In 1984, the 200SX came in three flavors: the 2.0-liter SOHC CA20E with 102-horsepower, the 1.8-liter turbocharged, non-intercooled SOHC CA18ET with 120 horsepower, and the 3.0-liter VG30E SOHC V6 with 153 horsepower, available in 1987. This CA18ET-powered S12 features custom breathing and a new head, plus the buyer's choice of three turbo setups. It currently runs a Chinese-built T25 set at 8psi, culminating for at least 150 horsepower, adequate for a 2,600-pound hatch.
New sensors, belts, fluids, alternator, and battery promise many more pizza delivery runs. Customers will liken the wrapped driver's side mirror to Michael Jackson's bedazzled glove, but may ask what purpose ventilated taillights serve. What, those things? Well they're not part of a custom cabin ventilation that doubles as a subliminal marketing ploy for tailgaters, that's for sure. Nope. Not a chance.
PhiLOL actually likes the tuna here, but abhors structural rust. Save the manuals.
