Dont put a motor out of a 240sx in it. No offense, but thats stupid. If you want to go turbo go with a 2.3T out of a SVO mustang or a Tbird. It bolts right up to the existing transmission.

Yeah please dont put a jap motor in your ford its just not right... That being said The 2.3 when you boost the ever living hell out of it will put up a very good fight and spin the tires all day oh and get you down the track right quick

personally i think it would be badass if you got your hands on an sr20. stock turbo, in light applications they are quick as hell. hold a good amount of boost stock as well.

if going with a sr20, you might as well turbo a ka24de motor, they hold well and are cheaper than the sr motor

very true but the SR is already turboed and takes a bit of the work out of it. i assume they would cost around the same after you buy the KA and rebuild it (if you wanna make sure everythings cool, i would) then purchase a decent turbo kit or piece one together. or just buy a 240 that already has an sr swap! 50% of the 240's for sale here are swapped.
