Boosted Ride of the Month: December - Sijin Varghese's 1997 Nissan 240SX

Name: Sijin Varghese
Location: Indianapolis, IN
Vehicle: 1997 Nissan 240SX
Turbo: Precision ball bearing Pro Mod 94 CEA turbocharger
Purchased From: Sound Performance in Bensenville, IL

Nissan’s S-chassis has long been a favorite platform for the drifting, road racing and autocross crowds. When it comes to making straight up raw power, though, the original US-spec KA24 motor is typically swapped in favor of either Nissan’s SR or RB motor. Sijin Varghese wanted something a little more unusual that would help him achieve his power goals: opting instead for a Toyota 2JZ-GTE 6-cylinder powerplant, Varghese’s 1997 Nissan 240SX was guaranteed to be able to handle tremendous boost.

With a Precision dual ball bearing Pro Mod 94 CEA turbocharger selected to handle the boosting honors, Varghese amped up his high-compression 10:1 Sound Performance built 2JZ motor’s turbo system with SP’s 3.4L stroker kit, SP’s Pro Mod “Twister” turbo manifold, SP’s menacing 5” aluminum fender-exit exhaust, as well as twin wastegates and blow-off valves along with a SP Monster 6” race intercooler.

Additional upgrades include a Hypertune race intake manifold with Hypertune 102mm throttle body, a SP 16-volt electrical system conversion, GSC S3 290° cams, a race port and polish job on the head, ProEFI Pro128 standalone ECU and a ProEFI ethanol flex fuel system for when Varghese decides to run E98 fuel.

Used mostly for racing and fun, you can also catch Varghese’s legendary “Lambo Killer” S14 on the dyno putting down seriously impressive numbers. At 44 PSI, the car made 1,405 RWHP and you can see a video of the pull at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=srTo5dIGNto.
