Looking through the plethora of Modifications for the Maxima, we had yet to profile the most important aspect to a insure handling and ride quality and that is, the Vehicles Subframe. "The principal purpose of using a subframe is to isolate vibration and harshness from the rest of the body. For example, in an automobile with its powertrain contained in a subframe, forces generated by the engine and transmission can be damped enough that they will not disturb passengers."-Wikipedia.
The UDP (Underdrive Pulley) is an aftermarket replacement for the crankshaft pulley on the Maxima, which drives the accessory belts. The UDP replaces the stock crankshaft pulley with a smaller diameter and lighter weight unit which allows the engine to rev more easily. Unorthodox Racing has developed a pulley system which not only provides light weight but also operates in a very proper and well constructed manner.
Have you ever looked at the front end of your car and thought, "WOW, these headlights look terribly dated!". Well some have thought this and have ventured off into purchasing newer 97-99 Headlights which are constructed of lesser plastic material rather than glass of the 95-96 Model years which over time turns a nice shade of yellow. Although the 97-99 headlights do sport a rather clean look with clear outer lens they have that slight problem of turning because of the plastic lens.
Stay tuned as we test the Unorthodox Racing (Ultra S) style pulley on Project Maxima.
Ionic Dynamics has created a new spoiler for the maxima in Carbon Fiber it is basically a replica of their already existing spoiler, just in Carbon Fiber. Quality of this item is said to be superb with perfect weave patterns and a A+ clear coating technique. Overall, the spoiler is a very nice addition to those with existing CF items, and would be a great upgrade for those considering a spoiler other then the OEM version.
