SR20VE FAQ: Read This First!

What does Neo VVL stand for?
Nissan Ecology Orientated Variable Valve Lift and Timing

The VE (Neo VVL) series of engines is Nissan's answer to Honda's VTEC.
The two systems are nearly identical. They use the same concept of
multiple cam lobes to provide a low rpm cam ideal for torque and a high
rpm cam optimized for hp. The only difference in the Nissan system is
that the intake and exhaust cams are triggered indepedently for a
flatter, more consistent power band. You can read more about the VTEC
system here.

How many different VE motors are there?
There are five (5) VE motors.
SR16VE - 173hp 5 speed Manual 97-2001
SR16VE N1 - 197hp 5 speed Manual 97-98
SR20VE - 187hp CVT 6 speed Auto 97-2001
SR20VE - 204hp 6 speed Manual 2001-Present
SR20VET - 276hp AWD Turbo 2002-Present

How much power does the VE have?
SR16VE - 173hp @ 7800rpm / 119lb torque @ 7200rpm
SR16VE N1 - 197hp @ 7800rpm / 134lb torque @ 7600rpm
SR20VE - 187hp @ 7000rpm / 145lb torque @ 6000rpm
SR20VET - 276hp @ 6400rpm / 228lb torque @ 3200rpm

How much do they cost?
SR16VE - $1000-$1600
SR16VE N1 - $3000+ good luck finding one*
SR20VE - $1000-$2500
SR20VET - unknown
*Only 500 of these engines are thought to have been produced.
**These are average prices based on availability and engine condition.
Actual prices may vary.

What are the origins of these motors?
SR16VE - 1.6L VVL motor found in the Nissan Sunny Lucino VZ-R, Sunny GT
and Pulsar VZ-R.
SR16VE N1 - 1.6L VVL motor found in the Nissan Pulsar VZ-R N1 and Pulsar
VZ-R N1 SSS.
SR20VE - 2.0L VVL motor found in the Nissan Primera (Infiniti G20
bodystyle), Bluebird, Wingroad, and Autobacs Garaiya.
SR20VET - 2.0L turbocharged VVL motor found in the Nissan X-Trail SUV,
and Trailrunner Concept Car.

** Thank-you to Christopher Skaggs, aka "AztekSE-R", for providing this
engine information. More info can be found here.

Where can I buy one?
Andreas Miko in Miami, FL (305) 282-3643
sr20development in CA (619) 69-TURBO
JGY Customs in VA (540) 379-1848
Yuji Ueno at MotoGumi Partners (626) 437-2058, $1500 for an SR20VE
Storm Performance in CA (925) 895-9793 & FL (954) 987-7355
Soko Engines (800) 338-7656 or (800) 598-3535

How difficult is installing a VE?
In a B13 I the install should be similar to that of a B14 with the only
exception being the wiring of the distributor and ignition coil.
Hopefully someone will provide the specific wiring instructions for a B13
and we will append the FAQ.

In a B14 the install is very straightforward. The only additonal changes
necessary are rewiring the distributor and one additional 2-wire harness.
You also need to wire the two VVL solenoids. Instructions for wiring the
distributor can be found here. Information about RPM triggers can be
found here.

The DE transmission bolts right onto the VE. In fact many of the DE items
are a direct VE bolt on. They share the same block design.

Steve Foltz, aka "98sr20ve", created a fantastic install resource with
pictures of installation in his '98 SE which you can view here.

**Here is a link for many additional VE part numbers.

Where can I get headers and other JDM stuff for my new VE?
JDM Spec Performance Good site for aftermarket JDM.

What modifications can I perform to make my VE faster?
You can use the standard SR20DE exhaust such as of a ca¡SR20VE FAQ: Read This First!

Not sure if this question has been asked before but does anybody know
what is the market price for the SR20VE and a good workshop that can do
the conversion onto a N16 Sentra.

Well its always good to do some research first. I may not be doing this
yet but I'm sure some others (you know who you are Wink) might already be
contemplating it. So it is beneficial for all.

Techie, if my memory serves me well, I did happen to see a post regarding
a SR20VE halfcut somewhere in Ipoh for RM5,600. That is, well, if my
memory serves me correct Smile

P.S. Techie U can officially take over my place for N16 transplant white
mice. Big Smile
