I am a lucky owner of a 2002 SE-R spec V. Now the car itself has much potential, but w/ little assistance or parts yet. I was wondering if anybody could give me some insight on how I could turbocharge my car.
Zak91SE-R said:Um... exactly what don't you believe? The fact that the connecting rods are super thin? The realtive weakness of the block? The top ring lands being so close to the top of the piston? The softer-than-normal valve springs? You're awfully misguided if you think people here are saying the QR25 is not all that great for boost just out of spite. There's a lot of factual evidence to back it up, and the hole will be in your block if you choose to ignore it.
So rather than assume everybody's lying, why don't you do a little research and find out for yourself? Wouldn't that be easier than putting a hole in your block because you were too stubborn to deal with the facts in the first place? Of course, far be it from me to prevent anybody from blowing up their own engine, so please do boost the hell out of it as soon as humanly possible.
Some people just have to learn the hard way.
Once again, why *exactly* can't you believe it? And while we're at it, when I say the valve springs are soft, for example - why do you think that's an opinion, when it's actually a fact? Same goes for the thin rods and the other stuff. Fact, not opinion. If you choose to ignore the currently available *factual* information, that's your choice, but try to at least recognize which information is factual and which is opinion.I can't believe anyone that say's it's a weak motor from the getgo. As they say, everyone's got an opinion.
Mike Kojima who is on this board and JWT took one apart many many months ago. Dave Coleman has as well. Those are facts.Fast240-T said:Why exactly don't I belive it???? Well why do you? Have you taken the QR25DE apart and seen it themselves?? As a matter of fact has anyone HERE???? I am very curious. Everyone likes to believe what they hear from the net. I am closing my ears from people who are telling me of something they heard about. I will keep this site update on the pics and specs of what I will be doing to the QR25DE motor. We will see how weak this motor really is.
Yeah, what they said... JWT and Mike Kojima for example, who is an engineer at Nissan in addition to being one of the smartest people I know and a friend of mine. You closing your ears about this is exactly what I was alluding to in my previous post. It's not going to help you out any. This isn't internet gossip we're talking about here, this is solid information from people who have taken the engine apart, and know exactly what's in it, and what will work and what won't.Everyone likes to believe what they hear from the net. I am closing my ears from people who are telling me of something they heard about.

If you really want to do it right and NOT blow up your engine, you'd do well to start asking questions rather than assuming people are lying to you. There are people here who can tell you what you need to know to do it right.
