I have a lack of funds due to the boss (my wife) and I don't want to waste my money on crappy performance parts for the spec v. So I was wondering if anyone could tell me how to spend $650 and get the most bang for my buck??


2002 Nissan Sentra Spec v

Hotshot is running a combo-type special for $575 (I think, check their website) for the header and thier CAI including shipping. Thats alot cheaper than buying the parts individually. Other than that I would say try to get in on group buys, that will also save you some scratch. I'm basically in the same boat as you!

I have a K&N drop in filter that was only $40 and I picked up 5 HP on the dyno. Pretty good for $40. Exhausts start at about $300 and up.

I got mine at Autozone for $40. It is not a cone filter which is what I think you are thinking of. Its a drop in OEM style air filter that looks pretty much just like your Nissan filter. It just flows more air and is cleanable. It pretty much pays for itself after 30k miles cause you'd have to replace the OEM filter 3 times by then.

I forget what the part number is but I'm sure its posted on here somewhere or on www.b15sentra.net for sure.

This drop in filter is NOT the one actually made for the Spec V but will obviously work. I have talked with K&N twice and they told me both times the drop in made for the SpecV is not available yet but will be shortly (by fall). I guess the other can be made to fit.

There is no "make to fit", it fits! I've had it for 3 months so I guess that I would know. I've also dynoed my car stock and with the K&N. It showed nearly 5HP and 7 lb. ft. torque. Case closed.
