200sx's unite!!!!!!!!

Recommended Posts

Dont feel like using the crappy ebay shorty header but looking for that last ounce of power?

 

Nissan competition/ dp racing header fits s10 200sx's with just a little massaging of one of the tubes to get around the steering box, just a bit of a dent in. Griping about dents? Watch the youtube episode on engine masters where they destroy a set of headers.

 

The port size on the ebay/top end performance header is a joke, barely fits my thumb through the flange but the real header is built for ported heads.

 

I expect a 10-15 hp gain from this swap.

The only downside is that its a cunt to get in, i ended up unbolting the motor mounts jacking up the motor and shoving it over to snake it in.

The intake ports are stained blue from race gas and av gas.

That headers episode was hilarious.

Why?

 

Because the ports in the ebay header flange is about one square inch, whereas this one is huge and has larger/equal length tubes..

Just another massive improvement on the exhaust on a built motor, the ebay header i had on was probibly worse than stock.

 

The port match was extremely bad. But with the new header its perfect. The intakes also going to have a meeting with the die grinder, i believe that is my other bottleneck right now.

its for sale, I was asking more than $4K (extra deal for a ratsun member). Weber carb and runs good. Still needs minor things, some new weatherstripping for side glass etc would be nice.

Yahoo Japan Auction is where I found mine but unfortunately the grill does not fit.

 

About the bumpers I'm in the same boat have yet to see any. I know of a guy who has them in Oregon but he wasn't willing to sell them as he knows how hard they are to come by.

Does anyone here know what the necessary steps to swap a KA24DE into a L20B S110 would be?

I'v been searching for info on this car for a while but have found relatively little.

In broad strokes.

 

Your transmission won't fit the KA and is short 26". The 720 Z series 5 speed 1.5" will fit the KA engine or a KA 5 speed probably from a truck rather than a car but the drive shaft will need shortening to accommodate it. The transmission mount will also need modding to fit this much different transmission.

 

A truck KA is  probably a better fit as the car KA has a front sump that won't come near clearing the 200sx front cross member. You can cut and flip the cross member around and weld it up.... similar to what is done putting a KA into a 510. Look up 'cross member flip on 510'. You will need to make custom KA engine mounts. The truck engine uses a vertical throttle body but the car intake will fit it.

 

Car EFI wiring harnesses are separate from the main harness and easier to remove from a 240sx and fit another car. Truck EFI wiring is buried in the truck main harness. You'll need a high pressure fuel pump for the EFI..... OR run without EFI by using a low pressure 3.5 PSI electric fuel pump, L20B distributor and make an adapter plate for the tuck intake and use a carb like a 32/36Weber.

 

You'll need a larger rad that fits, maybe electric fans.

 

 

 

 

This KA swap will be very similar to any other 510, 610, 710, A10 car and the same problems. Research KA swaps into any of these cars. (or trucks)
