@Storm i though you were well versed in the art of sr20ve. That is the engine that makes 205hp stock and comes with 20v cams.

I thought it was 200 and the regular VE was 187, ahh well. Just saw it pop up and saw the price, was like

It has all sorts of different internals parts.

Back to 8 CW crank with a girdle, a 7800 RPM redline, a more linear powerband rather than peak power, 70mm electric throttle, 34.3mm inconel (lighter material) valves that are back-cut 4.5mm from factory to decrease friction, 5.5mm valve stems (less air flow restriction), the head ports are about 1/8" taller and wider with a smoother taper and a longer dividing wall, uses the metal head gasket form factory, and only has one Solenoid for VVL.

Kinda different from the other VVL engines.

Haha, I just bought one. It's in my long term goals for the car. Maybe not a 20V, but a VE setup for sure. OEM plus style!

Prices on these are staying pretty consistent. How hard are these to install/tune due to the DBW set-up?

3600 is a lot, but the 6 speed trans is a definite bonus. Would yield better acceleration as well as better MPGs as a daily.

Mmmm 20v motors need to be more common.

I agree. 205HP stock FTW!!!! So we could assume that with a good tune, intake, JMR header or equally good equivalent, 3" exhaust, X tb plenum, some pullies, Fidanza flywheel or something and MSD window box - could put down like 230+ WHP?

I would have considered trading my SR20 vehicles in this photo for a 99 SE-L with the setup in the original post (except the Altima)

You can find a better deal. I can get the 20v with full 6spd drivetrain for 2,800. I get sr20ves for 750-800 and avenirs for about the same. Keep hunting and you can find a killer deal. Buy in bulk and you can save.
