    I want to make her more responsive and track friendly, as I've done on my previous Micra k11

    It's an uncommon car here in Italy, so I need help to find performance parts (my previous experience on micra was long and difficult, but I created a little monster :

    :D tank you, leather seats are brand new like :)
    I'm looking for lucino clear tail lights and phase 2 black headlights, but I found only RHD ones. I want to make a VZ-R N1 Replica :D

    ok, so head flows better than highport one.
    It's also a Roller rocker engine?
    there are differences between cams on a SR20 RR and a non RR?

    They flow better as standard but Highports seem to get better flow overall with proper porting work. The Gti engine is a Roller rocker engine. The cams are different between RR and non-RR.

    Tomei make cams. JWT make cams. Catcams (unsurprisingly) make cams. All for the RR engine. There used to be a few come up 2nd hand but they all seem to have disappeared into the ether over the years.
