Hello Everyone! I own a '18 Rogue Sport that I have fell in love with over my past year and a half of ownership. I quickly found out that I was better off sourcing parts for the Qashqai as there was nothing available for the Rogue Sport. I've completely redone the suspension with Ceika adjustable Coilovers and swapped out the wheels with Rotoform 19"s. Car handles beautifully in the corners and on the road in general with this combination. This also made it look so much better imo as I always felt it sat too high when I first bought it, and the changeover made it far more sleek and gave it a much better look overall.
I have recently became very ambitious to take her to the next level. I will be purchasing an identical engine to have the internals built and adding boost, while still being able to drive the car with the original engine in it during this process. Once I do the swap I'll have the original engine as a backup just in case. Even more ambitious, after recently discovering that the Qashqai comes in a 6mt in Australia and Canada, I will be sourcing one out and related components for my build as the CVT is just not capable of handling any more than what the stock engine has currently. The challenge is going to be going 6mt while retaining AWD. The 6mt only comes from the factory in FWD.
Any suggestions and thoughts are greatly appreciated!
