Default New to site, Building a V8 240SX

Hey everyone Just wanna say hello. I'm new here and I just picked up a 1990 Nissan 240SX non hatchback. Its going threw a conversion to a brand new chevy 350 4 bolt main crate motor (385 horse, 400 pounds of torque). I am also going to be using a TH350 transmission with a b&m shift kit. and the rear is undicided yet I think im gonna fabricate the drive shaft to the stock rear and blow it out first then decide. Shes gonna be getting a body-kit nothing to elaborite and im gonna be using stick style springs with cushons to support the weight, but what kind of adjustable shocks are known to be decent for this car.? Also if anyone would like I am selling the entire motor (now it has a rod knock) but the head is good as well as all the FI and throttle body for whatever you offer, just come get it. And a 5 speed trans with the clutch I would liek to get 200 for this. This car has 80,000 on the ODO.

I like Tein. they make many different setups for whatever your driving needs, from street setups for comfort to hardcore racing.

I actually sold the 350 and I'm now using a 460 horsepower Chevy Small Block 400, photos coming soon. I am using brand new OEM front springs on KYB AGX adjustable gas shocks. And 1.8" drop springs on the same shocks. OBX Camber Kit, Adjustable Traction Rods, Front and rear Anti-Sway Bars, Energy Suspension Full Busing kit, and a rear upper strut connector. After I pulled the Nissan Motor and Trans I removed all the stuff that was no longer needed. ECU, and 80% of the wires. I had to remove the AC for the room, then I had to cut out the stock battery tray, because I am mounting a battery box in the rear, while I was on the roll I removed all the other mounts and tabs sucks as for the fuel filter, radiator mounts, etc. I then had to think about the cross member, the original plan was to removed the stock cross-member, but after reviewing the frame blue prints I decided to leave it in. I did chop off the raised areas where the engine mounts where and grinded them all down. After that I had to really clean everything under the hood with de greaser. This is where I am at now, this weekend I will be banging in the firewall for the distributor, and I have to modify the transmission area some, I will also have the Transdapt universal transmission mount marked and cut to size, and the transmission Chevy small block engine cross member measured and marked also. Now I am not a welder so I am having a friend weld it for me after the are welded in place I am painting the engine comp with high temperature roll/spray on black bed liner. One this is done it’s a matter of replacing the fuel lines then 240sx has an in tank fuel pump which is going to be used. Fuel injection requires more PSI them a carb so that pump will feed a fuel filter on the firewall, and then a fuel pressure regulator on the wall after that it will be hooked up to the mechanical fuel pump on the motor, then up to the carb (one the motor is in) I’m not too far away from getting the motor in. After that I will have to fine tune the suspension, get my exhaust done 2.5 inch pipe into a 2.5 inch dual inlet flowmaster 50 series, and a single 3 inch outlet. I am not to far away from getting it running and operating. Then I have to fabricate a custom gauge pop using analog autometer gauges, make my cowl hood, hang the wide 50mm fender flares, full body kit, and I have Nissan Skyline R32 taillights. After that I will be painting it thee brownish / maroon from the new BMW's

sweet swap i have a friend out here in missouri that has an ls1 swap. that q45 swap should do the job if not i know the skyline gtst with the rb25det rear diff with axles should be able to take what ever you throw at it. i run a j30 with my rb26 and i have not had any problems but also im only pushing 307rwhp and 273 rwtq but my motor is still pretty much stock until i get my new turbo upgrades lol. to let you know the apexi gt spec exhaust sounds really nice with my friends ls1 240sx and it would sound just as good with your ls6. let us know what she runs at the track. also inoticed that you had a one tire frier diff in the car was it the stock one or the q45 diff?
