1995 Nissan 240SX
Up for sale is my 1995 Nissan 240SX. It is reading around 197k miles on the clock because the person that owned it before me used it to commute from Tampa to Orlando for work but as you can tell from the pictures it has been very well taken care of. I have owned it for the better part of a decade and started modifying it about a year and a half ago. I started with a S14 Notchtop SR20DET from JDM Orlando in Orlando Florida. I purposely waited until I could find the nicest motor possible and it was guaranteed to have around 50k miles or less. With that being said the motor should have around 60k miles on it or less at this time. I originally kept the SR transmission in the car but was having trouble with it grinding when I went into fifth and it eventually was sticking in reverse. So after putting in a stage 4 6 puck clutch I swapped the bell housing and put a KA transmission back in the car which I actually like a lot better. I also installed a J30 VLSD and with that combination it seems to have a perfect combination of acceleration and economy when you put it in 5th gear. (which seems to be the only difference between the two transmissions). I still have the factory differential and the SR transmission with the KA bell housing and I will include both of those with the sale of the car if the buyer would like to have them. I ordered a front mount inter-cooler kit from CXRacing with a Greddy type S style BOV and it also has a dual core aluminum radiator. All of the coolant hoses have been swapped with performance silicone hoses and most of the electrical and vac hoses have been covered with heat/flame retardant sleeves. A catch can was also installed as well as a aluminum coolant overflow cylinder tank located next to the radiator. The turbo was completely rebuilt and customized by Turbo Bay. I doubt very much there are many turbos out there like this. I wanted to upgrade the turbo but didn't necessarily want to do a top mount turbo that screams "look at me", I would rather have something that looked stock but had "look at me" performance. So we took the dual ball bearing T28 and customized it to fit a 73.5mm/53.9mm 11 blade GTX Billet compressor wheel and a 9 blade 53mm turbine wheel with a ceramic coated turbine housing but still sits in the stock location. It is set around 17 or 18 PSI right now but is very capable of producing a lot more. Out of the turbo is a stainless steel Elbow that separates the waste gate and exhaust and dumps them both into the aftermarket 3" stainless steel exhaust. The car sounds fantastic and has a nice deep tone. Not obnoxious at all. It has 18" Drag Concept wheels and just a few months ago I put on a new set of Bridgestone Drive Guard Run Flat tires. They are staggered with a 255/40/18 in the rear and a 225/45/18 up front. the front brakes have been upgraded to Q45 calipers and the rotors were switched out to a 4 lug rotor that was the same diameter as the Q45, which turned out better because this put brand new pads and rotors up front with the twin piston calipers. I converted the car to E85 so it would have more and safer power. It has an RS-Enthalpy ECU and on a conservative tune made 349/379 on a mustang style Dyno. The two front seats were just recovered and it has a 7" touchscreen DVD player with a back-up camera that I have wired to come on with the parking light switch. Im sure there are a lot of things Im forgetting but that gets the basics out of the way. Its a very fun car to drive and definitely reliable enough to be a daily if somebody wanted to which was exactly my goal. A 240 that was a daily driver but could hold its own on the racetrack. Thanks for looking.
