I decided to do it while I was high on crack, but then I became sober and realized that even not high on crack it is a good idea and you can get these balls

Rad is all fixed and sensors cleaned out and its running good now. Took it for another drive, need to adjust the clutch. I'm stoked

It is kind of a strange idea. SR20s are popular because the balance a near perfect weight ratio for drifting in S13s and S14s. They aren't necessarily a holy drift motor. I think it would of been easier to do a boosted b230/4 or a T6/B6304... but thats just me.

HOWEVER

Props for tryin something different. Hope all goes well man! Lets see that beast sideways when you're done!

this is bad ass. Forget the haters. I dont know if this should be the place for discussion on the topic that is heavily discussed already. But I also was thinking of doing this or someone else said a KA24DET stock 240 motor. I've been bouncing around the idea of doing a KA turbo. I know the motors better and parts are cheaper and much more redialy available and gobs of torque for not much $$$$....hmmmmm

keep up the good work!

well having the alloy block that the sr has it weighs out the 240 to 50/50
also a 240 only weighs a tiny bit more the a r32 4 door and there and many proven r32 4 door powered by sr20s in japan.. i looked into this quite a lot before i did mine

Nice swap man, I like to see people do what they want to- to "THEIR-OWN-CAR" nice work. I had people throwing stones @ me for doing the 1JZ swap but I like the engine, I know the engine and know what upgrades the engine responds well too. Again nice swap.

I was originally thinking rd20, but the an sr came up for sale in my area(and cheap). I have no problem with the b230, but the tranny was what made an sr alot better, cause I was able to do the sr swap for cheaper then +ting the b230 and a t5 swap. Only took me 2 months and the only thing I didn't do myself was the driveshaft. I know tons of people in my area who have nissans, my friend had a 240sx parts car and a skyline parts car and know another guy with a ton of jdm and canadian 240sx parts cars so gathering parts was nothing but sunshine and lollypops.

Didn't mean to copy you streetkarnage, but thats just kinda how it worked out. I would have gone with a 240sx or a rx7 or something sporty, but I already had a volvo so, ya know

Took the car on a club cruise, ran great for the whole thing, kinda threw it together suspension wise, under acceleration, people said it looks like it does wheelies. Car is parked for a little bit till I can pay some bills and order coilover sleeves and shocks, things gunna be slammed .
