I dont think anything will ever be available. Just buy a short ram intake, universal and get an exhaust shop to do custom exhaust. The car has little to no potential with that engine, I just dont see aftermarket companies embracing it

I hope they make something it is a really popular new model so it's not like you won't have a ton of people wanting is with so many kids getting it..the intake is just in a new spot so the fit will be off with the old ones

wish I could find out about the racing HR16DE that has 160hp :D. I've read about it online.

Ya probably not, it would be too close to the sentra. From what the rumors are is that there is going to be a turbo version of the hatchback though which would open up so many doors for more aftermarket parts for the versas. I know japan will get it (of course) so I'll be keeping my fingers crossed. :eatpopcorn:

They're probably gonna do the base version with the hr16 and then the mr16ddt for the high-end model. Still, we're only talking like 175 hp out of that engine, but if the cars light enough and more fun to drive it could be a decent car.

Don't think so...

I am doubtful of that much HP. The Versa is "lesser" than the Sentra. So, I believe, before they even give that much power or modification to the Versa (which isn't supposed to be a performance car by any means (initially debuted for its economical size, room, etc) )they will give it to the Sentra.

It'd be interesting though.

Cool. Is the new hatch going to be 1.6 as well?
If it follows the path of the Tiida it will be 1.8 with a GTS trim that is a 1.6 Turbo. A question I'd like to ask all car manufacturers though is although a Turbo is fairly cheap per performance gain they always go down in engine size to get the turbo so you don't get that big of a boost in power between the trims. I've noticed most companies follow this path for any turbo trim offered on a low-mid range vehicle. I suppose the smaller engine means they spend less and since you pay the premium price for a turbo it probably costs them less but you fork over 2-4k more for that turbo. :(

This is exactly what they do... :'\
