Did you have to thread the rod to get that shift knob on?
No, I used a universal model that installs with set screws. I thought about using a Nismo boot adapter for an E12, but figured it wouldn't be worth the $150 plus a new knob when I'll be completely removing the shift linkage with the HR16DE later on (once the SR is ready).

I washed it yesterday, waxed it today and hopefully in the next day or two I can get it vacuumed out and wipe down the interior panels. This wasn't one of the 30 minute spray bottle wax jobs but a good one in preparation for winter weather. I don't mind doing the spray bottle wax sometimes but, I like to get a good coat of Mother's wax on it once or twice a year usually in the spring and fall.

CONFIRMED!!!!!
Most Gen 1 Versas ARE pre-wired for heated mirrors.

To make sure your car is pre-wired, pull door panel and vapor barrier. Look for BROWN connector.
This pic is from a boneyard 2009 that is identical down to color to mine.....prior to my upgrades. View attachment 17622

successfully installed the first heated mirror today!!! (passenger's side)

It was the glass only, not the whole mirror assembly, so I had to run two wires from the pigtails to pin 1 and 5 to the brown connector.

Tested working! Now I'm in the hunt for the driver's side.

Just got my 2014 versa sedan back from the dealership for warranty work. Went in for a drive belt, and to inspect my struts as they were bad. Tech confirmed struts are bad and replaced belt. Inspection of vehicle found that the rear main seal was bad. This may explain why my oil levels were low?. Got 2 new front struts and rear main seal replaced under warranty purchased from carmax. Price with no warranty for struts and seal would have been 2,200$. I only paid 50$ deductable. New serpentine belt cost me 180$.

Have had over 4000$ of warranty work done to my versa. To list them off..
  1. Valve body for CVT - had very sluggish initial acceleration
  2. 2 control arms
  3. Driver&Passenger side axle and CV boot
  4. 2 Struts
  5. Rear main seal
My car smells like gas when its idling or driving. Can only smell on the exterior of the vehicle. Purchased car from carmax @ 23k miles. Currently @ 76k miles.

I found the driver's heated mirror from a seller in Canada, shipped it here and installed today upon arrival. This was the whole assembly so I had to remove the door panel and swap the old mirror with the new one. Of course this was plug and play and it's working great!

Now I do have both heated mirrors. It was very easy to accomplish....just plug in the 10V fuse and the relay to start with. Then swap the mirrors, 30 minutes job at most.

First oil change in my 20' S. I used 0w20 Mobil 1 fully synthetic w/Mobil 1 oil filter. Resulted in quieter idle and a more refined deeper sound when accelerating throughout the power band. With the stock oil that came from the factory the engine sounded like it was straining to make it through the power band.

Started on stripping the remaining interior carpet, removed the dashboard, gauges and instrument panel, and started on removing the crossbar for paint (cheap metal rusts). Have been pretty busy on prepping the car for next year and have a lot of parts coming for 2021.

I may end up making a build thread on here for my little project later on, though still undecided.

I finally converted the HPS short ram intake into a cold air intake!
18073

I've been thinking about doing this since I first started looking into the HPS intake. I was interested in this intake mainly because it follows the path the stock intake follows, and I knew that eventually I could convert it into a cold air intake with some extra piping.

This set up feels very sturdy. There is little to no wiggle room and it has hood clearance.

The sound is amazing! I was skeptical at first because I knew that cold air intakes aren't generally as loud as short rams due to placement, but I can tell you that this was not the case! Surprisingly enough, I think it's better. The induction sound when rev'ing is just as amazing as it was with the short ram. But what makes it better, is that while adding throttle, the intake actually sounds better driving down the road! It has a louder and throatier sound to it that wasn't as noticeable with the short ram. Overall I am extremely surprised and pleased with the sound.

As for performance, the temperature has dropped significantly as well. I haven't been able to test it very much since I just put it in, but I've been able to see at least a change of 20º F cooler. Is it faster? I think so, the car feels like it performs better with this new intake, but who knows, maybe its a placebo effect. Regardless, it feels amazing.
