Default SrRuizOlivas 04 Maxima

Hi, I've been working on my maxima lately, and the love for it came back, so I guess it's time to share the work so far, I'm modding it on a budget since I have plans to get a newer car at the end of this year and my son is about to enter school, so I have to put all the extra cash for that.

A lot of it has been maintenance

Actually I also replaced the front sway bar links, not as toasted as the rear ones; and the spacer I got it for around 40 bucks, and as a benefit, I don't want to lie, there's a whistle sound when you give it a little gas, and I've been using it more lately and the computer MPGs are going up, this car it's the car I gave to my wife so she uses it daily, other than that nothing that I can tell about the spacer.

Thank you for watching.
