About the only thing I might do is replace the intake, partly because its a pita to get to the OE air filter.
Of course to get to the rear three plugs, you have to completely remove the intake manifold. :(
As it is she is more than fast enough and gets 25-29mpg depending on my right foot. (Ok. About 25)
I recall test driving a late 90's Maxima with a 5 spd manual and it was a fun car and had loads of power...and that was long before their 265hp engines...that much power is addicting no doubt...

Rode through that town a few weeks ago. Really nice place. Liked it a lot.

Just curious.
I've got 1043 pics in the account I use most often and it's telling me it's 7% full. I resize most of them to 1024x768 before uploading them, unless I'm sending them from the phone. I think I've got the phone set to 2M resolution. At any rate, if current number of pics is indicative, I should be able to get close to 15,000 pics before filling my allotment.

Before I moved to NC, I had a 96 5 speed that I raced in SCCA.
Had a full cage in it, race windows, "questionable" exhaust, running ~28lbs of boost and full adjustable suspension.

With a good launch, I could easily do 0-60 in the high 4s. But it was NOT a 0- car. It was all about 30-90 or 60-130+
I loved that car, but no way in hell would I have been able to get it to pass a NC inspection. (maybe now days I could. It didn't throw a check engine code) but it was pretty friggin obvious it wasn't stock.

this one is an automatic, which means it can't handle the stupid power upgrades. :(

yep...you've been out that way before when chasing another tag I placed out there...i think it was you anyways...CRS...I've seen Howard's a couple yrs back and its always been in the back of my mind as a worthy tag...Now that i have actually tagged it and met some of the Howard's, I'm really glad to have stopped in to talk with them. That to me as much as anything else makes this an interesting game....

I remember going through there on the way to Doug Saul's Barbecue in Nashville. Didn't recall going through there before. If I grabbed CRS, I must have gone a different way.

Yep. I grabbed that one. Let me look at a map a second...




Yep, again. Went completely different ways to get there. Came from the north heading towards Nashville and from Raleigh heading to that tag.

Think I found it from the clues, etc. Haven't looked for the street view yet. Probably going to be Thursday morning at the earliest before I can head that way though.
