Letter Of The Month
I'd like to start off by saying thanks for the trip... to detention. Thanks to you and page 124 of the January issue, I had to spend an hour sitting next to some wanksta who kept trying to spit pathetic rhymes. For some reason my history teacher didn't find Diamond very appealing, in her white bikini and whatnot. I got in trouble for inappropriate reading material (good thing you guys didn't show your man boobs, because then I really would have been screwed). But with all this aside, I want to thank you for all of your insight, rambling and an absolutely great mag you guys seem to pull off every month. I always have and always will be a loyal SS fan.

If they thought that was bad, wait until they see the next couple of issues.

I was walking home from my daily ritual at the horror show I call my job when I found a brand new Super Street lying on the sidewalk, still in its plastic. Being appalled by such a blatant act of degradation to such a familiar magazine, I picked it up off the snowy ground and took it to my local library, where they were so taken by your work that they've now subscribed to your monthly journal of hot chicks and killer rides. Now I can sit at home and read my Super Street whilst knowing that I've contributed to some poor sappy souls who are too damn cheap to go out and buy a copy of the magazine for their very own. If that's not worthy of a reward, I don't know what is. Should I be considered a hero?

For enlightening other bright, young minds? Sure. You can call yourself whatever you'd like.

Thanks, We Like You, Too
Saw the latest issue at LAX. Gear guide looks nice. Very high end. Liked the outtakes section, too. Tell "Sweet Cheeks" DeVera to expect some prison mail.

Alright, We Suck (We Get It)
I was reading the last issue of Super Street and noticed a question submitted by a reader. I can't remember the section, but the question pertained to a subscriber wanting to swap a VQ35DE into his Nissan Sentra SE-R Spec V. I actually laughed out loud at Borders when I read that you used a reference to freshalloy.com. I'm sure if you had known that the guy that actually does these swaps (Travis is a member of MySpecV.com and regularly signs on and posts updates on all of his projects) you would have posted that site. I just wanted to let you know that anyone wanting to know any type of information about swapping the VQ35 into the Spec V can be found on MySpecV.com without a doubt. If you could, I would like you to update this info in your next issue as MySpecV.com is the best resource on the Web concerning the QR25DE engine.

I am emailing you in reference to the information that you have given to a reader in your tech question section in the March issue on page 100. I noticed that you gave credit to JWT and freshalloy.com in the section. I own a VQ35 swapped Sentra and it was done by Travis Burell, and all the information I found was from MySpecV.com. It's basically everything that you'll want to know about the swap, not to mention also being one of the strongest Web forums for the B15 platform. As an owner of a VQ35-powered Sentra I would love to see you guys give credit where it is due, especially to those who deserve it.

We realize that there might be an underground society of tuners who are dedicated to tuning the Spec-V Sentras-in addition to the stores and websites we've referred-so we're glad that you guys have chimed in with another great resource for people to look towards for help. Remember, we're all in this tuning community together.
