Well for starters, this afternoon I already opened up the airbox. It gives a nice GROWL between 4000-5000rpms. It doesn't sound like our cars. It's more of a wail. It's hard to describe.

The one thing I notice in comparison to my SE-R is the abundance of low end power. My SE-R has a CAI, header, and JWT cams as you can see in my mod list, but is definately faster though overall. But you have to make the motor work to extract the power. I must take the car up pretty high (5000rpms) to feel the high end rush. In the VR6 you can just tell there is a relatively large displacement engine (2.8 liters) for the car, it hauls ass up big hills under load. The one thing I don't like though is the shifter. It feels kind of sloppy. It also needs stiffer motor mounts. The whole front of the car bumps around at redline shifts. But thats to be expected as I've been driving my car for the past 6 months with Energy Suspenion mounts.

Wish list as of now for the VR6:

CAI
Chip
Exhaust

I'm not sure what brands. I'll have to do a bit of research.

bored? no way. i love this car. i'm only the 2nd owner and it has 78k miles on it. Bone stock and i even have the original window sticker. it really pains me to sell this car. it just comes down to priorites. and being able to beat the snot out of a car (like high mileage daily commutes). the Corrado isn't designed for that purpose.. and so i'm looking for a '93 or '94 sentra se-r.

here is a link to my C gallery:

jordan: nice vdub man.. my friend has a '97 gti vr6 and it flies. now whose car is it exactly? someone in your family? it better not be yours, ya punk.


marc: i think what xymox means by "bone stock" is that there have been no modifications done to it at all. frickin' jersey people.. sheesh.

Oh technically its my gf's. But like I said it might as well be mine, cause we take her car everywhere, (dont like putting miles on mine unless I'm racing
) and I always drive her car 90 percent of the time.

Haha, I'm the same way Jordan. I usually drive my parents cars whenever I go anywhere except to school. I used to drive my girl's cougar everywhere but now she has an SE-R and she's the same way about putting miles on it as I am.

Luckily I do not put any miles on mine cause the SER does all the driving by it self. She puts miles on me what can I say she likes to drive
