I will update this more thoroughly later on but for now I will just skim the basics.

This here is a 1990 Nissan 240SX with the KA24E engine in it weighing at 2,600Lb's. Currently got a new head gasket in the back seat along with slave cylinder and other good things that needs to be installed to get this thing running. I bought it for $500 and plan on turning it into a weekend driver, hoping by completion to see numbers around 350rWHP. Currently it doesn't have LSD so we are going to, during this project install LSD from a KA24DE rear end because whats the fun of doing one wheel break stands huh? ;)

Lots of money needs to go into this car, the owner before me seems to have not cared at all for this car; ashes everywhere in the car, in the shifter, just very bad but me and my friend hope, within the next few years to make it one hot looking car.

Currently has 119,992 miles on it which isn't bad for a 17 year old car (Made August of 89).

So onto the only 3 pictures I have of it for now.





We are going to a look similar to the following picture (Same non-flip headlights and a two-tone red/black)

That's going to be a nice project. Hope you've got deep pockets though, JDM parts have gotten super expensive lately.

Also keep an eye out for knock-offs. They're everywhere :(

Not bad. I'd fix the cancer, slap on some paint, swap in an SR and call it a day.

Well today was a good day for Day 1. We ripped the seats out, cleaned up the interior and took the dash all out. It kinda struck today that I realized these old cars don't have airbags haha. Well, updated pictures tomorrow.

how do you have a job good enough in high school where you actually have enough money to sponsor this stuff? lucky!

If I wanted money in high school I was working 60 hours a week and going to school on the side. haha

That left me time for food and sleep.
