This is the oldest set of pictures I have of my first 240SX. Here all that is done is a pair of 180SX turn signals, a VLSD, painted valve cover, ngk wires, and a decent stereo, lol. Car was pretty straight, and had a lot of potential. I bought the car October 11th, 2003. This picture was taken Winter of 2004 I believe.

Image

Here is about Spring of 2005. I have since upgraded to a 3" BRM catback (had plans for turbo), eibach sportline springs, tokico struts, and spl tension rods.

Image

Image

August 6th, 2005 I picked up my first SR20DET front clip for $1500. This is the same motor I run to this day!!! It would be some time before I could save up enough money to actually put it in.

Image

Winter of 05/06 I pulled the motor out of the clip and started to clean it up and replace needed parts like the oil pump, timing set, water pump, turbo lines, gaskets, and other stuff.

Image

Here is what it looked like when it was ready to drop in the car.
Image

Spring of 2006 I pulled the perfectly running KA (Sold it for $350).
Image

Both motors side by side.
Image

Dropping in the SR for the first time!

An engine bay shot of the completed SR20DET swap! I still ran the SMIC and only 9 psi of boost. It was a lot quicker than before, but it wasn't enough!

To raise the boost, I installed a Greddy FMIC kit that I bought used. It was a V-Spec setup I got for $400 in the late spring of 2006.
Image

I also installed 26mm 300ZX brakes up front during this time.
Image

This is what the car looked like the summer of 2006, which was also when I was running in the 13s on the stock turbo.
Image

Image

Unfortunately in the fall of 2006, I hit a large dog and it did some damage to the front end of the car.

Image

Image

Image

So I ended up buying a Silvia front end from Venus-Auto in Sacramento because I couldn't find a stock front end to replace everything.

Image

Image

After this, the only thing before going to the next 240SX, was a 5 lug conversion and 300ZX TT wheels (I'll try to find pictures later).
