypass device to cure his affliction relating to top speed :wink:

here's the info from GReddy web site.
Type A Universal speedcut defeater suits most Nissans, Toyotas. Part number=15590201 price in USD=$76.25

I have experienced combinations of the following and had they all been combined the car would be a total rocketship...big exhaust, big cams, a good close gearset an ecu that allows higher rpm [and tuneability preferably] plus a few minor add ons such as GReddy MSS for VVL control, Adjustable fuel pressure regulator, adjustable cam gears...
 There are a lot of 'hot-up' parts available for the VE you just need to find them, many are Nissan parts from other engines/cars, some are being developed as we type ...they just aren't plentiful like tha aftermarket stuff other cars models enjoy...

look here for some really interesting VE knowledge
