Listen man, you come here and insult our cars, and you expect us to listen. You are doing nothing more than flaming us. It is policy of this club to have NO FLAMING whatsoever. If you want to have a mature conversation with us, that'* fine. But this crap doesn't fly here.

Please lock this mods.

The injen sticker is a joke. why would you put a sticker on your car anywhere unless you were sponsored by the company? free advertising? puhlease..
You ought to know not to make that first comment, And I guess nobody got your little joke.

So.. throttle response isn't a measure of performance?

Home Depot sells a few different kinds of piping:
PVC ABS, other plastics: Heatsoak is extreme. Plastics have a low reflectivity.
EMT: It'* covered in a light oil from the factory that'* hard to remove and will quickly kill a MAF, plus it'* thinwall.
Iron: It'* iron...
Convoluted/Dryer: Way too much turbulence. Laminar flow is important.

When you put a Injen sticker an a JHT intake, That'* misrepresentation.

A part is only as good as it'* designer. A mass-produced part will normally have a team of designers.

Might be like that on your car, But there is an improvement on a 3800. The 1/4 isn't the only type of performance, Gas mileage is an important factor in any daily driver.


Locked on Sol'* request.

i would still like to see a reply to which car is better overall, a post one of your members made
Fine, eat my dust. And there are plenty of 3800s here that could seriously dust what you bring to the road.



You seem to think your Maxima is better then a Bonneville? You chose the wrong place, go troll somewhere else

DO NOT POST ON THESE FORUMS UNLESS YOU CURB YOUR BAFFLING SUPERIORITY COMPLEX ABOUT YOUR BASE EDITION MAXIMA.

Follow the rules buddy
