Not being a dick, the people have been nice so far..but you may end up getting flamed by alot of people here just because this is a common swap. The advice thats been given so far is good except i would use a clutch fan opposed to e fans. The KAde and rb fan is alot better than the sr20 fan.

Aluminum 1pc driveshaft



1. save a little more money and get an S14 sr20det if possible
2. Do not use a Z32 maf unless you exceed the OEM maf capability
3. Use an OEM clutch fan and shroud
4. HKS if you do not want to recirculate, greddy type-s (authentic) if you intend to recirc.
5. I would use a typical VLSD if you daily drive
6. A one-piece driveshaft is a great upgrade for the drivetrain, but if you are involved in a specific car crash, the driveshaft may hurt you. A two-piece gives you a margin of safety.

It is not even a swap per se, the car exist as standard with that engine on every continent except america, and is called 200sx, not 240sx. He is just changing the car to what it is supposed to be :D

That's how I look at it, and the screwed up the steering wheel location, but I can live with that!
That's what we get for buying knockoffs!;)

How did u not find anything in google.

Stock motor mounts work fine

Why would you buy a Defi control unit if your buying aem gauges that makes zero since.

Your stock fan shroud and fan won't work, you need e fans or a sr shroud with your ka clutch fan.

i did fine stuff on google just wanted to know more from other people.

I thougth you need something to hook up the gauges, but i dont know what it is.

and im probley going to get e fans becuse i dont like how the other fan looks on the engine.
