Engine KA24DE/E

In 1988, the Z24 series was replaced by the KA24 gasoline power units. It is already problematic to buy the very first modifications of the ka24e internal combustion engine in our time, since their production was discontinued in 1991 due to modernization. However, especially for several model lines intended for the European and North American markets, production is periodically resumed. Since its inception, the engine has been modified and modernized several times, which was reflected only in the power and CO level. For the rest, nothing of the in-line power unit used in the device has changed.

Engine VQ40DE

The 4-liter VQ40DE engine has become not only one of the most reliable in the line of Nissan VQ gasoline units, but also the most voluminous in it. This is an enlarged version of the VQ35DE, which received an expansion of volume due to the size of the cylinders and the piston stroke. The power unit appeared in 2005 in the USA, was developed for SUVs, since that time it has been equipped with the largest Nissan cars, as well as the Suzuki Equator until 2013. ICE VQ40DE experts recommend, like other motors in the series. It has a gorgeous resource, which is unusual with modern disposability, the absence of problems and a huge potential for tuning.

Engine VQ35DE

The VQ35 engine is considered one of the most massive engines from the Nissan company. This ICE has received more than one award, becoming the “best engine of the year”. The VQ35 replaces the VQ30DE unit, which belonged to the first generation of VQ motors. This new 3.5-liter engine, in the most common version, has a capacity of 280 horsepower. It should be added that in its (second) generation, the VQ35 had versions with a capacity of 230-250 forces, and in the third – 260-300.

Engine QR25DE

The QR25DE aluminum engine is rated as a weak “four”. He is a clearly pronounced “disposable” with a mileage of just over 200 with an extremely attentive and careful attitude. The QR25DE appeared by significantly expanding the piston stroke (by 20 mm) for the two-liter QR20DE with the replacement of the crankshaft and the camshaft at the outlet. Lubrication and resource depletion problems are more common here, but after 2007 the engine was modified and became much better. There are quite a few turbo whales designed for ICEs to play around with power and performance.

Engine VK56DE

The parent of the VK56DE engine was the VK45DE. Unlike its older relative, this engine acquired a larger cylinder block with a height of 232 mm, due to which the connecting rods were extended to 154.5 mm. The cylinders themselves began to be produced wider by 5 mm, they became 98 mm wide, and a new crankshaft was also installed, which made it possible to increase the piston stroke to 92.8 mm. All the changes led to the fact that the engine began to have a lower Compression ratio and a larger displacement, which was 5.6 liters. The cylinder head is aluminum, the valve timing system on the CVTCS outlet camshafts has become stepless. A chain is used to drive the timing. The result is a motor perfect for pickups and SUVs, taking traction from low revs.
