thanks for all the comments! :)

the reasone the car sits so low is because the speaker box i have in the trunk makes the ass sag. so to counter that out i had to heat the front springs which dropped it an extra half inch.

Couple questions if ya don't mind...

Where's your other wheel?!?

How's that OBX sound? Is it deep, nice, raspy, ricey, etc?

2 1/2 seems, a little big, drop it down to 2" or no more than 2 1/4" and you'll feel a better power gain.

And you heated up your front springs? Did it actually work?? I've never heard of that done before, probably never would have, good thoughts!

And are those 17" TSW Revos' or whatever they're called?

that pic with the stocks on the front is an older pic. i was bored one day and decided to burn off some rubber and didn't feel like tearin the shit outa my $150 tires. i have all 4 rims on now.

the obx muffler sounded really good when i first got it. it wasn't loud at all and it sounded really deep and crisp. but now it's all rusted out and sounds like crap!

and yes i really did heat the front springs. actually, i didn't do it myself. this guy that owns his own shop charges $10 a spring to heat them. it's a really cheap lowering job if you don't care about your springs or how your car will ride. but with only lowering it an extra half inch didn't effect the way the car rides.

yes the rims are 17" tsw revos.

i went with 2 1/2" piping because that's what everyone said i should get.

you guys really think having 2 1/2" pipping is robbing hp?

yea dude, if you had 2 1/4 that would be better, it also depends on how nuts you go with your car, you wont really benefit from the 2 1/4 let alone the 2 1/2 until you get a lot more done to the car, i mean like bigger cams, ecu, injectors, MSD (type) ignition, bigger throtle body, port and polish and things of that nature. if your not planing on continuing with your upgrades to that point i would redo the exhaust, trust me man, you'll be lovin life with the smaller pipping. BUT .. what are your plans anyways?? i can help i bet money on it! i have that same engine and i'm some what of an expert on it, so if you need help give me a holla.

well if i had the money i'd get cams, cam gears, pullys, high flow cat, and an ecu upgrade. once i get my header the next thing on the list is going to be a bigger cams. i'll be doing the work myself and don't really know how, so any advice you can offer would be a great help.

my best advice is NOT to do the cams yourself, because you have to re-shim the valves, have a mechanic do it, OR take an auto class and do it in class where you can have the teacher supervise the project. are you still in HS? if you are then look in to an auto class there, thats great if they do, 'cause then you wont even have to spend money to learn this stuff. if not go to your local Jr college and sign up for an auto class, it will be the best money you ever spend, you'll be able to save mad money by doing most of your mods and matenance in there, and you get the added bonus of being able to know what your talking about. knowlege is the key to everything, and that includes cars!

another benefit of going to auto classes is that when you go to the mechanic and they try and tell you some bogus bullshit like "ahh, your muffler bearing are out, " you can just point and laugh and tell them that you're goin to tell everyone you know that there total crooks. and usally you can get a GREAT deals after that, becuase they dont want a rep as crooks. or you can just tell them to stick it and tell everyone not to go there. so the class has many uses other then just learning to do shit yourself.

another big tip to having work done is too actually stand there and watch them do it. and time how long it takes, so if they try and give you a bill for 5hrs of work and it really took 2 you can be all, i dont think so!

anyways, good luck anyother questions, holla.

nah i'm not in HS. i'm a sophomore in college, studying computer network administration.

a buddy of mine has an older 8 valve gti that he put an aftermarket cam in himself. he said it wasn't that hard of a job. he offered to help me when i do mine, and i figure as long as i follow the sentra "bible" i'd be okay.

any-hoo, i won't be doing the cams for a little while so i'll probably look into taking a mechanics class just for the hell of it. i was already planning on taking an auto-body class so i can fix dents and that sort of thing so i might as well take them together.

thanks for the advice, btw! :cool:
