UPDATE - The host suffered a "Catastrophic Hardware Failure" (*specifics not shared) on 01/13 and the "latest available" backup for the website and database were restored. At this point they have been unable to recover any later versions of the database.
We are going to give them another 72hrs to pull off a miracle and find something later than 05/21 before we fully move forward with normal forum operations. Maybe we'll luck out, but to be perfectly honest, it's not looking good.
It is still recommended that new members wait to register for the time being, as any new accounts created before our final decision on a path forward is made, may not exist once this is taken care of. This is also true for new topics, posts, status updates, profile & account changes, etc.
As always, we appreciate your patience as ask that you hold on just a little longer.

Hi 1) Id like a set of the TX10 gears. Does 4 high remains the same ratio (4 low is affected)? 2) Someone once told me that it is bad to run modified TX10 gears without changing pinion-ring gears, because all the torque is not distributed equally throughout the drivetrain. Can one safely switch from the stock 2.0:1 TX10 ratio, to the 3.9:1 ratio, while still running standard 4.375 pinion gears? Thanks ---9heart
Yes that would be better. I ordered an alt from a 92 Quest. The pick-a-part sent me one from a 96 maxima. ..thinking I'll try to make it fit rather than pay shipping back. There is a writeup here: http://nissannut.com/projects/alt_upgrade/ But yea, im still wondering about the 125 amps. Do I need to rewire any of the vehicles electrical? Should I have concern for fire hazards or burning out electric/electromechanical components that weren't designed for the increased amperage?
Hi, sorry for the major thread resurrections. I am planning to replace my 60amp factory alternator with the 125Amp Maxima. Do I need to rewire any of the vehicles electrical? Should I have concern for fire hazards or burning out electric/electromechanical components that weren't designed for the increased amperage? Thanks --- 9heart
Sorry for old bump; Im looking at getting headers for my 01/1990 2-Door WD21, 4x4, VG30E, manual transmission. Are the pace-setters and doug-thorleys only made to fit on the 1990-1995 4-door SE models? Or will they fit on my 2Door? I am confused by the fact that I have a early 1990 2-door SE, which seems to suggest I should look for 87-89 headers. But I dont have a VG30i, its instead a VG30E. Help? ----edit --- Here is what I've learned - From 1985 to 1989 Pathfinders were available with 2-door body, either the VG30i or the diesel -The four-door Pathfinder was introduced in October 1989, and in early 1990 it became only a four door. -Some US 1990 Pathfinders came with the two door body, but they are rare. (mine is one of these, apparently!) -1990 the V6 received an upgrade from VG30i to VG30e. ----2nd edit --- So I need to find headers that will meet requirements of 90-95VG30e fitment, and being a 86-89 2-door body style, and a manual 4x4...anyone can help with this? Mike at AC says " I have never ran into this situation with 2 door Pathfinder that had VG30E." ?
Excellent thread hawairish, thank you. Quick question for you. I am a bit of a "greenhorn", so pardon my ignorance here I have a H233B LSD and I'm looking at the Detroit lockers: https://www.4x4parts.com/i-18915694-complete-detroit-locker-assembly.html The website says "Can be used with open or limited slip carrier." So will the locker drop in, replacing the LSD? Or do I need to buy some other components? Would I have to bust everything up? Or could I sell the LSD to offset the cost? Thanks --- 9heart
Hello again and I am 9heart and here is my Pathy Some folks on NPORA said the 89-90 2doors have a VG30i. Well for whatever reason, my darling SE-V6 has a VG30E. Power windows/locks, sunroof, tire carrier, LSD, 75,000kms. My darling is a little bit dirty from relocating to the new home during the snowstorm last week, but its ok, I am treating her very good and will be cleaned up soon. She is forever and I have waited so long to find one like her. I am very thankful that she decided to choose me: MFG Date: January 1990: Some japanese text at the bottom, perhaps it says something about timing chain at 100,000kms? Thanks for looking --- 9heart
