Thumbs up New to here- new to Nissan- new to 240's!

Hi all! First post ever here. A good friend of mine got me hooked up with my first ever Nissan and it's the car I've wanted for a long time... a `95 S14. He's doing his best to ramp me up on these cars, but I've still got a long way to go. If I say or ask anything really stupid, go easy on me cuz I'm a multi-faceted newbie.

Anyway... scroll further down the page (to my second post) to see some more attached pictures of my car. She's got just over 140k on the clock, but it rides, drives, shifts (manual) really nice.

Exclamation Exhaust

I'm new here as well. But speaking of ugly exhaust...I just had the piping redone on my 1990 240 because the original pipes were completely rotted out and had too many leaks to worry about. I've also replaced the muffler, but shortly after the new stuff being put on, I noticed black residue build up on my back bumper. I'm not too sure why it's there because I've notice other vehicles having exhaust much closer to the body/pain and no residue there. I'm thinking that I have a crappy muffler, or that something else is up. Need some advice. Thanx - Carlos.

hey again, guys! cheers for all the cool comments of approval. yes, the exhaust is hideously silly (2.25" pipe with a 3.5" outlet on the fart can), but trust me... this'll be the FIRST thing i change. my buddy who put me on to the car is lining me up with a 3" cat-back.

SR20... all ya' gotta' do to attach a pic is while you're constructing your post/reply, scroll down a bit to the "Additional Options" section and click the rectangular button labled "Manage Attachments". From there you can upload pix from your computer that'll appear with your post/reply.

one thing i just learned is that you have a max total of 30kb worth of images that you're allowed to load up here. therefore, i have shrank the size (and quality) of some images of my car so you can have a better variety to view. check `em out.

not sure yet. i really like the clean, simple lines of the car just as it is... but maybe something subtle. i'm trying to steer as far clear as possible of the F&F stuff. which i guess begs the question why i haven't ditched the fart can yet, but that'll happen VERY soon.

stay no spoiler. it looks much nicer. My car has an OEM spoiler and it just looks like they threw it on at the last minute (doesn't flow with the car's lines at all)
