I would say the VH45DE from 1990-1995, which had variable valve timing (which was dropped in 1996). Actual horsepower (not rated horsepower) is approx. 44 horsepower more than the VH41DE and torque is 52 ft./lbs. greater than the VH41DE. I say "actual horsepower" for the VH45DE because it was rated at 278HP due to a requirement that import engines were not to excede 280HP. So, Nissan rated the engine without VTC.

No VK45? Or too many electronics to worry about?

im not really worried about having to many electronics the way i see it its going to be a headache anyway. i was thinking vh41 or vh45 becaues they seem to be easier to source here in new zealand. what would be the benefits of running the vk45? power ratings etc???

I'm just a bigger fan of the newer VK series...Just for the raw power stock. The VH is MUCH better at modding though.
