Ugh! Now I don't know what to get! What's the differences between the 200SX and the 240SX (Motors, interior, etc.)? I'm just asking because I've seen some 200SX's for pretty cheap. I guess I could always get an older 240SX, I've seen them under $5K. Anyways, if I can't find a 240SX for under $5K I still don't know what to get. I know the Mustang is the obvious choice but...something doesn't seem right about it for me. I really like the CRX and the Del Sol though. You guys said that those can be made to go either way (Power or handling) and I was just wondering, would it ever be able to compete with a Mustang in power or a 240SX in power? Thanks.

Re: Need Help: Narrowed It Down To 5...

In America, the 200SX is a front-wheel-drive, two-door Sentra, produced between 1995 and 1998. It was also in production from 1991 to 1994, but it was known as the Sentra coupe, not the 200SX. It came with a 110-hp motor, or in SE-R trim, a 140-hp motor called the SR20DE. The 240SX, on the other hand, is rear-wheel-drive, and comes with a 155-hp motor called the KA24DE. It was produced from 1989 to 1994 (S13) and from 1995 to 1998 (S14). Don't worry about the Japanese models and engines yet.

Will a CRX or Del Sol ever be able to compete with a Mustang in terms of power? Not likely. I mean, you can make a 13-second street car out of a Honda just as easily as you can out of a Mustang, but if you wanna go much farther than that, the Mustang is the obvious choice. However, since you said, "This isn't going to be for any serious racing in competitions or anything, just screwing around with friends from street light to street light", the CRX or Del Sol should suit your needs just fine.

Okay, thanks. Yeah, this isn't going to be for anything serious so it will probably never have to be faster than a 12 second 1/4 mile, and that's the lowest I would probably ever have to go. I doubt I would need it to even be that fast. Anyways, would you still recommend the older model S13 240SX's versus the newer S14's? Are there any major differences besides the exterior? I think I'll probably go with an S13, S14 (If I can find one for under $5K), or a Honda Del Sol. Thanks guys!

You'd be very hard-pressed to find a decent condition S14 for under five thousand, but the S13 is still a perfectly fine car. The S14's slight handling advantage would most likely only become apparent on a race track anyways. The Civic Del Sol works fine too. Whatever you like

Okay, thanks. Just need to find a good priced Del Sol or S13. One final question, is the Del Sol RWD? I can't seem to find the stats for it anywhere. Thanks guys!

That's a very good site... edmunds, and also check out www.kbb.com for another accurate pricing guide and reviews, both quality and they helped me a lot when i was trying to find my used car.

whats all this talk about the 240sx??? seriously, its nothing special until you turbo the KA or drop in a JDM motor...and your talking money in alot of peoples cases. otherwise the car is just an average sporty economy car. not much to talk about in my opinion...

the Z31T is far superior to the 240sx in terms of everything except aftermarket. but with its smaller aftermarket, it can be modded well into the mid 13's VERY easily, under $1500 worth of mods. its about the same quickness as the 5.0 mustang in the 1/4 stock for stock. so whats the deal??? why is this car always shunned away in favor of the 240sx???

240sx - low 16's stock
Z31 N/A - low 16's stock
Z31 Turbo - high 14's stock to low 15's stock

No! Stop it! I had my mind made up! Aw man. Looks like I'm still undecided now. Does anyone else have an opinion on this matter?

Re: Need Help: Narrowed It Down To 5...

isay crx. but hey its your car. think about gas mileage,reliability, and you said something about handling earlier (say what?) so what if its fwd. its not like your going to be putting out so much horsepower that youll have traction problems. plus crxs=cheap as hell.

but then im biased so dont listen to me

While its probably the least practical car on the list, i think the turbo Z is far and away the winner in the coolness and uniqueness factors hands down. But those things may not be meaningful to you.
