Throwing this up here to see if there's any interest before I make a serious attempt to sell. I'd like to see it go to a good home if possible and people here fit that description.
The car has been parked since April 2018 but gets started every time I take my Prelude out of the garage. It lives on a battery tender.
2004 Sentra SE-R Spec V with 237,8xx kms.
-Engine is from a 2003 Altima V6 with unknown mileage. Engine has been in the car since 223k and the timing chain, guides, and tensioner were all replaced with OEM Nissan parts at the time of the swap. The car is running on a 2003 Altima ECU and the swap is not codeless....it will set EVAP codes in the summer as the '04 Sentra has a newer style of evap system than the 03 Altima. It runs without codes all winter as the evap monitors don't run when it's cold out. The solution is either a newer VQ35 ECU/engine harness or backdate the fuel tank and evap system to 01-02 Sentra stuff. I haven't bothered. Engine mounts I fabricated myself and are made from Delrin so there is some vibration.
-Transmission is the factory Sentra Spec V gearset inside a casing from a 2004-2006 Maxima, so it's a 6 speed with the factory helical LSD. Clearances were measured and new shims used to set it up correctly.
-fully functional A/C, power steering, cruise control, and all gauges work including the tach. This was my daily driver for a couple years.
-It made 234whp and 234wtq at the Speedfactor dyno.
-The car weights 2923lbs with just over 3/4 tank of fuel indicated.
-Power modifications are limited to ebay header (required to fit the chassis), a 2.5" exhaust system, a homemade 3" cold air intake, and bumping the base timing 2deg in the factory computer. The car has an aftermarket aluminum radiator with slim fans and will happily idle in traffic with the A/C cranked without issue. I put in the Altima fuel pump at the time of the swap.
-aftermarket heated seats installed by myself. Work great, will burn your butt off.
-Compustar 2 way remote start system, although I only have a 1 way remote as the 2 way died.
-Pioneer bluetooth/aux mechless head unit, and the factory Rockford Fosgate sound system with a sub. Best audio system of all my cars.
-comes with like new 205/55/16 Hankook winter tires on 2007-2012 Sentra alloy wheels as well as the factory Spec-V 17" wheels
-trailer hitch and 4 pin wiring. Tows a small trailer great!
-engine burns some oil. I always ran Mobil 1 synthetic 5w30 and kept it topped up, I forget how much but lets say 1L every 2000kms?
-ABS light is on. It wasn't on when I stopped driving the car, so I haven't looked into it. I suspect a bad wheel speed sensor.
-Paint is beat. It was an Alberta car and the front end has a lot of rock chips. I replaced the windshield and repainted the roof. The rockers were also bubbling under the side skirts and I ended up welding it all new ones in 2016. I used cheap paint and the side skirts have rubbed through that paint causing some surface rust. Need to be sanded down and re-painted, and the skirts need some rubber trim or something to keep from rubbing the paint
-Summer tires are bald. They should be 21545/17s
-baseball sized shallow dent on the passenger front fender. Someone at work is an ass.
Price: $3500 for a WSCC member as it sits. Can be safetied for more.
