I searched a lot on the web and i did not found much info about CA18DET internals, as i understood the stock internalscan hold sowere betwen 300HP and 400HP

as i also understood if u aim high power from a CA18DET engine
first step is ti incrase his capcaiti from 1809cmc to about 2000cmc

but in this case what pistons... (internals) u will have to use, from were this internals can be bought this days

if, u have any ideeas u can write them here, about how to built a high power engine from the CA18DET (i know i can do a swap with a RB26DETT.... but thisi snot the ideea of the post), i want to make a scatch of a high power CA18DET

i have a CA18DET engine (except the one that runs on my car) i was lucky to found one (the turbo was mising) and i want to turn him in parts and rebuilt it form 0 with the aim to get as much power as posible

anyway, i have the whole time in the world, i have some mechanical skils, not so much money, and i want to start by miself to built that engine

any help will be apreciated.

Head studs

I've read that even with reinforced head studs and stronger head gaskets, the CA head can warp at 400 hp. SR20 might be a better powerplant if you want over that much, but a CA is good enough for some.
