My 2005, SE-R build.......

I just bought an 03 SE-R with a blown engine.

For a little background, I have been building hot rods , and performance engines for over 35 years now, not to mention paint/body, and lots of fab work.

Here is my little 90 Mazda B2200 that I twin turbo charged along with a Ford/Dart 363 engine.



So I while the engine is out I would like to up the HP just a bit to an honest 300fwhp.

I would agree that a turbo would be the best way to go with this, but I really don't want to take it that far as my wife will mostly be driving it.

I was thinking headers, port the heads, bigger throttle body [size???] maybe mill the heads for a little more CR.
So do any of you have an engine making around this much HP, and what did you do to the engine?

After doing some reading on the 350z forums, looks like its not going to happen.

Of course the majority of the posts I read there were about bolt ons, and not really getting into the engines [I find this strange after comming from building Mustangs, and such as its not a big deal to build engines, not even the 32valve DOHC engines.]

So, I will probably rebuild the engine with some Weisco 9.5cr forged pistons, and just fab up a turbo setup. [Like I did on my 02 Tacoma 4 banger].

Anything known with these engines that need to be addressed, [other than the pre cat issues].

Something wrong there - either typo or no deal - SE-R Altimas were only manufactured for the 2005-2006 model years.

Other than that good luck...Seems you know your stuff...

We gave them money down, and got a receipt. I looked, and they did take their ad off Craigslist.

Why didn't I take my trailer when going to look? Well, I figure that always puts the seller a leg up on you when you negotiate price. Also, if the car is a turd, then you wasted gas pulling a trailer both ways.

I've already got ideas on how the turbo should go. The easy way is to put it in the trunk. But, that costs about $500 for the return oil pump [same thing I did on my twin turbo B2200]

Of course its way easier though to fabricate a remote turbo setup, and there is less heat under the hood.

If the 3.5l engine is made a good as the 2.5l, 4 cyl, then the block should stand up to lots more hp then I will be running.

My goal, as was my 02 Tacoma, is to make boost right up to the point of having to go with a $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ ecu controller.

Question, has anyone converted their fuel pump to a Walbro 225 setup?

You might want to hit up the 3rd gen lounge - a bit more traffic over there man.

To use a Walbro pump you would need to modify the fuel basket. The Walbro is taller than the factory Bosch pump.

The DW65c 265lph however is plug-n-play. You can get the one with or without installation clips. Either works.

DW65c 265lph fuel pump



Unlike the 350z the fuel sock for the L31 models is embedded in the basket with no easy access to service or replace. I had 150k on the original sending unit so when I upgraded to the DW65c, I bought a new assembly on Amazon and replaced the Bosch pump with the DeatschWerks.

Well got the car out of the weeds, and home today.

I was able to crank it, but it rattles like a bucket of bolts.

BUT, its important to know that it runs so that when I get the engine back in the car, and for whatever reason it don't start, I will at least know that everything was good before the rebuild.

I'm going to either pour some transmission fluid, or engine cleaner into the engine tomorrow so that the insides of the engine will be good, and clean for the rebuild. Also, I will spray some water into the intake while its running to clean out the carbon, and other gunk on the pistons/valves.

I wonder how much hp a 12:1cr engine with ported heads, headers, and true duel exhaust along with fresh air cleaner would make?

Thanks for the link on the fuel pump.

Weisco sells 11:5 piston, so that, and a set of thinner head gaskets [Cometic] might not be such a bad idea. Of course water injection would be mandatory at that cr.

Still a remote turbo setup don't seem like it would be that hard........decisions, decisions.

You tell it , decisions , decisions , & money sprey ! A chance that you do the job yourself , you ll save that way .

If you plan on some turbo install later on , get some forged conrods also . Have the engine machined prepped also , but you know it already as with any other engine builds .

I saw some VQ35s builts on some 350z forums , don t remember which ones , but Z guys did some engine builds , just search again , you should find these .

Pic's. Sad shape so far.




Started pulling the engine today, miles of wiring to go before I sleep.


Looks like there might be a way to make a simple log style header for a turbo.


I thought I would actually get the dang thing out today, but the sun has almost cooked me.
