Whether you use your 240sx for daily driving, racing, or drifting, the best way to keep your Nissan functioning optimally is to get the right tools for monitoring its inner workings. Many choose aftermarket automotive gauges and other diagnostic devices to help monitor the most vital functions of their vehicle to ensure there is no damage being done to the vehicle’s engine, turbo, exhaust manifold and more. Nothing brings out a custom interior style like a set of gauges mounted to your 240sx’s dashboard or A-pillar.
240sx Boost Your KA24 Cheap
Many people who first get into the Nissan 240sx will notice the S Chassis has great handling, looks pretty good, but lacks something. Power… The ka24e and ka24de although have pretty good pull for being what they are, they fall on there face when it comes down to it. Yea, you can slap a intake and buy some EBAY headers and exhaust and think your gained a lot of power! The truth is you didn’t Intake, Headers, and Exhaust sound great and usually are, but in some cases you will lose power down low for power up high or vise versa. What I mean is you might lose mid RPM power but increase your lower RPM power. The ka24e and ka24de are not bag engines, they just need something more.
240sx Turbo Kit
Putting a turbo on a 240sx can easily be done in a day, My friends and I did it in a few hours with random turbo parts laying around my garage. It is very easy to throw a turbo on and ride out, BUT there are some short cuts people take that can lead to huge headaches and just a not so cool time. These days with the price of swaps being so cheap, SR20DET and RB20DET are going for pretty cheap where I live,”Florida”. You can get a swap for less than $1,600 and have boost in your 240sx in no time. If swaps are already turbo and cheaper, why not go with them you might be asking. That’s simple, the swap might be $1,600 but you do need more parts to finish it. By the time you are done you will be in it $2,000+ in most cases. Don’t get me wrong, I own SR’s too, they are fun, but just lack the power down low. When you put a turbo on a KA you can be conservative and gain 60-80 more HP and Torque, or if you know what your doing you can get well over 150 more HP and Torque.
