Lucky Labo: 1993 240sx Build Plans

Lucky Labo: 1993 240sx Build Plans

On 2/20/2021 we pulled the engine on the S13 - I have had many inquiries of "Why??" - simple answer; we are planning an in depth rebuild and dialing in the car to Lucky Spec.

The SR20DET engine is in great condition, and will not be rebuilt, but there are some oil leaks that need to be addressed, along with many modifications that will be easier out of the car.

We are building this car with a few goals in mind; Traditional SR20 Build using Stock ECU and tried and true components, a Demo Car for Bomex Aero, our first full build as Lucky Lab, and lastly a 1990's Style Build with simple exterior and interior styling.

No cutting corners, no cheap parts, no e-fans, no drift knobs, no ISR or Mishimoto.

The engine set up is all about Power and Response, with a power goal of between 350-380HP
