      I wanted to find the right plastic welding stick for the right plastic you know.Gonna try a good plastic welder that can reach temps up 1000degrees.Each plastic has its own point where you are able to work it properly just can't find the numbers on the back have to look again

      Nylon 66 with a filler is going to want some heat for sure.

      Hey guys.. I am nearing completion of the mods I have done to the factory manifold and should be installing/testing it soon if all goes well.

      Just wanted to let you know that this thread has been passed on to the people over at Cosworth.

      If anyone is capable of building a manifold to get power out of this engine, they are.


      For those of you not familiar with them, look at the intake manifold they produced for the Nissan VQ35

      http://www.cosworthusa.com/sto...ct=89


      If anyone else is serious about making power out of this engine, NOW is the time to speak up as this is the current response I received-

      We will investigate your suggestion
      further and get back to you. I must mention it will be difficult for
      me to suggest development unless I can prove the demand is there. If
      you can assist with that it would be greatly helpful.

      If the price is similar to the VQ35 one it seems like a no-brainer.

      Well aware.. never hurts to ask. Worst they can say is no. Honestly, do you think they sell many to the Nissan guys either?


      One way or the other I will build a new manifold for this car.. if I can have the professionals do it, we all benefit.

      dont you know the VQ motor is a way more versatile motor then our 24v. there are ALOT of different variations of the VQ you got your VQ30, VQ35, VQ37...then you got some with bigger cams then others, and some have higher compression then others also(all within the same displacement family and you can still mismatch parts. not to mention the VQ is an aluminum block). Alot more interesting then our 3.2/2.8 exchanges we have.


      But still Id love to see them take a shot at this I know this would benefit turbo and NA.

      I came from 8 years of VQ modifying before I switched back to VAG world.

      VQs not all the same... 95-99 3.0L are not the same as the later 3.5Ls and then there are variations of CVTC ones with dual CVTC and single and none. You got RevUps, you got HR and VHRs etc.

      Maxima people tend to swap out the 3.0 blocks out to 3.5s and disable CVTCs. When it comes to NA VQ power, Maxima owners are the pioneers. 270FWHP from stock internals stock CR VQ30DE-K.

      Our stock intake is similar to that of the 00-01 VQ30DE-K with its dual stage runner and resonance chamber. I'm trying to find pictures of the intake to show ya how it works.

      Yes, yes, yes, yes!

      I know someone here in Michigan who has worked with the local Cosworth shop, don't know if that is relevant info.

      If they come out with an intake that absolutely makes more power I am down!

      Have you posted over at R32oc?

      Don't forget this engine is used in the following cars-

      VW R32
      VW EOS
      VW Touareg
      VW Phaeton (overseas)
      VW New Beetle RSI (overseas)
      Audi A3
      Audi TT
      Porsche Cayenne
      YES Roadster (overseas)


      Of those cars, I'd say the Audi guys would be most likely to do engine mods. It's not a huge market, but it is something.

      Remember your grammar. I don't think you're going to install a pile of stock parts. You're going to install a stockpile of (performance) parts.
