Default 5seven5 hardbody project

Sup everyone im rueben im new to forum and hardbody's ive always wanted one and finally came across a 95 d21 and excited about this project.. ive always been a honda guy and happy to change it up a little

Pics I took when previous owner still had it



Brought it home in june was told I needed some wiring done which was wrong I found a huge crack in the head causing coolant to go down into oil pan



Decided to throw in this ka24e out of a 90 240sx which was rebuilt not too long ago



Since new mexico doesnt have emissions I eliminated all emissions crap


At the time I also decided to order 4" blocks and also redrilled front hanger and removed bumpstops for rear.. up front I cranked down torsions and removed bumpstops.. sits ok but I do want more low :-/ which will have to wait till i can afford air ive also been piecing and IRS rear from a 240 which I would love to put on too





Here's where I have stopped for now till my motor mounts come in and ill be able to start driving this baby


I know its no where as clean out nice as alot of harbodys on here but one day ill get there lol

Thanls for looking and I hope to post more progress as I get more done

Sweet project, guess for my clarification. Is the 240 motor installed, the front looks like it has a motor in it but maybe not. I did see where you were waiting for the motor mounts to come in. I didn't think the 240 motor would bolt in due to clearance issues with the oil pain but I could be wrong.
