Dala's EVNX - LEAF powered!

Mon Nov 23, 2020 12:54 am

So I'm building up a 1991 Nissan NX to be LEAF powered. Might be interesting to tag along? :)

In this episode I get the vehicle into the shop

I experienced a moment of confusion. One of the higher ups at the agency where I worked for decades drove a Pulsar for quite a few years, and I was picturing that when I read "NX". Not much room in one of those for a Leaf drivetrain!

PLEASE don't PM me with Leaf questions. Just post in the topic that seems most appropriate.

Well it is almost meant to confuse :D It is an extremely obscure car, mostly forgotten if it hadn't been for the SR20 engines. Before this one was stripped, I had it setup with an JDM SR20VET engine, making 350whp on a FWD system. It was also RAIN-waterinjected and ran E85. I have a goal to top the last build, let's see if I succeed!

very cool Dala!

I will definitely follow along. I am guessing you won't be using the stock VCM? Or have you been able to crack it to command more amps?

cheers

Parts are being purchased! In this episode I show what my usual approach is when it comes to finding salvage yard bits and pieces!

So the motor that I ordered from Norway is finally here. In this short video, I proceed with tearing it down so that I can start to measure if it will be even possible to mate it with the SR6speed gearbox. Enjoy!
