    K11 SR20VET possible?

    Hi guys, I know, this thread again. So just been reading through nik0lai's build thread of his GTiR SR20DET powered 4WD micra and the concept is exactly what I've been trying to piece together in my head for a long time, it makes sense to use a GTiR power train rather than an evo or whatever...

    K11 SR20DE+T? A return to micra's

    So my BMW has to put it bluntly #### itself, sold it and got a cool 9k burning a hole in my pocket, the sensible voice in my head says "buy a WRX STI" but the other voice is wanting a ridiculously powerful micra. Here's where my question comes in, how much money are we talking to at the very...

Ive wrapped my interior but it's in a matte style wrap and I'm looking...

    Evo 6 powered micra?

    So I had a rethink of the silly idea of the RB26DETT swap and tried to think of something more compact and 4WD. First obvious 2 were the evo or WRX sti, I'm not personally a fan of the sti's boxer engine so though I'd steer more towards the evo engine, now I'm planning to buy an evo VI or VII in...

    GT-R engine and gearbox swap? Is it even possible?

    I'm going to have to do a lot more research into this but just a quick question, obviously everything is going to be different like mounts etc but just wondering if an RB26DETT would fit in the K11 engine bay, battery etc can be moved to the boot, but as it's a 4WD gearbox the front wheels need...

    SR20DE conversion?

    Seen the engine code thingy around and about and finally thought i'd let out the question, what engine is this and is it possible to swap this into a K11 and it to pass emissions on MOT, if yes, I feel some work coming on :)

    insurance return :D

    right basically i'm on a young drivers policy where you have a tracker fitted that monitors how well you're driving, which on a bog standard 1.0l K11 isn't much trouble as you can't go fast enough to drive 'badly', but anyway just had a review and got 170 quid back (Y) all money to put towards...

    the car ... decisions

    Ok here's my situation, I can save 10,000 pounds in 3 years (if i'm good, lol) so here's my decision I either do loads to the micra, spend 1000 on the micra this year then buy a skyline R34 after 3, or, spend 1000 this year and save for a skyline 2000GTR (epicly cool). Now the R34 is easily...

    plans for my K11

    being as i've done one for mechanical thought i'd do one for body, at the front putting in some black top grilles and cutting out the middles, possibly meshing, taking out the small scoops either side of the main grille and meshing that, and either painting the big grille black with a purple...
