First off i put this thread in k12 because looking at the Qashqai engine it appears to be the same HR16DE in as the K12.
Anyhow the Qashqai has a greater output compared to the K12. Fair enough its only a hand full of bhp and a few lb's of torque.
Does anybody know what Nissan have altered...
is this wise?
to me it seems unsafe as the wheel will have been built to work at its best (strength wise) at the weight it is.
so reducing its weight will obv be an improvemet for the engine but how safe will it be? is it likey to break causing damage?
so the question is good idea/bad...

what i've been thinking about recently is a hr16de powered k11 :)
i think it would be an excellent idea, one i might indulge in when i'm done with my k12.

they are fitted to standard k11 subframes so are a straight swap for k11 seats.
they are in excellent condition no rips/tears. 1 year old.

basically came out of work at dinner time to find a non staff member had parked in the staff car park causing damage of £300-600 to my car in scratches/scuffs/small dents. no note they just ####ed off!

what are the differences between our hr16de and the jap hr15de? i know the cc is different and the hr15 will run on higher octane fuel and things like that, but are they any major differences?
i've been looking at the two engines and i think some tuning parts should be compatible with the...
