You can swap it out and get a CA18DET. they rev higher than a KA:icon18

Its a lot more complicated than just doing mods, you have to change a lot of the structure of the engine. : ) How much are you looking to spend, because it will be a costly venture. : )

I'm willing to buy an engine, strip it and rebuild it,
plus my dad will help, he knows a lot and can help me get good deals.

he is building a 67 chevy big block 454 from the ground up :-)

A. Why do this with the SOHC B. Sounds like a good idea... more people need to pursue the All Motor KA more

Get Daunttless to hook you up with a CA18 and then get Paul to tell you how to build it. Oh, Paul is movingviolation, and Daunttless is, well, Daunttless. If you have the time and the $$ I think it could be worth your time.

Stick with the SOHC, that motor is over looked way too much. Go to http://courtesyparts.com/nismo/s13/ They have basically everything you would need to build the motor. I'm about to start a project on my KA24E. I'm shooting for 200 rwhp N/A, and I think it is easily attainable with the right tuning and know how, and I have both working for me at the time.

When my shop opens up I think we're going to pursue a KA24E hybrid using old Datsun parts. Who knows, I guess we'll see how it works out, but we want 200+ hp from the motor, and we'll probably build a few sell it as an engine swap as well. : ) We may work a couple DE's up too, who knows.

I thihnk you should check out the mikuni induction system for the SOHC. I plan to do that with mine but I'm not quite sure how it will work out yet. It's relativly cheap as well. Which motors are you going to be swapping parts with the KA24E?

Don't know for sure yet, and we probably won't release it once its all worked out. : ( At least not if we plan on selling the engines, if we don't end up doing it, we'll probably post it all on our website when its up and running. You should check out the book "How to modify your Nissan & Datsun OHC engine" its got a lot of useful information that can be applied to building a strong KA24E.

Or you can go the easy route and build a DE with some KA24E pistons. : )
