1997 Nissan Altima – Owned by ultimatuc
In past form, Brian’s Altima scorched the 1/4 mile in a scant 12.7 seconds at 110 mph making this the quickest documented Nissan Altima around and most likely the quickest front-wheel drive, KA24DE powered car in existence until proven otherwise.
Fast forward to present: Brian has fully built his 2.4 liter powerplant to handle much more power and to quell his piston ring-land failure problems of past. The engine has also been upgraded aesthetically as a great deal of parts were polished to a high luster. The engine bay was also professionally painted gloss black while it was stripped for the engine build. He also had many of the parts powdercoated flat black to go along with the scheme he was looking for. All the fuse and relay boxes were disassembled and rewired into the fenders for a clean look. The car now is terrorizing the streets of Phoenix w/ 321 whp and 328 ft/lb tq on drag radials.
The combination makes for one hell of a ride, and breaks supercar owners’ hearts one pull at a time.
Brian says, “Look for some new dyno numbers late Nov. The car is getting larger injectors and we’re going to push the current turbo to its limits. Looking to make close to 400 whp.”
Brian would also like to thank his current sponsors at sportcompactonly.com and wotm.com.
