Re: S14 ka24de chain kit + front cover/oil pump recommendati

I didn't total anything up because of how many things I've got going on at once but I know after the timing parts, ARP studs, clutch/fw, and fluids I'm up near or over the $1k mark.
I've got a 5 speed swap, engine rebuild, and suspension overhaul going on all at the same time.

Re: S14 ka24de chain kit + front cover/oil pump recommendati

I'm in the process of an engine rebuild in the daily and unfortunately for my bank account I went with OEM parts as well.

I also went with all ARP hardware so I don't have to do worry about anything if I wake up one day and bolt turbo bits to it like it's a great idea.

Re: 240sx build need guidance.

I'm leaving my head alone but have a lot of parts similar to your list now. I'm going to port my stock intake manifold instead of messing with the Xcessive Unit and spending that money elsewhere.

Re: My KA Machining/Build Thread *Opinions welcomed*

I just noticed that your drain bung that you welded into the pan was parallel with the lip of the pan. The engine sitting at an angle in the bay means that now the oil has to drain down and slightly back up to get out of your drain line. That could cause some issues for you in the future. If you've ...

Re: What valvetrain is everyone using?

I guess I'm gonna put the +$400 towards an ATI Super Damper for the time being since I'm going to be doing startup, break-in, and the first tune with a 240/248 setup.

I need to get this build finished already but I know rushing things won't do me any good.

Re: What is the correct way to modify my car?

I always do suspension first.

Start out on your stock wheels and use decent tires up front if you can. I wouldn't over inflate the tires. An even contact patch will help you learn control better and your tires will most likely last longer. Longer lasting tires means more time in the seat.

Re: What is the correct way to modify my car?

Stock KA cars shred at the track all day on drift days. Some of the people at our local events have been NA KA for more than 2 years now and some still out-do the guys with power. Best I can say is upgrade exhaust to either a 2.5" or 3" catback and get more seat time at the drift events before you t...

What valvetrain is everyone using?

Almost finished piecing together my build and was just curious what valvetrain everyone was using these days. I remember Matt Powers was using B18 valve springs at one time and have heard that CA18 and VG30's use the same spring as the KA does but I'm curious what everyone is actually using and havi...

Sounds like a little v8, especially during downshifts and engine braking. I'll be hanging it up until I finish my turbo build though. I've got a 2.5" Magnaflow muffler that I'm about to make a new exhaust setup with.
