Hi, my names Stephanie. I'm not the one with the 240 my boyfriend is, but since I have a lot of time on my hands I get to do all the dirty work. We currently have a 95 white SE that the RB25 is going into. It has 17" 5zigen FN10R-C in black with a polishid lip, 17x8 in front 17x9 in the rear. Those are wrapped in Yokohama AVS ES100 235's in the front and Yokohama A032R H-compound 275's in the rear. Tien Super Drift suspension holds us to the ground, and Sparco Torino's holding us in. The car was a NC/FL car so it's super clean. It has survived it's first winter and has only put us in the ditch once. We hope to have it in Autorama this coming March.
As for me, I have a 2001 Olds Alero that I love. Don't hate, I have a dog I have to cart around in it, lol.

What sucks is kowing that the car is more important than you. What doesn't suck is knowing how hot you look riding in it!

Just me

Hey everyone i just wanted to intorduce myself and give a little background. i know my name may suck but it explains me lol.

my name is tommy

i live just south of atlanta GA

i am 26 yrs old

a little background for the past 8 years i have been into tuner cars i have been driving a green 96 honda civic cx. i used to love my car and i have put alot of time and money into it with the wheels, coilovers, Hood, interior and motor upgrades. i still like the civics to look at but i came to the realization that i needed a change. looking around my town the hondas are played out like crazy. i sould my civic after 8 years and 10,000.+ in upgrades for 2500.00 dollars because a friends wanted to buy it and i knew if i didnt sell it now i never would.

3 days later i found my new car it is a 1995 Nissan 240SX se. i had been thinking about and looking for a 240 for a few months now because i met and befriended a guy named derrek he own a new local tuning shop in marietta GA. i had decided on the s14 modle because i liked the body lines and the front end alot more then i did the s13. i have lots of plans for this car and with my bonus check being here in a couple more weeks the process of starting it will begin.

i have just found this site and i will look over it over the next few weeks and i look foward to talking to you guys more.

Tommy

christianbackus is on a distinguished road
What up my names christian im from northern maryland. I've owned a 240 for about a year now and it's gotten pretty boring. Then i decided i was gonna try and learn some more about cars and get into upgrading and performance to make my car fun again. i drive a 1995 with all cosmetic mods except for intake and exhaust. I got a new job selling cars so i gotta learn about them and a mechanic at my place is going to do the installation on my sr20det s14 swap. I dont know much about performance parts and whatnot so any help would be appreciated. Time to go learn how to use the search feature. Peace

What up, i dont have a 240 yet, im here more or less just to learn. ive been doing some research on the cars for a little while, and i figured i might as well join the forum and see what other stuff i can learn. i most likely wont post much, i just want to be able to read the forums and what not, so um, yeah, thats about it. hopefully i will be able to find a 95+ for around 4-5gs, i want something that will run long enough for me to get some money to attempt a motor swap. plus i have another project i am working on at the same time. My daily driver is a buick. but im looking for something a little more fun to drive on weekends and at the track.

I'm James from Toronto Canada

I work for JRP, so I've got quite a bit of knowledge under my belt.

I've got a 1990 black hactback, as with most Canadian 240's there was a considerable amount of rust damage, thusly I tought myself to weld, and replaced a good section of the floor, frame and trunk bed. Currently I am concentrating on suspesnsion modifications, which currently include, Cusco comp 2 coilovers, Cusco adjustable pillow ball tension rods. Tanabe strut tower bars, Nagisa fender braces, and a few of my own personal tricks.

I'me rockin' the kae with 327xxx kms on it. Runs like the day it was made ^__^

I'm in the middle of collecting the remaining peices of my s13 silvia front end conversion. Which would be the fenders.. I need fenders (lol)

please feel free to ask me anything at all.

20 posts in this section? Crazy.

Anyways, my name is Justin, I'm planning on picking up a 240 for my next project. I intend on buying the parts first, an sr20det front clip, and working on an S15 front. Once I have the parts, I'm going to be looking for a wrecked S14 to work with. This is intent on being a complete project car as I already have a 2002 Ford Focus that's modded enough to keep me sane.



Anyways, I'm hoping to use 240sxforums as a spot to learn what's possible as far as front end conversions and going into if I'm going to want to build the sr20det before I put the new engine.

Hello, everyone. Looks like I'm one of a whole bunch of n00bs here...

At any rate, I'm Nick and live in the Poconos (PA). I work in NJ as a mechanical engineer for the DoD. I'm trying to balance work, school (working on my masters), married life, and my cars...which brings me to why I'm here.

I've been through a load of cars over the past 8 years, and I'm looking to make a comeback with Nissan, specifically the 240. Currently, I have a decently modified SVT Focus. Hopefully, I'll use this site to help make up my mind for my next project, which if you were wondering is between a 240 and a gti.
