New kid from philly

Post by collegekid »

Hey everyone, I got my 1996 zenki base autotragic a lil over a month ago. Body is pretty clean but its got 173k and its about to die soon and tranny is going soon as well. I'm 19, I go to Temple University, and I'm not a racer fanboy. This is my first car and I'm looking to get a replacement Ka24de and get it 5 speed for now. I'm not going into any racing or drifting or anything crazy. I am looking to go ka-t eventually and I'm also considering doing a swap so I'm in the market for a s13 or a 95zenki if its OBDI (not sure if it is or not) cuz of emissions here in philly are so strict. I got no experience with cars but I've learned a lot from reading on other forums such as 240sxforums, zilvia, and I just joined here and 240sxfamily. This is what my baby looks like

I'm right outside Philly.. I know a few people that go to Temple too.
And emissions here are a joke. You just have to know the right people.

I really miss my S14. Same exact as you described yours. I loved delivering pizza in that thing when it snowed up in Boston.

Welcome. And take the time to do some research. I bet you can't ask a question that has already been asked. And it may have been answered... lol

Just stay away from Tiny, and 8-bit; they bite.... 8)

For a second there I thought he was your brother and you gave him the car to take to Philly for school or something.

The cars look almost identical.

Wow holy crap it's been some time.
To bring you guys up to speed, that car turned into a long time project. I was researching KA-t setups because the engine was in there already, but it seemed to be a lot of custom work and knowledge which I didn't have.
That car got the infamous sr20.
It's still in my garage though, hasn't been on the road under it's own power since May of 2012 LOL.

I will be throwing it back together to just drive. Yes the Sr is staying in the car. OR I may sell it since its a late model sr20 from a Kouki S14 (NA code ecu) so that's like $10,000 in todays market apparently.


I actually ended up buying a few more cars. I bought an auto maroon 1995 that was mostly stock as a daily for my brother. Then later on I bought a parts car, but it actually ran. This one is another auto maroon 95.

Hang tight, lets see if I can get some pics.

So my track car is the one you see in this photo. My other one from the post above is shown in the background.

Plan is, to throw my green car back together. I won't be able to paint at my parents house, so I will get back in one piece to take it to the new house. Housing market sucks but I'm still trying to buy a house. I'll paint it there.

I'll take back my brothers old daily since he didn't take care of anything. He literally made 0 repairs to it and it's just been sitting on the street. That will honestly just be kept as a stock daily driver car. It runs fine minus a few minor issues, but the paint is going bad real fast.

The track car/parts car needs to get some wiring stuff sorted out. Previous owner had some alarm system installed in it and I want it gone. Cluster didn't work but it was no biggie. For the price I paid for it, albeit years ago, I don't care about the cluster lol.
Other than getting it back to being roadworthy, I'll take it to some HPDE/SCCA events until the auto trans blows. I have hoarded many manual trans over the years so I will swap it in then. This car will eventually be KA-t because I always wanted to have an sr and ka-t.


I'll check in every now and then.
