    FS: 1996 Nissan 240sx with 819wHP VH45DE-T

    I am sad to say that I am letting go of my 1996 Nissan 240sx. This car has been lots of fun. After finding the stock-internal limit of my VH45DE to be 819wHP, and watching the rotating assembly put 2 holes through the engine block, I have not had the time to swap another engine back in. The car basically went straight from the dyno room back into my garage, where it has sat for 8 years now.


    The engine's internals were ALL stock, so swapping in another used stock engine should be all it takes.


    Anyway, here's the high-level specs:


    Engine: Infiniti Q45 V8 (4.5L, DOHC, ALL STOCK)
    Transmission: 300zx twin turbo 5-speed
    Clutch: SPEC stage 5 sintered iron disc
    Transmission Adapter: Water-jet cut adapter plate, milled bell housing
    Engine & Trans Mounts: Custom, solid steel mounts
    Turbo: Garrett 72mm from a Detroit Diesel engine,
    60mm wastegate with external dump
    Intercooler: 24 x 12 x 3 fed by 3 mandrel-bent tubing
    Fuel: E85 or 93 octane
    Engine Management: AEM EMS, Low-Impedance Injector Driver Board
    Fuel Injectors: 150 lb/hr low-impedance
    Fuel Pumps: 3 parallel in-tank Walbro 255HP's staged at boost levels
    Fuel System: -10AN Feed to Aeromotive fuel pressure regulator
    Cooling system: Radiator relocated to trunk to make space for turbo
    Driveshaft: Custom
    Intake Manifold: Custom, CAD CFD-Designed, short-runner, balanced plenums
    Exhaust Manifolds: Stock tubular manifolds re-designed to point forward
    Exhaust: 4 Diameter w/ resonator & muffler
    Rear End: Stock, welded spider gears
    Interior: 10 point 1-3/4 roll cage
    Included Extras: Many extra Nissan parts in my garage! I have a lot!


    Power: 819 wHP / 727 wTQ @ 20psi boost (stock rods broke)
    759 wHP / 685 wTQ @ 18psi boost

    Keep in mind the car has been sitting for 8 years in my garage. It is dusty and dirty. This car is the opposite of a "show car", but I have never been one for body work.

    Asking $6,000 OBO. Swap in another used $200 VH45DE and see if you can keep the tires from spinning. See my profile for email address.

    Will post current pictures soon.

    Sounds like swapping in another stock bottom end would just set you up for another ka-boom. Unless, of course, you don't use the power you went to the time and expense to build in!
    If someone blows up a school with a bomb they go after the bomber ... if someone shoots up a school they go after the gun.

    A privilege is just a right that has been taken away by government.

    Political correctness is cowardice wrapped in a lie.

    All he has to do is use less boost.
    We know 819 whp is too much (which is like 950 at the motor).. just boost it to let it make 650 whp or so (which is still 720 ish at the motor)
