KAT reliability

Post by marsworld » Wed Oct 15, 2014 2:34 pm

Turns out my KA-T is reliable. I drove my 439hp S14 this past weekend from norcal to socal to attend FD Irwindale and hit the streets a little with some socal homies :D
How reliable is your KA-T?

11 years as a daily driver before the (stock) head gasket went. The head gasket failed because the fuel pump wiring detiorated and I ran lean.

its reliable as in id take it on a long trip without thinking about it. but **** always breaks, thats the nature of track/street cars and wound out lil motors in old cars.
