7.3 Second 240sx

From The Owner

I bought this car about 8 or 9 years ago from the original owner who had broken the tranny and did not want the car anymore. I paid $300 bucks for the car. I was really lucky because is a clean title 95 240sx se. The car only had the original motor but no tranny, which I did not care because I had planned to put in a 1jz swap anyway.

My Friends from South Florida Turbo & Engine had given me a ride in an s13 they had swapped in a 1jz auto with nitrous. Car ran 10s in quarter with ease.That was the moment I decided to build a 240sx. The car currently has a custom SFT&E 3.2 stroker in it with a custom billet true 76mm from Works Turbo. Also have a stage 5 Powerglide built by ATF out of Davie Florida. I am still running the Haltech Sport 2000 tuned by Jordon from Megasquirt tuning. All of my fab work was done by Freston Mac from 2 Brothers Fab Work. Paint and body was done by South Florida Custom and Paint (SFC). These guys did a killer job on my car with my s15 conversion and by deleting my sunroof.

All I wanted was an 11sec car to run around the streets in. When I took the car to the track for the first time I ran a 10.8 and was instantly hooked. After running a best time of 10.00. I decided to tear the car down and start adding. I went with a custom 1.5jz from SFT&E. I also went with a powerglide from ATF in Davie as well as a Haltech Sport 2000, a 76mm turbo from Works Turbochargers. Car ran a best time of 8.1 @ 172mph before it kicked an eagle rod out the block.I spoke with my friend Chris Gore from SFT&E and told him I wanted the car to run in the 7 sec. zone. Thats when he said that he was going to build me one of his SFT&E custom 3.2 stoker Engines. Then my buddy Steven Wright donated one his custom Afco shocks and springs he built himself which help propel my car into the 1.1 60ft times. The rest is history.

As far as my goals go, I wanted to run a 7.50 in my car and in 2016 at WCF I ran a best time of 7.32 @187 which gave a new record in the street fighter class and also gave the title of the world quickest outlaw 240. Also worlds fastest 240 on a 76mm turbo. My next goal is to keep moving forward and try to be the first import to run a 6sec time on Drag Radials as an IRS car. I dont think thats been done just yet.


I would like thank Chris Gore from SFT&E for a bad ass motor and all the parts I have borrowed and never gave back lol. My Tuner Jordon Tuchband from Megasquirt. Jason @ ATF for building one bad ass Tranny. Neal from South Florida Customs for the bad ass paint job. Marlon Orellana Jerson (White Pearl) Freston Mack Ferrea racing components Reed Patridge Frank Rehak Haltach USA Andrew @ Boostin Photography, Stephan @ STP Motorsports for all those late nights on the dyno. My brother from another mother Casper. My son Kenny Leal for all the help, my wife Cindy B. Leal for putting up with me and my daughter Janessa Leal for always believing in her daddy.
