i'm trying to get the biggest bang for my buck here (as much hp as i can get in a 1999 alti auto)...i don't really know if it's possible to have somebody make a turbo for the 1999...but is there anyone out there that will do it...and would i get more hp with nitrous or a custom turbo (if anyone out there even does it)...the overall goal that i'm trying to get at is i want as much hp as i can get...and i don't know if i should go turbo or nitrous.....the money thing is not an option and i have experience driving a civic with nitrous...so help!

why not just go all motor first. if i would do it over, i would go all motor first. best bang for the buck before turbo or n20

you can get a shop or someone to make a kit for you. i know people who make manifolds, so i'm sure a shop could do it for you. and i guess you would have to get stand alone or a earlier model ecu tuned by jwt. n20 is good. i like my setup. but now i run into problems. tranny buildup, engine buildup and standalone. and before the engine build up, i would need a stand alone or tranny. you are going to run into the same problem. especially with auto. i can't go any faster till i get a tranny

protorque for torque convertor. and level ten for tranny but expensive. i am eventually try to get one built at a better price or shop around. you can at least get the valve body from maximum tuning i think.

^ you can do a full build up form Maximum tuning... I have the level 10 TC and VB and absolutely love it. as for the best bang for the buck, nitrous is hands down. check in your other post in the engine forum for more info.

^yeah n20 is the best and cheap way to go. but just can't go any faster till you do engine buildup. i guess what i meant to say is do a build up first or put on n20 while doing the buildup. with slicks on an auto with bolt-ons you are losine4 second off yopur time with the juice:) . do what ryan or i did and put some slicks on and you should be in the 13's. thats if you just happy with that. i know i'm not. i want a streetable 12 sec car.

would you really gain that much off of running the bottle? How big of shot are you talking about? What would a large shot be for an altima, but be safe at the same time, mine is my daily driver so i can't have it screwing up.

yes and i'm running a 70 but you can get there with a 60. i got 14.4 with a 60 and no pulley on shitty tires with chrome rims. so i'm sure juicing right off the line with slicks could get you to break into 13's maybe. will just have to see how much time i take off with slicks in spring. and look at the dyno numbers. theoretically with that number and my weight you can pull a 14.2. i've pulled 14.4 with less and loss hp.

^yep, n20 makes a big diff. ryan took a lot off his time. he has cams and ecu to top the rest of the bolt-ons. the only thing he doesn't have is the magic auto tranny.:D
