About Nissan SR20Det Engine for Sale

SR20DET is regarded as one of the best engines ever produced by the Japanese automobile giant, Nissan. A member of Nissan’s SR family of engines, this Nissan SR20DET Engine for sale at find auto parts online was produced in the time period of 1989-2002. It is a turbocharged version of the SR20DE engine and is a replacement of the CA18DET engine.

Applications of SR20DET Engine

  • Nissan Silvia (S13, S14, S15): This series is the most notable and common application of the SR20DET, while others are simply derivatives of this series. The engine was cited as offering an impressive power to weight ratio and good mechanical longevity, reasons that cement the Silvia as a fan favourite.
  • Nissan 180SX/200SX/240SX: This was essentially the case depending on the market, with cars being fitted with the SR20DET especially in markets such as Japan and Europe. These models were infamous for their use in drifting and any other related automobile sport.
  • Nissan Pulsar GTI-R (N14): A conservative hatchback was equipped with an SR20DET in a transverse type to increase the car’s reliability and offering high performance and rallying features.
  • Classic Datsun Vehicles: Some fans replace the capacities of new SR20DET engines into older Datsun 510s and 240Zs cars to give those old cars the strong and dependable engines they need.
  • Toyota AE86: The ae86 is lightweight with a neatly balanced chassis, but is immensely satisfying when having an SR20det injected into what is essentially a drift car .
  • Mazda MX-5 Miata: The Miata with its lightweight has a perfect pairing with the SR20DET combo to make a sleek and powerful sports car.
  • Kit Cars: Because of its dimensions and power output, it is a favourite among users in kit cars to create the right power to reliability ratio.

Features of SR20DET Engine

  • Turbocharger: Another feature which is incorporated in this SR20Det engine for sale  is the use of a turbocharger which assists in increasing the engine power. There were several options of engines, each of which was equipped with varying turbochargers Garrett T25 and T28 models.
  • Intercooler: The automobile built with an intercooler to cool the air compressed with the turbocharger thus boost the efficiency and power of the factory.
  • Fuel Injection: EFI, a system allowing for a better spraying of fuel and consequently, better driving performance and fuel economy.
  • Engine Control Unit (ECU): This is usually an enhanced version of the engine control unit ECU equipped in tis  SR20Det engine for sale, which controls the engine’s fuel and ignition systems for improved functionality and customization.
  • DOHC: Dual Overhead Camshafts in this are associated with increased air flow and efficiency by offering more accurate valves control.
  • 4-Valve per Cylinder: Requires a 16-valve arrangement of the head (4 valves per cylinder) to improve the volume of the drawn air mass, ignition of the air fuel mixture, and engine power output.
  • Variable Valve Timing (VVT): Some models of SR20DET include the S14 and S15 that come with the Nissan’s VVT that controls valves to increase engine performance and efficient fuel consumption.
  • Oil Squirters: Oil squirters directed at the piston helps in cooling of the pistons which are very important for high performance engines as they need to run at very high temperatures.
  • Efficient Cooling System: Organized to reflect the capacities of the greater heat load due to turbocharging, thus maintaining stability and dependability.
  • Forged Components: In some models, forged internals may be of high quality, allowing for some increases in power due to aftermarket modifications.
  • Power Output: ‘Stock’ power output is between 202 to 250 horsepower, but I presume it varies with model and market. Between 203 and 275 Nm (150 and 203 lb-ft) torque, which enables smooth acceleration in numerous revs. Between 6000-7000 RPM, which is surprisingly high for a turbocharged engine, yet this, in turn, would give quite a flat power curve.
  • VTC (Variable Timing Control): found in the later models that included the S14 and S15 models, helping to advance the performance and efficiency bar through adjusting the timing of the intake camshaft. Spark ignition for better coils on plug efficiency in On-Plug Ignition System.

Here at Find Auto Parts Online, you can find this absolute beast on an engine made by the japanese. This SR20Det engine for sale on Find Auto Parts Online is the perfect match for those who have a soft spot for drifting or motosports or whatnot, the engine is highly compatible.
