Ok how about the ford lima engine designed in 1970 and made until 2001. 60-205hp and 70-250lb ft of torque ranging in engines from 1.3-2.5l. Bulet proof the hardest 4 cylinder to kill.Lol comparing to Honda. That is pointless, it's Honda, they put way more effort into engineering than Nissan for their motors. Totally different, many Nissan motors put out way less than Honda's, cc to cc. The Spec V QR25 should put out way more than 175, but it doesn't. Rather disappointing for a bloody 2.5, very disappointing.
What is your definition of cheap?Lol just do it. Best way to learn is to just do it. You can do it cheap, don't let others discourage you.
