Re: Back in the game- Mild Build KA24DE

I appreciate the feedback. Looks like eagle/wiseco is the way to go. Icalled a few local guys here in Florida for prices, just waiting on extra cash to come in.
Motor is apart and awaiting go-fast parts. I would babble more but it sucks surfing the web with the mobile phone.

Back in the game- Mild Build KA24DE

So I'm building another motor for my S13. It's been a while and after a few searches, I've noticed some new products out there. My question is, what's a good rod and piston combo now a days that's cost effective? I've seen some Manley stuff, CX Racing, etc with the rods. And there's a few piston opt...

I think there is a thread in this section. I had talked about this a while back I think also.

I have an extra set I've been wanting to play with. I'll be home tonight and I'll link/reference some material if I can find it.

Re: Hiccup with Enthalpy tune and windshield wiper motor!

Definitely sounds like a ground issue. Try to ground the motor a little better, and also the ECU maybe. Sometimes if you don't screw/bolt the ECU back down well it gives funny things like fuel pump issues and other little gremlins,

Re: Ka24det headgasket options

Multi-Layer Steel (cometic) is only as good as the prep work on your block. If you get the block cut straight with a good smooth surface, and also the head done the same way- then the Cometic (Multi-Layer Steel) will work just fine. I suggest running around your torque sequence on the head in 10 ft/...

Re: 11mm headstuds

Best way I can explain it.... They are only 1mm larger, so if you try to just tap them in, there isn't enough meat to make new threads. You have to basically drill out your block, then tap in a new threaded "sleeve" that will bite into the block, as well as have threads for your new larger studs to ...

This is also because it sounds like it's an internally gated turbo. They don't operate like a normal external gate. They are a little slower to react, in my experience.

Let your motor warm up an extra 2 minutes and you don't have to worry about it. Don't go beating on your car when it's not at operating temperature.

You can bolt a stock fuel rail to an Xcessive manifold from what I remember. So it should be the same as if you were using a stock manifold. And the AMS fuel rail used the larger domestic o-rings/injectors, so whichever injectors you get, you can just get a fatter o-ring to take up the space. Not a ...
