Why nor just go with one of the KA24 kits that some companys sell? (Greddy/HKS,Etc.) Probably be way more complete and reliable as well as have tech support.

I hear the KA24 is a bitch to turbo. I would just find an SR20DE and turbo it or even better SR20DET. My buddy was able to get a whole SE-R with a blown auto tranny for $300 with an SR20DE in it. swapped the engine and is just using some of the body and interior shtuff. only had like 90K on the engine too.

And i believe the KA24 is a truck engine. toque monster. i think it was used in the old Nissan hard bodies. But any ways, good luck man!

we are doing one right now at my work, its a 95 240sx with a Turbonetics kit...wow is this kit ghetto.
The amount of money that is being dumped into this car for this crappy kit is retarded..he could have spent the money on us doing an SR20 swap.

Definately go with the SR20DET, it's much more work in the beggining to find one and get the car converted, but it is a MUCH superior motor. The SR20DE is close to the DET but lacks oil squirters, and the rods and pistons are very un-friendly, I also believe that DET has alot more internal bracing in the block.

The KA24's will always be garbage, even when they are making big power they are slow to rev and about as responsive as a diesel truck motor. Plus they are heavy.

In the end you will see a little bit more torque with a slightly broader curve out of a VERY built KA24 series motor, but it will still be a heavy unresponsive cast iron turd under your hood. You will also end up spending much more money to build the KA motor up to the level a stock DET can handle, and doesn't include the tow bill when the KA ends up stranding you a few times. I was about 20 minutes from buying a 240 and about a day from buying an SR20DET clip before I realized I was going to be moving a cold snowy hellhole and all wheel drive would be a good thing to have. If you have any more questions on 240 stuff, let me know.
