Ive been reading a lot of the perf. threads, trying to learn and continue about what to do...intake is in, header/exhaust waiting to be installed. so whats next (besides ks mod/turbo) for hp/torque that would help performance obviously?

or do i do brakes/suspension/cosmetic crap?

any info would be great, still trying to learn as i go...thanks

All depends on what your looking to get out of you car...

Performance wise you can still:

Pulley's
KS
Short Shifter
Clutch
Flywheel

Suspension and brakes: this is where you really start enjoying your car, and if it's properly lowered, it's great times to drive.

Koni's and GC
Tein's SS or Basics
GIC's

Cosmetics: Kind of a waste of money, plus I think that the sentra just lowered looks awsome without any kits/lips/spoilers.

Good luck and just remember, you get what u pay for, so choose wisely

Um, JIC's? ;)

Anyway, there's a lot to do. You can go all out and be the first to do the "8500RPM" high comp QR...

this may sound like an utterly retarded question, but being i have an se-r, not a spec v, where would the clutch/short shifter come in? it wouldnt right? (overly tired as well, forgive the lapse of mental judgement, hah hah hah)

Do you particitpate in autocrossing, sanctioned racing, spirited driving in the canyons, or anything that involves full use of your car?

If you do, you might want to consider building up the suspension (JIC FLT-A2 ;)) & getting some more aggressive brake pads & stainless steel brake lines. :D Some lightweight 16" X 7" (~14 LBS) wheels with some sticky 205/55-16 or 205/50-16 tires would also be nice.

If not, then you're pretty much done there. Modding decreases the value of a car.

u have the basics and realy thats all u need for hp mods.. nothing else will give u anymore power/go any faster...get the es motor mounts.. worth the 40bucks..and maybe if u think the shifts are too long get a SS.
suspension is where its at.. our car is capable for some mean handling with a fixed suspension..and u need some hawk or axxis brake pads with some good brake fluid and SS brake lines...all the other small stuff is a waste.

wait if it's an auto than u can't do a short shifter...
if u want a good idea look at cams,clutch flywheel, motor mounts, pulley, downpipe, balance shaft for some good power
or just go around and look at other people's sig's for good ideas
