Anybody know of any performance parts for a carburated NapsZ24 engine? Will a KA24E head bolt right up? Can I use high compression pistons, Webers, cams, or valves from a Nissan 240Z? Also does anybody know of any short shift kits for the manual 5 speed tranny?

I used to have an 88 NAPZ, I think I found a header for it. I boubt KA stuff would fit(do you have the dual spark plug head?). I think you can go carb and get some decent power out of it. I have never seen Short Shift kits, but you may be able to make something. High comp pistons, i dont see why not. Cams, They are availible. I have a Nissan Motorsports book(not NISMO) and I think there is some stuff in there for it. If you want I can post what they have.

Thanks PatScottAKA99XE it would be great help if you post it. I have the single spark plug engine. I was thinking about some other swaps but need help deciding which will be able to be done. Here are some:

1. L18 head on a KA24 block
2. SR20DET engine
3. VG30
4. VG30TT
5. KA24E with the 16 valve head DOHC
6. RB26DETT

problems with each swap are the following:

1. I know the l18 head and KA24 block will fit but what kind of management should I use? A brand new ECU perhaps?

2. Will the SR20DET work well when I engage 4WD? How will I program it to work with my gear case?

3. I know ithe VG30 fits but not a huge increase in power.

4. VG30TT will fit but engine management is an issue as well as cost for the engine itself. Also have to change the tranny.

5. The KA24E doesn't seem to have any problems with the swap except getting the computer to work with my truck.

6. The RB26DETT will cost too much and needs new axles, diferencials, tranny, etc etc etc....

So please help me out.
