Question RB25 DET 240sx Project

So I recently decided to start a project 240sx. Ill use a good ole 89 fastback. Mostly because I like how the car looks, but also it is very light. Heres what i plan to do. Give me your honest opinions or suggestions. I am new to nissan but have done alot with VW's.

0.1989 240sx fastback with blown motor
1.rb25 det swap 5-spd (getting half cut)
2.300zx rear end (z32)
3.Front end suspension of the Rb25 DET half cut.
4.custom drive shaft

This is basically what i want to have done to get it running in factory grade condition. Then I will get hopping on the tuning end. Maybe i will leave the car stock looking with rust mmmm....unsuspecting ricers......I figure it will take around 2 to 2 1/2 years to get the thing done. Mostly for $$ reasons but there will be alot of work involved.


also, i think this is kinda funny. My friend and i have a bet. He has a 2000 zx3 (cough crap cough cough) He thinks that his completely tuned focus will whomp on my factory skyline powered 240sx. My thoughts: hell no! If i need to and can use a bit more boost.

Give me your thought PLZ!

if you want a real project start with a RB30E, put on an RB26DETT tranny and head(with turbos of course), and add a supercharger for good measure. Then end result: and AWD RB30DETT-R. This is my dream car

and dont spend the money on the z32 rear or wait until the end, your project will move faster or you could spend the money on some engine upgrades

Skyline front suspension is wishbone while silvia/240 is mcpherson strut. You are going to have major issues with fitting the skyline suspension in the 240...

THe gears in the z32 rear end are bigger than the 240 so it will accelerate better.

Also wouldnt i have to make yet another drive shaft in order to have the rear end work? I dont like doing things twice. Actually, i dont like paying to do things twice....

The rb30dett is a little out of my price range. plus i dont know anyone down under.

if all you want is final drive ratio then you only need the z32 diff, which bolts right in

I don't get this bet you have. How many gears do you get to use to smoke him? Speaking from personal experience it will only take 1 to beat him, and 2 to crush him

he had is painted blue

but other than that is doing the same thing i am with the taking a few years to get it done. only kyle is dumb. odds are he will use no LSD or a crappy one. He picks the wrong upgrades, etc. I see him using slicks or something then seeing he wont use any tranny upgrades his transmission will go boom. Then ill laugh! :dumbass:

I think you have a good thing goin for your 240. Im goin for kind of the same thing. I would like to put an rb26dett in my 89 240, but the problem (as with most people) is money. I believe someone on another forum said it would cost around 5g for just the engine. ive been looking for all of the things that i would need to get but everyone is sayin different things. i just need a list of what i need to drop an rb26dett in and ill go out and find prices. A lot of people stick with the inline-4's and go with the sr20, but im goin totally sleeper and putting the inline-6. if anyone could help with the subject i would be much appretiative(or however you spell that).

(back to the subject)

i think you have a good idea. i dont know too much about cars and engines but i love the idea you have. keep at it
