There is a procedure to check clearances. Some ticking is normal for the first few seconds, but after that if you are hearing it that is not right.nekoabandoned wrote:has anyone herd of cases where after they did the cam swap there would be a loud ticking sound coming from the head?
my question for this set up, and any cam setup that deals with this thread is wether there any fuel management neccessary, besides changing the timing on the dizzy?248/232 this is hand-down where its at. If you have some s13 cams and some s14 cams you should have already done this. the power production is great everywhere. you only lose a little bit of top end over 248/248 and you gain more low end than you get with any other swap besides maybe 232/232. the KA craves this swap, it loves the low end and, chances are you only rev to 6500 anyway, so thats why this is the cam sawp for you. only don't do this if you wanna get beat by me. i'm only kidding, i'm too poor to be fast.
Yes they are....95+ Ka's have 232's for both i/e while s13 cams are 240/248 i/e. I've done this swap on my previous zenki...i felt a slight lost on the low end put it "picks" up on top a bit better. If u can find some cheap S13 cams i'd say go ahead and jump on it...anything for more "power".spooled240 wrote:i'm looking to upgrade my cams to stock s13 cams (240/248) but i'm wondering if the s13 cams will work in my 97 ka. I thought i read somewhere that the 97-98 ka's are slightly different than the s13 ka's.
hey spooled i did this in my 98 with the s13(240/248) worked perfect with no problems. i dont remember the power gains cause it was a long time ago but it did help. do it and note how it worked for your kat im curious.spooled240 wrote:i'm looking to upgrade my cams to stock s13 cams (240/248) but i'm wondering if the s13 cams will work in my 97 ka.

Thats funny a guy over in zilvia claimed it was the biggest dog sh&T set up over the 240/248.slidewayz808 wrote:ive been running the 248/232 for almost a year now and i like it. i tried the 248/248 but didnt like how the tq just peaks. with the 248/232 set up tq is much flatter. it has a broader powerband i should say. im even with my friends bmw e36 325i!!
well i have adj. cam gears with it also. never had a problem so far. my timing is around 25 degrees too so i think that helps alot with the midrange tq i get.Bigvinnie wrote:

yup the 248/248 will get u more peak hp/tq. i did that on my friends s13 248(+2.5 advance cam timing)/248. it pulls nicely but i still pull away from him. it could be that i have headers and a straight pipe and he has stock.spooled240 wrote:I have a s14 with a stock ka24de(not turbo anymore :cry ) and i want to upgrade my cams to either the stock s13 240/248 or maybe the 248/248's. I just want MAX power/torque at around redline and i don't really care about a smooth power band, etc...so I'm guessing dual 248's would do the trick with a little adjustment in the cam gears?
with my set up248(+2.5)/232 i have power from like 3500-6/6500ish. i shift at 6500 anyways. for me its a nice set-up for drifting. nice flat tq curve with decent power up top, where im at most of the time anyways. i keep up with basic swap sr on the track so im happy.spooled240 wrote:The stock ka is slow as hell and peaks around 5500 rpms...as of now I just want to have a n/a ka that is fun to drive. I don't need a ton of hp but I just want a fun power band that will peak at 6500 rpms.
well i never tried retarding the ex like u did but i pull nicely everywhere. i came from a stock s14 set up 232/232 (had a 95 ka in my 93 s13) to a 248(+2.5)/232 to 248(+2.5)/248 and also drove a 240/248. yes 232/232 had great low end but no top end. the 248/248 had nice top end but no low/mid. with i notice with my set up its more in the middle. kind of like the stock 240/248 but pulls more up top after 5500 where the 240/248 would slowly die out.alkemyst wrote:All I know is I did the JWT's did +2.5 and -2.5 and my car lost power with 248/232 in my 98.
