That's because you went to the wrong part of Canada! lol!
It's all happening in Toronto.

Actually, that's a nice drive from Cali to BC. I did that a while ago and it was one of the best coastal drives I've done!

If you are talking about the import scene, it's nothing like what I saw in the greater L.A. area. I would say that Vancouver, B.C. has a larger following than Seattle. That was the first place I saw tuner shops inside a mall. Around the Richmond area I see more hooked-up luxury (BMW) and higher end cars (like Supras and RX-7s). In Seattle I've notice more ghetto rice (mine included) :D

The scene is ok .... Certanly no Cali. but we have some cool cars , yea lots of rice , but I can think of alot of really nice , quick imports .... there are 2 main drag tracks , Woodburn Or. and Portland International Raceway ( drag and road race ) ...... So there are lots of chances to race and show off your car !!! Woodburn has monthly Import drags in the summer , and PIR has late night drags most Fri. and Sat. nights !!! The one thing I do notice around here thats even different from Seattle is , people in Portland seem to stay to themselfs ..... It is rare that I have someone come up and ask about my car ....... Even at the track !!! When we went to the Seattle NIRA race with my brothers G20 we had crazy amounts of people asking about the car !!! Anyways when you get here look me up , we need a Nissan meet sometime soon !!!

There are a lot of car shows at Pacific Raceway out towards covington off hwy 18, (SIR to some). its under new management so they are putting on a lot of stuff. summer is over so it is dieing down again. but there is something going on every weekend. or you can go to the illegall drags in Renton.

Dude,
You're not suppose to disclose the drag at Renton but ooops, I guess it's too late! Just kidding bro! I've been there several times (each time I go, my Alty comes back crying!) and haven't been lately! How's everything down there?

Cops already know about renton. they are always there. thats why we just meet there and head to other places. The location always changes though. i just got my altima and am starting to fix it up. any ideas on a good engine.

Did you say you just got your Altima? Is this the 1994 one or you're talking about a "brand new" one i.e. 02 or 03?

if its the 94 one, than do a SR20DET swap or build the engine up for a turbo

SR20DET isnt an easy swap...lots of fabrication needts to be done..the block will fit fine, just fabs to motor mounts, sttering shaft, exhaust manifold, etc etc...
