Ive been doing a lot of thinking regarding tuning my engine. I have a 2.8 30v and yeaaaa I kno, nuttin really. There is the PES s/c and thats about it. Hopefully they will release an intercooler soon and stroker kit...but i doubt it. All of that will be so much money though. I figured....maybe I can find a cheap 1.8T motor that I can build. I would let it sit in my garage and of course upgrade turbo..all that stuff while I can still drive my 2.8 around. It is pretty much a straight drop if I put the 1.8T where the 2.8 used to be? My friend with a 240sx just bought a 2nd KA24 for $250!!! thats sooo cheap...it has like 90k on it. I doubt I will find a running 1.8T for that cheap...but can anyone help me out?

If you want to mod...Sell the 2.8, buy a 1.8T or B5 S4....

Well I had an 03 Yellow, black lowers/tail, but my brother took it down to AZ with him to race...so then I got a 02 954RR...Do you have a 600RR, if you do you should check out www.600rr.net

keeping the 600rr as a streetbike. Promised not to really get into is so it stays as a good streetbike. Got the heavier, underpowered 03 though. black/silver

So you've never modded the bike?!?! That was my favorite part about having the 600rr...My brothers 600RR is probably putting out around 115hp. He has a full M4 exhaust, PC3, yada yada yada...Mod that bitch.

You could atleast give your bike a slip-on, I had a Jardine on mine and it sounded sweet. They are only like ~300 and make it sound like a dream.

i kind of like being able to haul ass w/o being too loud, it's very helpful on a black streetbike if you know what i mean. can't really hear me idling and w/o reflectors or lights...

But most of the time not being seen is the worst thing you could have happen... I mean I get the point about all black/no lights/night/popo. But the reason I had a slipon was so that if I did get in somebodys blindspot(tried to never be in), they could atleast hear something. There are a lot of stupid ass drivers out there today that don't even look for anything but cars...its rediculous.

Well it's gotten to the point where I just simply ride completely around traffic. I'm always vulnerable when I'm in it so I try to stay in a cage during commuting hours or I go around on the bike. Even when I pull a racebike w/ a fishtail pipe on the street people change lanes in front of me like they have no concept of signals, blind spots or shoulder checking. Thank goodness they're like dogs and lean their heads just prior to turning

dont hold your breath on more 2.8 mods coming to the market.

and it shouldnt be too hard to swap the motor, assuming you find a good donor car and have done an easier swap before.

and dont compare our cars to nissans, please.

I answered your question already...and everyone would agree. Sell your 2.8 and get a 1.8t if you want to mod. That would be the cheapest way to do it.
