Yeah, it's her car so she's the boss. I get creative license over it as long as I follow three rules. It has to stay stock ride height, it has to stay auto, and it has to have factory reliability.

Put on the 2J manifold and their 255 fuel pump. Found that the power wire from the plug to the pump was burnt so I replaced the housing. Afterwards mpgs went from 28 to 31.5

Hello

good to see, such a clean build, well thought out
goals clear and delivered
very nice

mine is a little more confused
lol

imo
your right,
NA provides the best reliability and the least maintenance
in the sentra modding arena

the use of the b16 pistons and crank but ditching the b16 rods
is a good idea too

i was able to destroy the rods in about 8 months
my 2j rods are still here after 4 years at higher output

the plenum should be perfect for an auto
really pumps up low and mid range
[194 ft lb tq on my NA build]

interested to see what you can do with the auto

i found the tune essential to really good operation
gained both mpg, power
[10 hp and 20 ft lb more and better street performance]

imo



good times coming
hope your wife enjoys your effort

very nice street build
congrats

and the tune will really help
make sure he knows you need a tune for mpg too
[you will have the capability of more than 1 tune, with uprev]

Thanks, she's been loving it. It had been having transmission issues before I replaced the engine. So while the engine was out I picked up a low mileage 02-03 transmission. I think the higher final drive gears with the taller tires(205/55/16) is making it a little doggy on the bottom end. After the tune we'll decide what direction to take with the transmission. If it's not needed we want to do full paint in the spring. Thinking hok galaxy grey w/ fireball flake.

smaller diameter wider tires are the answer
imo
225/50/16, 25" tall
or for all out, needs 8" wide wheels, 245/45/16's, 24.3" tall


here is my little NA charger so equipped
16x8s 35mm et, with 10 mm spacers and 245/45/16s

assuming thats pre and post tune

the tune worked well,
delivering near the expected gains
esp in mid range tq [3500-4700 rpm] imo

and it pulled all the way to red line

can you notice the difference in driving it?



the overall numbers seemed a bit low, however every dyno is different
and what counts are comparative runs on the same dyno

which imo show very good results here
