I was looking to buy a new sentra very soon, but then i noticed that the SE-R will be released in the summer. I was debating whether or not the SE-R is really worth the wait. I was looking to modify either car slightly with exaust and intakes. Which is easier to modify? Thanx for the input

you'll be lucky if they make any SE-R parts by December. The b15 SE is extremely easy to mod, about 15min for each of CAI and exhaust with the proper tools.

I believe that parts will flow rather quickly for the new SE-R. 1) The motor will be used in at least one other nissan (altima) 2) the SE-R has better performance out of the box 3)The SR20DE will no longer be available in a new vehicle. 4) The SE-R has been in almost every major magazine 5) The SE-R Badge!!!!

If you plan on minimal mods get the se-r, if your goin all out get the SE while you still can. The sr20 is old but still has more potential.

Speaking of SERs. I saw a sentra GXE today with rims and vinyl SER badges on the sides of it. I was disgusted. I told him come back and race me with your bootleg SER. He didn't want any.

Yeah, if you read the article in SCC about the SER, they say that the QR25 engine is a very big 4 cylinder and the way that Nissan has it set up, it will be difficult to get a lot of power out of it. There are a lot of different computer controls for strict emissions that are more difficult to bypass cuz the QR engine was made with emissions in mind.

The SR20 motor as everyone knows has been around for many years and all this emissions crap was added on later so it's easy to bypass it all and go all out with the motor. If you want to spend the money, you can definitely build a SR20 powered car that will run circles around any new SER.

Why bother with the se/mod anymore...the new kid on the block will be the SE-R. The SE's will be obsolete pretty soon.

I guess i'm just going to wait for the SE-R, if it turns out that i don't like it (fat chance), hopefully the dealership will still have an SE on hand, Thanx for the advice

Keep in mind also that the value of SE's will drop slightly when the SER comes out. Also, if what I have heard is true, the Altima comes out pretty soon, and having two cars with the same motor helps to get those aftermarket parts fast. Anybody know if the SER is in Japan yet? I know with the WRX the aftermarket parts have come out almost instantanously because the REX has been out all over the world for a year.

IMHO, for all you get with the SER (6 speed, FAT tires, 180 horsepower, cool stereo), it is a much better deal to just buy the SER then to mod a SE (no offense to current SE owners, just stating the facts).

The SCC article mentions that it is going to be harder to mod the new SE-R, and you may not be able to pust it as far because the block is die cast instead of sand cast. "While there are many advantages, the open-deck design of the QR25 may make truly extreme performance one step more difficult." Of course, they may be contemplating trying to double the output, like you can with the SR20DE. Some of their mods are very extreme.

Oxymoron? you are stating your opinion, NOT THE FACTS. Do some research next time.

The one thing you guys forgot is that he said he wanted to "mod his car lightly with exhaust and intakes". If that's the case, just go for the SE-R. An exhaust and intake on an SE isn't going to get you 180hp and 180tq.

Is the SR20DE going to be totally unavailable in any carline?? For me this engine is a gem and I would have to wait at least another year before jumping to the SE-R. I'm into more reliability than performance though. Besides even with the 2.5L there's still lots out there that can kick SE-R (even moded) butt.
