What I have learned About The SR20VE 20V 204 HP Motor
If you get this motor, trans wireharness and comp complete it will bolt up and run in a B15 car. Do not try to do this in a B13 and B14 car because all of the plugs going out to the rest of the car are way diffrent. You will have to get rid of the individual coils and distributer to run this car in the B13-B14 cars unless you can get a comp and harness from a S13 model car.
The SR20VE 20V 204 hp motor is very diffrent to the older VE motors. Trust me when I say this.
This motor comes with only one cam selenoild.
The motor uses a drive by wire system unlike the older VEs which use cable.
The TB is 70-75 mm but can not be used on anything we have here but a QR25DE motor.
The motor comes with tubular headers that 1 7/8ths to 2 inchs in diameter. Yes thats for each runner.
The flyweel and clutch is nothing like what I have seen before will try and have Serban come down and post pics for me.
Any DE distributer will clear the one selenoid that is on the car.
The motor uses TOP Feed injs like the new B15 cars. Injs color is green
The MAF size is 3.5 inchs
The header gasket is made of metal and is reusable. Have the guys at Mossy Nissan order this part will be very usfull and cost effective to get.
The knock sensor now has a clip like an inj pug instead of the old wire clip that use to hold it on, very easy to remove and put on.
This car still uses a FPR I though it **** be a return less sytem like the QR25 motor setup
These are all my observations as of day one. Will keep you guys posted.
If you need any help with your car and you cant solve the problem, call me at 305-282-3643

Damn... I should have looked at getting that Sentra SE 2.0 instead of my 98 SE-R...
This is great news for B15ers!

If this is drive by wire, would that be complicated to hook to into a SR powered b15, since our cars are still cable operated as well? Or would a QR powered car with necessary b15 SR components be easier? Also, is it a cable tranny like the QR, or is it a linkage like the SR?

Some more info today. The intake ports of the SR20VE 20V are diffrent from all the other VE motors. Not by much it is just a modification done by the new top feed injs that they are using.
The TB controls everything. The TB controls cold start idle and AC idle up. So there is no other sensors on the intake but the TB and its sensor.
The valves are thinner than the other VE valves. They measure out to be about 5 mm. Yes the stem is very thin and I guess Nissan did so for better air flow and less chance of valve float at high RPMs, lighter valves.
The engine looks to have the older style pully from 91-99 SR20DE motors. or maybe the GTIR pully.
Andreas, do you have more of these engines floating about in the states or are you referring to engines found in Japan? Also what are they out of? Nissan X-Trails (sports model)?
I have alot of the 97-2001 SR20VE 190 HP models. P11 Primera and U14
I only have one 2002-2003 SR20VE 20V 204 HP model. This motor has 5,000km but I am not selling it. P12. This motor has been discontinued. Only made for 2 years and in very low quantitys.
The Xtrail has the 276 HP SR20VET but that motor is very rare and hard to get. It will be very exspensive if one if found. As far as I am concerned this motor is a waste of time because a standard DET will perdorm just as good just my opinoin for a turbo guy.
