Unhappy Is the motor the same in a pickup as a 240sx? KA24

Is the motor from a 240 sx the same as a 1997 hardbody? I'm trying to buy parts to trick out my truck and I want to know if the same performance parts would work - especially a turbocharger and exhaust. Does anyone know if they are basically the same (header size, displacement, etc...)? If not, can you point me in the direction of a website that has performance stuff for my truck?

It's the same engine as the '89'-'90 240SX. The '91 and above has the dual-cam version of the truck's engine.

If you're looking for engine parts from a 240, look at '89s and '90s.

The hardbody used TBI on its KA24. Didn't the early 240sx use multi-port injection?

No, the trucks had MPI.

Hence the 'E' in the KA24E code.

If you are lookin to boost the ka in your truck, you will want to do a 240 intake swap. It will be far easier to plumb up the turbo that way. I have asked numerous times on numerous forums how to perform the swap, but i get the same dumb ass response from uppity mother fucker forum users..."search". Searching yeilds no results. anybody who says "search" as a response SHOULD BE KILLED.

Perhaps when posting you should state that you HAVE searched already in your first post. TONS of people post the same damn questions all the time on forums, is it really that tough to learn to use a search feature? Sheesh.
