laxian55 Really, i didnt know that. I want a 240xs pretty bad, what year and color? I have a couple buddies that have done swaps, i can get you some info on it if you need. But the 76r would be real nasty in your ng.

JZW I ended up going 240sx and plan to put in a sr20det red-top. Went round and round and for the weight and pricing of parts, the sr20 seems better all around than the rb20 or 6 cylinder engines.

I got this bad boy in today. I was thinking of trying to make it fit on one of my saabs, but may just put it on the 240sx...

CooperS7777 I cant remember, its black has a few basic things, FMIC, exhaust IIRC. I cant seem to get on NASIOC right now to find it...

I want to say he was looking for 12k, R32 body style maybe.
09-26-2007 09:37 AM
laxian55 What body style?

There is a white r32 around me, the dude would sell it to me for like 18. Slightly modded and really clean.

CooperS7777 There is a true JDM Skyline on NASIOC for sale, its in Vermont. Reasonable price, not an GT-r through.

laxian55 No id buy a 95-96 240 and convert to full s15 status.
09-26-2007 09:31 AM
NahumCC Have fun with an S15. You'd have to import from Japan but it would be worth it as I would like to mess around with one of those.

that is all. some video/pictures of one will arrive in my cameras tomorrow and friday. i will post up this weekend for you.
If you do standalone it wouldnt be bad. But there are way more electronics in them that limit high HP potential without putting some serious money in the car.

DSM's are easy to tune. But i have too many friends with them already.

I also agree with cooper. Past stage 3ish you'll really have to pay very close attention to regular maintenance. Spark plugs, oil changes, etc aren't a big deal, but when you start going through axles/cv joints, clutches, motor mounts it gets old. I've been on Stage 4 with my 9k for 14,000 miles (car has just under 61k on it now) and its starting to show signs of worn cv joints, inner drivers, etc.

Oh i know, but i do have that stuff laying around my garage.

laxian55 i almost bought a red 944 turbo when i bought my car. It was real nice. Hmm that would make a great project car.

This might give you some ideas... I've been thinking pretty seriously about a 944 turbo.

09-26-2007 08:28 AM
laxian55 i have always liked conquests, but i couldnt really see me driving one.
09-26-2007 08:27 AM
laxian55 no thats an FC.

To buy a project car? Prolly a couple g's for the body. I dont plan on having it run for about a year. I'm gonna go over the whole thing if i do one.
