I drive a '92 se-r and was wondering what would be a good first performance item for my stock sentra?

Also anyone who has gotten a 2 coat paint job on their sentras how much did it cost?

do an intake upgrade from Jim Wolf or a Cold air intake from Hotshot (very noticeable first upgrade + affordable)

since you are in California, call up Greg Vogel (also owns a Classic SE-R) At Mossy Nissan, you can order the parts from him. www.mossyperformance.com

where in california are you? if you are in SoCal, we will be going to california Speedway this coming Sunday (15th) to Drag race, please join us.

Punch your timing up to 17*-19*, and like Sunny said, get a CAI. You can make a CAI really cheap if you can get dimensions from somone for the tube lengths and have access to a welder, or buy a used one. I refuse to buy a prefabbed CAI for $200+ for a mere 5-10hp gain, but that's just me. Make sure your ignition system is in good shape, keep your tires at the right pressure, make sure your clutch is adjusted right. A lot of simple free/cheap things will add up.

What toolapcfan said....and...

Take out the interior...or at least the back seats (21# right there)...less weight = better lap times...
Put some stickies on it...
Get a good tune up...

I'm two out of three...on that...

the back seat in a classic really barely weighs anything. get rid of your ac compressor and bracket. thats a much better weight loss there.

...how much does the compressor weight???

Like I said,..the back seats weight 21 pounds...I'll be suprised if the A/C compressor weighs more than that...

Besides...I wouldn't be willing to give up my A/C...too hot up in here...

Either
  • sway bars, or
  • 15" wheels and 205 tires
Tires and wheels help ALL aspects of car performance.

I vote wheels and tires myself. I noticed a massive improvement in handling when I mounted my SE-R wheels. The much wider and very sticky tires (Kumho Ecsta Supra 712s) make the car hold in corners at speeds unimaginable before.
