New here, and looking for info on my college student daughter's 2007 hatch. She is somewhat underwhelmed by the stock performance (but loves the mileage), and I (being a geezer who came of age in the 60's and currently drives a tuned 08 Mustang GT) am becoming sympathetic. I need a couple of simple ideas to generate a few more horses to keep her happy.

Suggestions?

Thanks!

Welcome Pete...Regardless of what transmission your daughter has, the Cold Air Intake will definitely meet her needs. But beware it is also is what I like to call the gateway drug to the mod bug.

But welcome! Hope you enjoy the stay and learn a lot!

Thanks for the warm welcome! She has an auto trans., and it is peppier than some of the similar cars we looked at when we bought. But boyfriend is driving a modded GTi that really rocks and it is taking its toll! I'll go ahead and spring for the CAI and ask her about the axle-back.

I post up-dates as we go down this road!

The Versa is never going to be able to run with a GTi or something along those lines. It wasnt designed for that. It was made to be roomy and get good mpg.

way to be a negative nancy 2dr
Speaking the truth though.

Nissan has no intention of making the versa along the same lines as the GTi, Si, even the mazda 3 with out the speed lol. Should have gotten the B16 Spec V with 200hp and a 6 speed trans. Then you'd out run a GTi.

The versa will all the aftermarket support there is right now will NOT break into the 15's. Its just stepping out of 17's with this mods. I am not here to bash the Versa i love mine. But remember what you bought it for.. The roomy interior and the mpg... thats all this car was designed for.

damn you 2dr but in the future we can definitely beat the gti i hope
Keep your fingers crossed :hand:

without a doubt I could get my 2500 lbs versa 1.6 into 15's. I just do not want to spend that much money!
