Whats up guys, I just bought a '90 240 and I have some money left over (not a lot) to buy and engine for it because the KA in it is pretty much shot, burning oil and running like sh** and I'm trying to decide between swapping in a CA-DET or just buying another KA and running maybe 10-15 psi (a little later on). I don't really have the time for a rebuild or the money for an SR swap and I kinda want to do something thats not seen as often anyway. So between the KA and the CA what do you guys think?

If you want something different and you seem to be leaning in that direction, then go for a CA18DET. It bolts up with no problem. You can use either the KA M/T or the CA M/T. Just make sure to use an M/T driveshaft. The CA wiring is similar to the SR wiring.

Good luck on you venture.

i say CA. a lot of people over look it, and its a strong and reliable motor as long as you take care of it.

Well, I ended up just getting a KA because there was one close by with decent mileage (~160K ) and I got it for $450. I wanted to do the CA but i couldn't really find one for a decent price or without the transmission coming with it so I guess I'm keeping it USDM for now. But anyways, thanks for the advice guys.

KA all the way do a nice rebuild on the old motor throw a turbo on it and save about 2 grand over doing a swap...KA-t.org for all your KA-t information
