D– DOHC
V– VVL (Variable Valve Lift)
Fuel delivery i– Throttle Body Fuel Injection
E– Electronic Port Fuel Injection
D– Direct Cylinder Fuel Injection
N– Natural gas fueled
P– LPG fueled

For old engines:
S– Carburetor
T– Twin carburetor

Power adder R– Supercharged
T– Turbocharged
Ti– Turbocharged and intercooled
TT– Twin-Turbocharged
2nd power adder R– Supercharged
T– Turbocharged
Ti– Turbocharged and intercooled
TT– Twin-Turbocharged
Special HR– High Response and High Revolution

*- Nissan Motors does not have a letter designation for the SOHC configuration so the camshaft configuration type is assumed as SOHC if no letter is present (example: L28ET).

Example: VQ30DET

VQ – VQ engine family;
30 – 30 deciliters (3.0 liters);
D – DOHC (dual overhead camshafts);
E – electronic port fuel injection;
T – turbocharged;
