The time has came to sell my VQ Sentra as I’m moving to California and am downsizing to one car.
There is 185-195,000 on the body (the newer cluster reads around 141,000). There is 110,000 on the VQ35DE engine it’s out of 06 Nissan Quest (these motors are pretty well protected from abuse versus ones in the maxima 3.5l six speeds from being down-tuned in their ecu).
She’s a 6 speed manual is from a 2005 Nissan Maxima. So for all intensive purposes the car is a 2005 Nissan Maxima 3.5l.
The only real engine mods is the 350z intake plenum, obx shorty headers, and a custom exhaust with a vibrant and Borla muffler. Wanted to keep it reliable as spirited a daily driven.
-2J Racing ECU - they modify an 05 350z ecu specifically for this purpose
-2J Racing wiring harnesses
-2J Racing custom motor mounts
-2J Racing custom lower radiator tube
Engine maintenance; things done in the past two years
-Timing chain and guides

Lights and Audio:

-pioneer Bluetooth radio
-alpine speakers in front doors
-wired for a powered sub (wires can be easily hidden if not used)
-Comes with a nismo style front lip (discontinued), painted never installed, is a bit scuffed from being the garage with other parts.
Give it a test drive and I promise you’ll fall in love with it.
Cheap to insure
Lightweight (2700lbs vs a 350z at 3,200lbs)
Very reliable motor that has had all the common issues already dealt with and has been meticulously maintained.
Pretty fast car without having to worry about added liability of being boosted
A beast in the snow FWD.
Perfect spirited daily and was my daily for years.
A/C leak by compressor (a shop found with it with UV). I think it’s probably just an o-ring. Will try swapping it out in the next couple days
Life happens and now I have to sell her for cheap so let me know if you are interested and I’ll answer any questions you have.
I got more pictures of the whole car and videos of it running, etc. So shoot feel free to shoot me a text or pm.
