Owner: OBD-III
Tool Cart: 1992 Nissan Sentra E
Displacement: 1.6 L
Fuel type: gasoline
Transmission: manual
Curb weight: 2055 lbs
Coefficient of drag: 0
Frontal area: 0 sq.ft.
Instrumentation: vacuum gauge
Description: The Tool cart/little car.

This car is the epitome of economy line, production imports. Thus, my not-so-new-found Eco-modding dream machine.

-2dr Sedan
-1.6l DOHC 16v (gas)
-5sp Manual trans
-Manual steering rack
-Steel wheels
-Roll-up windows
-No trunk of fuel door release (use key)
-No tachometer, or volt-meter
-Cable controlled HVAC
-ONE side view mirror (drivers)
-Tape-deck w/ 2 speaker system (lol 2!)

This is actually my 2nd time owning this exact vehicle.

I first bought the sentra just to have a more nimble grocery getter. After a year or so I sold it to a friend.

Then 3 years later my buddy still had it sitting in his yard so I bought it back strictly to offset the fuel cost incurred by running my work truck full time. Even more specifically to commute to a job building an addition that was 96 miles away.

I LOVE IT!
I've personally owned 3 early-mid 90's Nissan's total, and can't tout their dependability enough. This car is no exception. Put gas in, change the oil once in a while, and go.
Build Thread:
Current Mods: Since reading around the site, the following Eco-mods happened with varied results... Mostly better.

-Front Bumper Valence/Spoiler/Air dam
-Flipped mud flaps around to make diffusers for tires
-Vacuum Gauge
-Tachometer
-Hyper-Inflated Tires (Rated @ 35PSI, Inflated to 40PSI)
-5w20 Dino Oil
-Platinum Spark Plugs
-93 Octane (Read the threads. Controversial subject but proof is in the MPG's. Car sees a 6mpg boost on the highway, no BS)

Planned Mods: -Full belly pan in the works (Via old plastic truck bedliner!)
-5w-20 Synthetic Oil
-Synthetic gear box Oil
-Iridium spark plugs (maybe... Not too sure the stock ignition coil can fire them efficiently)
-Lighter weight wheels w/ lower profile, higher pressure tires
-Lower car (Via shaving the stock springs a little bit)
-Either partial Kamm-back, or trunk spoiler (Via Junkyard mini-van spoiler)
