Hi... I have a 1993 Nissan sentra XE limited edition.
I'm wanting to upgrade the performance.
Question though. what is good to do for price and power?
should I do a engine swap or just buy parts for the GA16 like
turbo, intake and such...any links for performance parts that'll work/
thanks

I've gotten this up to 110 in fourth gear...still wasn't time to shift.
I have a question. does fifth gear do any thing? becuase mine goes like this
1st 0-31 2nd 31-60 3rd 60-90 4th 90-110+ so fifth by what i've been doing would be like high lol....

These cars are geared for quite, economical travel. 5th gear will only be used in this car if you have a lot of power. But when you are just driving around not racing use 5th to get better gas mileage.

i'm just slowly doing stuff over time so eventually i plan do have an SR20DET.
but for now i'm just doing small stuff and focusing on running good with good visuals.

question. i've heard that these top out at 110, 115 downhill.
I've gotten up to 110 with still more to go...maybe 5k rpm out of a 6800 rpm redline. is it because i got cold air?

how hard is the NS2001 turbo kit to install?
thanks..
oh and where can i find some aftermarket lights(tail mainly)
i can only find stock replacements. thanks

You can only use fwd/awd motors but you can only use the fwd trans.

I have a drop-in KN filter which produced (very slight) noticeable results, but I wouldn't go beyond that for upgrades in performance.

Heh.... You should try doing some research yourself instead of just asking everyone on here.

A great upgrade for these cars are the hotshot/pacesetter headers(hotshot yield 1-2 more hp) with a 1 3/4" or 2" mandrel bent exhaust.

Also, if you advance the ignition timing about 6 degrees and run the car on premium its good for about 5 horses.

If you upgrade your ignition with many of the MSD products you can get a little horsepower.

Also laser iridium or just iridium plugs help a good deal with responsiveness.
