I just bought the Weapon R Ram Air Kit for my car. Does anybody know a good place to mount the scoop. What about the hood, what if I get a hood scoop?

A good place to put it would be in the box and send that shit back. I don't mean to be a dick but this isn't going to help you. Buy a cold air intake and call it good. Hey man I am just telling you like it is, how many people have you ever heard of having a Ram-Air kit on their Sentra and for gods sake don't get a hood scoop. (IMO)

Go whine somewhere else Skinny G, out of having a 98 SE Sentra, 99 SE-L Sentra, 94 SE-R and only racing (SCCA and drags) have I never heard of a "true enthusiast" putting a "Ram Air" setup on a Nissan. OK Sentra dragon maybe you should send that back and go to Home Depot and but a $5.00 dryer vent hose and direct it to your air box or intake and I would bet that if it helped any, it would be just as good as your "Ram Air" idea, but if you can't return it then "Good luck" The whole idea sounds like wasted money and ricey. (IMO)

Not really, you just keep on trucking with your XE bad boy, and keep dreaming of a real Sentra. EH?

I might drive a car that has the same body and wears the same name badge in the back but they are worlds apart. Hey at least you have the XE and not the total bottom of the barrel in an "E" Don't be mad because I answered the guy with a direct and real answer. At least I responded to him, I didn't see anybody else trying to give him any advice. Why the hell would you buy a "ram air" set up anyway without even knowing where to mount it? Kinda like ywheels and saying "will these fit on my car"

thoughless question=thoughtless answer

Mr.moderator, if you keep an letting people use up your bandwith with mind numbing questions this will soon be a rice forum and that is about it. If these guys were to go to a technical forum they would get flamed quick as hell. Maybe that is the difference in a E,XE,SE (not 98/99 Sentra) website versus the SR20 guys.

(can't we all just get along?)

This is exactly my point. It has nothing to do with your original reply, but the one I quoted above. The model you drive does not determine your level of maturity or knowledge, or intentions. All I ever hear from SE-R people is that if it doesn't have a 2.0, then the owner must only be interested in rice and not performance which is absloutely not true. The more people you have, the lower the average intelligence gets:
SE-R's are a fairly rare bird, the making up only about six to seven percent of total Sentra and 200SX production.
and obviously us GA16DE owners outnumber the SR20DE's, so this is bound to happen. When it comes down to it, the only thing that separates E's, XE's, GXE's, etc from the SE-R's is an lsd and 25 hp, which isn't much in the whole scheme of things.

I never said that having a SE-R makes me more mature or all knowing. Only one of the strongest 4cyl motors ever made with performance potential, LSD, 25hp, interior, and one of the best compacts ever built. If that is all is seperating your XE from my SE-R than yes our cars are almost identical twins. You can spend twice the $ on your engine it still wont be half the car as the SE-R. If you or any of your buddies want to spend money on your E/XE/SE then go right ahead but you will learn the hard way when you sink $1000 + on intake, header, and exhaust and see almost no gain. I have seen this first hand, and have experienced this personally. Ask anybody that has had the two cars and they will tell you the exact same thing. There is simply no comparison.

You are portraying my stereotype perfectly. Say that all you want, but we still both drive sentras. It's not a performance car in any way, it was designed as an enconobox. So yours is more perfomance 'oriented', it's still in no way a sports car. You can dump all kinds of money into your car, but guess what, there's someone out there who will tell you the same thing you just told me. Why bother spending money making an SE-R fast when you can go out and get a Z28 with over 300hp stock? Hmmm?? So don't try and use that logic. We all drive the BOTTOM of the nissan lineup, welcome back to reality.

i agree with you

my car may be a sentra and a waste of time to some people but i love my car for what it is.....its all i have and what i am going to work with!!! I may have a sr20 but i know my car is a sentra...I 'm proud to own a sentra no matter what model it is....or what options it has

we almost all drive sentras/200sx here and no matter what you do to it it will always be a sentra and nothing more than that...it might be a fast little sentra and you may take off all the badges but guess what your vin# will show up as or your title,or even your market resale value!!!!!! Thats right a Sentra...

Well you know what if I anted to have mullet and drive a Trans-Am or Camaro I would, but my car cost me $4000 try and find a Camaro that has 300hp and air for that price. I need another $1000 and the mullett boys wont even be able to play with me, add $1000 to your car and what do you have?

Ok so if I add a T28 w/ a Nismo downpipe, Nismo , 370CC injectors,Conquest intercooler w/ BOV to my SR20 that already has S3 cams and the UR pulley set w/ Nology wires and Denso Iridium plugs I am sure I can touch a camaro but maybe not a LT1, but that really doesn't matter either, all I know is that it is cars like yours that make me feel real good about mine!!!! Have a Nice day, and no hard feelings.

Hmmm, sr20ricer, how you gonna do all that turbo stuff with only $1,000? No. Way. In. Hell.

The only difference between SE-R owners and the rest of the Sentra clientele is luck and a little extra cash.

I don't think it's luck. I think if you really wanted a SE-R you would've gotten one. I know after drive an SE-R I wanted nothing else. I love the 4 door sedan but I also love my 200SX SE-R. So it's not luck or chance. But please the ricy shit don't cut it.. but if your going to go rice go all the way. go into shows. get something worth wild.

Are you talking to me? I fucking hate rice, I would never do any of that shit. That was my point, there actually are some of us GA16DE owners that are interested in performance mods. I'm focusing more on suspension myself because I realize the shortcomings of my engine, and I can always swap all my suspension if I get an SE-R after school. I think that's the biggest difference, money. Being a senior in college has lots of expenses besides tuition, I can't afford to do anything else but keep this car for now.
