14.2 isn't 12's or 10's tho, is it? lol....

You are gonna need a lot of Nos and or PSI in a turbo to get close to those numbers. I agree, everyone has 12 second cars and if you ask on a certain day it would be 10's. Lets get real here! It seems all these tuner guys have something to prove. The really fast guys don't feel the need to show off and brag about how fast their car isn't!
The stock V6 Altima won't but the guys here said it could do it with a little modification. 2007 Nissan Altima - Full-size Sedan First Test & Review Specs - Motor Trend
According to this 2007 model test with a CVT transmission connected to the V6, it did 0-60 in 6.6 seconds and quarter mile in 15 seconds. I'm trying to find the numbers for the Altima with the 6 speed manual transmission which would be faster.

Mods can make everything faster. Stock Vs Stock is another story!

Import racing was cool back in the late 90's, at least for me here in Arkansas because not ever-body had seen them yet. I think it stopped being cool about the time that movie came out, and then people starting calling them "tuner's", always makes me think of fish.

With the 6 speed manual, the Altima does 0-60 in 5.8 seconds and the quarter mile in 14.3 seconds at 101.7 mph. Isn't it very likely that with fatter tires and a bit of tuner modification it could reach 12 seconds?

Sure you can tunafish, you just have to dry them out like jerky then stretch them out real thin.

Considering I'm talking from real world experience I'd say my comment is pretty on point.

I wonder if the cars he saw were automatic transmissions? A 6 speed manual driven by an experienced driver can get 14s.
Then again, it also depends on if it's the 4 or 6 cylinder and what year is the car.

Kind of funny we're arguing about this when you should realize that today we have a midsize family sedan with a V6 engine capable of doing speeds that not too long ago were in the super car range. Back in the mid 70s to early 90s we would have loved to buy a brand new car with this kind of speed and yet today it comes in a family sedan.
