Adding horsepower

Hello everyone, I have a 2007 Nissan Altima 2.5 S with the automatic CVT Transmission. What i am wondering is what would be the best way to add horsepower without adding a Turbo, I do know the basics like adding an aftermarket Intake and Exhaust. And if i had to buy a turbo to add more horsepower, what PSI can a stock CVT handle up to, and what kind of Turbo/Turbo setup would be recommended?

Well they mate the Nissan CVT with the 270HP VQ...if you get that much out of your QR you're doing really well

So you want to get the same performance basically as a turbo intercooled Audi 3.0 engine out of your naturally aspirated Nissan 2.5? You figure that out, and you can make a pile of money!

As for bang for your buck, you might look at putting as much of the Sentra SER setup into your Altima as you can, that gets you more HP AND a limited slip differential, so lots more fun for relatively way less cash. That's my free advice.

If wanting that kind of power NA, your best to just get the V6 Altima or do a swap.

Minor gains wise, Header, Intake, Exhaust, Pulley good start and feel more responsive over stock.

Many QR25DE/VQ35DE Header options & o2 Spacers, intakes and exhaust!
