To my understanding, the second gen Versas have the HR16de engine, while the Juke has the MR16ddt engine. Two completely different engines, however versions of the Nissan Tiida have had the MR16ddt installed from factory. Meaning, in theory, the turbo engine could easily mount into the versa. Actually, I just checked wikipedia and there was a version of the Juke in Europe that had the HR16de and made the same amount of power. This further supports the Hr16de to MR16ddt swap in our Versas.

I have had the idea to do this for some years now, but there is an extreme lack of information about things like this on the internet at the moment. One of these days I will get both of these engines side by side and document what is possible and what isn't. I assume it would be as easy as swapping an mr20de into a first gen versa, but who knows.

Another option is the turbo versions in the HR family. Some parts may swap over easily for a cheap, oem fitting turbo set up.
