You might have picked up this issue because you either drive an S-chassis car or are trying to get into one. But if you’re new to the game, let’s get a few things out of the way…

While more than ten years old, cars like the Nissan S13 and S14 are hard to knock (unfortunately, the S15 was never offered in the US). It’s a potent rear-wheel drive performance coupe that won’t break the bank. And with a few extra bucks, you can make ‘em faster than your mama’s Lexus.

Badged as the 240SX, they were basically the American brothers of the Japanese Silvia with the exception of the engines. The JDM model got a 2.0-liter turbocharged engine called the SR20DET while us Yanks got a 2.4-liter naturally-aspirated four-cylinder known as the KA24DE. We could spend hours arguing which motor is stronger and has more potential, but in the end many experts agree the SR is a better package. Compared to the KA, it require less money and labor hours to get reliable and solid power—just a few bolt-ons can net you 300+whp. Because of this, SR motors have been hot item for years. To this day finding an affordable engine isn’t hard. So to help you, we compiled a list of the most relevant SR20 bolt-ons available that’ll help you get you the power you want.

BC Cams Giveaway
We confiscated a set of Brian Crower cams from our shoot with Eva but since none of the staff drives an S13/S14, we’re giving it to one of you. So, if you think your SR-swapped Nissan deserves them, send an email to us at superstreet247@gmail.com and tell us why.
