1994 Nissan NXR Coupe 20VE Swap

That's right folks. Autech is back.

My brother will soon be swapping in a 20VE with VZR LSD gearbox and 16ve cams into his little NXR Coupe.

He has all the bits sitting there ready to go it's just a case of chucking it in and seeing how she goes. He managed to pick up a VZR with a blown engine for $1000 so will be taking the ECU, cams, brakes and anything else he needs from it to swap it over to the NX. He's had the 20VE sitting in a shed for a few months, it's got a fair few k's on it but we're thinking it'll be ok.

I'll get some pics up as it goes ahead.

Nice one, looking forward to seeing it,

All SR engines are good for high mileage, remember my old DE which went for 220k miles.

So over the weekend did the rear pads n rotors. Going to do the fronts this weekend and fit the bigger exhaust. Basically all support work is going to be done prior to the swap and then we go for it and wack the engine n GBox in it hopefully in a day with another full day to trouble shoot any electrical niggles.

Pics to come

Sounds like a good plan, Are you looking to upgrade Injectors to run the 16VE cams in the 20VE? or going down the remap route.

Last weekend did the rear rotors and tried to fit the VZR exhaust which was sadly too long for a straight bolt up. Will be able to cut a length out of her though n put it on at some stage.

He's got some SR20DET injectors all ready for it, good to go!

So exhaust is done.

Ended up having to replace all the suspension as the struts were all fucked. My brother almost had a head on collision due to the rear ones causing his arse end to let go over a bump so thats sorted. New wider rims installed he just needs some better rubber on them and we will be swapping in the 20VE with 16 cams and LSD box. Woohoo!
