Looking at a 240sx that a local guy is selling

Ok a guy down the road is selling a 92 Nissan 240SX for $3,500.

107k miles on it, KA24DE, and Auto.(Probably going to get an SR20DET with the 5 speed)


Would it be worth it or should I talk him down a bit?(like around $2,000)

$3500 is to much for a 92, $3500 is 95 S14 territory. Most important check for rust on the chassis, look in the trunk under the carpeting. $2000 area is about right for a 92 240.

Don't pay 3500 for that 240.

I bought my 1990 240 for $1300 no rust on the chassis frame, etc etc, only rust was in the spare tire compartment but thats easily fixable with a new sheet of steel and welding it and cutting the rest off so that its flat.


And to be honest I'd get a 240 with 5 speed to begin with, yea you can convert it to 5 speed but I rather have the comfort that it was a factory installed component and not worry if you or someone else did a good job installing your 5 speed components. Plus before sr20det you can practice on the KA until you get the hang of stick unless you already know how to drive stick if so disregard my practice comment

I can drive stick on most cars... some of them i just cant get the feel of, I drive my friend's sisters integra all the time and his jeep all the time but his camaro is a pain in the *** to drive(clutch is a *****)


and Im still waiting for the guy to email me back about the car and possibly drop the price. If he agrees too Ill talk it over with my dad and see if he can lend me about 1000 and let me pay him back


As for trying to get a 5 speed put it in, its not a problem, I know several people that can do it. Its Kentucky its not like we dont know how to work on cars, Its what we do for fun. We just go out to the back yard and if the 1973 Dart Demon doesnt start up you work on it till it does

I dunno man, 240's are extremely cheap, it'd probably cost less to just get one with a 5 speed instead of do the conversion.

well the conversion usually cost $100-$150, I'm not saying its a difficult thing to do its just I'd be more comfortable to know it was factory installed, your pretty much at the mercy of whoever does the conversion, if they mess up and not realize it you could look into a bad ride or possibly be in a accident.

clutches on v8 sports cars are almost always going to be a lot stiffer than a clutch on an integra...if you can drive stick on an integra then a 240sx wont be much different.

my other 84's was the easiest clutch to apply...even when i had the t56 in my car with a dual friction clutch and heavy duty pressure plate...it was easy as hell...only had to push down maybe an inch or so to engage/disengage

im pretty sure a stick on a nissan 240sx would be much easier to drive than a camaro...driving stick after coming off a start is pretty simple on most stock cars but when you're used to driving something with...i dunno 130 tq., switching over to driving stick on a good sized v8 with double the tq is going to seem waaayyyy touchier off the line. im used to driving stick on an acura integra so when i took my brother's 2002 mustang gt for drive i was shakin all around tryin to get the thing goin. the activation point on the integra seemed like a mile longer than the one on the mustang.

oh and...please excuse my lack of car terminology.

Most if not ALL 240's you'll come across are going to be a bit overpriced because people know the popularity of them. Just buy a 5 speed and keep the stock ka24de. An sr20det can wait until you become a more experienced driver. Plus, it costs some money to buy the engine. tranny, etc. and have someone swap it.

I was planing on keeping the KA for a while... like.... until the engine quits(which could be years)

That's what I'm going to do. Get as much as I can out of the stock engine. If I can I'll swap in another ka24de and turbo it if i REALLY felt the need for a turbo.
