  • Anyone have a Carputer in a 240SX?

    Anyone out there have a fully installed carputer in a Nissan 240SX. Id like to see someone elses install to get some ideas. Im curious about where to mount the LCD and headunit. Pistures or websites would be nice. Thanks

    No need for a headunit

    But look at other installs and see if you like their location and copy it

          Is that the American Version of the Nissan 200SX (S14a)?

          If so I will hopefully have my carputer installed in my new 200SX in the next few weeks...

              his 91 240sx is the american version of the japanese 180sx (s13). in uk (and optionally for a while in japan) it came with a 2.0l engine (200sx). 89-93 was s13, and 96-98 was the s14.

              only difference is in the engine:
              180sx = 1.8l ca18det
              200sx = 2.0l sr20det
              240sx = 2.4l ka24de

              no turbo in america.

              i used to have an s13 until i blew the engine.

                    That was Nissan's biggest mistake...Selling the S15 here would rock thier sales. I like the Skyline, but I like the Silvia better.

                        Both a great cars. Can't say the same about the rest of Nissan's lineup... they have like what? 4 SUVs now?

                            Well the 240SX runs in the family I guess. My dad has the '94 240SX convertible(automatic) while mine is a '91 hatchback(standard shift)...I'm really amazed by this car though. Over 175,000 miles and Never had engine trouble! I love the way they handle, you are so close to the ground its like being in a go-kart. The engine is an inline 4 cylinder(I think its DOHC), and rear wheel drive. Not to many rear wheel drive imports out there anymore....and this thing has tons of torque!. Once had it up to 105mph and the rpm's were only at 4k...it wanted to go faster! With it being a '91 it looks like crap, but it is still reliable and starts every morning.

                            LCD wise...the hole is a double din. So Im thinking of moving the headunit to bottom of the din, and install an in-dash pull out LCD in the top bay of the din. This will allow the LCD display to be higher and above my gear shifter, as well as the ability to swivel...so the passenger can turn the creen towards them.
                            So now Im in search for a 7" In-Dash, VGA/LCD Touch screen...without a tv-tuner, just the basic model with VGA plugin.
