Re: KA24DE Bottom End Modifications

The $2000 quote was for cnc billet aluminum rods. Figured that if I was going for high revs, might as well have less rotating mass for increased response on the "smaller" engine.

Re: KA24DE Bottom End Modifications

I was SERIOUSLY considering a "destroked" motor, however the complications and ultimate cost led me in the direction of the L/Z20/KA hybrid. The reason... Destroying the ka is also going to decrease the displacement. In my eyes the ONLY benefit of using the ka block is that you can use super long ro...

Re: KA24DE Bottom End Modifications

I linked a bunch of info about these modifications in the last few pages of my build thread. Check it out, it may be helpful. I'd like to see someone stateside do this. I was going to do it but like other people have said, the cost to benefit ration is very high and not on the good end.

Re: CA18ET exhaust manifold on KA24E...

This project has been mothballed. I'm getting my head soon and want something matched to the caliber of the cylinder head. It is possible to do but nothing lines up to the point of having to drill 1-1/2" holes at an angle, two separate angles per pair. To those that attempt this before I actually do...

Okay, after a bunch of measurements... I've come to the conclusion that it is definitely possible and worth the work in my eyes. I have to get some 1/2" mild steel plate and make the flanges.

Another part i think we'd all enjoy the benefits of would be a individual throttle body plate that would sandwich between the head and intake manifold. Similar to the gti-r's. I'd skip the single cam in favor of increased popularity and demand for dohc.... Even though I'd love one! I imagine a desig...
