few ?'s for you.

im thinking about picking up a set of megan racing springs just because they are the least expensive and offer the biggest drop. but im concerned about the spring rate. is it stiff? or squishy? the stiffer the better..

secondly, has there been anything done for a short shifter? has anyone tried cutting their shifter down a bit? lol just curious

what do we have in the way of tuning software? both for the ecm of the versa and computer software? if there was a program i could download to do my own tuning, i'd like to know about it.

has anyone bought anything from impul? i like their stuff but i cant seem to find a way to purchase anything off of their site. their contacts page isnt working on my comp.

has anyone played with the idea of a rear mount turbo? it looks like there is adequate space for it.. only real problem i see is fiting both pipes in our exhaust channel.. but it would eliminate the need for an intercooler and running a low boost set up would require very little done to the motor itself. Just a thought to play with thoughts? comments? answers?

Cutting it will make the shifter shorter but no make it a short shifter if that makes sense . Meaning the throw is not really going to be significantly reduced but just the height of the shifter. I have never seen how to take the knob off. Is it the same as older cars where it's screwed on?

You can look into UpRev for tuning. They have a tuners package I believe that will allow you to tune the car yourself. Other then that I have no idea what is out there.

There was someone else on here who brought up the rear mount turbo thing. There was a thread on it. I say go for it if you have the funds. An intercooler isn't really an issue. You can tuck a sidemount in the wheel well and it will be adequate enough for low boost.

Racingline Performance was working on a prototype SS, long while back, havent heard anything about it since. As for the rear mount, Squires Turbo Systems have made a bunch for muscle cars as well as universal kits for any application.

i've seen STS kits before.. and as i continue thinking about it, even though an intercooler isn't really necessary, it really wouldnt be difficult at all to put one in.. look under your rear bumper, towards the left side. if we set the turbo so that the intake was facing up towards the RL taillight, the filter would be (seemingly) higher than the filter on like the AEM cold air intake.. and there would be virtually no heat back there.. just put a turndown exhaust tip on the exhaust side of the turbo.. this seems VERY do-able and not that difficult... the hardest part would be getting the best tune i believe.. anyway, megan racing spring rates? a way to get hold of impul?

an IC all the way at the back of the vehicle would need a really long run back to the Throttle body. This is not feasible in my mind. Tuning should easily be handled by UpRev. I think if your serious you should contact them and see what they say. They have worked on several MR18's and should within seconds be able to say if they can make enough changes to the stock ECU to handle a low boost application.

well i was actually thinking of a front mount intercooler. running the piping from the turbo, up to the front mount intercooler, and up to the throttle body, that way there are still only 2 main pipes that run almost the length of the vehicle.

i contacted racing line the other day about it. I havent heard back about it applix yer up there maybe you can get them to prototype it on yer car if yers is manual i know they had it in the install manual blacked out but they never came out with it so i contacted them the other day maybe if enough of us contact them they will put it into production i just want the clunkyness gone in the shifter..

VersaMG08 They break down their new members and mold them into other NICO clones, it's an endless cycle. If you don't obey, either blend in or get recycled.

It'd be great to test it on my car, but to drive to Vancouver for it from Toronto doesnt seem feasible lol.
