lol.. thats crazy. Don't the nismo mounts make your engine sit a bit higher too?Razi wrote:Wow good eye.Yep it's for the CA18, it barely clears it with my Nismo motor mounts.Maybe 1/4th of an inch clearance from the fuel rail plastic cover thingy, and the strut bar.
hmmm interesting. i've seen the on an sr powered caradrians_s13 wrote:btw, your front strut bar looks like it was for the CA18... I'm surprised it clears your KA. I tried a CA18 front bar, and it wouldn't clear my valve cover on my SR.
lol your reaction sounds alot like what i would have felt like hah ha.Razi wrote:Yeah like a big rig LMFAO.
The day I started it up and got it running.I turned onto an empty corner of the street and I hit the gas and I heard it spool, suck in air and pull me fairly quickly.
Then I pulled over next to my house and parked it, then I thought "Holy smokes I'm turbocharged" . And I sat in my car and walked around it for like 10 minutes, with my mind blown.
Hehe thanks vroom_chirp, any plans for your current 240?
Second that. Keep the stock look but clean it up. Your engine bay will look much better.presidential wrote:There is so much bull-ish in that engine compartment you need to get rid of. You really need to pare down some of the rats nest of vacuum lines and wires IMHO. You'd be surprised how much better these cars run without all of the extra BS they're laden down with.
this is one of the reasons why i didn't recirc mine. the bov is on the hot pipe, but i'll be switching it to the cold pipeLogan76 wrote:Only thing about recirculating off the hotpipe is, your putting air that is "hotter" back into your intake, i guess it doesnt matter but i always put my bov on the cold pipe.
Sweet. You better!le_ryan wrote:

Muahaha join the darkside.Spiffy240 wrote:Good stuff razi, but on a bad note this is pressuring me to do the same and turbo my ka already. I mean I only have 86k on my 92 ka and I have had it since 60k. The previous owner babied the car, I heard he got tickets on the highway for going to SLOW!
dammit, now I have to save up for a turbo setup along with all my other dreams.....
I might try to clean up a lot of the vacuum lines when I have time.Bmxandcars wrote:

+1 for a very nicely done and clean looking setup.

Woot! Glad you can look back at it for your KA-T.Good luck with it! Sure isn't a well traveled, or easy path.tramp_drift240 wrote:excellent thread for me to come back to Razi. you're making me REALLY want to boost my ka now.
