Greetings all,
Bought one about 3 weeks ago now and I really like the car.
Hope to learn a thing or two from the experts.

well you can definitely look forward to some aftermarket parts coming out for it, but thats all i can say right now :D
I agree, with taking out 250# of weight, I would have assumed they would include everything they could do to lighten up the Note. Gas tank is 10.3 gal US, so they took out two gal or 16 pounds that way.
easy way to lose 30lb on the note is get rid of the spare...planning to do that myself this coming weekend...also later on going to get some lightweight rims to unload some rolling weight and maybe a lightweight battery...figure if i can get close to the power to weight ratio of a mazda mx-5 i'll be happy :)
Less weight with same power will make the car quicker and handle better. Of course mpg's will be up as well.

I have seen HR16DE's put down 115whp on dyno's with a couple of go fast goodies. Now that isn't alot but on a car that weighs 2,300lbs (after reduction) it has a decent power to weight ratio. I don't think you will get down into miata territory but it would still be a much more fun car then stock. Think classic Sentra SE-R stock.

Agreed...I know we won't get up to miata performance but it will be close seeing as the miata weighs around the same as the note and only makes 167hp at the crank which translates to roughly between 130 and 140whp but I believe with a little more aftermarket support for the hr16de we may be able to get there :)
