Thats a fine example of an s12 you have there. It'll be nice to see the ca18de in there
Thank you, the ca18det swap is definitely going to happen!

First update of the 2019 season!









Sourced and fitted a fj20 bonnet, It was originally red and it was also crashed but it doesn't look too bad after a few smacks with hammer, some bondo, some sanding, some more bondo, some more sanding and so on... (sadly can't find the pictures of how it looked when I bought it) Well, instead of trying to match the white colour of the car I just plastidipped it black, it's temporary - the car will get a full proffessional respray eventually. I also had a reproduction of the bonnet decal printed and I think it looks great! getting the shape of the sticker right wasn't easy but my wife is a graphics designer so it turned out alright on the first try, sticking it on was also easier than I thought, I had an extra decal made if I messed up but in the end didn't need to use it. I'll upload all the different versions of the bonnet decal here on the forum soon so anyone can have them made - just as I did with the rear decals.





Also fitted a Depo Racing boost gauge, and deleted the factory pop-off valve because my plan is to up the boost a bit. Anyway, now I know for sure that my stock turbo settup is making 0.5 Bar. I also converted the engine to use the later style serpentine belts becuase something was wrong with the original pulleys and the alternator v-belt kept getting destroyed. What I used was s13 ca18det, water pump pulley, ca18det alternator (10 more amps yaaay!), s13 ca18det power steering pump (had to use the return line fitting from the s12 pump) and mk2 s12 ca18 crank pulley. I originally wanted to use the s13 pulleys on the s12 alternator and ps pump but the pulleys wouldn't  just bolt on, seems to work alright so far. I forgot to take a picture of that but it's not that interesting, it just looks like a mk2 setup now...

Build Projects / Beams 3SGE S14 240SX
« Last post by David B on 10:13:42 PM / 17-Mar-19  »
Hmm






240SX S14, 250k miles, got her off a trade from my old sr20 S13 a couple years ago. had a bad head gasket, replaced the head, had timing guide failures, removed and replaced, radiator crapped, heater core crapped, and then 50k later low oil pressure on startup is becoming worse and I'm just tired of working for a stock KA.

i own two 1jz cars already for track use and this is my constant daily driver, engine options came to mind and even a replacement KA but since i don't see the point of rebuilding / removing from car and having down time. i don't need a 1jz to daily, nor an sr20, and the cost is quite high and I'm sort of a cheap ass, and KA's are getting pricey wtf!

so anyways, stopped by the importer and i had two cheap choices. NA Sr20DE 1000$ or Beams 3sge 900$. I picked the beams it has always been somewhat of a mystery to me and since its a yamaha inspired motor i figured it would be worth a good stab.


here she is on the stand @ work in November, i quickly ordered a celica intake, a maf, and an altezza DP from eBay and stuff after some research. i did replace t belt, various gaskets, removed pan, removed manifolds, cleaned valves, thermostat, crank seals, most of the obvious stuff you do like spark plugs etc.





i went into the parts department and ordered a 22R pickup clutch disk and slapped it onto the stock flywheel and Plate. looks good lets swing it 80$ there is two part #'s i think i got the older model, idk roll the dice.






got in contact with Xcessive after hearing about S13 mount brackets for 240sx. waited a few months and yay i ended up with brackets and mount. DONT WASTE YOUR TIME WITH MOUNTS MAKE YOUR OWN I HAD TO MODIFY THESE!!! the brackets were, MEH too, they need to work on the design but it motivated me at the time to do the swap. the transmission mount bracket is a modified 1jz bracket all holes slotted to accommodate the j160 rubber stock mount. it worked

i removed the pictures because I'm too lazy to resize that BS, its 2019 jeez.



cheap fuel solution to retain my stock lines. WIX 58 psi amazon fuel regulator. don't cheap out on this part the cheap ones can fail. this runs my motor but fuel pressure is supposed to be 64 psi soo00, maybe just run a regulator and return. the rail has 3 ports luckily




wiring info courtesy of kyle turnage , for torque pro and 02 sensor. also ecu pinout does exist.






like the 1jz, i came across having to power up some extra crap off these plugs, like the MAF COILS INJECTORS and Alt. sensor wire to get charge working. this is on top of wiring those right hand side pins to power ecu like 1jz



tire ole ka


Beams, and my sweet toolbox. awaiting install



Corolla AE86 Koyo Beams swap radiator .. yea boi this puts the coolant hoses on the drivers side and has a fan switch bung, and is cake to install. modify lower rad bracket by enlarging holes. i just blindly say fuck it and order shit. also ordered a GS300 ECU box to run ecu in bay as designed originally.




commence swap on my 3 day weekend off. i spend roughly 30 hours figuring shit out and fitting here in and walla, she runs. and no thanks to the excessively over designed mount kit which threw me through a hurdle, but hey sometimes you got to be the test bunny. i think the "s13" kit is perfected. dunno why s14 had to be "angled" different cause that was fucked.














yea this shifter fits really good. yay





subframe fitment pix









fuel




PS lines direct bolt in!!! used 240 banjo bolt i believe too


bye bye

yes the J160 6 speed stock beams trans is a W58 21 spline yoke! about 51 3/8ths inches long but do your own measurements. shaft masters aluminum was 380$ shipped.




corolla rad and corolla fans


YES i had to modify 1 bank around the steering shaft. not so bad.













wired in some relays that are activated off something off the lower harness. i chopped my ka harness to retain the f3 plug and essentials like oil pressure, start switch, and wipers. key on power source has to also work while cranking. found the power source somewhere on the side of the fuse box

also install mishimoto fan controller using the a/c fan relay plug as a power source for turn on there is constant 12 volts or key on whichever you prefer, i have constant 12 volts so my fan runs after shutting off till cool







honeycomb mod air straightener, beams are picky motors.





cleaned a bit



checked fuel pressure

thats it for now. more to come . maybe. my fingers are sore but hopefully someone will get inspired. a major point of this swap was to share it with you guys as an under 3000$ swap all parts included. highly doable and turbo / its / charge capable. iron block, 8k rpms, titanium valves, 6 speed, timing belt, Toyota yay

I've decided I'm going to do the rest as weekly Friday posts because I'm terminally lazy and can't be bothered to do another post dump.

September passed, and waiting on parts, so did October. Finally, in November, I got the engine into the car. This took some effort, and more help from my dad, but finally, I had a CA in my S13, perched proudly on Nismo motor mounts.








(Check out how much room there is in front of that tiny CA18)


Of course, somehow my driveshaft was too long. The car doesn't have ABS, so there should have been a solid inch of slip yoke, but nothing. So, I put a 1-piece shaft on order.




Fitting continued through November as work allowed.






I even managed to get the hatch working after a botched attempt at replacing the hatch struts in 2013 ended in the captive nut for the passenger side strut ball, snapping out of its spot weld and rolling away.




And so, in December, I towed the car to the local vintage Nissan guru, Tay Man, to have an intake made up, the intercooler finally mounted, and finally start the car.


















But the car wouldn't start. It would crank and crank, but never fire. Ignition, fuel, timing, and ECU were all checked, and all fine. But starting eluded the little engine, which had cost thousands already. I left the car at the shop, for Tay to figure out why it wouldn't start. And so 2016 came to a close, my project on hold in somebody else's driveway.

My hatch area currently holds my battery.   I wonder if someone has a hatch cover ?  I’d prefer black.  Does any one have an unneeded cover they can sell reasonably ??  Hit me up I’m in sw michigan

I never had Facebook.  But I joined the Clubs12 on Facebook.  I only joined for Club s12.  This forum has helped me and countless others keeping there S12s on the road. Seems the club s12 group is fairly active on Facebook. While the original site it great I believe things have just evolved some??  I still hop on this sight it is an incredible source for info and ideas.  Long live the S12’s and those who keep em going!  Peace
