    I pick her up tomorrow evening. The shop is putting on tein springs, agx shocks, subframe bushings and alignment.


    121k miles

    $7100 out the door.

    Future mods will be S14 SR20 5-speed swap sometime early next year. She is a daily driver til then.

    go rb25. I've driven both stock and tuned versions of all 3 engines (ka, sr, rb). and a stock rb will keep you happy for a while, whereas the 4-bangers will leave you wanting more right away. and the inline 6 is quiet as shit. no hassle from law enforcement!

    why hate on the AT? Sounds like when he changes the engine he will be dropping in a 5-speed MT.

    I see it with the Z31, people buy clean AT and swap in a MT. Just because it can be hard to find a clean MT.

    picked up it up yesterday evening and drove it around for awhile. Such a fun car to drive! I really dont know why the KA gets so much hate, it's great for daily driving and has NO problem moving around traffic. I think it's a great motor...

    and the AT in this car is really strong and shifts great.....

    Because people are retarded and must have tiite JDM motors.
    I used to hate on the KA so I'm guilty as well, but after driving a KA-T they're responsive as hell!!
    Absolutely nothing bad about that motor
    I run SR still, know & build that motor much more than I do the KA
