History
I bought the car off a buddy of mine who runs a wrecker service, gave what was owed on it, $600. Was hoping to only put a HG on it tore the head off, and didnt like what I saw, cat musta started comin apart and the cylinders didnt like it much. had 2 burnt pistons. and the oil rings were all shot so, yanked it out and rebuilt it.

The car was bought for my soon to be wife, but Im going to get her another one, I like this one too much now with the motor work down, its an impressive motor.
2003 Nissan Altima (Pearl White)

Modifications

Drivetrain
2.5, .020" over, DNJ pistons w/ custom flycut, Speed Pro Plasma moly rings, reworked mildly ported .035" shaved head w/modified coolant and oil passages, roughly 10.5:1 block squared and decked to .005, ARP head studs,copper coated Fel-pro HG.

None of that was done......necessarily for performance as much as reliability and just a lil more bottom end at the time, but I liked the turn out...

The insides of the cat somehow fell out??? *-) Cams, headers, major intake porting, and throttle body swap....soon......turbo...eventually.....Yes with the 10.5 comp.
