    I know, I know, I don't need another anything but that's not gonna stop me.

    I found a 90 240sx fastback with a ka24DE, 91 front end.

    Any input about the car?

    Please nothing on whether or not it's a good idea for me to be purchasing more toys.

    NICE. the 91 front end isn't my personal fave, but you'll like it.

    the 240 isn't just a drift car. I thought they were very comparable to my Supra. Nice interiors, the hatches with the sunroof are actually pleasant cars to tour in.

    I preferred the 240 over the 300Z because the gearing is taller in the 240. That may be different with your swap, but you can do whatever you want to make it whatever car you want it to be.

    Oh yea, it's supposedly running a little lean. Teins all around, Apexi N1, new brakes, control arms ball joint etc, walbro 255.

    It's an awesome price so....

    I was looking for one as well. A 1991 prefferably. Great for the RB swap. I like the front ends on the 91's. If you pick it up post some pics. :)

    Just make sure its not dumping oil all over the place. Those engines are known for oil leakage with high mileage. Good luck. :thumbsup:

    You're right, but I'm going to check it out now, I'll take a couple pics.

    You know me, when I have my heart set on something it's gonna happen.

    Car was a POS, way to much work, he did the swap and rather poorly power steering was looped, misc sensors disconnected, clutch chattered, brakes squealed, exhaust leaked. He resprayed the car white and it looked like total ass.

    I really should just forget about buying a new whip. This should be an eye opener.
