super late!! my high school budget build thread
 
i been on these forums for a while didnt make a account itll i actually got my 40 but thanks to this site my close friends and a lkq's here it is
how she started,
I got her crashed on craigs for cheap a week before i turned 16 thanks to my bro. luckilly i was taking autobody at sj, so after 200$ in parts and alot of work replacing core support i got her fixed!!

her progress,
i eventually got a bumper from els13coupe's old 240 and i painted it added a piggy lip,
she sat for about 2 years as i worked on her steadilly due to no job, first done was a five speed swap, back in the day when h240sx was more helpfull got tranny, clutch,flywheel, and bolts from aguy that later on sold my bro his 510, bought every thing else for another guy parting his 240. the swap took for ever due to the flywhell bolts being wrong thank fully another h240 member form college station sold and delivered some bolts to me for 20$, awsome ass dude saved my life lol........ after i got her done i discovered the used clutch was glazed and slipping and the used master would loose presure randomely.

when i had boost,
my bro got me the kit as a early grad pressent, so when we changed the clutch out we did alot, it was super fun to drive lots of power. but the ebay kit gave me some problems,it had a boost leak and it wasnt tuned due to lack of money :(

i had no job and needed a good daily so i sold off the turbo kit to help bro get his 40 up and running again ...... till i got a job at oreillys :) after I got ksports, tons of suspension upgrades, mudflaps, wired tucked by my brother, straight pipe, s14 seat, msd, tuns of stickers to compensate for lost hp, and most recently a bike rack!!! i plan on rocking some drift spare on it for a while....... future prgress includes painting it white sil front and i will keep rocking ka till i have enough for a vh45

awsome plate lol
