I'm kinda disapointed with maximas. I can respect them, but i'd never buy one. The new ones look like whales or walrus.

No Bose for me!

Looks like the Max has the edge...the Rora is to heavy, but what the hell...whats the gearing on the Maxima?

The only chance I may have its hoping my 255 ZR rated tires reduce wheel spin, I get my intake...the exhaust system helps, and use that power shift in 3rd to hold my mid gears for longer...

But that 3.5L Nissan mill must be able to wind up something nice....should be interesting indeed

I'm not to worried about NA Bonnevilles or even a stock L67

I was looking at the Maximas stats and I thinkl thats wrong. I could have sworn I got the rpms up to 7200 in 1st gear before it shifted to 2nd gear. This is an automatic shift.
