Re: Engine Upgrades FAQ


Please don't try to turbocharge QR25DE or even QR20DE's, they are open deck engines & can't support well the added pressure.

Sparks I'll also recomend NGK platinum, take a look at www.sparkplugs.com

Re: Engine Upgrades FAQ


Well Manuel in B15sentra there are several QR25DEs holding up to 6.5-8psi of boost rather well (267whp) with the PTI or FI-R turbo kits. There are currently two Spec Vs pushing out more than 400whp on built engine and an automatic SE-R with 300whp.

There has been new parts updates as well. There is a destroker kit with a SR20DE crank and pistons which N/A pushes the QR to 250whp.

WTF? The SR20 has a 86mm bore, whereas the QR has a 89mm bore... The SR crankshaft will NEVER fit into a QR as the bore spacings are completely different, the main bearing points are different, the timing chain gear and oil pump drive are different... TOTALLY different motors.

Re: Engine Upgrades FAQ


Hey Rich,
I don't think that is the case here...

Fitting the QR20 crank & pistons with QR25 conrods would result in the piston extending a couple of 'mm above the block deck height. Fitting QR20 crank, conrods & pistons to a QR25 block would result in a QR20 emoticon

Definitely not 250whp from a <2.5L QR

Terranismo: How did you adjust your ignition timing setting to 17 degrees??

Re: Engine Upgrades FAQ


There are some pretty scary items on that list.
Balance shaft removal kit? (good way to make an engine die a short death) Pulley kits? (ditto)
Might be good on a high revving race engine but I'd be dubiuos on something like an Exy.

Even the cams I'd be wary of. The QR25DE is lumpy enough on idle.

To me the easiest way of getting a bit more grunt would be headers, filter and a good flow job. A blower would be ok as well but only if the deck was closed. (not a particularly easy job).

I've only had my Exy for about 750kms now and already I've had a look down the inlet chambers. A simple cleanup of the inlet would definately make an improvement as they were pretty rough. The throttle body to plenum chamber is miss-matched, which also benefit from a smoothing out. (oh boy the missus is gonna hate me!)

Hey AKAK9,

What have you done to your intake since this last post ?

I've done the full exhaust and now wondering what could be done to the intake apart from a CAI.
