This folks is about as cheap as speed gets. The old saying goes “Speed is money, how fast do you want to go?” Over the years I’ve spent plenty of money and had lots of fun with the car. But, even the best chapters in life come to an end and the time has come to sell the “Classic.”

Without a doubt the stage of adding all the little components to a major modification is the part where you can really blow your project over budget. It's also one of the most frustrating aspects because every unique piece must work in conjunction and be reliable. We did our homework and researched what we thought the best parts for the value were while noting our strict requirements for this project. We'll try not to make this article a boring parts list.
Project Nissan Sentra SE-R: Fmax Manifold
In this third part of our series, we travel down to F-Max Fabrication in San Diego, CA for our turbo manifold buildup. Jhame Peters, owner and fabricator, was ready to take the SR20DE to a new level. His turbo manifolds for Toyota, Honda, Lexus and Nissan engines have proven to make high hp numbers and give incredible reliability. Still, we wanted something better than what was currently available and, at the time, we were willing to sacrifice durability to get better flow from an exhaust manifold. As it turned out, we got a lot more than we were asking for.

Project Nissan Sentra SE-R: HKS GT3037 Turbo
In our last article we covered an introduction of Project Sentra SE-R. Building a turbo kit that will make respectable power and have quick boost response is a challenge. Thankfully other SE-R owners have been down this road before. Still, being the types of people we are here at MotoIQ we're always looking for bigger and better, or in this case more power and quicker boost response. Our goal is to have the boost response commonly found in the T-25/T-28 turbos but achieve the high peak hp (400 wheel hp) possible in the Turbonetics T3/T04E turbo.
Project Nissan Sentra SE-R
Our idea of a project car is one that can go fast, have even better handling characteristics, can bring things to a stop without any drama and be competitive on the racetrack. Back in the early/mid 90's finding a car like this was simple
