Performance Mods

I am new to the forums. I currently have a 2013 Altima S 2.5 all stock. I want to add some performance upgrades to it adding more HP and deeper sound to it. Do you guys have any recommendations?

I have a current list of mods I plan on doing.
  1. Window Tints
  2. Teana Tails
  3. Eyelids
  4. DRL Switch backs
  5. HID Kit
  6. Intake
  7. Stillen Front Lip Spoiler
  8. Suspension
  9. Stillen Exhaust or MagnaFlow (Have any of you retro fitted?)
  10. Rims
  11. Fog Lights
  12. Brakes
  13. Possible paint job too.
  14. Other misc. performance parts

Any suggestions on brands?

This ^^^^^^

There isn't much "performance" on any of your mods listed except for the intake.

The factory exhaust is so sorry that any kind of aftermarket exhaust setup should make a noticeable boost in power.

Has anyone really ever tackled the 2.5 and a turbo setup? Ive been playing around with the idea for awhile, and graphing one of the kits for the QR25 on here for fun.

Hmm point taken. Call OBX and ask if part # 10-2306-4 is real or a fake.

The best performance mod you can get for a 2018 or older Altima if you drive the 2.5, is to sell it and get a 3.5
