NISformance Second Generation VQ35DE Swap Kit VERSION 2

This kit allows you to swap a 2nd generation VQ35DE motor in a 2002-2008 Maxima or 2002-2006 Altima (3.5 V6)

The NISformance 2nd Generation VQ35DE swap kit consist of five main components. The Cam sensor signal inverters, PNP throttle body adapter harness, Belt tensioner bracket, and Alternator bracket. Each component and its intended use is detailed below.

The camshaft sensor signal inverter allows the stock harness to be attached to a newer 2nd generation motor and intercept the camshaft signal wires. This is an essential part of the swap kit and has been designed with ease of install in mind. Each inverter with have a camshaft sensor plug pre installed. Only wiring necessary are three wires consisting of ground, power, and signal.

The plug and play throttle body harness is necessary in order to utilize the 70 or 75 millimeter throttle body that is equipped on 2nd generation motors.

elt tensioner bracket and alternator bracket allow the re use of factory alternator and belt tensioner. Zinc coated for high corrosion resistance and to add a factory look and feel.

These inverters are single channel. One inverter is required for each camshaft position sensor.

VQ35DE Motor

There are two generations of the front wheel drive VQ35DE. First generation motor 2002-2008 Maxima , 2002-2006 3.5L Altima. Second generation motor 2009+ Maxima , 2007+ 3.5L Altima. The second generation VQ35DE is equipped with an improved head and manifold design allowing for increased air flow and improved performance. Oil consumption and other flaws commonly found in first generation motors have also been eliminated.

There are two variations of the second generation VQ35DE. A Maxima motor is equipped with "EVT" ( Exhaust Valve Timing ) and has slightly higher compression when compared to an Altima motor, which is not equipped with "EVT". In most swap applications that use a Maxima motor "EVT" is not used. In order to use "EVT" a different engine management system is necessary. However "EVT" is not necessary and does not negatively affect performance or reliability if left unused.

Kit includes:

- Two cam
sensor signal inverters

- PNP throttle body adapter harness

- Belt tensioner bracket

- Alternator bracket

*We have added an option for those utilizing a 2016+ Throttle body. This newer TB requires different wiring of our TB adapter in order to work properly. Please select the appropriate option*

These are the 4 main components required for the 2nd Gen VQ35DE swap.

Just received my cam trigger wheels and swap kit from Darren. Can't wait to dig in to the project. The kit is pretty straight forward and takes the guess work out of it all. Darren has also answered every question I've had about the swap. Dude knows his stuff on this platform!!
