B13 Sentra-l

Our feature this week comes from sunny Florida, and coincidentally, the car itself is called the Nissan Sunny in foreign markets. Here in the US we call it the Sentra, and this example happens to be a very nice example of the top-level SE-R, which means it came from the dealer with the peppy SR20DE engine, a very nice suspension, and a limited-slip differential.

Hector, the owner, purchased this 1993 SE-R in 1997, and has kept it looking good ever since. The already well-prepared car has also received a few key upgrades: a Hot Shot header and HKS exhaust keep the SR20 breathing freely, while an Eibach spring/KYB damper combo help keep the SE-R's tires pointed in the right direction. Finally, a Jim Wolf Technologies transmission has assumed the responsibility of transferring the added power to the ground.

It's rare to see a performance variant like this in such good shape, especially considering he's only the second owner. I'm pleased to have had the opportunity to learn more about it. Keep it running and keep it clean, Hector!

Made a mistake in thinking Hector was the first owner of the car. It's been fixed.
