Yeah I talked to Jaime and he brought a tech over, I think he said he was a head-tech. Guys name was JC, he took the maxima.org and altimas.net printouts and said he had to "research it". Then when they were done (he also adjusted a couple of my setting, just like you did) we went into Jamie's cube and JC gave me the printouts and explained everything to me, I never felt like I had to convince em' much. JC just warned me that the car might run rougher and my MPG would drop a bit, and I was like cool anything for more power, then Jaime challenged me with his Lightning .M|22 said:waddy, i probably have the numbers backwards i didn't get a printout either, makes me wonder now!
i just told them i wanted the timing advanced 3 degrees, and i assume that's what they did...
you talked to jaime, right?
i saw someone else, who didn't want to do it at first, but finally agreed
Judging by the way you say it's performing I'm sure they did it. but like you said the guy didn't really want to do it, he may have just BS'ed you, did he charge you? Cuz they charged me, for both the setting adjustment AND the timing advance, greedy fuckers! I was prepared to pay for the timing, and it was only $80 total but still they could've done the settings for free, guess everybody over there isn't as cool as Shannon .M|22 said:Wonder if I should check up on it and get a printout from another dealer? Just makes me wonder now...
How can you not be sure? They had me in the service dept waiting area for 20 minutes afterwards because they forgot to the oil-change and then I had to go the cashier and pay before I left. What you '03 guy's get an upgraded interior AND free service! Dammit I'm calling the NAACP this is discrimination against non-titanium accented interior car owners!M|22 said:I'm not sure if they charged me or not. I did get some other work done (oil and transmission fluid change) at the same time, so it may have been included in one of those.
I did ask them to change some settings, but I haven't had a chance to see if they were actually changed or not.
I hashed through this once, Nissan tried this themselves and said you don't gain that much, maybe one tenth in a quarter mile. It would be interesting to see how much you actually gain. Sounds like if you like the low to mid range torque you gain go ahead and have it done.rpny said:I just read through all of the maxima.org and altimas.net postings about this subject. VERY INFORMATIVE.. and in conclusion ... I will wait to have my timing advanced. IF it does yeild us +5hp, then I may have to go through with it, but no one has proof, just "feelings" of extra torque and such. NOt saying that I don't believe em, I'm sure it does pull harder.. I would just like to see it in black and white. Plus i'm in no rush to have a pretty fast a tad faster. Just my input.
I believe the rubber in those tires is too hard, People tell me Dunlops are the same way. If you get new treads it's always good to check around and get a softer tire.Buddy02 said:True but the Bridgestone stockers SUCK! I drove in the rain yesterday and they really suck! I need to rubber.
I like the BFG KDW's Ihave those on my Cutlass. They are nice!Hardcore said:I believe the rubber in those tires is too hard, People tell me Dunlops are the same way. If you get new treads it's always good to check around and get a softer tire.
