so i was out on a cruise lastnight nothing special. i ran into a couple 240 guys up at qt in bethalto. chatted a little went back to tommys garage. rob commented on how he liked my mirrors. and i told him if he had nice stock ones i would trade him. DONE DEAL so i have some stock mirrors on now.
garage i followed the guys back too. 3 240sx, parts, motors, lifts. yada.
hahaha dont kick my ***, but here is my bpv fix, i refitted some o rings, some metal glue. and two exhaust flanges. holds boost perfectly now. it will hold up until next weekend.
had the truck out a little last night too
ah super bummed i didnt keep up with this thread. so i had the 240.mods
hlsd, alm 1 piece driveshaft, stance coilovers, xxr 527s, brand new turbo, full exhaust, new carpet. it was awesome!!!! here it is
and then one tragic morning on the way to work this happened.....
at that point i was trying to decide if it was better to scrap the shell or try to get it all fixed. i tossed around all summer, even picked up a shell and tore into restoring and body work on it. then ultimately decided to keep the car as it was with some minor upgrades you now see here
threw in an rb20, this particular motor put down 240hp to the wheels on an s13 with similar weight and supporting mods. motor is all the same, wire tucked as well as some other goods that havent been put in. the pictures are all from yesterday, scott the gent at izzys custom cages just showed me a rough draft of the finished product. he said this is a very loose look and end result will look as factory for the most part.
i recognize those old front wheels.... hoshino impuls.... def well loved in the toyota community.... very rare! sweet 240... nothing like rwd jap car.... i've never had a 240, def liked them esp sr20det's... i've had 2 84 celica gts's (rwd 22re) and currently a mint early 86 celicasupra, mint where it doesn't go out in the rain and i miss rwd in the rain!
