So I am not super knowledgeable with cars but am really wanting to learn and well I'm going to be getting a roller 200sx b14 1995, and I will say I'm a big 240sx fan and have been learning alot about them recently. I'm very curious to know if it is possible to fit a s13 or s14 subframe on a 200sx with little fabrication and so I could make it rwd? If anyone has an answer please do help me, I would greatly appreciate. really It's just been a cool thought of mine either way I'm excited to get a motor for the car and build my first actual project.

Yes, it can be done. However there's major fabrication and chassis tuning to be done and a lot of money to be spent. Since you haven't purchased the 200SX yet, why not just buy a 240SX and save yourself the grief of things that can go wrong with a conversion such as you're contemplating. There are many 240SX's out there with turbos installed which would even make it a better road toy to mess with.

If you're hell bent on doing a conversion, here's a web site that can get you started:

I actually do already have the car and actually am currently short on money, which I'm not too worried about since i did plan on the car being more than likely a longer term project and i do work a lot so, thank you so much for the info tho, :D

actually I just noticed that swap kit is for a S12(200sx) I have a 1995 200sx so it's basically like a Nissan Sentra just that it normally has a fwd SR20DE

To answer your question, "no," as far as little fabrication. It would be a major project.
