Would you drive it?

I would, but I would get rid of that huge wing on the back.

i would take the 4 feet tall spoiler off first, and exchanging that exhaust tip for something a bit more average. then i would rock that car

biggest sleeper i've ever seen!


there's a guy in town with a S13.5 hatch with the SR20DET. it's pretty nice, but i found another S13 with the RB26DETT & it's much nicer than the other one, but of course, the LS7 beats them both.

i almost bought a 95 240 a couple years back to drop an LS2 in. it was either that or a 92 GT-R. i ended up needing to save lots of money so i just got this truck!

as for the OP's question: without a doubt!

I think I'd leave all the other crap on so that people think its a ricer. Then again, the sound of the engine might be a bit of a give away . . .

considering S15s ain't technically DOT legal in the states, that's a bit more of a challenge.

I would take the engine out of it, and throw that heap -o- trash of a car away.

Seeing how they didn't move the motor back from what I could tell ( stock dash) wonder how it handles with the extra weight on the front wheels?

My son actually had a 95 Nissan 240SX that he did an RB25 engine swap on. Single Turbo straight six. He bought the motor from Japan. It was his first attempt at any type of mechanical work. And he did it pretty much by himself. Those 240SX's are real sleepers, they weigh less than 3000 lbs. All I remember is him smoking my new G35 Coupe at the time.

I would definitely drive that car...without the wing.
