Whats up NICO I'm finally getting around to posting this project on here, just so everyone knows I am not doing this myself. I reserched everything bought all the parts and gave the shop everything. I did do some things but I wanted the motor done fast and right, I spent alot on this and I didn't want it sitting around or getting screwd up.
But that aside I'll kick this off and hope everyone likes it, please leave me feedback.
This is my 1993 240sx Vert
The old KA24DE (will put in classifieds later, does have a 5 speed trans)
Out with the old and in with the RBThis RB26DETT is from R32 purchased from JDMofMiamiWill be using Syko Performance Mounting kit
I did put the Tein Super Drift Coilovers on and ran into a convertible issue that some of you may already know. The re-enforcment for the vert sits right over the rear coilover dampener adjustment and will actually hit the adjuster.
The solution??? DREMEL!!!!
I also installed the Circuit Sports Coolant tank, but I had an issue with mine. IT LEAKS!! but it can be fixed or replaced, it leaks alot from the cooland level tube. It also didn't bolt right in it had to be bent to fit right. The bottom bracket I just broke off (purposely), the bracket has to be broken or taken off to fit. then I screwd on one of the bolts lightly and bent it until the other lined up.Really its easy to just wing it and bend to fit.
Next I put a triple gauge pod in place of the center vent, it is aluminum so it bends easily. Unlike the coolant tank I did not bend this. Heres what I did, because the pod is longer than the vent slot, just by a very little bit, I cut the left side and right side inner ledge so I could just lock it in on both sides. If this is confusing I can take more pics and explane more indepth just messege the post or email me.
Thats all I have for self installs but here are some pics of the other parts that are going on, I'll also post a list of parts or you can look in my profile.Kaaz 1.5 LSD is in the big brown box next to the Apexi intake kit.
