Nissan SR20-DET Block Resurfacing
John Edwards discusses some of the reasons why aluminum blocks require resurfacing and how it's done on the Sunnen HBS-1300 @ Costa Mesa R&D Automotive Machine 949.631.6376
Failed motor swap
I finally got my sr20det motor swap finished after several months of work, it ended up having a really nice knock on at least 3 cylinders, if not all 4 cylinders, you can hear the knock at just over half of the video, I purchased this motor from jdmenginescorp.com, do not buy from them!!!

Datsun 510 SR20de Motor
This is the first time the car moved by itself in over a year since I took on this project. I can finally see some daylight. The motor is an SR20de from a JDM S14 with VTC so I am curious if I will be happy with the results of a better header and some cams or go FI. But that will be much later down the road. Here is a small clip with open Exhaust. This week it is going to the Exhaust shop. Oh BTW my wifes car is in the shot too.
SR20DET Compressor Surge
Compressor surge is a phenomenon experienced when Boost pressure inside the intake tract builds up and has no convenient relief method. This is usually caused from the throttle plate closing quickly. Changing load conditions (off throttle) resulting in varying amounts of Exhaust gas can also simulate such conditions.
In such a case, the pressure takes the only way out through the turbocharger compressor housing. The unique sound is caused by the pressure charge encountering the spinning compressor wheel on its escape from the engine.
Compressor surge goes by many other names such as compressor stall, turbo dose or dosing, pigeon, turbo flutter/chatter and sometimes mistakenly wastegate chatter.
The car was thoroughly warmed up before filming. The Boost controller has been disabled allowing the car to run directly off wastegate pressure. The body panels have been removed due to a slowly progressing facelift. For more info on my car:
Props to Salman, my cousin, for introducing me firsthand to this wonderful, ridiculous phenomenon and also to Quail from sxoc for doing this s**t ages before I did. ;-D
