    KA24E N/A Build Plan - Need advice

    You can run MAP easily with ITBs if you tap each runner and have a vacuum resevoir. The easiest distributorless ignition to setup is actually the Ford EDIS4 setup. Found on 1990s Ford Escort and others. Possibly Mazda?

    KA24E N/A Build Plan - Need advice

    Waste of time. Sorry. But the KA will never make enough power to make the 240SX fun. Especially a single cam. Easiest, most affordable N/A KA build that will be fun would be to use a 1998-2002 Nissan Frontier DOHC with a L20B EI distributor. Install KA24E flat top pistons and your favorite set of side draft carbs with a custom made manifold (cut down) S13. Carbed DOHC KA with 11.2:1 compression sounds like a good cheap time. I say use the Frontier KA24DE because it does NOT have the distributor driven off the cam like an S13. Instead, it's like older Datsuns and driven off the crank. The L20B distributor will sit right in there fine.

    L20b, Weber 32/36, 93 Octane Timing Help

    Unfortunately people have the stigma of "bigger is better" so they believe higher octane is better... This could also be due to the USA markets calling high octane 'Premium'.

    L20b, Weber 32/36, 93 Octane Timing Help

    Higher octane fuel is a bad idea unless you NEED it. Didn't read the thread, but to educate others I'll spill the truth. There is a huge misconception that high octane = high performance. In reality high performance requires high octane. By definition (in layman's terms) octane is an increment of measurement for volatility of fuel a.k.a "how fast and violent does it burn". Basically the lower the octane the faster and easier the fuel will burn. Higher octane number means how slow it burns. Let's go a step further... Compression, timing and combustion chamber temperatures are most defining of required octane. To put this is very basic logic -- too low of octane and you'll ping. Too high of octane?? Here's the surprise. You'll end up burning a valve due to the slow burning nature of the high octane. The fuel burns too slow and will infact still be burning when exhaust valve opens, causing it to over heat the valve.

    ka24de info

    No it is not the same. The only thing the sohc and dohc share is similar blocks and the name "ka".

    But after all, there's not much to remove from a 1200 lol.

    1700lbs would make that car a blast! Don't get me wrong, I do love the A series. Infact, I also like the E and J series too.

    I get what you're saying, but dollars to dollars, the L will always out perform an A.

    I hate Z's. I owned one once. For about 3 weeks.

    I'm unsure of what the regulations are of the class you're racing, but are engine swaps allowed? A well built L18 would double your whp...

    Not being snarky.... But like my first post, Should go with a different car altogether if winning is the goal. The Datsun provides fun, but you just won't win without deep pockets (and willingness to empty them).

    Not my style, but I appreciate it's unique quirk.
