but ours dont break...
except for the rocker arms and the oil squirter on cyl1 ;) I'm not hating.. SR is proven for reliability... If nissan thinks the QR is it's future 4cyl (it seems to) I think it'll change two things, shot peen the butterfly screws and actually fix the precat.

i have nissans solution to fixing the qr25.... slap on a turbo, so you can get rid of those troublesome butterfly valves :) ... loose the precat (precats dont like turbo heat )... and forge the pistons and rods, and some decent valves and valve springs... done and done.... oh yea and make it a closed deck

The open deck can still hold 300+ HP.... MORE than enough for FWD...

The open deck also helps with motor cooling by adding to the amount of liquid that can flow through the motor.

No matter what people say, I LOVE the QR25DE. I love the stock torque and response :) It has not given me the slightest problem. Maybe b/c I do not mess w/ it? What, you complain about throwing in a turbo and the engine not being reliable? LOL.

It is not Nissan's problem.. if you wanted turbo, get a stock one ore another car. Nissan sure should fix reliability problems, as should EVERY other manufacturer. Who would have thought a Toyota Camry LE V6 would throw a rod? Guess what, My Camry did, and yeah, it is a "reliable" toyota.

Again, the SE-R is great FOR WHAT IT IS. I find it funny the same people "brag" about it, and when they see someone bashing it, they happily join...

So Bode15, you are telling me you got your car b/c you liked it better than an SE-R and financial reasons were not a factor at all? Sure. So if you had the change to get a spec for free and give up your car, you would say no? Sure again.

Thank You Evangelos K. i absolutly agree. i love this car, and its engine and everythign about, never had a single problem. and i ahve 3 other friends with a spec and a 4th with a gxe and not even a single problem. you wana go make sick numbers on the dyno, go get a honda. no wonder they can withstand it there motors are so small and there strock is so little that its no surprise. as for me i love the torque nissan produces stock!

i'll answer this in my case.

i bought my car july 27, 2001. at that time, i had known about the spec v for a good amount of time. my dealership told me they would have one by mid-october of 2001 and i could have easily waited if i wanted to. money was not a problem and if i had it to do all over again, i would chose my SE again over the SE-R :). i did it once when all the hype was happening, i'm pretty sure i could do it again ;)

i'll answer evangelos' smart *** question too. i sold my spec-v and took a small loss and now have an se and have no regrets what so ever. judging from the cash i paid for the SE and the Tein SS, it wasn't a problem with money :)

I bought my car in early 2002 , before the Spec-V & SE-R were available . And I still would've went with the SE . I bought the SE purely because of the SR20DE motor , plain & simple . :D But I've gotten to love the B15 body-style . ;)

I would've bought the Spec-V in 2002...if it were available .

Of course the QR25DE motor would've been ditched for an SR20VE...and I could've been the first SR20VE-powered B15 . :)
