I'll start. I got a SN95 mustang a few months back, the thing was ugly af and ricey (big ass spoiler, the works). the hood, spoiler, skirts, and a bit more was faded and therefore an offsite white, which is why I'm doing an opposite colour (black) too fix that issue + give it an original look/style. Getting 282 to the wheel at the moment, hope to have it turbo'd this spring and a new engine. What you're WIP?
Gonna eventually put ko2 on her was gonna make her an off road beast but I'm gonna buy a truck and don't want to dump to much money into her
You're like a heavier evil twin to my cars.
daily. i absolutely hate it. getting rid of it soon.
tf's wrong with mine, i'm going with a modern look because the SN95's where ugly as hell. I dont think theres a single thing stock on my car at the moment so it wouldn't even match or look good
The intercooler bypass stops the antifreeze from going into the transmission
05-09 xterras suffred from massive transmission failure but by regular driving because of intercooler leak class action lawsuit and the end of Nissans last good suv
If you have an auto and haven't done the bypass you might as well throw the car away
Mine is a manual supercharged 4x4 with a 4 inch lift solid front Axel and a lsd
My old ride
Slower than sin and ate gas like a cheap hooker sucked dick
I miss it like crazy
No picture of my current Saturn shit box because its soulless and depressing
Wtf be worried it needs to be done asap
Not next month not when its payed off NOW
Check your tranny dip stick if its brown or red thank your creator and take it down for the bypass
If its pink slush or white sell the car fast or total it because that is one expensive transmission
I normally post under xterra bro in lpgs and vin threads I work at a Nissan dealership in Virginia and I regularly rock crawl and "drift" my 04
Working on a 2015 v6 saving up to put a supercharger in it
I could afford to buy the v6 in cash and I would rather have a supercharged v6 which makes 480 hp
No. You can super charge the 8 and rofol smash the v6 the 8 has more potential please stop shilling the six I would hate for you to be publicly humulated when you say this in public
The 4 would have been faster and lighter
You should really consider the GT. A twinscrew will cost ya 6 grand, plus thousands for install. 1000$ for full exhaust.
That 480 HP is probably more like 400 at the wheels, which you could have with the GT, or possibly surpass it with full bolt ons. Supercharger and intercooler/aftercooler is heavy as fuck btw.
And as a twin screw owner, realistically, the GT would be WAY more reliable.
Consider a low mileage gt, spend the money you save on some bolt ons.
Don't hate for the choices I make, I'm doing what I want with my hobby, I personally prefer 6 cylinders my car before this was a e46 325ci and I loved it, my mustang is a v6 and I love it.
Well Bros I just went outside and checked the transmission fluid dipstick and I think I'm good... Thanks for telling me about this she's coming up on 100k and I don't want anything to happen I'm going to go down to the dealership tomorrow or something and see how much it costs
You'd still like the coyote motor. Don't cuck your self with a 3.7 when the 5.0 is clearly superior and a better value. Why not take 100 more HP, more torque, bigger better cylinder heads, all while revving higher?
V6 for life bro I drive a sc xterra that's lifted as fuck with a nismo exaust cold air intake super charger and a fuck huge brush guard ..I even covered it in wat stickers and got a lol@ur v8 licence plate cover
>mfw this is in my province
What the fuck m8, I thought you said you took the rice off
that spoiler is absolutely disgusting, the front bumper looks like someone cut half of a BNR32's face off and (poorly) stapled it to a mustang, the headlights are the sort of rice special suited for a rig pig's LIFTED DEESUL BRUH, and it's 2 different colors (but not even in a pattern or two-tone)
Either one I personally would go to a mechanic because it would be cheaper and he will know what you want before walking threw the door.but if the dealer is closer I would go to them. I work at a dealership and I used to do intercooler bipasses all the time before I went to sales just call ahead
>4 cylinder mustang is just weird
Oh, now it makes sense, you're a moron.
is it as bad on repair bills as i've been led to believe? Literally one guy told me that you need at least $5k at all times just in case
Also just bought this last week..
The seat doesn't rise enough in the front to touch the back of my knees and it pisses me off
stfu ur not gonna die in that job and you know it.
Your engine is a great engine, but compared to the other offerings, it may have not been the most sensible choice for others. That being said, fuck em
Most likely between 200 and 600 (we never set a price) like k i said before a regular mechanic will be cheaper but they might not understand what your saying untill you explain what you want them to do and then they will charge you like an hour for labor
Just know its worth every penny becuase lol4000$ tranny
Also fuck the juke I HATE it so much evey soccer mom or cringe lord dad wants one because its soooooo unique
>tfw I sell them loaded pathfinders
There's a damn good chance they will just charge labor 120 at most plus the cost of parts .50 and Jew you for oil and coolant
Local mechanic bro will be like 100 and a beer
It's simple enough I suggest looking at it on YouTube
Oh christ this gets better and better.
>new car before any kind of housing
>new car before deploying to a foreign country where you can't drive car
Well I just looked up a video https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=KOuf6kUPTHc
And it seems simple enough to
Do.. I'll probably take it to mechanic bro he always hooks me up being he's a old family friend. But if I decide to do it by myself Should I buy more coolant or Transmission Fluid?
>I bought it
I think you mean "I was a senior in high school when my father paid cash on my behalf. I'm not actually an engineer, since I'm a combat engineer AKA I shoot doors and build poorly-constructed bridges (and also haven't finished college), and I'm currently 19 years old since the car is maximum 2 years old"
I bet you his dad made him get the v6 instead of the v8, that why he has it.
It's super easy http://www.thenewx.org/forum/15-how-tos/25955-how-bypass-radiator-transmission-cooler.html#/forumsite/21065/topics/25955?page=1
It's as easy as diconnet this and reconnect to that if you don't feel safe putting your 20000$ baby in your hands take her to a mechanic and pay an hours lapor don't worry about a new trans cooler unless you tow allot or live in the desert
Also no you shouldn't need it your oil isn't compramised
Theres nothing fucking wrong with it just don't put v8 badges on it and get the lol @ ur v8 licence plate holder and lol at the haters to poor to even get a eco boost mustang don't worry about super chargening it just add a sub woofer and an amp and mabey a new exaust if it dosent sound good
Drive it because you love it not because /o/ likes it
Also all bitches see is the word mustang and how good your damn stero is
You might need to put in a new external transmission cooler (what kills the car) behind your stock one like in my link your mechanic can do that no prob if you lived in a fair weather place I would just say don't worry about it
This is a pretty good Mexican ricer impression, man. You should be a comedian or something.
You're still not telling us something. You were in high school and had enough money to purchase that car new, plus an old BMW? It's unlikely.
Unless what you mean to say is "I spent my signing bonus on it and then left it at home to depreciate" which would make sense by army standards.
Sadly to girls his age its true
Sadly I do a performance at my local coffee place
Sadly I work at a Nissan dealership
Sadly I've forgotten to tripfag 5 times in this thread
Sadly I was serious
Always wanted a bright yellow or red one of those. I liked how the tail had a little tire-shaped pop-out. More pics?
It's not enough to be able to afford a BMW, you need to be able to afford 2. Even the cheap ones get expensive. Plus they're such a pain in the ass to work on. German engineering ist sehr gut, ya.
I hope that BR-Z is manual. Auto makes me sad.
Damn right you should but just the bipass tomorrow if you can't afford it yet then do the cooler with taxes
Promise me that please that trans fluid is pretty and I expect to see you shit post your xterra next year
The trans fluid is pretty as of tonight bro... And I will by pass it tomorrow. Hell I'll even shit post about it tomorrow night around this time.... Im Probably going to do it myself and I will stop into auto zone and see how much the trans coolers are... I was looking at the post you linked earlier and was wondering where I mount the new trans cooler.
So basically your dad bought it for you after you worked as his shop bitch for a year or two.
It's okay to admit it, anon. Nobody will think any worse of you (since you already drive a v6 mustang). Your continual lie procession ITT pretty much discredited you as a tripfag anyway, luckily this is /o/ so nobody will remember tomorrow.
Sorry bro I don't I got a new phone and lost all of them... This is the most recent one I have.. If today when I rotated my tires
I can dump some cars that've come through the shop though
perhaps, I only know of one other dude within like 150 miles so who knows. I'm gonna be going up to the midwest for a few months so i'll def be keeping my eyes open to potential meets
not him but you're terrible at this
>go to each dealer
>look for your Xterra that you've posted multiple times ITT
>go to service department and ask who owns the red Xterra out back, "I'm looking at buying one and want advice from a mechanic owner"
>manager goes and gets you
Thanks bro I had a shit ton..
Ohhh okay it just bolts on or? And yeahh I'll stop at autozone and pick up a cooler as well they only like 50 bucks so it's not that big of a deal.
im assuming since I'm adding a trans cooler I'm going to have to top off the trans fluid aswell
Lol thanks bro but be on the look out I'll have more pictures of her tomorrow for sure.
I had a meet 2 days ago with the waynesboro va Honda club
My xterra was in front of 15 stanced civics driving threw a blizzard. Thoes crazy fucks stayed with me the whole time. There always down for a bbw
I drive a tan 04 with wat stickers
Bbq xD the only fatty there fond of is my xterra and there dorittos and mnt bros
It was pretty fun we camped out at the park near n340 in waynesbor and kept taking turns makeing sheetz runs and seeing who's car wouldn't make it
I'm sure she will... And I've been looking at the picture for how to run the Hoses to the cooler and I'm getting a little confused.. I'm sure it will make sense once its infront of me
You can't really fuck it up worst case I's you don't have a tranny cooler until you drive to a mechanic (you can litterly go untill the hottest part of summer before you even worry) best case you get it done fast enough to watch the sunset and drink a beer in the back of your hatch. It's really simple and will save you allot of heart ache
Lmao thanks bro but yeah I will definitely take care of the bypass tomorrow for sure and I'll figure out how to do the cooler once I have it in front of me.. I just don't wanna fuck up routing the hoses and shit...
Thanks man if anything I'll just shit post on here tomorrow. And nope they fucking didn't.. Ohhh also when I bought her aperntly the fucking fan clutch was out on her.. I kept wondering why the temp kept fluctuating. I took it to mechanic bro and he told me the fan clutch was out
That's not a normal problem with 2ed gens hmm. Just be sure to by pass the cooler becuase it takes all of 10 minuets :)
All my 04 needed was a tranny flush and fill and a back left speaker *knock on wood*
Well luckily she was still under the dealership warranty and I didn't have to pay shit.. Another thing was something with the oil pan leaking but again she was under warranty so I didn't pay anything out of pocket and those all happened within the first 3 months of me having her since then knock on wood she's been great to me so far.. And I treat her well.. Yeah I may drive her a little hard sometimes but she knows I love her. And trust me man that's gonna be the great thing I do tomorrow is bypass it
As of this afternoon. Drive side rear break caliper is kill
my dd/project. needs plugs, wires, oil pan gasket, valve adjustment, rad flush, and a throttle body cleaning but i just can't be fucking bothered to do all that shit lately because i've been busy and the motherfucker still runs good so whatever desu
Xterra bro I did the bypass for my 07 Nissan and also added a trans cooler
And my bad it wasn't bad at all once I had everything infront of me.. The longest part was trying to figure out where I was going to mount the new cooler.. I decided to put it behind the Factory one like the guy did on the xterra form
looks good bro i was mostly worried about the bipass and tranny coolers are pritty easy :) as long as you 100% on the bipass everything is good.
you just added another 15 years to your cars life.
did you ever think a random 20 year old xterra enthusiast on a shity image board would save you $4000???
Me toooo anon I'm guy with the red xterra.. I just rotated My tires the other day.
that's were I put it normaly I think I told you to anyway when I wasn't tripfagging I sware Nissan knew there stock coolers were garbage with all the room they left for you
litterly the only mantince you need now is the timeing chain in 2018
She's not much, but she's what I've got, so I like it.
Haha see I wasn't worried about the bypass that seemed easy ass hell. It was just runing the hoses on the cooler.. But I took her for I drive when I was done and things seems well. I'll know tomorrow if my drive way has tranny fluid all over it lol...
And no I didn't lol thanks bro you helped out a fellow 20 year and I appreciate it
my 04 is at 119000 and sadly it has a timeing belt that I'm not to sure if it has been change and the 3.3 l sc v6 is an interference endgine so it is a little scary not knowing so I'm getting my belt replaced next month (free because lol Nissan employee) you should be fine for quiet some time.
check your dip stick before you even turn her over if your seals are nice and tight I guarente your fine
not ATM but I will tomorrow if the thread hasn't 404ed its way to dark and snowy here to take a picture just imagine tall af tan xterra on nismos
if you still have the step bar and the god afull mub flaps take them off because your weels will hot them and the step bar is just something to get cought in the snow
Will do bro.. Like I said I added some tranny fluid to make up for the esters cooler. Then I let her run a little and took her for a drive and everything seemed to be all good. So we'll see in a few weeks if my xterra is kill or not
Well hopefully it doesn't lol cuz if everything went well with my cooler and shit Imma wash her up and make her all pretty and take pictures plus I wanna see your xterra.. And hahahahaha snow?? Man it rarely snows in Vegas. But I've been thinking about taking the steps off I don't use them anyways being im 6'4 they actually get in the way lol..
And I plan on keeping an eye on that shit. I'll check the dip stick in the morning to see what the cold level is
Well you better get some bro... And just checked my transmission dip stick and I'm all good No leaks in the driveway so I guess I did everything right lol..
What looks bad on it? I plan on swapping the spoiler for something not as ricey when I got the cash.
My work in progress
Finally got the head back on. Waiting on a new turbo and I finally get to put it back into service.
The bumper looks like shit. The headlights look like shit. The spoiler looks like shit, and the hood looks like shit but is acceptable if you actually need the clearance under it.
