Hey guys wanted to show off this sweet piece I know every KA guy could use. Me and my cuz started a machining company and are making several parts. Selling these exclusively through O&J Performance, give him a call if your interested. Anyways not gonna turn this into a for sale post...this thing helped me out though cause my MC was setting right against the turbo. Saved me about 10lbs too. I ran a prop valve as well and the brakes work flawlessly. Anyways here are some pics....I'll be posting dyno results and graph when I get back Friday the 19th. See ya soon!!!

Just 3 days away from my tune date over at RLZ Engineering! Picked up a little special sauce...maybe some records will bet set for a SOHC street car. Again goals are 500hp on pump and 600hp on race gas. I made 400hp@12lbs last time. Wish me luck!!

Yeah new number once I got a new job about 3 years ago. Still have the car but I had to put things on hold for a while because I bought a house and got married. I got the car running a few months ago, and was working on somethings, went ot start it and nothing happened. Checked a few things and found out my fuel pump died and the gas tank needs to be cleaned. So just waiting on a chance to clean the tank and install a new pump. Then it will be running again.

I was working in your area the other day, at NCRC.

Ok, so it's been a frustrating day...basically we put the boost down to 10lbs today. Car made well over 400hp and 450ft lbs of torque as we got into the 20lb range with boost solenoid issues. Cannot get it to cooperate...plumbing is right, solenoid clicks turns on and off but will not regulate boost. With a Manuel Controller Howard told me to run 15lbs. So to get to the point, clutch couldn't hold 400+ with a competition stage 5 clutch so didn't get to make any pulls on race gas. Need a Twin Disc Clutch or do you guys have any better suggestions??....Taking a vote and need advice so PLEASE comment. Do I finish paint and body and drive the car and save for a clutch or wait and go back to make final numbers then paint???? I'm torn :cry:

Well it depends whats your budged and how much you want to spend.
If you can just buy a twin disk deff go for it.

I'm on white bunny 6 puck. 608 whp and it holds. That would be the cheaper alternative. A lot cheaper.

Now is that the z33 clutch disc? Only question I have is will it work with me z32 trans kit...I'm thinking RB20 flywheel w/ stage 5 z33 disc...isn't the z33 like 250mm disc. How much would that hold. Thing is next visit to the dyno I want to be finished. Keep having stupid little problems.

How much torque did you make, been reading up and just found out competition clutch sales this as a kit with a 6 puck disc...question is do they make a higher pressure plate too? This would save me boo koos of money :D

I made 520ish tq, cant remember of the top of my head, but it was around there.

Its a z32 clutch. It worked with my KA trans, ripped the gears. Now I have a z32 trans in there and it still works with that as well.

But I have not tested out on that power hard launches on the track with slicks. I will be testing it out this summer sometime.

So looks like the Stage 5 350Z Clutch is good for 600ft lbs to the wheels, based off there website. I think Im going to go with that. The stage 5 I have in there right now is rated at 300.....FAIL!!!

Yea, I'm working on figuring out this boost solenoid today. If I can get those 2 things fixed the car will deff put down 600 on race gas. We can get real close to 500 on pump. I'm driving around now with 350 and its stupid! Crazy thing is this cam, KA's from what I've seen start to taper off at 7000rpm...my curve never stops goin up. Howard said if he could spin it to the moon it would keep making power!

So after tinkering with the solenoid Infinally got it to work and successfully manage my boost levels!!! Thank God! So as of now I need a clutch for more power. Once the solenoid was fixed made 5 hard pulls and the car started spitting. Pulled the plugs and they were black and fouled. I am running NGK bkr7e plugs at .025 gap. Since I have LS1 coils should I go bigger? Heard some guys run there's in the .030 range with those coils. Would really like some high HP guys to chime in here. What's your gap? I'm also going to try indexing the plugs.

So after some aggrivation I figured out my rich problem...AEMs new map sensor has a very cheap connector and the pins do not lock in. After data logging I found the sensor wasn't reading and the ecu was going into limp mode to save the motor. I fixed the wiring into the connector so it will no longer come out. Should have no more issues, car pulls hard now on 15 lbs. I sold my type x kit and I'm going a different route. I'll be starting body work soon, and will return to the dyno after. Trying to get this car on the road so I can enjoy it some this summer. In the mean time here's a night time antilag video.

Looks like I'm gonna be running the white bunny setup. I'll be using a stage 5 350Z clutch. They are supposed to be good for 600ft lbs of torque.

Re: Project KA24E(T)!!! Running Great, Now Body Work.

Post by KA24ETZTM » Wed Jul 10, 2013 10:26 pm

So figure I would post up a couple pics...been doing body work and getting things prepped. Took me a while to find some decent fenders and a doors but Things are coming together. Going a different route than before. Actually painting the car back to it original KH3 "Super Black". Going Chuki front with a superb set of Canadian DRL's I put yellow tint on...JDM turns and Kouki Type X Tails.

Also going to use a naca duct from a 280zx for the hood, modifying it a bit though and lots of carbon fiber. Car should look pretty MEAN :angry-teeth: Also got the upgraded clutch setup with forged flywheel and stage 5 350z clutch I was told by Comp Clutch I would be good for 650ft lbs to the wheels so I should have no more clutch issues on the dyno. I'll be going back after she's painted and on the road. Here's some updated pics, a antilag video, and a close idea of what the car should look like minus wheels and the DRLs...Enjoy and please comment!

More progress has been made on this quarter, it's been sanded and dents fixed and filled...I'll update some more pics soon
Image

Canadian DRL's I put Yellow tint on and added some yellow nokya 27w bulbs, these lights go in place of the plastic grilles on the chuki bumpers, also got some jdm turns.
Image

Very close to what the car will look like minus wheels and my personal touches but you get the point...btw if anyone has a xenon lip they wanna sell on the cheap lmk :)

Thanks guys, glad your enjoying it....I am not enjoying this quarter panel right now having to fix someone else's mess has been aggravating. Hopefully I'll have some good pics this weekend. I'll be spending a solid entire day Saturday on the body work.
