I am selling my '98 240SX SE (no ABS, no VLSD) with 63k original miles because I'm tired of having 2 cars and want to buy just one comfortable and somewhat fast car, probably a G34C or a TL. Car is very clean and people are genuinely surprised to find out how old it is. It has never been drifted or raced. I am asking $11.5k for it and I am firm on the price. I would rather keep it than give it away, so serious buyers only please. I can be reached at adamstec@gmail.com. I am located about 40 miles NW from Chicago.

Here is a list of mods:

Engine (only about 500 miles with turbo kit):
- 50 trim, .48A/R Turbonetics T3/T04E w/360 degree thrust bearing (just bought brand new from JGS and it came with a 1 year no questions asked warranty)
- Boost Designs tubular stainless steel manifold
- 3" Boost Designs stainless steel DP modified for a Ford 5 bolt turbo discharge and added flex section
- 38mm Tial WG
- 24"x6"x3.5" Boost Designs intercooler
- Greddy Type S BOV
- JGS oil feed and return lines
- 3" Catco cat
- 3" SSAC exhaust
- Z32 MAF
- 555cc/min Touge Factory injectors
- Walbro 255lph fuel pump
- Innovate LC-1 wideband with digital display
- manual boost controller @ 8 psi

- Optima redtop battery in trunk
- OBX short throw shifter
- Eibach Pro-Kit springs with AGX struts
- front 28mm Z32 brakes with Metal Master pads
- 18x8 +30mm MB Motoring Rev wheels painted bronze
- Yokohama AVS ES100 225/40-18 tires with good tread left
- Nismo tension rod bushings (not installed yet, but stock ones are leaking silicone)
- Autometer mechanical boost gauge on steering column
- Palm Pilot with code/miscellaneous sensor reader software (optional - will include for the right price)

I bought the car in March of '04 with 44k miles after searching for one for over a year. Finally, I had to fly out to St. Louis to pick this one up. When I ran the carfax back then, it showed a minor rear end collision, but the car has a clear IL title.

Car runs fine, but has some minor problems as all used, modded cars do:
- very small oil pan leak
- small area (about 3" sq.) where clear coat peeled of the rear bumper (see photo)
- minor rust on left rear fender lip (see photo)
- car is due for emissions in IL, but should pass with the '96 ECU (or just register it at a zip code with no emissions)
- car dynoed at 200rwhp/230rwtq (uncorrected with maximum smoothing) with 2 boost leaks that I found and fixed later and running incredibly rich with AFR's below 10.0 above 3.5k rpms; it should be at around 250rwhp at 8psi and the turbo and fuel system will support about 350rwhp
- AC does not work, but I do have all the parts except one of the fittings on the low pressure line is broken

I fixed the transmission leak last night. It turned out that the lower zip tie on the bottom boot around the shifter came off. I edited the description above to reflect this.

Also, I will be out of town and away from civilization this weekend, but I will reply to emails Sunday night.
