I didnt even get the first 240 on the road yet :p .....

But yesterday my brother told me about another 5spd that I just couldnt pass up ........so I bought it today. :)

Wasnt really sure about the coupes, but I did a lil lookin around and they can look/work just as good with the right parts and stuffs under the hood.



I'm Gonna need a second job soon cause I gotta get atleast one of the 'twins' finished to make sum Cali events this year!! :o

LoL!! i feel kinda stupid since I have one unfinshed car R'now.... I had a spare SR20det that I was keeping for parts for the hatch, but I guess its found a home now :)

Hatch is gonna be all 'show n go'
Coupe is gonna be 'strictly business' ;)

yeah, was surfin tha net...mindin my own business when this thread on a message board ran up on me and forced me to open it....Inside was the perfect project coupe @ $1600.

I couldnt pass it up.... I have an engine for it already, so I just said "SOLD"! has a bad throwout bearing, but other than that, it was a strong car....jus a lil dyrty from former boy ownership :p

I started the hatch, but have always liked the coupes as well.

I'll post pix of the Lexus later...I've been spending the bulk of my time trying to finish it. Just a few more minor things and it'll be ready to go.....I THINK its gonna be pretty hot.


This new coupe will be ready before the hatch, since its only getting a stock sr20det,dampers and a lil 'cosmetic' stuff.

I ended the 'FOR SALE' thread @ NWN

...The cars LAST home was Everett. bought it from Chris....at a 'Players Price' :D
He didnt have to sell it that cheap, but I think he just wanted it out from his house....and Im sure buildin' that FC aint helpin out the $ituation.

I'll be bringing it home soon to get started on it and try to have it done this Summer/Fall.......He's gonna be proud of his old 'S13Slider' ;)

DriftGirl

LOL!!!! Yeah, I just bought another one...second 240 in about a week or so.

I was surfin over there AGAIN and saw ANOTHER 240 for sale...A Fastback for only 5 Bills. I couldnt pass it up either because I started to like the Sleepy eyes as much as the Silvia front ends.

Soooo, today around noon I sent someone to meet the guy and pay for the car for me while I was at work :)

Found a coupe and a hatch @ a great price...just sucked that it was almost in the same week. :(

4 unfinished project cars now.....

I WILL NOT BUY ANOTHER CAR THIS ENTIRE SUMMER!!

COUPE:

and before someone sez sumthing....This is a scan of a picture he printed out for me. I didnt see the car, because its in another city. All I cared about is it having a fairly straight body to start out with. not sumthing I would normally do but I had a 'good gut feeling' about it :)

So now I called and hooked up a 'long haul tow' for it this weekend. :)

Both are white cars...I dont care for white cars, but the deals were just too hard to pass up....even this close together :(

I will be selling my kidney on Ebay now :D

LOL!!!!!

Sooo, thoughts on a Turbo KA? Ive gotten emails saying do SR20's in all of them, but thats a reality due to time and the cost involved with boosting 3 cars. :(

I was thinkin: boost one of the KA's.???? I think the coupe has already had work done on the bottom-end by the previous owner.
:confused:

I'd say that the KA-T is a good idea. Having SRs in all of them is a little boring. And the KA-T will give you much better gains for the money than an SR swap, plus it's cool. I'd suggest doing the KA-T on whatever car you plan to street drive most, as it's CA street legal.

Here's an idea, though, what about making one of the fastbacks into an early model 180SX and dropping a CA18DET? That way, you could have an SR, a KA, and a CA!

i wouldnt say "much better" gains for the money, its really about the same unless your in the habit of fabricating your own turbo systems for very little money.

But i agree multiple S13s go to multiple engines.

you make me sick! i love it! haha

congrats on too many damn cars!. ;)

ka-t one, sr20 another, ca18 another, rb26 another. yay. youre gonna be poor for the rest of your life! lol. i can barely afford having my two cars. i give you mucho respecto. even if you decided to sell some of the car's, you'll come out on top.

btw.. fastbacks > coupes hehhehe.

I currently have 'almost' 2 sr20det's (one is missing a few parts......nothing major) so its the 3rd thats left with no 'motor'.


I was thinking in those terms as well (as far is it being the daily driver) Was thinking of pulling one of the old turbos from an SR, but I think they're @ 7psi if im correct?

Oh well, I was thinking along the lines of 5-7 psi on a daily driver anywayz.

yeah, this (KA) should be pretty easy to thro together with stuff I already have or can buy fairly cheap...if all goes well
