    The 240SX Pictures

    This is just a few pictures of a '95 Nissan 240SX that my speedshop did. They got it for a grand with the front end beat up and threw a S15 front end conversion on it. They added the wing and the body kit and the paint. IMO it looks really good. PS It's for sale!

    can you rephrase that in simpler terms? I'm not familiar with the words you used.

    Front end = cool.


    Back end = suicide. The spoiler is gay and the exhaust pipes are too.

    I dont care for the paint scheme on the side either. If they just kept it like the front all the way around than it wouldve been clutch

    :withstupid: Yeah the paint would of been tight if it was single color and the exhaust has to go. Is it still rocking the ka24de?

    The rear end isn't done. There is an aluminum "extractor box" that goes around the mufflers. It all kinda ties together once the extractor is installed, but it's being polished right now. I'll update the pics when it's done. I agree about the paint, it's pretty busy. The problem is the slash stripes, but those are there for a purpose. It's kind of a nod back to the 60s and 70s when nissan was racing. Kinda don't work with the car but that's the reason. Anyway, the rear end looks a lot better once the extractor's on.

    EDIT: Yeah it's still got the KA24. He didn't change the engine because it was gonna be a "for sale" car.

    pay the 2g for a sr20det swap and you can get alot more out of that car
    or even better since its a shop car do a rb26dett and make a real nice ride then.
    Rare as hell and will sell for a pretty penny

    What do you guys think would be a fair asking price - As is, SR20DET and RB26DETT? He's asking 13k for it right now.

    way too much...that car is worth no more than 6 or 7 depending on the milage. Its a 240 with a conversion paint job and some extra shit...none of it is that special

    Someone was seling a JDM S15 for $17K in California. Just a comparison. But then again ... SOMG and registration. I say keep the stock motor if your gonna put it up for sale. Makes it easier for you guys.

    ok, to hlep you out some and hopefully in words that you understand...


    I think the paint sucks, the spoiler is useless, so is the frontend.


    If your looking for a 240, that chassis is definetly nice, I love the interior in factory condition, the K series isn't as bad as everyone thinks it is. Plenty of K-turboed guys running good times and with more tq figures than the SR swapped fellows.


    Now do you understand?

    hey look, someone else that doesn't think the SR is the END ALL nissan swap. KA's are way under estimated. good luck sellin it

    i didnt say the KA is worthless or the SR is the end all swap. It was just suggestion to be able to get more out of what you put into it. Like I said I would go with the RB be exotic and it will pay

    KA-T will throw out a great amount of HP, especially torque. that bottom end is hardcore.

    id rather KA-T over an sr20det, but the KA is an electrical nightmare.

    Understood perfectly, JDMilan. Just wasn't familiar with your terminology there. :)

    I agree about the KA24. When my civic's done I plan on selling it and using the proceeds to buying an '89-'94 (180SX body style) hatchback and making a boost monster KA24. Anyway, the car - he's already had a lot of people express interest, even at 13 grand. One older guy was even considering it for his daughter's first car!

    If your trying to buy a S14 chassis, there are plenty of beautiful ones on ebay with decent mileage, great paint for way way less than 13k. I just think for that what the guy wants for that s14 it's overpriced.

    wtf, y0! It worked last night! Damned free hosting. One of these days I should get around to paying for some... Hopefully it will work later, but if you have tastes anything like the above fellows, you aren't missing much apparently. ;)

    EDIT: Just checked again, works now.
