Hello all. I am new to this. I have a 1996 Black 4-door nissan sentra GXE. I would like to make some performance upgrades, and change the look a bit. I haven't done to much to it, just put in a cd player, 750 watt amp, and two 10" kickers in the trunk. Next month I plan on getting a new front bumper and tinting the windows. I am looking for some ideas of what I can do to it. I am in the US Navy with two kids, so cash is kinda limited ( my wife doesn't work at the moment), but any suggestions are greatly appreciated.

Hello all. I am new to this. I have a 1996 Black 4-door nissan sentra GXE. I would like to make some performance upgrades, and change the look a bit. You know, turn it into a performance and show car. It wasn't in to bad of shape when I took it over from my wife ( I bought her a 98 windstar because of the babies). It had some minor body damage I fixed, a hole in the front bumper, and a missing cylinder. I haven't done to much to it, just put in a cd player, 750 watt amp, and two 10" kickers in the trunk. Next month I plan on getting a new front bumper and tinting the windows. I am looking for some ideas of what I can do to it.

start with an intake and exhaust. if you want wheels but are straped for cash try finding a set of se-r wheels and then painting them to your likeing. i got mine for $250. including a set of very used tires but they got me through this season :thumbup:
im going to repaint them because i dont like the flat black

ok, that brings me to my next question, where do I get a cold air intake and exaust systems that will fit? I searched online and found them for 2000+ Sentra's and a bunch for the 200 SX's

For the exhaust, buy a Magnaflow straight through design muffler. Take it to your local muffler shop, and have the weld up a 2" crush bent cat back. Cheap and very affordable.
Now if you want the best, contact Stromung.com for the Stomung cat back system.

You can buy the hotshot cold air intake.
Or you could fab one your self. I have complete instruction on how to do this in my sig below. You will need the intake adaptor, and a filter. I suggest getting it off e bay. NOw remember this is the cheap way, not really the best way, but does work.

its all up to you bro. its your money and we are here to help each other.
if it helps any, do some minor research on products and gains. It sounds like a pain, but when you finally think it out right, you will be proud that you used your money on certain products than others

ask yourself what you are really going for.: ricer or racer. Or just to fix it up a bit.
you'll find a ton of group buys (GBs) going on, so, check often, you might find something you like for a great price.
