Question type: Car Customization

I have a Nissan d21 SE king cab that has a 5 speed
transmission and a v6 EFI compact motor and it
tops out at 55 mph and I need it to go faster but I
don't know anything about Japanese import
vehicles I need help or recommendations

Tune it up, they were good for a lot faster than 55.

with a 3.0L V6 the number should be 155 m.p.h. . check the compression pressures, oil change it, and ask your favourite mechanic how much to make it run correctly? My 1600 JDM hardbody does over the ton.
