Welcome to the board.
I don't have he answers to all of your questions,
but the 240sx is a great car
there is a base model, SE, and LE
1989-90had a 135 hp SOHC motor
91 on had the 155hp DOHC motor
89-93 had the choice of fastback or coupe
94 was convertible only

Hope this helps.
Please correct me if I'm wrong.

The only real PROBLEM with 240's is that they tend to eat brakes and caliper sets. A Brembo Big Brake Kit of 300ZX brake upgrade fixes this problem though.

as for reliability, my car has 130K miles on it right now, +or- about 50 miles, and is still making 205 RWHP and running 14's on motor and low 13's on Nitrous.

The SOHC motors have a problem with Leaky injectors, and all hatchbacks have issues with rust under the spoiler. The valve cover gasket likes to leak too (not a big deal). Also the DOHC engines have an issue with the IAA valve getting clogged up and causeing weird idle issues. The timing chain guides like to get loose too, and rub on the timing chain. Listen for a rattle (not ticking). Usually this is easily fixable. The manual sunroofs like to get loose too, and cause excess cabin noise (easily fixed). Check out the FAQ at 240sx.org for LOTS of common little things. There are No major issues though.

300zx brake upgrade.. mmmmm yummy. soon I hope.

89-90 had 140hp and 160ft lb of torque
91-up has 155hp and 160ftlb

also for 89-90 there was an SE and XE no LE. SE had a leather option.
from 91-93 you could get Super Hicas and LSD together. from 95+ you could get LSD w/ ABS as a package.

The KA has been proven to 350+ hp on the stock bottom end, and drivetrain to 450+

Aries - what kind of nitrous setup are you running? Give details :)

I haven't had a real problem eating through brakes and calipers.... i've had brake fade issues but those were partially resolved switching to a more open faced rim.

if you're having issues with fade you're just on the brakes too much :)
