VA - FS: 92 240sx fastback. SR powered. Solid car.
So, I'm putting this up for sale to see what kind of offers I will get. The car runs great, if I sell the car I may try my hand at another motor swap on another chassis. I'm not in a rush to sell it. If it doesn't sell; I don't mind holding on to it. Just seeing what I can get out of it.
The car is located in central VA. Garage kept.

All work was done by me at home. I took tons of pictures and made posts. My username is bumnah. I'm on Club240, Fresh Alloy and NICO. Feel free to search my name for posts regarding the car.
I took great care in putting this motor in and I took my time. I plan to keep the car if no one gives me the $ I'd like to receiver for putting it together. When I replaced bolts and nuts I cleaned them before reassembly so they would thread on nice and clean. I cleaned the inside the bell housing for an hour to remove as much crud as possible. I didn't rush the install, and I didn't cut corners. I bought name brand quality parts to get as oem as possible of an install.
How the car runs. Perfect. The car vibrates as expected with the stiff motor/tranny mounts. She fires up nice and smooth everytime. Fully spooled by 2400 rpms. Pulls solid to the redline. I have put ~6000 miles on the motor since I got her running. No issues what so ever.
3 problems I have found but don't plan to address:
5th gear grind (common stuff on these motor swaps). If you do it slowly no grind, pulls fine. Syncro is worn out. From a motor from japan if this is the worst it gets I'm happy with it. B&M short shifter makes a noise. Again common stuff. It's minor to me since the whole car vibrates from the motor swap. None of these will hurt the car or ruin the fun in driving the car. Perhaps this is version 01. But I've heard version 02 doesn't make the noise. I dunno. Every RWD car that i've driven with a short throw shifter in the transmission made this noise.
Reverse lights do not work. Only sensor plugged in is the speedo. None of the transmission plugs other than that are plugged in. I did that to bypass the speed limiter. You can plug it in and make it work.
The car shoots fire out the muffler because of the vent to atmosphere BOV; easily fixed by having it vent back in the system.
There is no emission equipment on this car at all.
Asking price: BEST OFFER. There’s over $12k in parts invested already. NOT including the purchase of the car. I don't expect to get all my money back, but don't expect me to give this car away.
