Now, I know I'm probably a crazy arse for even attempting to race such a car. But I was very surprised at how little the 02 SE Altima has on the G2 Legend. I'm in a 92, all stock, w/ no mods :( (except lighting, need $$$:rolleyes: ). I always love a good challenge, and apparently this guy was up to giving me one. This shows that the Legend was obviously ahead of it's time in terms of engine manufacturing, and I give Honda serious props for designing such a beautiful engine. 02 cars have WAY more technology than 90's, and I know that the engine he was running was 240hp w/ a 3.5L V6 DOHC. So technically, I was beat from the beginning. :(

Now, what scared me when I finished racing this guy is this: I kept up with him, but I never hit W.O.T..... that's freaky. This car is scary fast. So all I need now is my intake, a Remus, and an oil change.

Any other engine mods that I missed? I could use an extra 60 hp, so if anyone knows of anything... post it. :D

An Altima is fast? :confused: I guess......Hmmmmm.....I never knew Altimas were 3.5 L. That's weird I raced a Maxima and a 525i (BMW-which I believe is also a V6) and I beat them both using my 92LS automatic tranny as a manual tranny (shifting gears). :confused: Latin.........

The new altima runs a 14.3 it would kill you. The 2002 max should have romped you to esp if it is the 6-speed those run 14.2s my friend has one its fast fast.If it was the 3.5 Liter he has 255hp.he also had a 2001 max with intake exhaust and all kinds of crap and i beat him in my 92 legend with intake.

the all new Altima has been revamped...instead of 140hp on the 2-ish liter, the TOP of the line SE model has 240hp.

The regular ones are like 2.5L with 170-ish hp

Hmmm, how could you be racing someone and nver be at wideopen throttle? Do you mean that you never had the accelerator to the floor??? I'm confused, doesn't racing mean that you try to drive as fast as you can ;).

Just curious where you got those times. Sport Compact Car magazine has the Altima running 14.9 in the quarter and 6.7 0-60,
and the Maxima running 15 in the quarter and 6.9 0-60.
