    All information for the Silvia and 300zx has been derived from Nissan Factory Service Manuals. Unfortunately, the Skyline information comes from a variety of sources, as it isn't covered in the same detail in the factory manuals. Seems the 80's were better haha. The following models are covered in full: Nissan S13/180sx (1989-1998) Nissan S14 200sx (1993-1998) Nissan S15 200sx (1999-2002) Nissan Z32 300zx (1989-2000) QUICK REFERENCE LIST For those with a bad memory, print this list out, trim to size, laminate, and attach to the underside of the bonnet. If you have a smart phone, then store it on that too for ease of reference.

GREEN Inorganic Acid Technology (IAT). Suitable to cast iron blocks. Oldest formula containing silicate and phosphates, which reduce electrical conductivity, but damage coolant seals. RED/ORANGE Organic Acid Technology (OAT). Suitable for aluminium blocks only. No silicate or phosphate, but can rust cast iron blocks if run too low. PINK Hybrid Organic Acid Technology (HOAT). Silicate-free OAT formula with additional phosphates to protect against corrosion. A compromise between IAT and OAT. YELLOW/ORANGE Hybrid Organic Acid Technology (HOAT). OAT formula with additional nitrites to reduce electrical conductivity. Orange version contains 10% recycled coolant. MYTHS AND FACTS 1. You can't mix different coolant types False. Mixing coolant can be done, but ideally should be avoided. Only use the coolant type specified by the manufacturer. 2. Never run tap water, as it will rust your engine. True and False. For a short peroid of time it isn't an issue, but drain and replace all the coolant as soon as you can. 3. It's really important to run the correct quantity of coolant, and bleed the system of air. True. Do not underfill. Coolant vapour is more corrosive than water or coolant, so running low is worse than running tap water. 4. Running more coolant concentrate is better than less. I'm being ripped off at the shops when a premix is only 30% ethelyne glycol. False. The thermal capacity of Ethelyne Glycol is lower than water, so water is actually more effective at removing heat. You only want enough concentrate to raise the boiling point of the water, improve its freezing point, and reduce electrolysis. It's a balancing act, and 30% is the best compromise. 50% should be reserved for really cold climates, hence it never appears as a premix option in Australia.

Go one plug colder for every 100HP of extra power, the next step up from factory being NGK 7. A 'colder' plug simply means that heat is transferred to the head faster, cooling the tip of the plug and the combustion chamber faster. More power and more boost equates to more heat, hence significant increases require a different plug.

Copper and Iridium only. COPPER VS PLATINUM VS IRIDIUM The primary difference between the three is longevity. Platinum and Iridium last around 3 times longer. On some engines, changing spark plugs is a big chore, but not so on the SR20, so this is less of an advantage. I recommend copper, as it can be regapped without causing damage to the tip, and is so much cheaper than platinum/iridium that occasional replacement still makes it more economically viable. Turbo engines tend to wear spark plugs faster than NA, so replacement should be done periodically anyway. SCANS OF NISSAN OIL RECOMMENDATION CHART S13/RPS13 (CA18DE/T) S14 (SR20DE/T) S15 (SR20DE/T)

    So if clockspring is removed the easiest place to find horn wire would be at that plug. The horn wire doesnt go to ecu just so you know. It goes to a relay under bonnet then to horn itself. Most boss kits have a wire in it for the horn but im guessing yours doesnt? In order for it to work you need to create an “earth” when you press horn button and join into the car side of clockspring plug let me know if more info needed

    Thanks for all the replies hut I think it got a bit off topic with the VE heads. I've ended up getting my current SR20 built by Donny who many of you would know and I thought it wouod be the best option now after considering your replies. The main reason was that its a street registered cwr and I don't want it to get engineered as that would blow the budget. Secondly I know that this Sr20 is fresh and forged and will be able to handle track days with that power and should 'hopefully' be fine for a couple of years. Donny recommended this for the power im after: JE pistons Spool rods Acl race bearings Cometic head gasket Nissan oil pump Nissan water pump Nissan gasket kit BC valve springs BC cam gear and cams being dialed in. Block and head machined, tested, valve stem seals etc. Any input for the brand choice of pistons,rods and head gasket?
