I've seen plenty of decent built SRs on eBay for anywhere from 1200-3000 depending on aftermarket parts & work done. Depending on whether you want aftermarket or stock, there's a ton of places to get kouki front end conversions as well.

Go VQ35, perfect for the 240, the engine sits way back for turbocharging at a later date and it has a 6 speed tranny. The motor has good power with simple bolt ons too. If my car didn't have an sr I would go with it. Before any of that do suspension and braking systems upgrades ... do it right.

i am a firm believer in cleaning. everything should be cleaned to the spec. dont leave raod grime all over your underbelly. no dirt under the engine bay and definately no dirt inside. your ride will be judged by the cleanliness of the parts you install and how clean your ride is overall. even the most bad ass swap combos can look like hell if they arent done cleanly. dont let your drive to get the job done over ride your ability to do it right. take your time and clean as you go and you will appreciate it alot more when people say " dam, thats a clean ride" as opposed to "dam that rb swap looked like an abortion". be proud of the work you do.
