Welcome to the forums Carlos.

320+bhp on a normal aspirated will be cool,eh? And imagine revving up to 8,500!!!!!

Guessing on the configuration: take the VE (180-190 hp), add very hot cams, headers, intake, injectors, etc. and you will be pushing a lot. But then remember, that is a racing developed engine. The only problem will be life on that engine, only a few hours.

I think in the Rev-Up mag. are the specifications, I will check and tell you later.

:rambo:

Having watched the 99 BTCC series, I would say that the Primera won it mainly on superior handling, I don't remember it having any more power on the straights than any of the other works cars.

well if you want to buy a video go here.

as for how they got that much power, the trick was that they had a custom made intake and exhaust manifolds made and then flipped the head of the engine. The intake would start right behind the grill. They also tilted the engine forward about 10-15*. This way the flow of the air would be almost a straight line from intake to exhaust tip. Then of course the did the normal engine stuff: polish/port, cams, lightweight connecting rods, upgraded valvetrain and valves, and an engine balance. After all that, you get one kick ass 300hp engine.

I personally still have some questions about how they got the engine to work with the head flipped as the timing chain and belts wouldn't work. The only way I see it working is by just flipping the whole engine around. One other thing to mention, they don't have alternators in those cars. they run straight from the battery.

Don´t get the wrong impression.

I know how to get he must power of a engine and i know how they race, but since they where SR20DE engines, i´d love to know for example: The differential (who made it), the custom intake and exhaust (so we can make replicas for drag/street use), wich flywheel they´d use, gas pump, MSD ?, sparks, injectors, engine setup...e, ...e, ...e, so WE SR20DE´s CAN START KICKING SOME A** ON THE STREET.

Only imagine: Mark 3 differential & flywheel. Would that blow my engine? or maybe some Mark 3 replica intake & exhaust. And a extra 12HP by air....e, ...e, ...e.

Get that info.

CRANFIELD RECEIVES REPLICA TOURING CAR

Nissan has provided Cranfield University with a replica of its 1999 British Touring Car Championship (BTCC) winning Primera for the University's new MSc course in Motorsport Engineering and Management.

The Master's programme, which has been developed in conjunction with leading figures from international motorsport, will hone the skills and expertise of tomorrow's engineers. Support from leading manufacturers such as Nissan is vital to the successful development of the course.

Ian Milburn, CBE, and Gareth Burnett of Nissan's European Technology Centre and Alec Poole, General Manager Nissan Motorsports Europe are all firm supporters of the newly-established course and have made it possible for the Cranfield to have the car.

The university has been involved with motorsport research for many years and has developed close links within the industry. The culmination of this being a steering committee chaired by Jackie Stewart OBE and containing many leading figures from the world of motorsport.

The BTCC replica is housed in the university's composites research laboratory. Other facilities at Cranfield include the wind tunnels, power train laboratories, suspension analysis rigs and the Cranfield Impact Centre where many F1 cars undergo crash testing. Students on the course will have access to these facilities and will participate in a 2 day workshop on motorsport welding to be delivered by Lincoln Electric who run trackside welding for NASCAR events and the 24 hours of Daytona.

I might go back and do another course. I already got a B.Eng (Hons) in Aerospace Engineering (yes, I do want to develop my own bodywork) so I should be able to get on the course.

All I need is a lottery win to be able to afford to go on the course.........

Any donations??
