#1494 of 8984 A Skyline engine in a Maxima....is it possible?
Mar 12, 2001 (8:42 pm)
I love my Maxima.
I think anyone who owns one understands me. I own a 1996 GXE and I recently started reading tuning magazines. A few days ago, I read about a 240SX that had swapped its engine with the Nissan Silvia. That's incredible. So, with that in mind, I was wondering if it is possible for a Nissan Skyline engine to fit into my hood because I really desire Nizmo power. Thanks.

No....the Maxima is FWD, and not enough room for an I6 in the engine bay. Want more power ?....Try the supercharger or Turbo set-up.

The Maxima I have (old and dilapidated) does have plug wires. I replaced them at 107K miles. I do realize the new ones have more of a pick-up wire than spark plug wires. Why was that change made, do you think?

Hey qx4, that rocks! Not to mention the supplier of that power...Rockford Fosgate.
On another note, I'm waiting to see the new Altima and figure out expenses. From all of the data I've gathered, the new Altima almost looks like it could be developed from the Infiniti XVL concept model.

They've used direct coil ignition since the 95's. It's more reliable...nothing to change, and you get a hotter spark.
#1499 of 8984 milage problem

I am having a problem with my gas milage as well.
I am averaging 17-19 miles per gallon. My dealer and their regonal manager are looking into this problem. Now I know that I am not alone with this problem. Please let me know if anyone knows a solution to this problem, and it is not bad calculating either.

In this forum, I'm hearing that complaint alot. What year is your Max, what model (SE etc.), 15, 16, or 17" wheels, how many miles are on it, auto or 5 spd, Have you made any chnges to the car, and are you using premium fuel ?
Anyone else with the same problem...please give me the same info...I want to check with our rep to see if there has been similar complaints....Thanks in advance.

I am currently getting 17-18 mpg mixed city/highway. I made a long trip once with the cruise control set at 75mph throughout the whole trip and I got just over 21 mpg. My Maxima is 2001 GLE with 3500 miles on it. Joe is that normal? Thanks.
