Nissan motors started out in 1914 as the Datsun, until Nissan came in and bought it, creating the Nissan Motor Company in 1934. After this they began building trucks, airplanes, and engines for the Japanese Military and their mane plant was moved to china after the invasion there. The plant manufactured machinery and parts for the Japanese war effort until it was captured and then used by the Chinese.

Nissan logo

The DAT cars had, through some strange twists and turns, inherited an American designer named Gorham, who in 1908 worked for DAT. Aikiwa wanted to use the latest technology and the finest materials in his DAT cars, however it was Gorham who was able to make it happen, with all the machinery, vehicle designs, and engine designs coming out of the USA, and most of the tooling came from the Graham factory. The machines were imported to Japan by Mitsubishi for Nissan and were used to produce the first Datsun before WWII.

After WWII Nissan followed the steps of Hino and decided to gain a Euro-partner with the BMC, and with that they began to build Austins; this was actually the second time, before that in 1930 they had done the same but were interrupted by the Second World War.By the 60s they merged with Prince Motor Company, and afterwards created Infinity in 1990 as a luxury brand.

Nissan

Throughout the latter 20th century they have seen problems and made mistakes as other companies have, however recently they have a new factory in South Africa, they have released a hybrid truck, and they have entered a deal to produce some 50,0000 tractors a year. They were going to enter a partnership with GM last year, but the parties balked at the deal and parted was, ending talks and negations abruptly.

Which car according to you should be the top-most contender for the best Sports coupe of the decade? Millions of wild ideas will be haunting your mind from the word ‘go’. It is not easy to judge, yet there is a clear cut winner by a comfortable margin. Not only it is a stunning piece of machinery but is also cutting edge Sports coupe. Most of you might have judged the right answer by now and it is Nissan 350Z.

A state of art body with amazingly wild engine; this Sports buzz is one of the hottest vehicles on the road. It is known for its impeccable handling and soft steering.

A tuned up 350Z is a feast for every eye. Known for its awesome drag abilities, any tune up will lift its overall perfect rating in true sense.

Nissan 350z Tuning

If you want some mechanical tune up, then probably a fast road cam would be the best option. You have to get a new fuel pressure boost valve so that the engine is not choked and devoid of fuel.

The next big change comes in the form of Breathing Mods. If you have a full induction kit, then you’ll experience maximum power gains. A Sports catalyst would be an added asset since it will not allow your engine to lose on pressure. A strong Power Clutch will direct the power where it is most needed. A good large Turbo will give your Nissan some immense power gains and beasty speed on the road.

A good vehicle is nothing without some extraordinary, jaw-dropping looks. It is always good to have power alloys not for the killer looks but nonetheless they give better balance and control of unsprung weight. Alloy wheels allow efficient brake cooling due to their technical design. In the end the overall rotational diameter should remain the same at all costs.

A final engine tuning not only helps in increasing the volumetric efficiency, removing negative pressure using the induction kit but also gives a much greater torque by converting it to necessary power through higher speed.

As a Nissan 350Z enthusiast, you should try 400 hp and 353 ft-lb of torque on VP Racing 100-octane gasoline. Specially prepared for HKS USA, the compressor housing was ported and a prototype 9.5-psi pulley was fitted to the supercharger to replace the standard 7-psi unit. Control the injectors with an HKS F-CON V Pro D Jetro standalone engine management system, which can be further be taken care of by opening valve outflow at all times.. The standard intercooler included in the kit should also be dumped and replaced with a larger prototype S-Type front mount. The included bypass valve should be replaced with an SSQV blow-off valve, made by HKS–obviously.

We’ve seen some of the most amazing Nissan tune-ups till now. A word of caution would be to handle your Nissan car with a lot of care. Since Nissan looks very beautiful, it’s tune-up might just spoil up the internal technicalities. Hence always give your baby in professional hands only.

Nissan has produced fabulous cars throughout its career. A wonderful family car that ruled the streets of Asia from 1995 to 2006 is Nissan Almera. Rated as one of the masterpieces from Nissan’s factory, it was considered a very capable model with sharp and precise handling with minimal bodyroll and an effective tyre grip.

From some great engine makeovers in the past, Almera has truly become one of the most admired vehicle on the road. It is an elegant family car with an aura of professional touch around it. There is no doubt that Almera can be tuned to give it a real tough look on the road.

Nissan Almera has been subjected to many tuning tricks and many of them have worked for good. This shows the compatibility and stability of the technology used for this vehicle. From strong air inlets to re-engineered cams, Almera has simply grown stronger with every modification. With the introduction of new exhaust systems, a whole new dimension was added to the tuning mechanism of Almera.

Nissan Almera Tuning

Newly introduced performance parts like the carbon fibre air filter housings and silicone hoses, which are used to insulate the heating effects of engine are some popular additions and replacements depending on the model of Almera. This helps in providing cooler air when needed and lesser friction in bigger hoses. The engine automatically gets more air and hence shows a higher grade of performance.

How many of you think that an Almera would be complete without the new back cat exhaust system and chrome tailpipes. With massive wild spoilers and a huge range of body kits, you simply cannot resist to tune up your vehicle. Interior trim adjustments such as sporty seats, steel race pedals, light leather seats and small & handy steering are actually the biggest eye-catchers.

For better performance you need better change shift gears with less friction. Also, using new ball bearings will reduce the time to reach the 100mph barrier. Just like a pro street racing car, new gear and axle system will make a huge difference. The gear system of BMW 5 series is quite compatible with the latest models of Almera and hence would the best option.

Moreover, hoods on the bonett and on the front side doors would increase the looks and thrust of the vehicle. Finally, to add some great finishing touches to the vehicle, newly introduced Jaguar car posters which use air brush designing techniques can really pump up the looks and force every single chic to turn her head around.

The air-brush painting of the White eagle from front to end is the best suitable option as per the size and design of the car.

Almera has long been one of the most trusted family cars. With such beast tune ups, it is surely going to redefine the meaning of Tuned cars in its segment.

The latest technology buzz on the block from Nissan’s kitty is Nissan Micra. Extremely stylish with a touch of fun and extreme efficiency in all segments, this car is already geared up to set the Indian sub-continent on fire with its unique elegance and horse power. Originally known as March in Japan, this car will roll out on the streets of India in 2010.

Born in 1982, this car posed a serious threat to the sales of Honda City. Known as K10 by its lovers, this car grew in popularity with every new version on the roads. Next came the K11 which ruled for 11 years till 2003. The latest model on the road is the K12 whose production stopped way back in 1997. This car was renowned for its radical design and extremely high thrust.

Nissan Micra Tuning

Designing and tuning up a Micra might seem an easy job, but in reality it is one of the toughest technological challenges on cards. Since it is already very strong as per the technical specifications are concerned, Micra lovers and enthusiasts keep updating themselves with new techniques.

Let us begin with the first step of giving the engine some much needed air. More power comes from more torque which in turn is derived from better volumetric efficiency of the engine. Air filter panel, exhaust system including a high profile catalytic converter are the first major changes that you need to do.

Micra is sensitive to changes, hence the next step should focus on extracting the maximum potential. Since it has to be made into a high turbo charged vehicle; hence high boost pressures are needed which further decrease the intaking charge. An intercooler of optimal size and high quality is needed so that the vehicle intakes less charge temps and gains substantial power boost.

Now comes the discussion point of huge power gains and increasing the much needed torque in the vehicle. After you’ve installed compatible versions of injectors, regulators and fuel rails, you should think of fitting in a larger turbo so that your engine can manage enough power load. You must also work towards removing negative pressure from the valves. An induction kit will help you achieve this quite instantly.

This indirectly increases volumetric efficiency and hence you have a better roaring engine. Always try to make your vehicle light so that the instant acceleration and momentum are immense. A multi layer steel head gasket, camshaft and varrier pulleys, lightened flywheel and extra smooth alloys are very necessary to give your MICRA the much needed impetus.

Micra has been the baby doll of Asia and has ruled the roads for years. The new Micra is ready to unleash its ruthless power and style and turn every head around the corner.
