Have just bought a SR20VET motor from a Nissan X-trail (280HP). This motor is going to go into my P12 Primera, which will free up the SR20VE (204HP) currently in the primera for my Exa!

Dunno if it'll be much use to anyone... It'll be a bit of a 1 off build due to being North/South RWD.

Na, going RWD with an SR20 is just a bolt in job. Not many prople know that actually...

Some progress, kind of. I have a motor! The P12 is currently going through its SR20VET swap.

Turbo motor has gone in with a custom single mass flywheel replacing the worn dual mass unit.

Decided it's taking too long... I'm now planning to take the path of least resistance to get it going faster.

Needed to build a new garage, so sent the car away for some work!
