Performance parts?

Hello I have a 2003 Sentra with a 1.8L and I’m trying to do a little bit of performance upgrades, nothing crazy. My problem is that I can’t find many companies that make performance parts for the 1.8. I was thinking start with Cold air intake, possibly exhaust and headers? I’m just having a hard time finding products. So if you would want to recommend a company that would be very helpful. Thanks

Unless you are going the forced induction route, i.e. turbocharger, you're just going to waste your money on intake and exhaust mods because the little bit of performance you "might" get out of it won't be worth the investment. Keep in mind the stock air cleaner is already a "cold air intake" design. It's plenty good enough to let enough air flow to the engine in its stock form. Now, if you want to get "crazy," you should check out what they did to this 1.8L Versa:

If you want more discussion on "performance" regarding the 1.8L, there's a site that's dedicated to the B15 you might find helpful"
