Hey everyone, this has been bothering me for almost a year now. I have a Primera engine, and still dont know if its a higher compression one, or same as my old one.

I have heard just about every side of the story of which are high compression, and which are the same as US ones.

Here is what I have heard from different people.

* the auto ones are high compression
* the auto ones are low compression
* all gold colored VC is high compression
* all are high comression

here is what I have heard...and I am more puzzled than I was when I started thinking about this. Again, I have an engine from an auto, and has the all gold colored VC.

Does anyone know the answer to this?

Well, i dont know the answer, but cant you run a compression check/test? That would answer it for you, right?

A compression test will not tell you the compression ratio. You would need to cc the head and calculate the swept volume of the piston (displacement) to determine the compression ratio. A compression test will tell you how hard things are being squeezed and if you car is healthy.

where is the best place to order a primera engine? and is the engine all you need to do a swap, in say, an NX2000?

Well, in doing that, couldnt you compare those results, wit the results of a US SR20DE, and figure what sup?

im going to give you something that i sent to the se-r list :

Hey guys i know im bringing up an old thread but i think someone of you who are getting ready to order an engine might be intrested. This morning i Called both places Watnabe and Soko ( i had to call Watanabe a few times to get someone i could understand) here are the numbers i came out with: K. WATANABE : Engine 350.00 ,Core Charge 50.00 Shipping 300.00 (to nc)(i have to send my engine back also) Total of 650.00
SOKO : Engine 550.00 Shipping 100.00 Total 650.00
Seeing how they are both the same price i would go with Soko. i have heard nothing but good things about their engines. Wanatanabe i heard a few good things shadowed by bad things. Well i hope this helps somone in the purchase of their engine

[note: The Sales guy at soko asked me if i was a certified mechanic about 100 times, and he said if i do the installation there is no warrenty] So he said he would make sure i get the best engine they had
