i always loved the aggressive look of the front ends of those, but never really cared for the back end. Regardless, that's a very impressive list of mods and definitely a sweet ride. All too often you see 240s just trashed from kids getting hold of them. Good to see you break the mold.

Well done.

Power figures?

As it sits right now (13 psi and roughly 270 ish whp)

the ecu is tuned for 18psi (roughly 300whp) mids 12's

the car is set up fuel and engine management wise for a gt28r (400whp or so) 11s ish with this kit.

Holy fart can exhaust. Any way to "tone down" the muffler in to some attractive tipes or something? I always thought canister style exhausts ruined the looked of otherwise attractive cars. JMHO

Ever thought of doing for a s15 front end conversion?

S15 front + Vertex kit = pure sex. Then again i do just love s15's a lot.

Too much $$$. The car isn't supposed to be show quality. It's clean, fast and meant to be driven, that's about it.

The Silvia (or 240SX) here used a non-turbo'd engine. KA20 or something like; I think it is the same engine as a Frontier back in the day.
