from what i hear nos is very safe, especially because the altimas internals are very strong (from what i hear)

Umm turbo. I'm pretty sure those things run low 15sso you don't have much of a chance. I can only think of two all motor Altimas that are near that, and that is with a lot of mods. Nitrous would be your best bet. Pull out some of his spark plug wires. :p

Altima 5-speed 3.5 SEs run about 14.7 so I think with a slushbox it may be possible to hang. And I'd go with Headers and Exhaust (cat, muffler & full piping). But I think you'll mostly hang from a rolling start.

Your borther's car is making 90 more hp over you. Plus the new Altima isn't much heavier than the 2nd gen. I think you will get smoked everytime. Maybe your brother wasn't really punching it and is still going easy breaking it in. It didn't sound like he was flooring it.
