ok... i just got a brand new 1990 240sx and was wondering what it takes to do a s14 front end conversion... do i just get the s14 fenders and hood and bumper and the bolt right up?... or how does it work?... or do i have to get a whole new front clip?... thanks
the s13.5 is the s13 to s15 conv. the conversion normally involves feders, bumper, radiator support, and headlights. i have seen them done on cars but what you will pay for teh parts you might as well go buy an s14. last time i checked the s13.5 conversion was about 2800 for the kit. now this is a body job so keep in mind that you better either have a straight eye, or measure you gaps and clearences before disassembling your from end. this is a job that i probally would not tackle if you have novice experience, i get a lil uneasy with things like this and i have almost 10 years experience working with cars. but yeah if you want go for it, maybe you can find an s14 at a junk yard that has been rear ended and you might be able to get the front clip for cheap. do some research and good luck. i'm out.
thanks man... well see i bought the car for 600$ with a ****ed up front end... the previous owner had rearended someone... so i need a whole new radiator support and head lights and bumper and one fender atleast... so im open to ideas but i would definatly like to save some cash...if i could
If you've got an s13, why just get the JDM s13 front end??? Thats 10x easier to bolt up and install than doing an s15 conversion, plus you know that the OEM pieces are going to fit.
No offense, but doing an s15 front end on an s13 should use only the best parts (Masa fenders, OEM lights/hood etc etc etc) Skipping on those parts will only cost you more in the end with fitment labor and etc etc...

what he's looking for is an S14 conversion on his S13, check out www.raceonusa.com they have done this several times, it involves conversion fenders, oem headlights, bumper, core support (preferably), and hood for the S14.
this conversion is called an S13.4 conversion.

Hey, I've got a 1990 240 and a 1995, the 1990 has a SR20, i got her from a good friend for my first car. One damn good friend haha, but Im intrested in converting one of them with a s15 front end. Is it easier to convert the 1995, or do they both consist of money and time and fab?
