Don't know if a thread was opened before but do you know of anyone or have you ever installed a NOS in a Versa?
And i'm not talking of these stupid videos on the web where you see the bottle strapped in the car with tie-rap.
Know this is possibly not the best way to make hp, but i could get a kit for nothing... (new kit), and would try it after warranty is over....
And please nothing with the " I heard of.. or someone told me that..."

thanks!

I believe SEMA did it on a show car. However the stock internals of the V would not handle NOS.

if you have a new engine sitting around, sure. lol. It could handle it, in a small dose. If CVT i wouldnt dream of it, bye bye tranny. Dont go overkill and itll be fine. I mean a quick 40 shot here and there. But much more and death to engine will occur i bet

I have never seen a 1.8 rod. But there is some pics of the mr20 rods out there online. The 2.0 can handle some boost it would seem out of the box, so nos could be done as well. The 1.8 rods are different, but i assume of similar construction. Now a turbo 2.0 will be my goal. Or SC. Im leaning SC

very nice. i want to the 2.0 swap with the turbo but well see how it goes, from what i hear it is cheaper for just a whole engine but if i can just swap the bottom end i dont think it should be that much

Yea i work for nissan so its different for me. If you can find a motor at scrapyard its much cheaper. But make sure to go 09+. The coils are different in 07-08 than versa so the connectors dont fit

off topic much? anyhoo, you could prolly do small shots, if you have cvt installing a tranny cooler will help with the additional heat. according to speed force racing, its not torque or hp that makes the cvt go boom, its heat. hence why the sentra se-r has an additional tranny cooler.

1.8 with the 4 speed trans, i got the NOS kit, cost me nothing except labour (did couple of audio install for a friend...), i'll possibly keep everything in the box 'til i get an engine/trans that can handle this (another car?).
Kit is a ZEX 82030, adjustable 50-200hp.
I'll do the MR20 swap before this....
Thanks for the advice!

I would wait for another car. I would be more worried about the auto tranny than the engine. Its not a common tranny for the model, so i just dont know about how strong it is
