KA Your opinion.

Looking at purchasing a vehicle and I need someone's opinion. I know how to properly check when buying a used vehicle and plan on having it looked at by a mechanic. All I'm asking is what you guys think of the build and if it is worth 13k. He has receipts for about 30k and the build has 9kmiles and the car has 200k.


His post as follows
This is one of the nicest examples of a 1995 Nissan 240sx you will ever see.

The car is pristine with fresh Gunmetal Grey Metallic paint on a flawless s14.5 Silvia conversion. All four fenders are perfectly widened, 20mm front and 20mm rear to fit 17x9.5 +12 & 17x9.5 +12 Rota grids. Professionally tuned to a conservative 450hp at 20lbs of boost on 93 octane, this 240sx has a custom built ka24det motor and drivetrain capable of handling upwards of 750hp.

No 240SX is ever worth $13,0000.

13k? Dude you're better off getting an E46 M3 or a Supra and mod that, instead of a headache. Not just that, but for KA-T? Negative. Would understand an LS or 2J/Rb26 swap.

Save your money and trouble, and keep looking.

Q45 brakes and Rotas?! ROFL! Would I pay $13k for a 240? Hell no. Those HP numbers seem fishy to me. Get dyno charts. With those parts, I'd say that price is about right, but there's just no way in hell I'd sink that much money into a KA.

Seconded. Either get a stock 240 and build it yourself, or invest in something more ballin'. With that kind of money, I'd be looking at E46's or S2000's. The last thing you want to do is inherit someone else's project.

You can drop 13k on a car that might blow up in 20min or spend 13k on a nicer unmolested car (e46,s2k,z,etc) that you don't have to worry about exploding.

I'd start with a car thats nicer than a 240 if you have that kind of money. Building your own car is half the fun anyway.

First off, who ever list a gawdamn Duralast battery as a mod list needs to get punched in the face. Second, this owner seems to be pretty fucking clueless on his mods. 20G turbo is NOT a Garrett Turbo. Third, no fucking way in hell a 20G and 650cc injectors will get you 450whp.

Ultimately, it's worth whatever you're willing to pay for it. Some owners think their car is worth $17k because they threw $20k on it.

I dont like the car and dont think its worth its asking price. Its very 2001.


More importantly, the turbo is too close to... everything.
