View Full Version : S14 front end on S13?

07-24-2001, 03:57 PM
Hi folks. I recently got a hand me down 89 240sx beater from my Fiance http://www.freshalloy.com/, and want to start modifying it http://www.freshalloy.com/. Has anybody succesfully put a S14 front end(bumpers, headlights,...etc.) on a S13? Also, since I'm new to Nissans, can somebody let me know how hard it is to get a legitimate 180 RWHP out of the KA24E(without nitrous or boost)? Basically, I'd like to turn the 240 into a cool looking, reasonably quick, daily driver. Any Suggestions?

Well Mr. Chilidog

Since you are new, I will tell you what they told me whenI was new to this fourm, read all the old posts, and you will find a lot of info of the 240sx

about succesfully put a S14 front end on an S13, it can be done and has been done, it is very very hard to make if fit perfect.

I've seen some pics, maybe someone will post one

Seen it. Its not pretty.
I love the S14, and I also love the S13.
But not the bastard love child of the two. It'll look very "wierd"

Just my opinion. http://www.freshalloy.com/ if you like it, go for it!

I like the lights of the S13, you can make em look sleepy (halfway open). And the best part is there is a headlight conversion which will make it look like the 300zx lights. Sick!

Those light kits look nice, I agree anthony, but keep it real and sick with pop-ups

I saw a pic of an S13 with 300ZX headlights. I'm not sure if I liked it or not, all I can say is that it looked different.

this one looks good. I like the look, ever since my first car in Tokyo Xtreme Racer 2 was a 180sx (RPS13) and saw those lights, I wanted one.

off topic. . . sorta
i wonder if some random kid picked up that magazine and called that car "rice". . . . if you think about it, drift cars are kinda "ricey" (the ones with stickers and duct tape. . . . oh wait, that's my old S13. . .) i think dents and dings are cool when you can say "yeah. . . opposite lock, and i was about to hold it but i bailed when i saw that ditch coming up. . . ." everyone else just hits other cars and stuff driving "normal"

Thanks for the replies. I was having trouble with the archive search, though. Even doing searches on really general terms gave no results. Anyway, maybe it was just a temporary problem.

I like the 300zx style light conversion, but I'd still like to see an S14 nose on a S13 fastback if anyone has a pic or can point me in the right direction.
