2018 Maxima SV

so I have a 2018 Nissan Maxima SV that I am leasing, looking to upgrade the performance a little. Itís a lease so I donít want anything crazy something simple easy to take out when I have to return it. I heard about a cold air intake and a tune any specific recommendations? Or any other upgrade ideas?

Much appreciated !!

Get a good high flow air filter for the stock box. Not sure there is much more out there. You could do exhaust, but I think that'll give you more of a sound change than real performance

Zero to 60 in 5.7 seconds in a front wheel drive sedan not fast enough for you?

Agree ! Sometimes we want to do things that are actually counterproductive. We used to call this add-on stuff "Kentucky Go-Fasters" . Car ends up sounding like a mooing cow and is actually slower. The Maxima looks fast and for me "fast enough" on the road.

Probably less than 5 hp. Always good for a motor to breathe better though.

Agree. I think guys like the OP bought the Maxima for the wrong reasons - it's a sporty, powerful, comfortable 4-door sedan at a decent price -- not a sports/race car.

not to mention that he is leasing it, he's playing with fire.

Just get a K&N filter for the stock box. That's it. (Just don't try to jump the gun on another MAX).

Allegedly this intake will get you 8-ish HP. It's $367. https://www.stillen.com/performance/...an-maxima.html
Allegedly this exhaust will get you 15-ish HP. It's $1196. https://www.stillen.com/2016-2018-ni...an-maxima.html
Both of these will likely be in violation of your lease agreement. They are unlikely to notice or care, but if they do, that is not your car and therefore you could face troubles.
