Description: 2002-2006 Nissan Altima 2.5L Exhaust Manifold Racing Header Stainless Steel
Part Number: 102233
Price: $135.74 (Shipped)

Important Note:

  • These show 2.5L vs 3.5L. Josh confirmed they are for the 3.5L and he installed on his Maxima. He is local to them.
  • As you’re aware these require modification of y-pipe for perfect fitment. Please research it. This has always been known with the Altima VQ35DE headers. They are NOT plug-n-play. But for the price, they are very well worth it. These also come with a downpipe so it makes an even more awesome price.
  • A few maxima members have already ordered and confirmed this is a legit shop. They’ve received their ordered with no issues.

The hybrid bumper allows 2004-2006 Maxima’s to easily convert to an 07-08 look by just swapping bumpers. Without this bumper, you would need to swap to 2007 headlights, bumpers and hood (and of course that can get very expensive).

The bumper was developed by Max2damax and was available in limited quantities. The bumper is made of RFP (Fiberglass) and was a direct fit. There was also a lip developed for it. As of 2018, it’s definitely a rare find.

Pricing (For reference purposes only in case you find one fore sale! We DO NOT sell these):

  • 07-08 LIP = $269 shipped —- $205 for local buyers, taxes included. (8.75% CA tax)
  • 07 *Bumper for 04-06 = $275 + $150 s/h,= $425 (flat rate to the continental U.S.)
  • 07 *Bumper & Lip for 04-06 = $575 shipped,
  • *You can add a set of fog lights to you bumper for $70.

The mixture ratio feedback control system monitors the mixture ratio signal transmitted from air fuel ratio (A/F) sensor 1. This feedback signal is then sent to the Engine Control Module (ECM). The ECM controls the basic mixture ratio as close to the theoretical mixture ratio as possible. However, the basic mixture ratio is not necessarily controlled as originally designed. Both manufacturing differences (i.e., mass air flow sensor hot wire) and characteristic changes during operation (i.e., fuel injector clogging) directly affect mixture ratio.

Accordingly, the difference between the basic and theoretical mixture ratios is monitored in this system. This is then computed in terms of “injection pulse duration” to automatically compensate for the difference between the two ratios.

“Fuel trim” refers to the feedback compensation value compared against the basic injection duration. Fuel trim includes short term fuel trim and long term fuel trim.

“Short term fuel trim” is the short-term fuel compensation used to maintain the mixture ratio at its theoretical value. The signal from air fuel ratio (A/F) sensor 1 indicates whether the mixture ratio is RICH or LEAN compared to the theoretical value. The signal then triggers a reduction in fuel volume if the mixture ratio is rich, and an increase in fuel volume if it is lean.

“Long term fuel trim” is overall fuel compensation carried out long-term to compensate for continual deviation of the short term fuel trim from the central value. Such deviation will occur due to individual engine differences, wear over time and changes in the usage environment.

Instructions

  1. Start engine and warm it up to normal operating temperature.
  2. Turn ignition switch OFF.
  3. Disconnect mass air flow sensor harness connector, and restart and run engine for at least 3 seconds at idle speed.
  4. Stop engine and reconnect mass air flow sensor harness connector.
  5. Make sure Detected Trouble Code (DTC) P0102 is displayed.
  6. Erase the DTC memory. (This could be done by disconnecting the car battery for 30-45 min or with a scanner)
  7. Make sure no codes are stored in the ECM.
  8. Run engine for at least 10 minutes at idle speed.
