I got my dohc built with forged internals and stage 2 cams, i just bought a Greddy Ti-C exhaust. i still need to find a new radiator and overflow. also need header down pipe and test pipe. the entire interior got gutted (climate control, back seats and panels, and sound deadning). for now thats all i got.

Anyone from kalamazoo? I've seen a few 240's crusing around, but not many. I'm just getting into them, I picked up a vert this winter, i'm slowly working on fixing it up. It'd be nice to know some local people that have parts =)

My son has a 97 that we are having problems with hub bearings and hubs. The front wheel bearing was bad. We removed the hub and ordered a bearing. the bearing we got was a BCA 510031. This wheel bearing was wrong. The ID is way off. The BCA bearing ID is 1.1811, OD is 2.6772 and the width is 1.7717. We took the hub to a machine shop to remove the old bearing. They broke the hub trying to get the old one out. It appears the old berings dimensions are ID 1.335,OD 2.955 and width is 2.10. These are guesses. I am assuming that the hub has been swapped or ungraded? Anyone have any experience with this? Can we give some more info to you guys to get some help?

I need hub and 2 wheel bearings. We are in the south central MI area...

Thanks!

Yea that's kind of what i said. This dude I know from michigan told me all of these lingo terms. I'm a traveling pipe welder. So yea Michigan has jobs....the whole country/world has jobs. It's a recession proof job. 80-120k easily a year. You can make anywhere from 2-5k a week. No joke. Biggest I've made in a week is about 3k. Average is about 2k a week for me. This is my first year though, so I'm still gaining experience and learning the life. Not to mention fat tax returns because you can claim all the rent, tools, clothes etc. Just depends on how bad you really want to work. Hell some make more than that and take months off. The lifestyle is rewarding yet has its downfalls. Live in shithole hotels most the time to stack even more cash. Being single and no kids is almost ideal (iv heard many horror stories). I just quit the job I was on in Arkansas, was there for 9 months. Probably be in Michigan for 3-4 months depending on if I like it or they start skimping hours. Anything less than 60 hours a week I get into my look for another job mode. I got a rb25 to build damn it!! Give me the cash!

Hey everyone,

My names Jason Schumer. I have been a driver for 2 years now here in Michigan. I drive a 95 240sx that was converted over to a 98 Silvia that I built up over the last few years.

I have competed in The Drift Effect 1 & 2, SLT 2010, MDU 2011, Drift Battle 2010. I recently opened 3S Customs (3S Customs Home) which is dedicated to building drift cars. I then purchased the U.S. Drift franchise here in Michigan and started throwing events last year. I started The Motor City Mayhem Tour in 2011 which is an amateur drifting & time attack championship racing series which has sparked quite a lot of attention, creating an amazing group of new drivers and fans here in Michigan. We have an awesome set of tracks lined up for our 2012 season, our first event is Saturday July 9th 2012 at Dixie Motor Speedway. We recently shut down the streets in Detroit to get people excited for the 2012 racing season, here is what went down.

Here is all the info on the 2012 MCM Tour:

Hope to see some of you guys come out this season.

Michigan!

95 240. Rb25, built (t3/T04E, IT1000, Aem EMS Series 2, Speed density converted, other crap too.). Sleeper? It's three different colors.

Anyhow, once it's rolling, you'll see me from Macomb to Monroe, from Grand Rapids to Windsor. I am a whore. I drive everywhere.

Hahha. Yeah. I figured most Michigan goobers here (me included) are over there on the X too.

I am so ready to have this project driving. Wiring specialties is working on the one off harness this week. Should have it all buttoned up and at least driving in two weeks or so.
