2003 Nissan Sentra SE-R Spec V 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl 6M)
The nissan sentra se-r spec v, is an easy vehicle to maintain, all you need to do is keep up the usual maintenance and the spec v will be very reliable. the spec v does have alot of torque steer but you get used to it after awhile. the suspension setup in the spec v is ready for auto x, when you toss the spec v around the corners at higher speeds the spec v feels like its right at home. when you want to pass someone on the freeway it could be done in fifth gear without any problems. where else can you find 175hp, 180ft/tq with a helical limited slip differential, 6 speed manual transmission, auto x ready suspension and a fun car to drive for less that 20 thousand dollars.
auto x ready suspension, helical limited slip differential, 6 speed manual transmission.
As far a performance wise goes, I suggest better tires, lower the vehicle, AEM cold-air intake, Hotshot Header, and Nismo s-tune exhaust, and with this set up or something similar you should be good to go. and if you do not want performance then your spec v is good as it is.
