is this because you love Honda?
Honda everyone of their cars is nothing but a rice bucket sorry.
And what's an Altima?
let me guess you drive a civic right? you probably got yourself a 10psi turbo, and some stickers your pushing 350 whp on a half ton car and your happy right?
Altima is a 2.5 or 3.5 vde engine based car which is front wheel drive, with the coupe pushing 300hp and being just .1 sec slower then the g35. the maxima being its older brother in the Nissan family.
oh and wait which car did Honda make that comes near the GTR? um Honda= fail.
Naw I don't love Honda; I actually don't have a bias for any manufacturer because that's STUPID.
But keep talking about how great Nissans are because it's really entertaining.
When I was younger I was a lot boy at a Nissan/Honda dealer and I drove the great Nissans you're talking about. If you think those are awesome cars, I feel bad for you
No actually I don't have a Civic, and what's a 10psi turbo? Last time I checked they didn't name turbos after how many pounds of boost you decide to run with them.
Sorry, Altima's are shit. Driven the new ones, don't like them. Driven and worked on the old ones, nothing more than a basic economy car, like a Civic.
And just for shits I'd like to see an NSX vs a GTR on a road course.
And yes, I would be happy with a 350whp Civic.. I don't see how that is relevant?
You sound like my friend at work who can't stop blowing motors on his 300ZX and thinks Nissan's are the end-all. Entertaining.
something you probably don't understand my friend. each manufacture has their own way of designing cars.
BMW has great power, and performance, while Honda is pure cheapness, its a car to get from point A to point B. Nissan makes luxury performance cars. as does infinity so your tiny brain understand a little more Nissan is the owner of infinity similar to Toyota owning Lexus, and Honda owning Acura.
say when you think of ford you think of American muscle the mustang and the f-150 cuz them shits push tons of power, but have no handling, no luxury and relay nothing good to their looks imo.
when you think Nissan you think gtr or maxima, even the altima is now cool. you get the phrase of Japanese engineering.
with BMW, AUDI you get top of the line handling think German engineering.
when you think BENZ you get the feeling of class and style. so each manufacture has an image, and a style so when someone favors say Nissan (i had a 96 maxima which i rebuilt by myself completely to be pushing 380 hp na).
so you cant say its stupid my friend you just have to understand them a little more.
next time you call someone a moron think 2x cuz it may be you who's the dummy,
Nissan does not make luxury performance cars. If you think some leather seats and a nice CD player is luxury, I feel bad for you. If you think a VG30 is performance, I also feel bad for you.
Infiniti makes anything you'd consider "luxury" by Nissan.
As well as Honda does not make luxury cars, that's what Acura is for. You just nulled and voided your whole argument there.
bro the 300zx is an old school 20 year old car. suck a nut i had one of those two and it would rip your civic in half.
a 10 psi turbo is a turbo that provides 10 psi of boost to your engine. no they don't name the turbo to how many psi but i was asking if that's what your civic is boosted at.
NSX vs a GTR
^^ hahahahahahahaha gtr will smoke you before you leave first gear my friend.
civic= rice bucket
altima still has some class. but fuck the altima Nissan is good with maxima alone. which is my favorite personally.
Maxima is for old men. It's terrible
You're so brand loyal it's hilarious. An Altima is essentially THE SAME FUCKING THING as a Civic. And you obviously can't read for shit either, because I clearly stated that I DO NOT own a Civic, so you can go ahead and "rip my Civic in half" all day.
You're a retard.
maixma is a luxury sports sedan has been from 1989-2009 and will stay that way until atleast 2012 but i dough they will change anything.
um vg hasn't been used in a min. since 95 the vde(-k) has been the engine they use and that is a mean engine. bro the only way to settle this is on the track, any Honda loving ricer that ever argues that a Honda is better then a Nissan i meat and Embarrass on the track and ill do the same to you and your civic.
ban bigred plz.
What kind of track are we talking here? Road course or are you one of those drag race only guys?
Did you even read what I posted, for the second time?
That reminds me, the majority of people that bought Maximas when I was working at Nissan were old men with their pants hiked up to their chest.
Says a lot about the design
i don't even know much about cars and I know maxima is not a luxury sports sedan...
being a fanboy about anything is ridiculous. everything has it's purpose and it's positives/negatives.
Arguing with this dude is pointless, because it's obviously clear that nobody can make a better car than Nissan. And if you think otherwise, he'll meat you at the track and Embarrass you with his oh-so-luxurious '96 Maxima, which will shit on your imaginary Civic.
And when he's done with that, he'll hook up with OcTaNe91, the girl of his dreams.
i'm sorry what is it that you drive? becouse if you think max is for old men i have a lot of news for you. and a lot of men that will show you otherwise.
my 96 monds and specs
-true cold air
-custom 3" exhaust with headers
-power heated and leather seats from the i30
-5 speed de-k trans
- colder spark plugs
- welded 3.0>3.2 with titanium reinforcements.
-full street tune.
-17" light weight rims
-more shit i don't recall. there is more then enough reason to love the max.
pushing 380hp to the front wheels. used to rip civics like they where standing still, ripped g's, and corvettes, and porches, and fuck the world almost nothing took me.
road course i can do inline or rally whatever you want.
Sounds like a real track monster! All that 'power' but no brakes?
lol half those "specs" are just common things like "springs".
i find it funny you are comparing a maxima to a civic. they aren't even in the same class.
and, yes, most people who own maxima's are older men. you can make ANY car look and drive better. hell, people out here pimp toyota camry's for god sakes lol.
drilled and slotted rotors with brembos, on low pro falcons. you have to excuse my lack of focus cuz a. i dont know what you drive and b. i mentioned more stuff i cant recall.
Oh shit, a true cold air intake! 3 INCH EXHAUST?! A PLENUM?! NO CARS HAVE PLENUMS, THAT'S RACING AS FUCK!
Half of that dumb shit you listed has nothing to do with the performance of the car, much less necessary for an almost stock motor which is what I'm perceiving here.
Why would you need more fuel if you're not adding more air? I'm not seeing any head work, internals(except "welded" 3.0 to 3.2), and you say you were pushing 380hp N/A? Yeah fucking right.
And for the record, they still use the VG in XTerra's, and your beloved VD is the same shit, maybe just DOHC. Sorry homie. I'm gonna go install a sunroof and a carbon fiber trunk so I can have 380hp. Just remember, it's not the car that makes the ricer, it's the owner.
I drive a bone stock 1989 Honda Civic with 260,000 miles
yeah but who else other then Nissan made an engine that won best engine 10 years in a row? um no one.
i'm not comparing maxima to civic i explained that civic is a rice bucket.
and i'm sorry i ended up in a forum full of ricers. shit a Camry is a Camry nothing you can to make it better as a car.
