Type Sh blues

so since getting my lude a week ago, and learning it is a sh, and then researching all the problems it is with modding it ive made my decision. All im going to do with this car is kiss (keep it simple stupid). Im going to buy good header, intake, do a good exhaust system, good plugs and wires, and maybe some spoon cams and thats all the mods this car is going to get. Then i will repaint it and freshen up all the stuff that makes it look good lol.

But ive finally decided what car i want to build, im going to keep the lude for a dd, and im going to start looking for a 240sx shell, thats all i want is a shell, i dont care if it doesnt have a interior, and im going to build the piss out of it, do a s13 or s14 look with it, a rb26dett swap, bigger turbos, nice rims paint and interior!!

Ive always been partial to the 240s, just never decided to pull the trigger on one. I started a new job, and i think i can finally afford to build one the way i want. I just got back home last night after working in Mississippi for 10 days, and my paycheck coming to me next wed will be 3800 dollars, and it looks like its going to be a steady thing so im pretty stoked.

So is should be starting on the lude ordering parts next week, so i will start a build thread on it, and if it is ok with you guys, i will do one for my 240sx when i get it

Re: Type Sh blues

Sounds like a good idea. I'm pretty much going the same route on my '94 H22. Except i'm not going with a 240. I'm thinking either building an Integra or an Eclipse. Either way, my Prelude is going to stay as a daily driver cause i'm not comfortable enough with the H22 architecture to do a 400-500whp build on it.

Re: Type Sh blues

Ill start on a few things this weekend with the lude, like paint the valve cover red, and raise the car a little bit, it is slammed on type one coilovers and it is just way to low for me, so ill raise it up bout a inch and get the engine bay cleaned up

Re: Type Sh blues

I have an SH that's now got a base front end and the SH motor went bye-bye. There are things you can do to make an SH whatever you want, its just how much work do you want to put in it..

Re: Type Sh blues

Kinda changed my mind on the motor for the 240, I'm going to go with the tried and true 2jzgte motor, I've been researching and tech2 motorsports does a swap kit, with all the parts, not counting the motor upgrades, I'm looking at between 10 and 12g's give or take a 1000 if I find some deals, 12000 being using all tech2 parts, looking to get my 240 shell in the next month if things go right
