    just stumbled on this on ebay USA

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Nissa...#ht_500wt_1182

    and if you get a chance look it up on youtube, possibly the gayest 240sx I ever seen...
    It's... different, that's for sure. He's also got a 944 and another Silvia in the background so it's not like he's short of projects to play with. Idk, even though aesthetically it's a bag of dicks, at least he decided to see it through to the end.

    Dat exhaust though, not sure wtf he was thinking, especially with it being a convertible and all.

    • Bleh, 9.1:1 compression ratio? No thanks.
      Can find some Tomei pistons with a 13:1 compression ratio.

        Oh you want NA

        Enjoy your exorbitant "JDM YO" markup.

        There are also 11:1 versions of those pistons I linked. About right if you like pump gas.

        • $400 for those Tomei pistons. Not too bad.

            What are they made of, does it come with pistons, and if it does, what kind are they made of?

                Are you out of your f^cking mind.

                That's more than the price of brand new keith black forged pistons for almost ANY V8 or V6.

                • Used pistons from an engine with unknown history. You do realize how metal fatigue works right? Have fun with that.

                  • Yes.
                    Come on now, you've seen me on these forums for close to a year. You should know I'm crazy.

                      • That's a bit better.
                        I think you can get 12.5:1 Autech SR20 pistons straight from Nissan if you've got the part code. Wonder how much they'd go for.

                        Is there any way to tell how many revs certain parts could handle?

                        • You are aware that you'll have to run special fuels with over 12:1 compression, right?

                          • Most people with the autech engines tend to run 95 octane. There's not a huge amount of choice in Australia.
                            Some places have 100 octane, but they're hard to come by.

                              I've consulted with an engine builder and an engineer, they says "just no." on the 95 octane bit. Honestly, the highest compression i would go with your 96 octane would be 11:1.

                              edit: Get on skype so we can tell you why this doesn't work.

                              • Wiseco makes 12:1 pistons too for the SR20 PN: KE233M87

                                12.5 on 95 will loose so much power from the ecu cutting timing.

                                If you don't have the fuel to use the compression, why bother?
