Well,
We have decided instead of trading in, to keep Ssmith's 1997 Nissan 200sx se

This car is in great shape, and has been maintained very well, with 109k on the odometer. Not to mention, it is rarely seen on the road-there really aren't that many of them around.
While I was replacing the brakes and hubs-bearings, I noted a torn cv boot on the passenger side. Since then it has developed into a clicking on hard right hand turns. I have 2 new cv axles in the garage-so, it's time to go to work!!

Here are 2 pics-a side shot and the engine bay-

Sheri's desired outcome is:

Budget-3500.00

Lowered about 1" with a nice riding strut-spring system
17" wheels-some kind of dark color in center with a silver rim
seats from an infinity ( g20?)
New headlights and tail lights
Tinted windows
new paint, same color

ENGINE
desired 20hp more -(just an estimate). This thing has a hard time maintaining 70mph with the ac turned on. It does however get an honest 31mpg

I plan on an intake-header/exhaust setup with maybe even a turbo install-just a mild one. This thing has plenty of room right where it needs to go-
Then I need to bling it up a bit-

Your mission
convince Sheri the turbo is needed, and show me some idea for inspiration, because this is beginning as soon as we return from Colorado!!

I know there are some Nissan guys here-speak up now please.

What is the compression, and what kind of PCM programmers are available?

Is that what you wanted?! Amazing what you can do with Paint nowadays.... :D

One place I recommend to look for possible parts available, especially for imports like Nissan and Hondas, is andysautosport.com

You can search by car style, and they list just about anything you'd want and what's available. They are sometimes expensive, and most times you can find it cheaper, but it's good to look through parts.

Here's their site for your vehicle above:

If I ever had a Nissan that this engine could fit into, I wouldn't do anything else until that engine made it into my car.

In my opinion, it's one of the best import engines made..

Alright Sheri. I'll consider the adoption thing if you let Jon put a turbo in the Sentra. :) Plus you want to have him take vids of you doing to burn outs and race each other.

Well--if it's extra power you are looking for, you know you don't need to touch the engine. First thing, watch "Fast and the Furious", the first one. That will instruct you how to tune the NOS timer so you will run 9's.

For the extra power, all you need is a type R badge, NOS sticker, wheelie bars, and carbon hood. Takes care of everything:D

(psst-that was the one FROADER did. I just used it to save me the trouble of putting new wheels on and tint:D)

actually-
not digging the rims at all, but it is an idea--

I think they need to be a larger wheel than stock, in a cast aluminum color-nothing brighter than the car-
don't you think?

hmm,
The color is right, but I think the wheels too heavy looking. They look like an Altima wheel??

thanks-Colin,
please, if you don't mind, I would like to try to find a wheel style and have it stuck on there-

we could play this game all night--

This reminds me of a buddy. He has a 1993 Chevy Blazer, has about a 3-4 inch lift on it with 33x10.50 tires (i think). His Dad gave it to him, except it has the SS badges on the back and inside, almost anywhere it says Blazer is has the SS badge you can buy at Autozone. lol. Hence the nickname "the SS".

I'm thinking about some Cobra badges for mine... lol. 500 hp instantly.

The 200sx has a lot of potential. With some tasteful mods, they can look really nice. This brings me back to the days of my G20.

G20! I've wanted one for a while...

If you're having problems keeping it at 70mph with the A/C on, I'd look at the basic modifications. Exhaust and Intake. More specifically a cold air intake and not a short ram, cold air's help better at higher speeds then short rams..
