i have owned one for approx 2yrs,
series 1, done 51km, all the usual mods, suspension, fuji exhaust, pipercross intake, slotted rotors and ebc pads,
body colour is white with all the n1 stickers down the sides.
there is only one other here in nz, a plain black one, also a series 1 with no rear spoiler.
just want to find out how many N1's are around not how many engines. there must be a way of determining a N1 from one with the engine put in. Maybe the chassis number will tell us. The version 2 will be very easy to distinguise, because of the interior. I guess manual windows and no central locking and the body kit should show the difference in a Version 1.
So maybe someone knows what a N1 chassis number should be?
There have been lots discussions around regarding real numbers of cars produced. Nobody found or published something official. We only have limitation numbers.
I've been able to count so far 343 VersionI Model code:ECVARMFN15EDAXXXXX
From September 1997 to March 1998
36 VersionII Cars (Model Code:ECVARMFN15EDAPXXXX)
First two cars on June 1998 although official release was on November 1998 I found one car build on that date, the majority of them on December 1998 and two cars on February 1999.
Lucinos could be counted by using ten fingers for both versions. Black color was also rare. Not all cars were Autech versions, there were few that were made without Autech brand. Nissan did the complete development. Autech was just the dealer...
Of course these are not all. I have not finished counting them cause it's a boring and long processing task.
How did I get them? Vin cross-checking though Fast...
Its very interesting that you say nissan did the development, and that autech co was simply the dealer. From what limited information there is out there - it all says that autech co did the engine modifications, design and trim variences. Have you got any links to some of this info? I really doubt that nissan did the building of the cars, for example, the Autech Stagea - it comes with its own uniqe model code, which is specifically only for autech vehicles eg: JN15 - HN15 etc. My Autech HN15 according to nissan fast has a 1.8ltr motor with regular gearbox etc - but according to Autech Japan its been modified by them with their parts.
The numbers i got were directly from Autech Co japan, and keep in mind that these cars were on an order only basis - so if no customer wanted them for march 1998 for example - then none were taken off the production line from nissan and sent to Autech Co for modification. Even so i do not know how accurate nissan fast is for referencing to something like that, especially numbers of vehicles. Again on my Autech HN15, it still says SR18DE on the build plate along with the open diff gearbox code of RS5F32A - identicle to what nissan fast tells me - however i will get that little blue box once you plug the vin number, stating that the car is an Autech Vehicle.
We share same love and passion. I have no intention to come in dispute with you but please keep in mind that in the whole world you are not the only person who managed to get in touch with Autech Japan.
I am able to get print screens of all the numbers I've mentioned. I didn't get them of my mind. I will not do so as these information is good to remain private.
Hello fast focus.
I wonder why you call it race it edition. Does it have anything extra to the engine side?
Do all Version II have a black coated manifold from factory?
I had seen one on japanese owner but thought he had painted himself.
Here are some facts.
Parts that remained same among the years.
10103-1N555 partcode:10103 Complete block
11000-1N510 partcode:11010 plain block (using a newer fast you get 11000-1N550 as the latest part which is a standard B14/N15 SR16VE block)
11040-1N520 partcode:11041 plain head (no cams,valvetrain)
Parts that have upgraded part numbers are among others: pistons,rings,flywheel,solenoids,Slack chain guide,rocker arms&shafts,water pump
There are two basic part numbers for complete engines. Engine comes complete without manifolds and sensors.
10102-1N557 partcode:10102 Bare Engine 2WD.PUL.SR16VE.N1 9811-9910 (VersionII)
10102-1N555 partcode:10102 Bare Engine SR16VE.N1.MT 9709-9910 (VersionI)
In the past years there were also rebuilt engines but now you can get only new. I had seen this guy and made me wonder how he manage to get a brand new N1 engine. Well he did!
What to know how much I was quoted about the 10102-1N557 engine? 489900Yen!
People who look for a N1, there's hope out there...
My vin and every VersionI vin I tested displays 10102-1N555 for the engine including all Version II Lucinos (I have 7 so far) but in all Version II Pulsars you also get the 10102-1N557 engine as an option to choose. Fast has the same pricing for both.
