OK well Iam trying to figure out if I should Save for another month and get the s14 motor, or just get the S13 motor. btw I drive a 1996 s14

Eventaly Iam going to upgrade prety much everything Trubo, Turbo manifold, Blitz LM Intercooler, bigger injectors etc..

What chasis are you putting it in? If you're replacing all that you say you are, i'd get the s13 motor, especially if you've got a s13 chasis. Although s14 engines in s14's are always more rare, in my experience anyone. For some reason, im guessing cost, you dont see anywhere near as many of those

it says in my profile its a 1996 240sx

I am going all out and getting the S14 motor/clip, mostly because I am looking for the little bit of benefit you get from the S14 over the S13 and yes it is more rare and yes it will cost you probably another 500-1000. I am expecting my clip fairly soon!!!! http://forums.freshalloy.com/ubbthreads/images/icons/smile.gif

If you're going mild tuned, just get the S14 engine.

If you going all out, get the S13 engine, save your money for parts. You will have the same outcome, but one will be cheaper.

Thats what I was thinking.. is VVT very noticeable in the s14 or is it the turbo that is prety much makeing all the power

It's the turbo. Don't let anyone BS you.
