Picked up another s chassis... I'm stoked to get back on the track after 5 years! So, I'm coming out with a wide body S13 convertible. I've decided to put an SR20 into it. And it will have an S14 kouki front end. It's tubbed and soon to be slammed on some coils ;) photos to be posted soon!

i have 2 sr20s. one is a fwd sr but i could easily mount that up in a 240sx. the only differences are the intake ports/manifold and the distributor location. i would have to cut a hole in the fire wall. the RWD transmission would bold right up being its the same block. i am throwing in a basic S13 SR into it.

lol here are some photos! no wheels to flush yet. just some stocker S13 wheels. The SR is almost complete! Here is a long overdue update.
Light weight pulleys are all installed
custom camshaft bearing cap studs are installed
custom aluminum engine mounts installed that drop the engine 1"
custom water neck installed ( eliminated the pinch where the Dizzy slides over it for installation and removal)
First ever made BTP Motorsports dual core aluminum radiator installed
ISIS fan shroud setup installed
RS*R down pipe Installed
Megan turbo manifold installed
fiberglass Kouki fenders installed but still need to be trimmed and fitted better
Tubs will be installed Friday along with the SR tranny, solid transmission mount, and KA drive shaft.
wire tuck will be done this weekend

to get her running i will be using a lil baby Garrett T3 setup. The turbo im doing a full rebuild on it much larger. More info will be released upon arrival of the rebuild kit.
next week i will be ordering the kouki headlights and rebuilding the turbo i'm using. after the turbo is installed and the FMIC is finished i will be buying TOMEI goodies. My buddy and i will start on the roll cage after we do some lightening of the chassis, then the incredible body work will begin! That will be under wraps. But i'm sure you'll like it and if you don't then i don't care because building a car is honestly about what you like and not what other people like. I wish a lot more people went by that philosophy. I'm stoked to finally be back in a 240sx.

More progress, I installed the HKS twin disk clutch last Friday. Waiting on my new Fmic setup. The piping isn't what I want on the current one. Installed different cams from a bluebird sr20. I have to rotate the turbo so it will work for me. Just to get it fired up I'm using this lil T3 I have. There will be a 56mm going on after she's running, I'm rebuilding it currently. Still needs the transmission and d shaft installed. I have to source an alternator bracket for it since it didn't have one for some reason. After she's started ill be getting another set of kouki headlights, the body kit, d1 style hood, suspension, wheels, and then custom body work, not in that particular order. Visuals will be last obviously. The tubs should be installed by next Friday. More to come!

I have a kouki DMAX style hood for sale. $450 firm as a rock, let me know you are interested. It would be killer on a s13.4.

also id be super wary of running a twin plate on stock trans, twin plates blow 3rd gear on SRs. Killer clutch tho (no pun intended ;)
