I miss having a fun car and me and a mate got talking about small cars well under 1000kg that could be turbocharged and we got talking about Micra's as we both used to work for Nissan.

So few months later and...........


Stage 2 T3 turbo with 3" boost piping, SR20DET fuel rail/injectors :lol

Finally got 95% of the bits i need..... need to get few more bits like a wideband and gauge and suss the fueling out.

But here is a little teaser anyway

Little update

Bought the car finally after constantly getting mess around, i was willing to travel anywhere for a decent one. Found this one in Cheshunt - 2 hour train ride later and it was mine

1.3 Si - Non sunroof model







Any yesterday ordered this from Latvia - arrived today! Hows that for delivery service!







So now i have most the bits i need i started cleaning up turbo, the last owner made a fucking right mess of the manifold and turbo.

The manifold looked awful - So rushed, the space between the turbo flange and the one welded on was just full of lumpy bumpy weld. No attempt to smooth it for airflow or anything. ive spent about 2 hours so far smoothing it and matching the ports to the flanges - This is as far as i got today





Also ordered an Apexi Neo this morning too... hopefully that will be here by the weekend.

This is a showing the fuel adjustment for every 500 rpm



Will be taking the downpipe to work tommorow to weld the boss in for the wideband and wrap it in exhaust wrap... thats pretty much as far as i got this week

You had an old micra as a courtesy car?

I dont think they are hateful... i think a turbo charged 1300 slammed on coilovers would be a fucking laugh.

yeah thats how i always saw them, thought a low and wide micra could look cool. think i had a 1300, it seemed to rev loads but go nowhere felt like it was going to explode trying to hit 70, gear box was nice and smooth though

Someone made a thread a while back about putting a Almera engine into a Micr iirc? might be you tbh

This should be awesome was thinking of doing something similar soon maybe try and get some mesh alloys like old school Enkei's?

Yeah that was me.

I have a 1.6 16v engine and gearbox and the whole car loom to go into a micra.

Thinking of doing the 1.3 turbo first then the 1.6 16v turbo

Pretty good fun k11s. My mate had a 1.3 sr a couple year ago and it was canny quick. He sold it and missed it so much bought a 1.0 1 and dropped it on minilites but was too low and smashed his gearbox on a speed bump some1 stole the wheels so he weighed it in. He almost got me to buy 1

His sr



His 1.0

So it began!

Booked today off work.... little bit of a lay in and started about 10 ish

Standard.... never to be the same again


Drilled a hole for the wideband. The chap i got the exhaust off did the other welding... pretty shit but not blowing so going to leave it as its gonna be heat wrapped


Bumper off, the crossmember is getting replaced next weekend as has 3-4 holes and is pretty rusty, also had a little bump at some point because the crash bar is bent back slightly.




New gaskets and studs


Manifold on


Turbo bolted on and actuator preload set



Rad off and rad fan off too. I have a bigger Almera GTI rad and twin fan but doesnt look like there will be enough room with the turbo

Need to chop down the boost pipe on the throttle body as its too high and catched on the bonnet


Started routing the boost hoses


Cut to the lower headlamp panel to allow for the big old boost hoses. The crossmember will be
replaced next week so this cut out bit will be seam sealed and welded up.

Intercooler on


Micra fan (yellow) and the Almera one, had 2 fans in one housing so cut them apart and checked which was the high speed fan and used that one. Later on when i put the down pipe on i had to cut more of the housing for the fan as the downpipe was catching on it. Will wrap the downpipe as its very close to radiator.


Almost back together - Moved the other horn to the other side of the boost piping as i quite like the noise of the micra horn.... in a weird way


Pretty much how i left it.




The mess



All thats left for tommorow is fit my sump with the oil return in and wire in wideband, boost gauge, oil gauge and wire in and program the Apexi Neo SAFC

Interesting little project, my misses has a 1L K11 and tbh for a 1L it goes well so should imagine the 1.3L with turbo should be quite a pokey little car. How much boost you planning on pumping into it?
