I want to start drag racing and want to get an import to tune up. I was thinking of getting a Nissan 240sx or the 300zx. However I like the 240sx with a Silvia body it but but after the car $5000, engine swap $2000, and body, engine and turbo upgrades ~$3000. It cost more than the 300zx ~$6000 with Turbo Kit ~$2500, and a body kit $400. What do you guys recommend. Thanks.
A lot of the import drag racers grab a 240 or similar lightweight car and drop a V8 in. Not sure if you'd be interested in that. Anyway, I'd take the 240 over the 300.
