Nissan Sentra Nismo

1 post in this topic

Nissan Sentra Nismo

Nissan has unveiled the 2017 Nissan Sentra under the name of its performance division, Nismo. The Sentra joins the likes of the legendary Nismo vehicles such the GT-R, 370Z and Juke. The aggressive-looking body and styling updates with engineering mastery by Nissan is sure to make this model a better competitor among the line-up of Subaru WRX, Volkswagen GTI and Ford Focus ST.


Under the hood, lies a 1.6 l turbocharged engine, inline four cylinder engine producing 188 ponies at 5600 rpm, 58 hp more than the standard Sentra. The company calls the 1.6L engine a track-inspired performance variant. The turbocharger comes with an intercooler to boost the performance of the engine. The Sentra Nismo features a front-wheel drive similar to the 2016 standard Sentra. Nissan has equipped the Sentra with a Nismo-tuned manual six-speed transmission. In addition to the manual variant, a performance tuned Xtronic CVT is available. The curb weight and weight distribution of the 2017 model are 1378 kg and 61:39 for the manual transmission and 1408 kg and 62:38 for the CVT version respectively. 1:16 is (horsepower: pounds) the power: weight ratio of the manual transmission.


The chassis has Nismo-specific enhancements which include re-tuned independent suspensions. Torsion beam suspension and mono-tube dampers make sure the ride and handling is in-line with the standards of a track car. The high-pressure gas damper provides better response to changes. The tuned chassis enhances body control.


The body work includes trademark of Nismo-branded vehicles such as lower stance, blackened grille and red stripes all around. One important aerodynamic upgrade is the Nismo’s signature "layered double wing". The bodywork upgrades and aero treatments reduce rear lift by 30 percentage and the coefficient of drag is 0.29.It sports an 18” aluminum alloy wheels fitted with Brembo brakes and all-season tires.


The Interior designs of the Sentra Nismo are unique and track-inspired. It has a 370Z inspired steering wheel which features an electric-assist system. Red accents which are signature styles of the Nismo are found throughout the interiors. Leather stripes and Carbon fibre looks give more of an aesthetic appearance to the Sentra Nismo. The seats are heavily bolstered and sporty. The Alcantara leather can be found in interior trims and steering wheel grip cover. The instrument cluster features tachometer output with NISMO red labelling.

      Nissan Nismo GT-R

      Is the standard Nissan GT-R too civilized for you? Maybe you feel like it’s lacking power or excitement. Fear not, the Nismo edition is here to solve all your worries. It offers more power, better handling, and greater overall performance, but that comes at a rather hefty premium. The GT-R is no longer the budget hypercar beating sportscar it once was. It’s now a full on supercar, with the price of the Nismo version exceeding that of Porsche’s Turbo S and even the 911 GT3 RS. Is it worth it?

      Well, it depends on what you want from a car. Nismo is short for Nissan Motorsports, the company’s caring division. They’re in charge of the hottest and most exciting models Nissan makes, and they eventually even deliver their own specially-tuned model like the R35 GT-R Nismo. It’s a hardcore, enthusiast car, so in that regard, it’s not a Porsche Turbo S rival. Then again, it has so much raw potential and outright speed that you can’t compare it to the GT3 RS, which is more of a driver’s car offering enjoyment. So what is the Nismo then?
      Well, for starters, it’s a lot more powerful than the standard GT-R. The 3.8 liter twin-turbo V6 located at the front has been tweaked to a rather large extent. The entire turbochargers have been swapped out for larger ones, offering higher air flow (they’re actually lifted from the GT3 car). The result is nothing short of astonishing, because the relatively light and compact unit is capable of delivering 600 horsepower and 481 pound-feet of torque. European models get 8 less horsepower, but it’s not really noticeable unless you’re a racing driver.
      The engine is still mated to a six-speed dual-clutch gearbox, but Nissan say it’s better than ever. The shifts are faster still, and it works great in conjunction with the new turbochargers. Elsewhere, there’s new shock absorbers, springs, stabilizers and a unique Bilstein DampTronic system which transfers power to the wheels more efficiently and is completely driver adjustable.

      A lot of emphasis has been put on aerodynamics. The Nismo version looks identical to the new 2017 GT-R, styling wise. It’s got the same tweaked front grille and the updated rear end, but a host of other changes as well. For instance, the aggressive bumper gets several layers of carbon-fiber sheets to improve the stiffness, the canards have been redesigned to improve overall airflow and the rear wing has been optimized to provide more downforce. The new Nismo GT-R manages to produce more downforce than any other Nissan ever built, apart from the racing cars of course.

      We have to get back to the elephant in the room, and that’s the price of the Nismo. It’s some $38,000 over the 2017 premium GT-R, raising the figure to a whopping $227,000. In other words, you can have a premium GT-R and a Golf GTI for the price of one Nismo. Would you, however?
      No, we wouldn’t either.

      Removing an rb25de/det + gearbox
      Before I get any heroes, leave your negativity with your huge ego ay
      what do i need?
      - a simple but detailed explanation of how to remove an rb25de/det + gearbox. 
      but anyway, hopefully this is an easy one for yous
      I searched, read, and googled a lot. But, I haven't the right forums or a detailed enough explanation to run with. So, what im asking is if there is anyone on here that believes that they 'know' the best/right way of removing an rb25de/det engine + gearbox. 
      This will a first time experiencing removing an engine plus box so the more detailed and well explained tutorial the smoother this process will go. I have watched a lot of videos, which has covered a lot of steps to remove an engine. Though It seems almost no one does it the same way, some people remove a lot of components where some only remove 'the basics'. Watching lots of different videos and reading stacks of information is pretty overwhelming. 
      If someone could post a thread, find a thread, link me a thread/ video/ anything that you think would help it would be appreciated.
