    ls1 is a cool swap but you cant beat the price and ease of a sr20 swap. You can literally do the swap with 2500 bucks. ls1 swap would be 2500 for just the engine and trans. Then you need about 3-5k more for other parts and work depending on what you can and cant do.

    Just be careful with the rb, do alot of research on the swap. I have yet to see one go into a 240 without issues.

    I cant see the car as im at work but when it comes to 240s everyone knows to look at the frame rails. 70% of 240s these days have rusted out frame rails.. Find a car that has all the body panels in good shape, interior in decent shape no to little rust. Doesnt need to have a engine or tranny, just a good solid rust free shell.
