sP00N's '04 Altima 3.5SE
 
Drove my new 04 Altima off of the lot today. Definitely an upgrade from my F150 lol. :P

I'll post more once I'm not drunk. I've already ordered a sony headunit and the only thing I need to do is get the tires properly balanced.

Nice, looks clean and well kept. Is it an auto?

I like the way the tint works with the color of the car, but what's with the bubble on the roof?

sP00N 10-31-2011 09:58 PM

Yeah it's an auto. The bubble is some JDM tyte aero mod that adds 10 HP. :p jk It's just some guard for the sun roof, I might remove it if it's not a pain to do so.

Got all the stuff to do my headunit swap. (Wiring harness, SWI, dash kit, antenna adapter.) :D

It reduces drag when the sunroof is open

Here's some more pics of my altima and a pic of the finished head unit install. :D

Not bad at all. I personally think the tail lights would look better with less chrome, maybe a light smoke would help. The radio looks pretty good as well - Many newer cars are going with dashboard integrated head units and they make it hard to blend in a custom setup.

I was thinking about this earlier - Does this have the VQ35DE engine similar to the Z chassis cars? I was thinking it had the QR, but I thought that maxed at 2.5L.

sP00N 11-09-2011 12:06 PM

Yep it has the VQ35DE in it :) I had the QR25DE in my Sentra and I was not pleased with it. Not to mention that 02-04 Nissans with the QR25 are known have major exhaust issues.

When I read sP00N's '04 Altima I thought it would be something like this:

Well obvously not a S2000 :P It was the first Spoon tuned car that came up on google images.

:laugher:

Very nice spoon, I looked into the vq for a swap and I can say that those are pretty great engines. They rev to 7500 in their new 3.7 form. Lots of power adders available.
