    Any ideas for my 2002 SE-R Spec V

    I got a brand new 2002 Nissan Sentra SE-R Spec V. Does anyone have any idea of what I should do to make it faster for as little as possible money wise?

    Not sure on the aftermarket support for those babies as of now.. Maybe exhaust and headers, and get some nice rims and lowering springs.

    ^--- that statement will probably make everyone on here call me a "ricer" i personally hate that word. Would the v-8 boys wanna be called "domesticators"?

    Nah your fine as long as what you call lowering springs arent just the stock ones that are cut in half(trademark of a ricer lol)...but I know your not, I like Eibach myself.
    Exhaust and headers man.....

    I'd suggest getting a cold air intake. Make sure that if you get one, that it goes into the fender and not under-hood. An under-hood cold air intake will give you more power, yes, but it isn't a true cold air intake. Plus there's usually a 4-5 hp difference between under-hood and fender. And if you feel like it, get either a high-flow catalytic converter, or remove it completely. That should add about 10hp.

    no buddy removing the catylitic converter isn't worth what you would do to the enviroment and how loud it would be. Todays cars have very effiecent convertors so the hp increase would be barely noticable and not worth the side effects mainly the one that happens come inspection time. and from what i heard a hi flo cat is only a good option if youre stock one is messed up. Remember we are not dealing with a old dinosouar muscle car but a late model import. the cat don't really rob that much horsepower nowadays

    Ya get one of those that goes intot the fender ! The high flow nissan filter is much more restrictive than the half size aftermarket one you can get to go in the fender where it can **** gallons of water into your new engine , Oh by the way that is not coverd by your warranty !! I think the bill was only $5600 on the last one

    The engine in your car has what 170 HP , Why mess with a good thing , Nissan prides in making the most HP available for any giving engine , Added all this aftermarket crap i.e. cold air intakes which take the air from a hot engine compartment instead of actuall cool air you stock air box gets is the stupidest thing I have ever seen
    will not give you any noticable horsepower . Leave it alone its already a cool car with plenty of go !

    noticable is the keyword...your right, even with that intake, you wont be able to notice anything. Same thing for RCA's...wont notice any audible difference between a $3 pair and a $10 pair.

    You hit it but forgot to mention that f removed it will make his (SES) service engine soon light to come on , The cats on OBD-2 cars are monitored with O2 sensors in front and behind the convertor to insure proper opperation !
