1998 Nissan Sentra Reviews

171.000.00 miles

I purchased this car new back in 1999. it comes with a stock twin cam 1.6Liter engine which was fuel injected. just follow maintenance schedule and some minor repairs due to age. over-all experience is reliable and great car.

now my engine is 185,962 kms. I replaced it with a SR20DE engine from a nissan 200sx because the engine needs some fixing. I wanted more power just to have fun with it. but the old engine is still reliable.

I bolted on a SR20DE engine on my sentra, get some turbo kits from hobby shop,pipings, a huge turbine and a big front mount intercooler. the set up is just basic, having the engine ported and polished, grabbed a reliable compatible ECU, installed big intakes, big headers and exhaust. after that the car was a monster. I guarantee you.

blast off.... great car. a car for JDM enthusiasts. but taken for granted always. its instant 220-230hp. 14.8 1/4 mile time. with high traction tires in dry well paved road and 20 degrees C temperature. not bad.

planning to get a new Neo VVL head to push the HP a bit... this is a tip for nissan lovers
