i have a 97 auto GXE, with just a few mods and 70k miles on her, it's been awesome to me except a few minor problems. Just got a 03 maxima (still representing nissan) SE 6 speed (1 month ago). So i'm gonna gear more towards that, but still gonna have the alty as my everday driving baby!!

Right now on the max, i have: 18" x 8 OZ racing supperlaggera 3 piece forged, wraped in mich pilot sport. Frankencar Intake with apxi filter, Cattman y-pipe, stillen front tower brace and rear anti sway bar. stock dynoed at 206 hp, now i'm sitting at 225. running in at a decent 13.95 quater with a 2.17 60'

anyways just wanna thank everyone's help!

>> no matter how much the max is faster, Alty is still the best in my mind <<

You broke a 13 in a Max with just bolt on's? I'd love to see that slip......A friend of mine runs a sc'd 99 Max and only runs mid 13's.

Plus the 6-Speeds gives you a better set of gears to work with because the ratios are closer together.

260hp is at the flywheel. The 225hp is at the wheels

ohh ok.Damm,it losses a lot of HP :(
Well from what I understand that was posted before, Nissan lied when they stated the 260hp. It was actually the same as the Altima, 240hp. But I haven't been here in awhile and haven't been on .org so I don't know what the story with that was. But yeah, the hp numbers that manufacturers put out are the flywheel numbers and not at the wheels

you sure it was a 3.5 and not a 2.5? The 3.5 is pretty quik for the size of the car.

There is no way a 3.5se will feel anything like your 97 altima.

you people have to in acount that u typically lose 20 to 30% due to the drive train so if u figure the maxima has 260 at the flywheel subtract 20% (which is 52) you get 208 at the wheels. Which means lordhowe's car was right wear it should have been.

What kind of car(s) do you drive to think that a 14 second car is slow? Either all the cars you ride in are 13 seconds or faster, I don't think your sense of speed is all that great.
