actually that 2000 would be a good gain in HP. And the all encompassing debate on the SR vs Ka is kinda rediculous but i would rather have a KA than the SR any day of the week. well, maybe not tuesday. i hate tuesday. it can have the SR.313ryans said:What is the benefit of adding a $2000+ dollar turbo kit to the KA (which most likely already has at least 100,000 miles) over spending similar money to buy an engine swap with potentially greater hp gain?
Well... Heres the run down... A SR clip will run you around $2200 - $2700... Now Install is mostly around $1000... Now what do you get for $3200 - $3700? A completely stock SR that has 205 fly wheel HP bout 185-190 WHP maybe... For maybe about $4000 you can rebuild the KA with forged Internals and the Turbo kit... You can push out about 300WHP... There are benefits to the SR just like the KA... I just like how KAs are abundant and cheap to find... You try and find a SR motor (just the Motor) for less than $700...313ryans said:What is the benefit of adding a $2000+ dollar turbo kit to the KA (which most likely already has at least 100,000 miles) over spending similar money to buy an engine swap with potentially greater hp gain?
I'd say KA24DET over SR. SS Autochrome makes T70 kits for the KA for like $700. If I had a dual cam I'd do it... But all I have is a VQ35DE.... Poor me. I'll guess I'll just have to stick with 245 variable-valve timed brake horsepower....engine#9 said:If you're gonna get an Sr you should get it from a reputable company, Heavy throttle, Venus auto etc. I chose Ka-t simply because i like the KA and the avaliability of relacement parts.
He's got a fast Rabbit? Hell yeah! Post some pics! And yeah, I've been beat by some Volkswagens... But our Porsche hasn't. Rick the Garage Guru raced the Porsche at Laguna Seca with a 914 Owner's Club. I'm just saying I drive a 180SX, and cars like BMW's and Porsche's are in a whole different league... But hell, no trash talkin' intended. I'd love to check out the Rabbit! Post some pics! Is there a CarDomain page for it?Kelso said:come down to florida and race my brothers rabbit why dont you? ever been beat by a 20 year old volkswagon...im sure he could put you in your place. now quit trash talkin the members :lame:
