So for about a month now I've passed by a house that's had this rusted 240sx on the lawn just sitting there fading away. Until one day, I was quite shocked that the kid finally put the damn thing up for sale.





Took a quick look around the exterior, nothing but rust and a badly damaged rear bumper. Nothing a little elbow grease can't handle, eh? So I chatted with the guy to let me have this thing, he wouldn't go under $3500, but I was just so anxious to start working on this thing I had to do it, so I paid the price.

When I got my father to bring his flatbed and tow this thing back to my garage, I now see why he had a hard time lowering the price..

(Part 2.)
So after hours worth of sanding down the old and faded, not to mention rusted paint off, and then filling in a few spots here and there, we gave the 240 a new coat of a bright red/orange while the new suspension me and my pop ordered traveled around the world to get here.

As the suspension setup comes in finally after a long wait, we set to work on installing the new trailing arms, front struts, springs, shocks, brakes and their pads along with the new rims, some Volks B)



After I feel good about how it's come so far, I order a pretty basic bodykit to go along with it, nothing too crazy but definitely show material. (Don't mind the rim change. Same Volks, different mod)




Now there is one question remaining..



What do I do with this baby? Keep it N/A or slap on a turbo? I'll leave that up to you guys :D

so my buddy dropped by about a month ago with a stock srt4 and says he was a drag car. i told him u better have some money to build this because its going to cost u a pretty penny. he says that money doesnt matter he wants a sbc stuffed in this srt4 so heres the car when we got it in the shop


now we start by gutting the car because were going to throw a tube chassis in it
wich we used a jig to make the chassis and finished fabricating a custom rwd suspension in it



now we take our sbc that we just took off the shelf ( 327 twin turbo port matched heads and intake and port matched exhuast full roller motor with two stages of nitrous running methanol injection dynoed at 598hp to the tires with out nos)
and we made it fit in the front and mocked up the wheels
also the interior safety and electronics got wires up and installed


now the fun part we molded up some body panels and made carbon fiber parts and mocked up the body and got it ready for paint

now after tuning and adjusting some suspension we go it to go straight and ran a 10.4 with few tuning done and with it fully tuned and runningperfect she ran a 9.4 every pass




sorry its so long first one ive made lol

MSanti98, if you plan on drifting it, definitely go for the turbo.
It will help you get around the corners with just the right amount of wheelspin. :)
If you plan on daily driving it, go for the nonturbo.
Either way, if it was my car, I would still go with the turbo. ;) :))

Nice neon, 84accord!
That V8 looks nice in that car!
