i think the thing i would like to see most is someone developing tuning software for the HR16DE engine in the Note/versa sedan as i know it has a lot of locked up potential just waiting for the right tune to come along. the engine itself benefits greatly from breathing mods such as injen's short ram intake which immediately generates another 4whp over stock which is pretty impressive for an engine of this size and just further reinforces the fact that nissan dialed back the performance greatly when it came to this engine and what i believe it is capable of. the other thing i would like to see is a wider selection of handling mods such as coil overs, springs, and also sway bars as when i was testing my setup out on the track at willow springs i noticed even with a strut tower brace, underbody chassis brace and the Tanabe NF210 springs when it came to dealing with high speed turns at a certain speed there was a bit of understeer still present in the chassis, so i would like to see both rear and front sway bars being developed if possible. the only other mods i would like to see off the top of my head is to finally see the development of a true cold air intake for the Note as the short ram from injen is good, but when it comes to dealing with heat inside the engine compartment it makes for a very poor choice to keep intake air temperatures stable which is critical for getting the most performance out of the engine. oh and lastly it would be so much appreciated by both myself and the versa sedan community if we could actually get a proper performance header developed for the HR16DE engine :D
What note-ified said. The versa is already a fun car to drive and toss around, now we just need more after market performance companies to believe in it to and help use make a movement. I'll even let my car be a guinea pig test car for the 2nd gen sedans. :grin:grin:wink

Also forgot to mention for the manual guys we also need some upgraded components such as lighter flywheel, upgraded clutch and such
short shifter would be a plus! but it would be good to see anything come out.

yeah definitely would be nice if we could get some low compression pistons made for this engine to build it for turbo cause as it is the one turbo kit they make runs pretty low boost to keep the engine at a safe level of power.
that'll be dope, i'd boost my versa, hell, supercharge it even.

also, some carbon fiber parts would be a very plus!!

I just want extended LCA's and a harness bar lol or better yet a 6 point bolt in cage with a harness bar. Like the Cusco ones for subaru's and what not. I wanted to build my own intake manifold because I don't like that the stock one wraps around the head, but if someone made a reasonably priced one that would be nice!!
cusco has a front strut bar in their inventory for the first gen sedans, you'll have to email their R&D department.

I have a sedan so nothing for me
i feels you on that, just waiting and waiting.

seibon is looking into make parts for the sedan, but isn't really looking towards making anything now, probably next year is what I've been told.

Came up with another item I would like to see for the note....window visors and carbon fiber hatch and front hood...cause man the stock hood is heavy for how small it is
That'll be cool with some carbon fiber front fenters. I thought of making long tubed headers. Its possible to make them for the versa, becsuse the headers are shrt and run down to the down pipe before the resonator then to the exhaust and axle back.

Hey Guys...sorry I've been quite lately! Been working on getting some parts available for our Versa Notes!

Whiteline Suspension has sent me a front sway bar to test fit...should hopefully have that on next week...stay tuned for results!

XForce Varex Mufflers - I'll be testing this unique muffler on my Versa Note as well...interesting concept by this Australian company. We are now official XForce dealers! Stay tuned for pics and video to come soon!

XForce Varex Single Tip Oval Muffler ? 2.5? Inlet & 2.5? Outlet | Nissan Race Shop
if you need a sedan for a test fit, let me know :wink

that muffler looks cool, and might be cool sounding as well, by the pictures of it.
