hey i've got a 93 240sx with the stock 2.5 i just changed the timing chain and all , you can get a kit from advance auto for under 300.00 and do it youre self , mine really did'nt need it , but it made a little noise , and the water pump was going out on it , so what the hell , i was half way there , so i went for it , took about half a day to do it . oh by the way it got a little over 207,000 mile miles on here , it runs great the comp. is around 150 psi on all four cyl.Biscuit said:Well I have decided not to do the conversion. I just dont have the money and time. Space is no concern for me. I aint gonna pick up tons of girls...surprisingly, I dont have time for that either. I am going to be working full time this summer to pay for this car.
As for the timing guides, should I get them replaced immediately when I buy it? How hard is it to do it?
Umm the one side thing is prolly from the spider gears only spinning one tire. Or wieght in the car can cause that. The 240sx has very little wieght in the rear and will spin all day.It kinda likes to goto one side for some odd reason. Vettes do that too. So what does everybody think of the rattling sound?
Sorry, complete typo. It's a 1977 BMW. Lol....Kelso said:well thats an unfair comparison.... a 97 bmw? if that things not running like a champ the owner should be smacked for fucking up his car....i want a bmw someday when i can have multiple cars ( oldschool m3)
What are you talking about, the 240SX has very little weight in the rear? It's almost 50/50 weight balanced.Chris90FB240sx said:Umm the one side thing is prolly from the spider gears only spinning one tire. Or wieght in the car can cause that.

Also the rattle... is it from the engine bay or under the car? It could be as simple as a heat shield.
It lasts a long time, its very east to convert to a stick, my friend is doing the same thing on a s14, it has 155hp and 156 lbs. tq., um bout 2K.Biscuit said:I am thinking about buying a 92 240 and I want to know some stuff...
First question. How long does the automatic last if its well kept up and not jurked around.
How hard is it to convert it over to a stick?
How many horsepower does it have?
It has 128k on it and light paint fade, how much should I offer for it?
I think that is all for now. I will think of some more later. Thanks for yalls help!
