I  purchased the feisty 4 door sedan known as Maxima, back in 1997, and basically its main duty was to be a work car and daily driver. It was not long after owning the Maxima that I soon realized, ” hey this car is kinda quick!” And having the 5 speed manual transmission in SE trim really made all the around the town driving very enjoyable. I’m sure I misjudged the cars speed and power by an initial seat of the pants dyno, lol, but the car was certainly quick and felt eager to boogie through the first 3 gears. For several years I kept the car stock, and it was only until I came across the Courtesy Nissan website that I decided to do my first two maxima modifications.
