I've heard that the KA24DET is a really good engine, but I'm a JDM freak, so no USDM engine can provide the thrill of custom CA18, SR20, or RB work. KA24DET would be a fun project though. At Advanced Auto here in Duluth, there's a KA24DET that's not modded except for T-25 and big FMIC and it puts down 14.7 in the quarter mile with VLSD. These aren't numbers that I'd go for... My CA might be faster with my open diff, and my Alti destroys that. SR20 might be a better engine, methinks.azRPS13 said:I agree with Joel.... Is it a stock SR? Is it a built KA? Is it a stock KA with a turbo slapped on? What turbo? How much boost? be more specific.
there are 400 whp ka's with forged pistons and stock rods, oem bottom end. for the amount of money it takes to get the sr20 in the 240 you can have a 350 to 400 whp car with the ka.kaptainkrollio said:Stock KA put outs 140 or 155. Your run of the mill stage 1 turbo kit will put around 220whp where as a stock sr20 would do maybe 170whp. The torque curve on a KA-T is also a lot more linear than an SR and would probably cost you less to do than a stock sr20 swap. The KA is also good for over 400whp but just make sre that the bottem end is built so that you don't have any problems.
