FAQ: Rogue Performance Parts

Postby philipa_240sx » Wed Jun 04, 2008 10:25 am

This thread lists all of the performance related (power, handling, braking) mods for the Rogue. The list is not exhaustive and if you have anything to add, please let me know.

Drivetrain:

The Rogue's has the same 2nd generation QR25DE motor as current generation Altima's and Sentra's ('07-08). It also shares some internals with the first generation QR ('02-06). Here is a list of possible mods:

Cold Air Intake:
- Injen makes a short ram CAI for the '07-08 Sentra SE-R. Injen part #SP1963P. It can be modified to fit the Rogue with a short extension pipe. Read more here: post4915157.html#p4915157
- Stillen makes a High Flow Intake for the '07-08 Sentra 2.0. Stillen part #07402961 May be possible to modify like the Injen.

Exhaust Header:
- The only header available that 'may' work is the 4-2-1 header from the 07-08 Sentra SE-R Spec-V. It may require the Sentra's midpipe as well.
- Another option is a 1st gen QR25DE header. It will bolt up to the 2nd gen motor, but there are 2 issues: The midpipe won't line up so a custom piece must be fabbed, and the ECU will have a fit and throw all sorts of codes because the header eliminates the catalytic converter.

Cat back exhaust:
- None. A custom made cat back exhaust is the only option.

Cams:
- Any cam for the QR25DE should work in the 2nd gen motor however this has not been verified yet. Jim Wolf Technology and Nismo offer cams for the 1st gen QR and claim an 8-10hp increase.

Underdrive Pulley:
- http://www.stillen.com makes an underdrive pulley for the '07-08 Sentra that should work but has not been verified yet.

ECU:
- http://uprev.com/ is a Nissan specialist tuner. They do not have applications for the Rogue yet, but they appear to be very capable and may be able to develop something for the Rogue.
- http://www.bullydog.com offers tuning modules for various Nissans. Try a search here on NICO as the Altima guys have been using their products.

Ignition:
- Nissan's direct ignition system pretty much prevents any easy mods. Timing is fixed and ECU controlled, there are no spark plug wires to upgrade, and the stock NGK platinum tipped spark plugs are pretty good.

Misc:
- I have not seen anything like a throttle body spacers as of yet.

Suspension:

The Rogue's suspension is unique and parts are not interchangeable with any other Nissan product that I know of.

Springs:
- H&R has springs for the Rogue: H&R Sport Spring Part #53025 Front lowering: -1.4" Rear lowering: -1.3"

Shocks: None

Braking:

Do a search as the Rogue shares brakes with other Nissan models listed below:

Pads:
- Front pads FMSI# D1338 - Same as the '07-08 Sentra SE-R
- Rear pads FMSI# D1288 - Same as '07 INFINITI G35, '07-08 NISSAN Altima, '07-08 NISSAN Sentra

Rotors:
- Front rotors: Nissan# 40206-JG00A - Same as the '07-08 Sentra SE-R w CVT, except Spec-V model.
- Rear rotors: Nissan# 43206-8H305 - Same as '03-05 350Z, except Brembo brake models.

After a year, I was wondering if any new after market performance parts are available, and more specifially has anybody done any mechanical mods to their Rogues?

Update:

Eddnog got the H&R springs to work.

No other updates I know of.

I have heard of some prototype turbo kits for the the '07+ Sentra SE-R... they could be adapted to the Rogue, but who knows if the CVT could handle the extra power?

One correction. EddNog got springs from qashqai. At that time H&R didn't have a kit for Rogue. They released it about a month ago.

Edit:

Found this in another post, it appears Ed is using the H&R springs designed for the Qashqai on his Rogue.

Yes, that's correct.

Oh and by the way, many aftermarket springs, "settle," in to a lower ride height than when first installed. These springs for the Rogue, however, have no gone one iota lower since I took that photo.

And they sure do ride hard.

I only recommend it to people who live in areas with extremely smooth roads or don't mind a very, very stiff ride (handling is superb, however!). Cost will be less for anyone who does it now because you can just buy the American market Rogue spring kit, which will probably be like $300 or so before install cost. I paid a lot more, to say the least.

Yup, looks like there are few retailers in the US now listing this spring. I have updated the mod list with the part no.

Update: Sept 9, 2009

ECU Tuning:

This months Nissan Sport magazine had a feature on UpRev Engine Management Solutions. UpRev offers several different products from full diagnostics to custom ECU tunes (performance chips if you want to call it that way).

They have specialized in tuning the later model Nissan ECU's, mainly the 350Z but have done other Nissan's as well. They have managed to crack many of the later model ECU's and now offer custom tunes/upgrades that can simply be downloaded to the ECU in your car/truck.

Although there is no specific Rogue ECU tune available yet, it may just be a matter of time and effort. It involves spending the time with an UpRev dealer to decode and tune the Rogue ECU. It's a long process as every Nissan ECU is slightly different. Once the first Rogue 'tune' is done, it may become available for all Rogue owners... who knows?

You can read more at UpRev's website:

I know this is nearly a 3 year old thread, but I am curious if anyone tried the header from the spec-v yet. If it fits, having a custom cat back made isn't too pricey.

As far as eliminating the precat and getting an ses light....i assume a drilled out spark plug anti fouler placed on the downstream o2 sensor would trick the ecu. This works on sentras, so shouldn't be a problem for us.

I guess basically the reason I bumped this thread is to see what, if any, modifications have been done over the past few years.
