    Srsly. Damn mods be ignorin' my report posts. :mad:

    Sadly the 6 speed manual that was in the Acura RSX, Accord V6, & Civic SI had a pretty bad 2nd to 3rd grind gear issue. Outside of those models though, I haven't heard of any issues until the high, high 100,000s or 200,000 mile marks.

    Sorry, but you're the biggest ricer here. A DVD player, 17's, a carbon fiber hood, and a fuel filter are not performance parts. And if you actually had a built car, you'd know what type of racing it was good at, not "oh I can do drag racing, rally racing, road racing, ice racing".

    Oh my bad, I didn't see the "full street tune". Is that Stage 2, or 3? Did Toretto or Johnny Tran install that for you?

    It doesn't sound like you've ever worked on a car in your life, so until you can prove you actually had some real motor work done, and not a cold air intake, GTFO nigga.

    3" exhaust with headers. more air my friend comes from a wider cold air intake pipe, a plenum (provides more room for both air and gas.) bro you think your so smart but your not. the vg has a higher output of torque as well when it has to move such a heavy sedan and the dohc makes a big difference. and when comparing stock for stock the max is a fucking beast my friend. come out here to Brooklyn see what these cars can do. what your talking about is a bunch of bs cuz to this day the 4th and 5th gen max takes the si civic, with a little work they hold up to the 2k. and shit they have so much more top end power that your cars are confused by 3rd gear ours just come to life.

    but listen to each his own.

    you have been comparing a civic to your maxima this whole time. i don't see why a civic is a "rice bucket" a rice bucket is someone who spends their money on cosmetic upgrades and engine mods that do nothing to the car but they think their car is gods gift to racing. any car can be a rice bucket in my eyes.

    a camry is a camry? ya that's what most people think about maxima's. they are a reliable midsize car for older people. you can mod the camry as much as a maxima.

    So you're telling me, that I need a larger fuel pump, and larger injectors, if I install a cold air intake on my car? You do know that a plenum is a lower intake manifold, right? So how can you flow more air through that if you have a stock upper intake? And even that is just ASSUMING, all you said was "plenum", not "ported plenum" or anything like that, so you probably just think it's a performance part in itself.

    And I don't care about a 4th or 5th gen Maxima against an SI, I'm talking about your 380hp track monster. If you'd just admit you have no idea what you're talking about, I won't bother arguing anymore. But it looks like the only person here that knows something is you, so continue. Are you 16?

    maximas for old men?

    not around here.. maximas and altimas are chick cars around here, but i would still ride the shit out of one...

    as far as chargers, 300's, mustangs, and the upcoming challenger.. everyone and their little step sister has one.. to the point where you just get sick of seeing them, it really has ruined the appeal for me. especially since cops are driving the chargers too.

    We received a few complaints about this thread.

    Let me say one thing:

    We wont ban anybody for a difference in opinion. We will though if it gets disrespectful. And I wish to point that bigred wasn't the first to go on with insults (retard, etc).

    But, if bigred continues to act like an ass, be sure that we won't bother with his comments for too long.

    yes i do, ill show you a pic tomorrow as in work i cant go to photo bucket.

    or feel free to check out NYCMAXIMAS.ORG

    no im 20 and bro this is a forum im not about to type you a 5k word essay on exact mods if i say plenum you should know its ported but fine. i will take some time out of my life to right you a full and detailed write up of what mod i have and how it effects my car and why i installed it. if that is what you want then fine. the things i mentioned where to give you an idea of what i have done to the car, not everything as i would be sitting here till tomorrow telling you about the led conversion i did and everything else put in the car. the cf is for weight reduction not for looks the car is black on black with tints. so you don't even notice the hood or trunk except for the pins that hold in it place.

    I don't have a problem with bigred posting here; he's entertaining when he talks about smoking a fatty and getting drunk and street racing

    sorry if i was rude or disrespectful in any way. i will end this now.'

    bro listen you know your stuff and good. maybe if you drove a max you would understand where i'm coming from. but lets agree to disagree on this because there are people who are getting offended by car talk on this forum.

    This is basically it. I figure we will let bigred run his course. If he continues to overstep bounds we'll lay the hammer down. But, there is always the chance he could turn around and start making more worthwhile posts :p

    Ps. Out of curiosity, which city do you live in bigred?
