Ok, I am interested in getting a 200sx. Right now I have a 94 nissan pickup V6, and I am scared that if I get a 200sx it will be too underpowered for me. I want something pretty fast with some balls, but it doesn't have to be the fastest thing around. I just want to be able to blow those ricer civics and eclipses out of the water.

I am looking specifically at the SE-R model because it has the 150 hp right? But that still seems like it might be too underpowered for me. And are there any cheap mods I could do to up the horsepower up a bit?

Oh and I'm new into these cars. Is the 240sx and the 200sx the same car? That's confusing me.

First let's clear this up. The 240SX and 200SX are very different cars. The 240SX is a rear wheel drive sports coupe, and the 200SX is a front wheel drive "sports coupe" based on the Sentra. 240's have a 2.4 liter 4 banger, and the 200 can be had with either a 1.6 or a 2.0 in the SE-R...

Okay - Now on to more...

If you really want a 200, look for an SE-R, definitely...

Don't know the excact HP, but as far as more HP, there is large aftermarket support for these cars, especially the older ones...

And they'll move pretty quick. Just keep the RPM's up http://www.freshalloy.com/

But I say get a 240SX!!! You'll have more fun with it, and it's more exclusive!!!

Hope that helps (some) - Brian

Thanks for the good reply.

I'd love to take a 240sx over the 200, but this http://www.autotrader.com/findacar/vdetail.jtmpl?car_id=75102179&dealer_id=&certified=n&max_price=&start_year=1985&end_year=2001&address=84003&search_type=used&make=NISSAN&model=24 0SX&distance=200&car_year=1996&ac_afflt=none is the only 240sx I can find within 200 miles.

What about cheap performance upgrades for the 200sx, anybody know anything about that?

Ok, i've been looking further into 300zx, and i'm liking them.

Is there significant better performance with the 300zx twin turbo's? I mean is it worth the extra 3 or $4k? Oh nevermind, the turbo's has 300HP instead of 222.

Ask around the Sentra forum about the late model 200SX; it's the same thing as a Sentra SE sedan, with two doors.

I have a REAL 200SX http://www.freshalloy.com/
