Thank you guys for the well thought through responses. I am glad I am going in the right direction.

I plan on purchasing another differential and weld the one I currently have just in case it snaps. Since I do realize 1.5/2 ways are pretty expensive

Can SOHC ps lines fit DOHC? (RHD)

So I recently purchased a 1990 240sx Right Hand drive with a 1996 KA24DE swapped in. But it doesn't have power steering because one if the hard lines broke for whatever reason. I was wondering if SOHC ps hard lines would fit on the DOHC. Also would right hand drive make a difference on where the ps ...

Okay awesome thank you for your responses. I also have two other questions: 1. I heard that s14's handle better (could be a personal preference) because they have a stiffer and newer chasis. Seems reasonable. 2. I have been looking at right hand drive 240's and I would love to have them but a little...

It also depends where the manifold positions the turbo correct?

This for example:

Basically the opposite of yours. LPime001.

EDIT: Just read that is it called "clocking" the turbo. Disregard that
