  1. yeah, it is a 97, why? is there a problem you know about with the 97
  2. no engine codes that i know of, but i am going to take it in tomorrow and have it scanned
  3. i have a 97 pathfinder and everytime i get to a certain rpm, usually either going up a hill, or passing someone, the engine surges and seems to power out at 3300rpm. if you pump the gas a couple times it well jump up to 4500rpm, really not sure what is going on, any suggestions would be great
  4. if you don't want to do it yourself, go to any exhaust shop, i went with brushed alluminum pipe, pre bent, and a aftermarket filter
  5. so i got my mile marker hubs, and installed, one side works fine, the other turns about 1/4 turn and then binds up, WTF, so i take it apart, a piece of the spring where that pin quide is, is scraching the housing, and binding.
  6. i am sure this is covered somewhere else, under a different thread
  7. no, i did a full intake, including a heat shield. i removed the old air tube and replace it with a 3 inch tube. but i am very surprised that it had that much improvement
  8. i am not sure what brand the muffler shop was going to use to replace it, i know they suggested the resonator come off too. They are going to replace all the way to the exhaust manifolds, so i should be getting good clearance. I did a mileage check with the new intake and with a mix of hiway/city driving, i am getting 19-20mpg, and great throttle response too. Can't wait to see what happens with new hubs and exhaust.
  9. talked it over with the local muffler shop, we are going with a 2 1/2 inch clearance, and taking the resonator out. as far as the extra power, it could definetly be better throttle response. I am looking forward to all the mods, and seeing what the end project is going to be like.
  10. well that is good news, because next week it is getting a new, larger exhaust too, but as it stands now, i am thoroughly empressed with the power increase i have seen. New exhaust next week, and sometime in May Mile Marker hubs, and suspension lift. I am having a blast with this pathfinder
  11. lol, i wish mine only cost $25 bucks, I wanted to remove all the plastic, from what i can figure, at its smallest it is only 2inches wide, so now i have it all 3 inch aluminum. I was going to have to order the MAF adapter online, so i built my own, which actually worked out quite well, because i made it large enough that i custom make a air box/shield to deflect some of the warm air coming from the the engine compartment. I well say one thing, after getting it done, i noticed a HUGE difference in power.
  12. so i am going to do my own custom intake this weekend, i have a question to throw out there before i start. there seems to be a small vacuum line on the old air box. Does this need to go back before the MAF sensor? or can i put it between the MAF and the intake?
  13. i looked at those hubs, i have a question, are they all metal?, they kind of look plastic from the pictures, and i would definetly like to go metal.
  14. got my new pathfinder today, very happy with it. The first order of buisness, hubs.
