    Sup guys I'm Akil. I'm your ordinary college kid with a sick refund check ready to be blown on something nice. Yup that's right, I wanna get my first 240 (preferably a S14). Not looking to do any major drifting or anything crazy like that yet, just something I can dd and have fun driving on my weekends. Well my question is this:

    Can anyone give me any advice on what I should look for when buying shells and motors separately? Also, I've been looking at the "for sale" thread on here, craigslist, etc and figured it would be cheaper to buy a shell and a motor ( in my case I would want a Ka), and have some shop install the motor for me. I could be wrong about this process being cheaper than outright buying a S14 for $3800+ and if I am please correct me. Like I said I'm new and just wanna get a good start.

    69? you were either born in 69 or you are 18.
    wheels can take you around. Wheels can cut you down. We can go from boom to bust, from dreaming to a bowl of dust. We can fall from the rockets red glare down to "brother can you spare.." another war, another wasteland and another lost generation

    hey hey easy on the 69 there guys. Like said above get a full running car if you are doing a swap then get a shell and swap. But if you are in collage you are going to need more then a "big refund check" to keep up with a 240 so I hope you have a job too. Welcome and good luck man.

    Lol, "The money pits of atlanta" But yes I have a steady local job at a pizza shop ^.^ If basic maintenance is kept up frequently, I assume that would eliminate alot of the problems I hear about 240 correct?

    If you plan on dailying it I'd just get a running car so that you can get a good test drive. I'd hate to do all the "build" work and find a million problems when it's done.


    You tryna' get sideways, bruh?
