hi there i'm Boone from austin tx.

ABOUT ME
---i had a 95 240sx when i was 16 untill i forgot about that one stop sign...
---now im 25
---i am a machinist and tig welder, machining experience from non auto stuff, and welding exp from bicycles. i can tig titanium!
---i have rebuilt a toyota 22r .020 over, with big cam, oversized stainless valves, port and polish by me, and big carb. got 10,000 miles on it so far and running great. its sitting in my daily driven 1981 2wd toyota pickup
---i have a yz250
---i really want a solid, non street legal drift car, that runs 11s for fun. i love drifting, and i think rallycross is BORING. sorry to hate.

i recently got a ka24de block and head that was all rusty and had a melted piston. i managed to get it apart, and my auto machinist says it will clean up with .040 pistons. the head should be okay with a valvejob and .020 off of it. im saving for forged rods and pistons. 9.5 to 1 i guess...

im having my first baby due march and make $18 and hour so im on an extreme budget (but daddy needs another toy). i am reading all the megasquirt stuff, i decided megasquirt 2 it is. i plan on building the motor NA on megasquirt first, then add turbo as my wallet allows. overall goals are 450/450 to the wheels. i hope that gets me 11s. e85 and meth injection are things i dont really want to use...

i will make knuckles and all my suspension stuff like control arms and multi link stuff. hopefully my machining/bicycle building exp will pay off.

i will look for a s13 hatch or s14 shell when my motor is built.

thank you everyone, this site has already been THE BIGGEST HELP EVER. i could NEVER do something like this otherwise.

tell me if any thing i just said sounds stupid or crazy

I'm 63 years young. I've had to wait 40+ years to get my second project car. I was introduced to drifting by my daughter. A year and a half ago I bought a 93 240 coupe shell. No engine or trans and no front bumper. It did have a louvered fiberglass hood, a J30 vlsd, and some old Kei Office coilovers.
Image
I cleaned up the engine bay.
Image
Got a CX Racing radiator.
Image
Now it has a built NA KA24DE. I replaced the coilovers with some BC's and changed most of the suspension to Megan adjustable arms.
Image
A friend hooked me up with Smoking Gun Custom Powder Coating and they are doing wheels and other details for me.
Image
Image
The stock sharknose has an East Bear lip. I put a Rocket Bunny spoiler on the trunk lid. I know that many in the 240 community hate the headlights I bought. I wanted to try something different and I'll decide whether to keep them after all the new body parts are painted to match the rest of the car.

Forgot to say I will be adding a turbo once finances permit.

This is cool!
Welcome aboard!
If you like the headlights, keep them; it's your car to do as you see fit.

Hey my name is Jacob, I'm from Smiths Falls Ontario. I have a 93 coupe with a KA-T. This is my 3rd motor, bored this one out .40 tuned by myself with a AEM FIC6. Just got ahold of 750cc injectors so I'm cranking up the boost this year!

Hello everyone. I'm not actually new. I made my account here like 5 years ago I think. I'm surprised I remembered the password. I've been here reading and researching but haven't really posted much. Anyways, my ka-t is almost done, but I most probably will sell it soon. This is by far the best site for the ka-t community and one of the most mature forums.

Hello to all,

I own a '91 S13 coupe driven on the daily around the STL area. Primer "black" with 50mm overs on the rear, awaiting the new ones from Origin thanks to a co-worker who can't drive, and a Kouki front end waiting on a hood sitting in the shop. I will be partaking in the DE-R faction of this forum and trying to pry knowledge from every corner of it. I have had the idea nipping me in the brain for quite some time and after countless hours of search and research purchases have been made and it has crossed the precipice so I figured it was time to start a build thread(all be it a slow one). Keep an eye out for it, it will be an water to air intercooled remote mounted Eaton M90 fed DE. Looking forward to being part of a place I have already visited so much.
LONG LIVE THE THIRD PEDAL!!!

Hey all.
I always hit up the intro section to see if I can linkup or make friends
with people still in the scene. Damn...last post was April of this year.
This community seems a bit more technically oriented than the...other 240sx sites... x]

Got my s13 and going to go with a ka24et build. Never had a project car, just a daily that I couldn't have break down on me.
So this will be a fresh change of pace. Been doing a lot of research on the KA, and this is the best forum out there when it comes to that!
Following this: http://www.ka-t.org/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=5597
But I'm afraid of legality in CA. Live in SF. They like their air here, just wish it didn't conflict with my interests.
Shout out to this community for posting, s/o to the mods!

Good day to you all here on the KA-T forums. Though not new to automotive I am new to the realm of building Nissan/Datsun cars and engines.

I am 46yo and still play with cars. My previous projects have been a plenty usually dealing with V8's with a bowtie on them :) My last project of my own was in 2002 when I built a Suzuki Swift GT for Rally racing having turbo'd the little 1.3L 4 banger for the Group 5 class.

My latest plunge into a build/project is a KA-T powered 240/260z. Having proverbially put the horse(power) before the car(t) I know that it's the other way around but I mean that I am building the engine before I get the chassis started. I have found that the info hear has been a great help to get this project kicked off.

J here from the PNW.
First 240, but not the first Nissan. I also have a boosted QR25 B15.

Now I'm here to get help tackling this boosted KA that was built very very cheaply (facepalm).

Hey I've looked here for information on a car I didn't even own! Lol, but I finally decided to get one now that my other car is finished. I bought an Auto 93 s13 Coupe! I am coming out an EVO 10 GSR. I'm very happy to move on!!!!

This is such a versatile chassis and I'm hoping to enjoy learning more about it and hopefully taking it to a road course in '15! Oh yeah I never ever talk on forums, but you know what!!! *uck that!!! I'm here to learn, I don't know everything and I'd rather not waste money learning!!!!!! Lol.

Currently out of SC, no car inspections!!! :) + My web etiquette is probably real bad, so figure me lol.

1st project 5 spd swap!

Hello, long time first time...

Nate from Arlington, VA. I have a 1998 S14 that I bought with a bottom mount t25 setup that never ran right for the previous owners. Its been sitting, and I've resolved to actually make it move under its own power again. Just doing my due diligence in posting here first before I ask stupid questions. Thanks for being a great resource!

Hi everyone,

Im Jonathan from Roanoke, Virginia.

In 1995 I bought a new 240sx, but I traded it in for a '95 Supra.

About 3 years ago I bought my 2nd 1995 240sx
I've spent most of my time and money trying to maintain it but the few upgrades include:
Heads port and polished
stillen cross-drilled rotors and pads
HKS cat-back
AEM intake

I am about 2 hours away from jgy customs and I just put a deposit on a GT28 Turbo there.
I will be using the :text-search: a lot

Hi everyone! I'm Antonio, 23 years old, and honestly I haven't officially own any car yet. My father has a Ford Fiesta 2013, nowadays he doesn't have to go to work much so I get to drive it more frequently. Still I don't consider that one is mine so... well, I hope to get my own car, some day.
Thanks!
