View Full Version : N15 SSS SR20VE

Hey guys I've been on here a little while and owned this car for just on 2 years so i thought I may as well throw up a build thread :)
The car is a 2000 model N15 SSS pulsar. In june/july of this year I replaced the good old sr20de with an sr20ve.
I bought the motor with a brand new bottom end and about 75k on the head.

Current mods to the car are as follows:
Bikirom daughterboard ecu
Nismo clutch
VZR flywheel
Whiteline rear swaybar
Modified 20V extractors into 3" dump into hi flow cat and 2 1/4" mandrel bent stainless catback
K&N pod that is soon to be boxed
VZR grille

Next on the list are:
BC BR coilovers (fucker looks like a tractor atm!)
LSD!!! possibly 70v gearbox and hydraulic clutch conversion
20v/n1 cams
Brian Crower springs and retainers
Adjustable cam gears
N1 rocker cover
16x8 +15 XXR 501 wheels
VZR lip

This car has been really good to me but is currently a little underpowered...
Is still running the base map that came on the bikirom as far as full throttle goes and is making 108kw atw. Lots of tuning has been done on partial throttle and low rpm however and it feels amazing! So much more torque than the de! WOT is still lacking though. Also, because this motor uses the 20v pistons, compression is 11:1 rather than 10.3:1 in regular VE's. Its not much difference but there is really good throttle response!
Recently took it to willowbank and ran a [email protected] with a !!2.4!! 60'.
The 60 and the mph are the two real let downs. Should be running at least 97mph with a better tune, and with better tyres and lower pressures a 60 of 2.2ish is definately achievable.
Anyhoo, piccy time, any thoughts and opinions are welcomed! :)
Thanks to trevor and lachlan for a couple of the photos! :D

Cheers, Dan.

Update: car has now done a 14.8 down the 1/4, although with less mph than the 14.9.
Also, the big news is that I had only the exhaust high cam kicking in for the first 9 months of driving. The intake cam wasn't being pressurised by oil and therefore wasn't switching! I have recently performed the mods to fix this issue and the car feels a lot stronger up top. No new numbers yet but I'm hoping for a 14.4ish and ~115kw with a re tune :)
