Thumbs up

Seems to be the place for introductions. I've been into cars, mostly Asians for a long time now. My cousin and me run a small chassis/race shop in northern PA so about 12 hours of my awake time in spent with automobiles. Not big into forums, but I thought I'd give this one a shot.

Wink I'm real!!

Hi I'm new here been reading on these forums for a while I have a 90 Ka 5spd with 130 orig mi boneee stock. I've soldered a piece in the widow to make it work again, put lift supports on the hatch, replaced some belts, did a full tune up fuel filter, ngk iridium cap rotor wires- yes I said that all as one word I'm a five foot tall female and I love my car but kills me to modify it. I've always wanted a fast car but this car is just so perfect and original id hate to drop the sr in it! I don't weigh shit so it hauls pretty good stock but I live in Tx and would loveee to beat down these camaros and mustangs 'round here! Imports forever!

Hello my name is Damian

Just recently bought my first 240, it's an s13 hatch, lots of miles at almost 250,000 but it still runs great and is pretty clean. I would post a picture but I'm not certain on how to do that. I see the insert image button but the image isn't on the internet, it is on my computer.

Buyng my first 240SX S14- 1995

What am I to expect. I am buying a 240sx with a great interior although exterior needs a new pain and bumpers/sideskirts replaced. Transmission itself needs work and I am getting a new ka24de on the side to put in later once its all ready. I will be posting here through time to show progress and advice.

Passenger door won't open

on a 1996 240SX, could it be a lock or mechanism somewhere that obstructs me from opening the door. I turn the key in the lock yet it won't budge.

It could be, just spray some lubricant on the key and slide it in and out of the lock mechanism a few times. Then try turning it again.

'90 SR20DET 240sx s13

I just bought my first 240 in December with a blown stock turbo it was still running then i swapped it out for a t28 and now itll crank but wont turn over.
It had a shit battery so i thought that was it but it wasnt, I havent checked the starter
Someone said it could be the ignitor?
What do i do

Update: Turns out this little blue wire wasn't connected all the way on one of the connecting clips on the ignitor chip ill take a pic later

New to the crowd

Just picked up a spotless 89 coupe with 130,000 original miles. Looking for some info to tidy up the stock KA to its NA, SOHC, low power glory! Excited to learn more about the S-chassis platform.

I came from an 02 bugeye that was an absolute blast! Played with some bikes in between, now we have settled in for a classic tuner ('89 coupe)
