I got a 1994 Nissan Sentra XE and I need some fast HP gains.I have a low budget income (usual for a 16 year old lol) and I need some fast ways for some more HP.As of right now, I have a legendary home-made air intake,muffler,spark plugs,plug wires,and I have advanced the timing.I know they make turbo's and headers but I can't afford them so if any of you have any advice I'd love to hear it :) .Thanks

I started out with a hotshot CAI and the Unorthadox lightweight racing pulley. Those are pretty cheap and they added a descent amount of HP. They are about $200 each. I'd start with those. And yes, check out www.sentra.net that is where I made all of my decisions on what to buy for my car.

This may sound bad, but honestly, our cars aren't exactly the cheapest to mod. You may want to look around for something that has a little more power to start with and better aftermarket support (like an SR20 car). The only way you'll get big numbers with a GA16 is with a turbo or a jet engine.

HOLY CAPS LOCK BATMAN!!!!! just do the basic bolt ons. That should be good. And they did that rocket car on Monster Garage.

Sorry Batman's key board is a cap queen , really didnt know that i know they did the land speed semi truck which hit like 200 miles and hour or something and yeah bolt ons are always the best way to go on tight budget most can tell you that from here :thumbup:

-change your plugs and wires back to your OEM stuff (the OEM is the best for our cars)
- if you have am aftermarket muffler on a stock exhaust i bet it sounds like a turd :thumbup:

if you can afford HP, start collecting suspension bits. buy some hypercoil springs off of www.sr20forum.com in the classifieds section, black_ser95 has a AGX shock GB going on (check out my sig) search for some motiv rear mounts, and koni bump stops! your car will be an auto-xing machine! you dont need to buy it all at once, just one by one (but dont instal it that way! well i guess you could instal the shocks on your stock springs) get the ebay strut tower bars. enjoy! :cheers:

please explain, nitrous is just as safe as any other bolt on if done correctly, you can rune your car if you dont put your CAI on correctly!

.....if you put your CAI on wrong your engine wont explod

NO2 is only to be used by those who know what they are doing, not to be used on the street, if you push it for shits and giggles you could SLAM into a car in front of you. you could loose traction very easly. its not good unless you know what you are doing.
