Look on the spare tire cover, you will see the RPO code list...

Depending on the model year you'll either have a 4T60-E or 4T65-E...

You may have one of these gear ratios..

2.84
2.85
3.05
3.06 I think these are right...

Look for the F-- codes... This will be the gear ratio..

Don't compare your 7 year old car to a new one. Sub 7 0-60 wouldnt be too hard. I'd say cam w/supporting valvetrain work, PCM, and other bolt ons would get you there easily.

How do you plan to compare to a new Maxima?

It'* got more HP stock, weights the same as 3 pieces of rice on a fork.

Has no comfort, no real features (compared to our older cars that have everything) and you can't fit anything more than 3 orders of chicken fingers into it without getting cramped.

While I agree with that....


Have you by chance seen a Maxima or Altima 3.5 set the tires a blaze..... Yeah those jokers will run.......

And they are loaded like a ****

<----- Not a Nissian Fan either, but I have to give props to them...

Ahhh F83 would be the gear ratio code for you....

You have a 3.05 gear ratio... Thats the Performance minded 3800 II NA gear ratio...

4T60-E had the 3.06

And 98-current has the 4T65-E with the 3.05 ratio..

Wow 3.05-3.06 what a huge diffrence

Not exactly... I think most of the later Bonnies had the 3.06 or 98and later with the 3.05 ratio....

I think through 93 there were a handfull with the 2.84 ratio( fuel economy minded I think )

I have a 2.84 in my 91... Sure are some tall gears...
