I just sold my car to buy a 89 hatch back. I'm just trying to read up on all the differnces in the year models. The only thing i ever looked at was SR20DET information. Now I need to figure out the KA24.

I also want to find all the body differences. I'm not a big fan of the way my car looks as it sits right now. Definitly neeed newer front bumper.

Any points or nudges apprecaited.

thanks, ronnie

Check out SoCal240SX (http://www.socal240sx.org/) under the FAQ section. They have scanned in all of the original Nissan 240SX sales brochures. Most of what you need should be there.

I know i could just search...but the problem is......these questions are asked TOO many times. if i was to search, I'd be getting an INSANE number of returns. All I wanted was a nudge to a link.

But..thanks anyways... http://www.freshalloy.com/

the bumper and everything related to it (i.e. bumber lights, bumper reinforcement) is the only body difference between the 89-90 and 91-93 fastbacks.

89-90 has the KA24E which is SOHC producing 140hp(?)
91-94 has the KA24DE which is DOHC producing 155hp
94 model year only came in convertibles
VLSD (viscous limited slip differential) came as an option on the 91-93(94?) model years. it was part of a sports handling package which included four wheel steering system known as SUPERHICAS. ABS was an option.

i think thats the major differences....I THINK.

VLSD was an option on all years . Used to own a 89 fastback with it . Verified the fact that it came with it at Sage Nissan in Glendale California.

Lets just hope i'm one of the lucky ones with LSD...

Bumpers are fairly easy to locate, correct?
