Ever had the rush of coming into a tight bend and get yourself knocked into the door panel with the body lean of your $30k vehicle? The 2004-2008 6th generation Maximas tend to be plagued with a significant amount of body roll due to the larger size, heavier weight, and higher stance. This where a larger sway bar comes into play.
When you step into your car the first thing your passengers would hopefully not notice would be a dingy and spotted OEM floor carpet. If your carpet has seen better days, and nothing but prayer can revive plush, clean look of your carpet, then Tom at StockInterior.com has the solution for you! All of their auto carpet kits are custom molded to the original floor pans for each car. The automobile carpet kit is not a universal type kit, but is specifically made for the exact make, model and year of your car.
During those HOT summers, don't you wish there was a solution to the decline in response and performance once that dreaded heat soak process has taken effect? Heat Soak occurs when heat is applied and not dissipated at an equal rate causing the material to flood with overwhelming tempature limits. That being said Aaron Kimball of NWP Engineering has thought of an easy solution to keep those intake temperatures at optimal levels.
Recently we tested CustomEnterprises 1995-99 Ypipe system, which proved to be really well constructed and designed. For our next test we are going to see how well they have kept to their attention to detail with their 2004+ Ypipe System. Although with the 2002+ Maxima's the most beneficial result would be to swap out the entire header/ypipe system CE has given the option of swapping out a somewhat significant part of that system.
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.
Basing our review on a 1995 Nissan Maxima, this application for years has been in great needed of a taillight upgrade that did not take away from the car but gave it a very classy and sensual look. Despite the "demand" for the atrocious looking Altezza taillights on the market, Custommaxima has conjured up a way of bringing back the o-so-wonderful Clear/Red Taillights which until now have been sported by only a select few who could get their hands on them.
Stay tuned as we test the Unorthodox Racing (Ultra S) style pulley on Project Maxima.
