Here’s a link to the Sport Compact Car Magazine article covering the event featured in that video where this car competed (Super Street/Sport Compact Time Attack Challenge) where the car placed 2nd in class and 5th overall. The SE-R is mentioned a few places in the article:
Over $30k invested. Below is a pretty comprehensive list of all the options/accessories on it… I’m sure I’ve forgotten something. More pictures at the end… This car is fully sorted and very fast. Needs very little to be running in front and competing.

This folks is about as cheap as speed gets. The old saying goes “Speed is money, how fast do you want to go?” Over the years I’ve spent plenty of money and had lots of fun with the car. But, even the best chapters in life come to an end and the time has come to sell the “Classic.”
The car has dynoed 366hp to the wheels at 18psi of boost. We stopped at 18psi because the air flow was choking due to the small air-filter put on the car by F-Max when they built the kit. With a larger air-filter this car should be in the mid 400hp range with more boost and a retune. The turbo is over 70% efficient at 24psi of boost so there’s plenty of headroom for those brave enough to crank the boost. Power at 11.6psi (wastegate spring) is 280hp to the wheels. This car is not super laggy like other big turbo 4 cylinder cars. Boost builds just under 3k RPM and makes 3psi at 3,000 RPM. At 3200 the turbo makes 5psi and just after 4K RPM the car reaches the wastegate setting of 11.6psi. Anything past half throttle in 1st and 2nd gear will spin the tires and at times 3rd gear will break loose at full throttle.
Other than the first two years I owned the car it has never been a daily driver and has mostly sat in a garage, under a cover or both (the engine gets turned over about once a month). I am the second owner and have had the car for the last 18 years. The turbo system has about 7,000 miles on it.
The following items have been recently changed / replaced
Drivers side axle with a high quality Raxles axle to replace torn CV boot
Both front wheel bearings because the car sat in the garage so long
The lower control arm end links were also replaced
4 quarts of Redline Heavy Shockproof when the CV boot was replaced
Flushed the Koyo Radiator with 50/50 coolant/water mix and a bottle of Redline Water Wetter
4 fresh quarts of Mobile 1 Synthetic and a factory oil filter both of which I’ve always run on the car
New rubber fuel lines front and rear with new fuel filter
PIAA wiper blades
The car needs:
The brake fluid flushed
A new set of tires and an alignment. Currently the car has a set of BF Goodrich Geforce TA KD’s which are no longer made. I would suggest getting the stickiest DOT tire available. Size 205/40/17 (the Falken Azenis RT-615k comes to mind)
The AC converted to R134 and a new AC line to the compressor and seals if this is important to the new owner
As with most project cars I don’t expect half of the money invested. Friends of mine bought and sold cars like this for $10,000-15,000 years ago but I've been told those days are long gone. The turbo kit with the transmission work was approximately $10K. There’s another $10K with all the other parts (wheels, suspension, brakes, etc) added to the car in addition to the value of the car itself. Kelly Blue Book lists the value at $2,000. I’ve looked around at other forums and seen other boosted SR20’s for $3,000-$6,000. This is not a used parts bin car and as such should be at the top of the market range. This car has always been well taken care of and I never went cheap when it came to parts for the car. This is evidenced by the two SE-R Convention trophies the car has won (which will go to the new owner) and that the car is still on the original modified transmission.
I’m fully disclosing the history of the car so there are no surprises. Both the front and rear drivers side fenders have been replaced. The rear driver-side fender was replaced after I was run off the road and hit a guardrail and the front was replaced when someone hit the car while parked in a parking lot. Both times the car was fixed to factory levels with OEM parts and the car has a clean title. I used to detail cars and was ready to sell the car after these incidents but the shop that did the work did such a good job I was happy with the car all over again. Both bumpers have been stripped and re-sprayed to get rid of rock chips. There are a hand full of minor door dings down the driver and passenger side. I tried to capture these dings in the images but they didn’t show up. I loosely use the word pristine when describing a Sentra but anyone who has seen this car in person will assure it's a prime example. The transmission also has a slight weep from where the case was re-welded for strength. The weep is so minor that I’ve NEVER had a drop of transmission fluid hit the garage floor. I'll be happy to cover every inch of the car with prospective buyers.
There will be no joy-rides and I require a cash offer ready to buy for a test drive. This is a perfect car to show up to Car’s and Coffee, a track day or drive daily if you’re hard-core like that. The motor could also be used for a dune buggy or the car can be converted over for track use but I’m not interested in a part out. That decision is up to the future owner. It isn’t difficult to get 20-24mpg out of the car driving around town and 28mpg on the highway as long as your foot isn’t buried in the throttle all day. All prospective buyers can e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org or have a public discussion on the Project SE-R forum thread on MotoIQ. The MotoIQ Project Articles have a good deal of the background on the car. Unfortunately, the NPM articles have been disabled on the wayback machine on the internet archive but I can dig those up for the new owner.
