Guide to Nissan Sentra Tuning


Another booming car from Nissan still successful on the roads is the Nissan Sentra. It is actually a redefined sports version of most renowned solid car of Japan – Nissan Sunny. The interior volume is unbelievable and it gives plenty of choices to tune up this model from within.

As Pro Racing was never the objective of this model, thus one has to be very careful when installing components that are heavily tuned. We can consider all the parts that can be used for the Sentra to enhance its performance to a completely new level.

First is the exhaust system, a ‘cat back’ exhaust system will surely be suitable for the sensitive Sentra. One such popular system among many is the HKS Legamax Premium. It contains four titanium tips which has a finishing of stainless steel. The RPM slowly increases the racing sound. The big radius bends are helpful to exhaust gas temperature and back pressure. The diameter pipes of bigger size will be helpful in tuning the car with heavy configuration.

Moving towards the advanced electronics and the engine, we look carefully at the volumetric efficiency. The complete ECU is a lot dependant on this factor. Investing in Redline Tranny fluid is suitable for Sentra.

Stillen Header/Downpipe is another unique part for upgrade that is not heard till now. It is specially designed for Sentra models. The exhaust and intake for such cars models is actually completed by this part. The device GT-R of VAC Type is preferred to cancel original version speed limiter for circuit driving engine.

The filling hex should always be loosened before the drain bolt is loosened. A funnel of short tube that is well flexible is worth to be obtained, otherwise there it would be needed to move between pouring fluid and going under for draining it out. The speed of Sentra can be monitored on Turbo Timer or Circuit Attack Counter. HKS original system controls the signal of CAN-BUS with the aim to safely cancel speed limiter.

The device that helps to make smooth transitions in the form of short gears from 1st to 3rd gear and then to the 5th gear is the Faktion Short Shifter. Indeed it is a great modification costing 50 dollars.

The HKS advanced kit would have to be finally installed. Two up rated actuators, a Racing Centre Pipe and a racing Intercooler pipe kit are included in this kit. The boost response is greatly enhanced and the exhaust resistance is reduced by the racing centre pipe.

The latest models of Sentra are available with a hydraulic clutch built by Renault. This component will be suitable for any version of the same car and is helpful for good transition of gear.

If it is desired to modify the mature looks of this vehicle to give it a look of a wild street fighter, it will be advisable to add black carbon fiber bodies having removable hardtops as they would be suitable for the look of this car in general. For giving more raging looks, a poster of a leaping tiger painted on one of its sides will be catchy.

A Sentra that is properly tuned up will definitely challenge the chances and remove the old memories of its and quiet version.
