Hi all, First time poster and a complete noob to the Silvia/180 world so apologies for the potentially novice questions. I just got a 180sx rolling shell that I am intending on putting a new SR20DET in and getting registered. This is my first project car and I am using it to learn. (however my daily is a Stagea so I've learnt a bit out of neccesity as things break haha) My question (I did search the forums but couldn't find a solid answer, particularly for someone who has never done an engine swap before). Originally this car had a "Red Top" SR20DET and I am potentially going to drop a "Black Top" SR20DET in it (only because they are seemingly more readily availble at the moment - would happily drop a red top back in if available). Is this going to be a straight swap? I guess I would have to get a new ECU but beyond that are there any differences I need to be aware of? Also I assume this wouldn't be a problem for getting it blue slipped as it is still an SR20? Any help would be great and apologies again if this has been covered. Thanks,
I have been doing a rebuild on my s13 red top sr20det and found 3 cracks between the plug hole and valve seat on no1 cylinder also the quench pads are pitted very badly on all cylinders. Anyway, i am currently disassembling an sr20de s13 head as a doner. People have always told me that the exhaust valves are different i.e. sodium filled exhaust on DET's and not on the DE. Turns out that the head is EXACTLY the same in every way. You can go and confirm yourself with nissan fast. Same valves, guides, seats. Cams and springs are different but that is all. Another thing i found is that the exhaust guides of both engines are completely worn way beyond the factory limits. sr20det has about 150,000K and de has 200,000K My machinist said this was rare for sr20's but id like to hear from anyone here who knows of worn factory guides. I have supertech ex valves and guides on the way to go in. Let me know if im wrong but i cant see any difference in the head castings, valves or valve seats.
