Faq About Sr20ve

Footnote; Information courtesy of sr20forum.com

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
Storm Performance in CA (925) 895-9793 & FL (954) 987-7355
Soko Engines (800) 338-7656 or (800) 598-3535

I need some parts for my VE, do you have parts codes?
13020 1N503 SR16VE intake cam
13020 1N509 SR16VE exhaust cam
11044 1N500 SR20VE head gasket
12200 2J200 SR20VE crankshaft
13500 1N501 SR20VE front cover and oil pump
14036 1N500 SR20VE exhaust manifold gasket

13020 8H600 SR20VET intake cam yes the turbo cams!
13020 8H610 SR20VET exhaust cam
11110-2J210 SR20VE oil pan. This is the same as the 2000-2001 SR20DE
*These are JDM Nissan part numbers and will not come up in your local dealerships computers. Some dealers have connections to get them, such as Courtesy Nissan in Texas and SR20Development in California. Call them for prices.
**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 Greddy, HKS, etc. and CAI (cold air induction) like the AEM, Hotshot or Place Racing. The SR20VE is a low port motor. You will need an intake for a low port (94) B13, or any B14 SR20 car. The B15 SR20 intake does not have both intake hoses the earlier and VE motors do.

A standard DE header will choke the VE as there is about 1/8"-1/4" overlap on the exhaust ports on the VE. Hotshot is currently developing a VE specific header to resolve this issue. Fujitsubo and Impul in Japan also make headers specifically for the VE. Jim Schumacher, "Shoes59", currently has a Fujitsubo header on his VE and will be sharing dyno results in the near future.

Other options include installing SR16VE cams in the SR20VE for a guesstimated increase of 18 crank HP. If you are an SR16VE owner you can install a 2001 Nissan SE 4 counterweight crank with new rods and pistons to increase displacement to 2.0L. Specifics on the rods and pistons are currently being tested and we will provide more information as it is available.

Where can I find more information about VE engines?
98sr20ve Steve Foltz's VE install resource.
Gonzonx Carl "Bubba" Zinetti's turbocharged SR20VE NX2000.
Nibbana's SE-R Chuck Nibbana's SR20VE powered 200SX.
NPM Articles SR20VE Installation by Justin McClanahan.
Nissan Primera The SR20VE powered Nissan Primera.
Nissan X-Trail The SR20VET powered Nissan X-Trail.
Pulsar VZ-R The Nissan Pulsar with the esteemed N1 engine.
Pulsar VZ-R II More info on the Pulsar N1.
Shoes59 Jim Schumacher's 94 B13 VE photo album.
SR20VE powered 240SX Highly modified SR20VE.
VVL engines Nissan site about VE engines.
VZ-R N1 Another N1 site with some Tech Data

What kind of 1/4 mile time can I expect with an SR20VE?
Average 1/4 mile times for a full interior SR20VE powered SE-R are 13.8 - 14.2. Forum member "bigtom" currently has the fastest known SR20VE running a 12.8!!

Anything I have left out you would like to see added to the FAQ??
Please Email or PM me ! thanks !

Jim no longer owns a VE.

[QUOTE=LIUSPEED]Other options include installing SR16VE cams in the SR20VE for a guesstimated increase of 18 crank HP.[/QUOTE=LIUSPEED]

On my car it was 5 hp peak/12hp at 7800rpm. This is wheel hp. I know 12wheel = about 18 crank. Most people talk about HP increase in the peak HP area.

92 240SX Project Car.

The HS header will work, but the ports don't line up directly. The header that fits both motors is not out yet.

so, can anyone suggest a good importer of the sr20ve? AND a question that's not on here, will the 2001-up ve go into a B14 without too much hassle?

Thumbs up Nissan Primera 97/98 (sr20ve)

Where (website) can i go to see the specs on the sr20ve powered primera 97/98 from which this engine originated? Would appreciate info. Have the Japanese used these engines in any racing series? I live in Jamaica in the West Indies and i'm currently having one installed in my 1994 gts Sunny. That's the right hand drive version of your '94 b13 se-r classic body style. Those engines aren't so expensive as it is in the States, but they are also pretty rare. Anyway, would like to hear from anyone who can find that primera.-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

I was also curious if the 2001 + VE would work without too much hassle. Also, i live where 91 octane is the highest. Will the VE work on 91 like a K20 as long as timing will allow it. If i get a JWT ECU i still want to be able to run 91 octane

Above you mentioned the SR20VE as being produced from 2001-present. Is Nissan still using this engine in current (2005) models? I thought the SR series engines were being replaced by the QR series?
