Dyno in Session: Nissan Zaurus Jr - SR20DET Powered
http://www.tweakit.net - Back in 1987 Nissan unveiled the Nissan Saurus
prototype, a road car, which never made it into production. However Nissan
Motorsport division, Nismo, quietly worked away on their version of the
The later and more powerful version, a racecar came with an SR18DE, 1.8L
4cyl making 110kW at the flywheel, about 80-90kW at the wheels. Which, in
a 510kg race car is a quick little package. However as it turns out, the
engineers at Nismo thought ahead... The car has a Subaru FWD gearbox,
mounted in the rear with an adapter plate with mounting holes for both FWD
and RWD Nissan SR engines. The only SR Series motor designed for RWD is
the SR20DE and SR20DET, so when the owner dropped an S15 Silvia SR20DET
(2.0L turbo) engine in, everything
bolted up in a flash and the car purred in gratitude.
With a PWR Water to Air Intercooler, Haltech Platinum Sport
1000 ECU, Haltech Racepak Dash, turbosmart Supersonic Blow Off Valve, Open Exhaust and Slicks... it's now a serious Super
Sprint contender. 185kW at the wheels, it's not exactly massive as SR20 turbos go. However put into perspective,
the power to weight ratio is 2x better than the 2012 facelift Nissan
GT-R... the one with 390 flywheel kW. So when I say that the car has
finished on the podium each time it's been out... no surprises?
Yes, the customer is talking about adding more power... I'm told more than
double the power is definitely more than double the fun... Add a bigger turbo, some more Boost... lets just say there's no limit to how
much fun this car will provide.

Just getting it prepped for some possible track time the next day.
I scared teh wifey a little lol.
The engine is all stock minus the air intake and 4-2-1 header and Exhaust. The power steering pump, water pump and
a/c compressor have been removed so the only thing the engine is turning is
the alternator. Water pump is electric.
Nissan SR20 dyno tuning - Adicted Performance
Adam's Nissan SR20 pumps out over 500hp on pump fuel and even more on race
octane at Adicted Performance. The 2L engine features a forged bottom end,
upgraded cams and valve-train components and is Boosted by a Garrett GTX35-63R turbo and Haltech Platinum EFI system. Built to
be a reliable street engine, the Nissan will make its way into a Datsun
510 SR20VE DYNO
This 510 has a a SR20 with the VVL cylinder head, ITB's and using LS1 coil
packs. We wired up and tuned the Haltch E6X. It put down 175WHP and 145WTQ,
with no less than 170HP from 6500-8000 RPM, using a really small turbo header because of packaging constraints. A
full header will no doubt open this thing up. Enjoy.
