Recommended Posts




what tranny's fit this engine? how much power does this engine have? how would one go about getting parts to set up the ignition?

from the picture it only has four plugs, isn't it suppose to have 8? for the price it doesn't sound too bad. any info is appreciated.

That's not a Z or L type engine.


That's an ALMOST Baby RB.


Get a CA18DE cylinder head, or just a CA18DE, and make a baby RB, with the associated power levels.


Port the shit out of the head, ditch the carbs for FI, and run a turbo. Make Greater Than KA24DET power.


Not sure what kinds of transmissions fit, but you can usually swap the front half of the transmission cases on nissan FS571X transmissions

The CA20(S) carb engine was available on the '82-'83 200sx along with the Z22E. In '84 the CA20E was fuel injected.


It was rated at 88 hp @5,200 and 112 ft lbs torque. Not a barn burner. Maybe the JDM one had all the goodies.
