2005-2006 Nissan Altima SE-R (L31), a hidden gem. One thing I love about cars is the fact that once in awhile the manufacturer's make a car that falls through the cracks and is such a uniquely rare car when you find one, Altima SE-R. The Altima was introduced for America only as a larger more luxurious version of the Sentra in 1992, the Altima was the replacement for the Stanza. The gen 1 & 2 Altama's used the underrated KA24 engine while a normal gen 3 used either a QR25 I4 or a VQ35 v6. The SE-R takes the normal 3.5 SE and gives it a sport treatment, outside you get sticky 225/45R18 Bridgestone Potenza S-03 tires on 18 inch wheels, blacked & smoked headlights and the SE-R badge. Handling is upgraded via larger 12.6in (320mm) brakes, stiffer springs and thicker sway bars while power is upped via an ECU & exhaust upgrade for 10hp. Inside you get drilled sport pedals, sportier gauge cluster setup and on top of of the center stack you get a fuel, volt and oil pressure. Power came from the 213ci (3.5l) DOHC VQ35DE v6 making 260hp (263ps,193kw) @ 6,000rpm & 251lbft (340nm,34.7kg-m) @ 3,600rpm mated to a Aisin AF33 5-speed automatic but a 6-speed manual is optional. Using the same engine as a 350Z makes this a good sleeper and a good depot for tuning but not for the Aisin trans, the Volvo XC90 I did had that trans and it's trash, it'll break at 330hp. And I'm the person whose aiming for 500hp, either way this is a good platform for a sleeper build.
