    Hi all,

    I want to know beside 1 is NA, 1 is turbo. Are they basically same engine?? maybe just SR20DE + T = SR20DET??

    THanks.

    thanks guy, but i'm not trying to comparing between SR and RB since i'm going to buy a SR20DE.. My main concern is actually to know the maintenance and the running cost of this particular engine. Any issue while using this engine, what to take care about the engine will greatly help me if someone can share.

    Thanks.

    bro max.. rb in our car... hmmmm dun think so la..
    to me it's all about preferences, if u can afford n tend to play turbo get the DET series.. or if u wanna keep to N/A get the DE... sr20de silver top.. i guess it comes with auto tranny rite? not so sure.. get a gear box then it's done... long time ago here in iph there's this white AD resort with SR20de manual tranny... port polished n flywheel lightening and balancing... heard was a legend here in iph.. duno true anot coz from those vtec guys. they din belive the power of a station wagon at that time.. guess a lot of years back :) cheers bro on ur scoutin on engines :)

    Hi Bro MAx,

    I'm driving the SR20DE S15. POwer wise it is quite good for daily drive but dun fight with those cracy EVO Putra or Satria cos sure kena tapao one haha... Good thing is the Fuel consumption is quite economy, i got to drive 600++ on full tank. SO far haven't got any problem yet cos just drive left than half a year.

    basically sr20de tend to have higher comp due to its nature of being n/a

    anyways, maintenance and fuel consumption is of course less than sr20det engine

    since ur gonna buy an sr20de, the maintenance is juz like any normal engine..

    change oil when ur required to, belt change bla bla bla..

    no issues with running sr20 be it n/a or turbo..

    sr20de will of course could not beat the kick of an sr20det stock vs stock.. but the s15 sr20de is rated slightly higher than stock s13 sr20det (214hp vs 205hp)

    older s13 and early s14 sr20de do not have variable timing.. the later s14 and s15 do hence the better power and distribution throughout the rev range..



    upgrading the engine for higher power would of course need lotsa work (not to mention hard to gain horses compared to sr20det). think of higher comp pistons, stroking, high cams, exhaust.

    personally i do like the sr20de.. i've been running sr20det for more than a year now and sumtimes i do have the crazy craving for an s15 sr20de.. put in cams, exhaust, 2.2litre stroker... damn.. at least 250hp i think.. more than enough for ur daily needs..

    bottomline, an sr20de is a damn fine engine..

    click the link at the bottom for an article from super street mag.. the guy got an s13 with sr20de with 4 throttle.. damn nice :wink:

    there is no such thing as an sr20de silver top.. i'm referring to RWD sr20.. not FWD sr20.. hehehehehehehhe

    sr20s only come in black or red top.. painted valve covers do not count :lol:


    sr vs rb?

    i prefer sr.. more torque than rb

    S14 SR20DE 160ps/ 6400, 19.2 kgm / 4800

    SR vs RB???Hmmm

    SR20DE vs RB20DE

    RB20DE 155ps / 6400, 18.8 kgm / 5200 is losing to SR.....but
