hasnihon.com - I've dealt with them, brought in a few cars with them and they are trustworthy. You'd probably save money dealing with them vs a local importer, but then it would take longer than buying something already here obviously.

you can get a front clip from them there, would be fairly easy to import compared to doing a whole car.

RB26 will be a tough swap because of the twin turbo setup and not a lot room to work with in the engine bay of the 240. going to need a rb25 transmission and aftermarket driveshaft and mounting brackets. Go on 240sx forums to get some good advice and build thread.

Also you'll need a large sum of cash probably 10g's plus

I'd go with the sr20 or if you want more power the rb25

Not really. Most people blow RB or SR motors because they do not upgrade the turbo to a bigger one and they run high psi on them. Spend the money and get a bigger turbo. Beats blowing up an engine.

I would recommend using an RB25DET over the RB26. You can get great power out of the RB25 and wont kill your wallet too hard.

if you got the pockets for a rb26 then I think more people would recommend a ls swap.
