    That looks fantastic, it's really good to see people going to great lengths for these cars. Exactly how I feel about my Resto project vzr! I'm after doing the bottom end shells on my SR16VE, any idea of where I could get the part numbers from? Thanks a lot

    just as a matter of interest, what were the timing events, and measured at what lift?

    We spent a lot of time with timing adjustment and finished with these exact numbers:

    We used valve clearance:
    intake
    0.20mm, -+0,05
    Exhaust
    0.37mm, +-0,05

    Timing regarding N1 cams and factory instructions should be 110° intake / 122° exhaust – both on low cam
    Timing was quite off when We set as it was from the factory

    We finished with: 111° on the intake, 117° on the exhaust side
    valves opens +- at the same point as are the factory specs =
    Intake Low: Opens at 0deg before TDC, Closes at 40deg After BDC
    Exhaust Low: Opens at 64deg before BDC, Closes at 0deg After TDC

    What is strange - when We have exactly measured low duration of the cams , it´s differs a lot!

    Many thanks to you guys!
    and why 18´s? Almera kit car also had 18´s for asphalt competitions... I need much more grip and have 225/40/18 size in the vehicle registration. Those wheels are very light /only 7.2kg per Wheel/ and wrapped in Pirelli Trofeo R tires /225-40-18/

    timing events and duration change depending on the valve lift its measured at. nissan measure their duration at 0.04mm or 0.016''. if you measured at a different lift you may of got some different results. probabaly gunna change anyway once on the dyno. top work.
