Well this is the build of my drift/street car. the car is a 1989 240sx i bought it in June of 2011.
so lets get started i bought an RB25DET to slap in this bad boy. ive known people that have had sr20’s and rb20’s i was looking for a bit more stock power then those motors have, i know that you can build those other motors to make power pretty easily. but i also wanted to do something different, to help get the blog more known. everyone has an sr20 swap so the not much cool factor there. i also love the way that a straight six sounds. these are the reasons that i decided to go RB25. i purchased my motor swap from zerolift i usually dont by motors online, i like to buy them from aa place i can see them and pick out a good one. BUT unfortunately RB25’s were very hard to find in southern California i went to and called numerous places with no luck. so i did some research on what the best place to order a motor from online was. zerolift had tons of great reviews so i went with them i bought a full series 2 swap from them and they dshipped it to my door. when the motor arrived to my surprise i found it to be very clean. i was very happy.
so at the end of may 2011 i started to get a parts pile going in my house. i ordered most of my parts from rawbrokerage.com those guys are awsome. and the rest i got from enjuku racing those guys are awesome as well. i was very happy with both of there customer services. parts started pilling up at my house. except for a few items that were out of stock. wiring harness, FMIC, and some other misc things.
so pictured above is the first delivery i got. it includes. ACT 6 puck unsprung clutch with HD pressure plate, DSS aluminum drive shaft, isis radiator, sikky thermal intake manifold gasket, nismo thermostat, raw brokerage radiator hoses, cs test pipe, cs stainless steel turbo lines, walbro fuel pump, raw brokerage intake kit, mckinney mount kit with semi solid motor mounts, isis shot gun style 3″ exhaust.
Pictured above, i finally got my PSM cobra down pipe and i installed the clutch and turbo lines.
Above is how the car started out stock, SOHC POWER lol
Above, got it pulled out and started to clean the engine bay.
Above, got the engine bay clean, and the started to stitch weld the engine bay.
Got the engine all stitched up.
Welded up the diff and installed it.
Installed cs sub frame collars.
got the motor in. it went i pretty easy. you just have to pound the firewall a little for stater clearance issues.mckinney mount kit was very well made and had to make only a few minor adjustments.
Threw on some old teins my friend had lying around
Got some wheels, sportmax 527’s 17×9.75 plus 22.in black chrome
Got some more parts. PSM wheels spacers, shift knob, ebrake drift knob, and water temp sensor adapter, autometer boost gauge, muteki lug nuts, aeromotive FPR kit, clutch pedal, and brake pedal for manual car.
this is how it sits now as of august. it needs to go a little lower still :).
things started getting more serious.
then it just got outta hand.
then i decided to totally ruin it and put a full cage in it.thus making it not fun to drive on the street.
THENNNNN i sold it cause i literally never drove it. and that was the end of that era, maybe sometime int he future i will get another drift car.
