The RB26DETT will fit with some work. Far better motor and cheaper for upgrades.

Wouldn't the RB26 in a 240 cause the wheels to spin in third?

yes you can put the VG into the 240 sx with custome motormounts and maybe cutting of the firewall "if needed" and there are almost as many products for a VG is there are for an RB, depends on what you want, id just stick in a ca18et/ca18det. cheaper than an SR20det yet still has potential because of its turbo nature.



i put ca18et and ca18det because i cant remember if those only came in sohc cam form or also dohc form

CA18DET

CA (head design)
18 1.8ltr
D Double over head cam
E Electronic fuel injection
T Turbo

The ca18det is a lot cheaper then a SR20det

UK And Australian 200sx only ever came with Sr20det Motors. Red Top and later VVL black top
Jap S13 silvia has a option of CA or SR

And CA line of motors were always double overhead cam. L series motors before them were single cams
