Closed deck is built like a tank. But it is very poor at passing emissions. The open deck is much cleaner with emissions due to the fact that the cylinder is surrounded by water jackets that cool the engine down and reduce "bad" emissions.</font>
LOL<font face="Verdana, Arial" size="2">The new QR is open deck and has a very long stroke. It is not square like the SR20 or even the new RSX-S engine. Overall I like the sr20 way more than the "truckish" QR engine.
Whatever. If it was such a hot performance engine, then why does it have such a low redline? Because it has weak valvetrian. Why did Nissan equip it with a weak vavletrain? because it is not a performance engine. The SR20DE/VE is a performance engine. The B18C1&5 are performance engines. Not the QR. The QR has more torque than hp. That is a performance engine!!!<font face="Verdana, Arial" size="2">What is "truckish" about the engine? The stroke? MANY performance engines are strokers. Damn, every rev happy engine in Honda's fleet is a big time stroker.
How about a stroked 408 Ford smallblock that revs 8000rpm and begs for more.
What a joke naji...drive it first before you slam it.
Your such a negative person...sheesh.
