ka24de into 240z swap completed with turbo

Recommended Posts

Yes i agree, The KA makes more useable hp and tq, than the stock n/a L-series from my expiriance. But I still like the L-series much better as it belongs there and sounds and feels better! But the ka makes the most power for the money in our special case.

 

4 gerbils, cheap, with x-flow head, 4 valves per cylinder, DOHC, and 2.4liters with strong and cheap aftermarket support takes the win for the buget racing season. Plus we added a turbo and the motor likes it.:mrgreen:

Kaustav, one of my 7 team members, filmed 3 passes at this event! Enjoy!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j3gxQpe4S68

Team Midnight Boba and Screaming Yellow Zonkers.

The yellow bug team (Zonkers) has some special engine, i dunno how they got it for under a $1000. oh well. we still beat them.

Thunderbox (Corolla) and Cone Killers (Mustang 5.0 with wet 200 shot)!

Some of our $1,000 competition.

Zonkers and Boba, (seems like there was tree trouble with the yellow bug's lane, so it wasn't a head-to-head unfortunately):( We got a 8.0 second 1/8th mile pass at 96mph. Pretty good for 205mm street tires.

Supposedly 12.55 seconds with a calculator if it was a 1/4 mile. But i know its got potential high 7's 1/8th.

 

The 1/8th mile is not easy! if you screw up the launch even a little, you are doomed for a slow time. takes alot of skill and no room for catch up.

 

And Finally...

Hmm now which one should I put my newly aquired KAde into hmmm My Engineless 1984 300zx NA (due to rebuilding it) or my 280zxTurbo hmmmmm

 

Cause then I have to ponder if I should swap the L28ET into the 300zx hahah that would just be wacky..

Opens the hoods

*300zx with L28ET (modified 300zxt ECU) *

*280zxt with KADET motor*

 

that should cock some heads to the right and the left

Looks like a fun project! since no one has shown interest in purchasing it, I'll be the first! :icon45: how many more events do you have for it? and what will the asking price be?? [i'm hoping around the build cost :shock:] keep me updated, you can pm me, but I'm only on this forum about once a week. if anything I can pm you my contact info.

News! We got on Speed Channel!

 

Here is a link to the official Mobil 1 site for the feed if you missed it last week:

http://grid1.tv/#browse/media_vault/tribes?id=1_227

They flew in from NY to film us racing, then they sent the media to be processed in England, then it shows up on speed channel in the USA and other countries.

 

The car is running n/a since it was autocrossed at the last race (left alone since the Speed channel filmed it racing last month), the turbo kit is ready to bolt on (takes an hour) and i have a tune for both setups.

 

I haven't had time to get the car ready to sell as im starting my own racing series in San Diego for 300/400 Treadwear street tires. www.SDclubRacing.com Check it out could use some input for rules and always could use some help and sponsors.

 

We are done racing, i pmed you the info. and you are definitly not the first to show interest in this awsome turbo race car :)

I have both the turbos you mentioned, the front housing is large on the HY35, but the exhaust housing is smaller, very simular to running a t3/t4, it is not a twin scroll, it has a t3 flange. the WH1C has a twin scroll and is alot heavier and a little bigger on the exhaust side.

 

the hy35 spools up fast and at around 3k rpms. I love it! its been handling 25psi of pressure very nicely. they are designed for 30psi, and it sounds like a semi when i go! Way louder than almost any other turbo i have used or worked with! i just love that insanely loud rushing sound! :)

I forgot to mention: My sponsor, Aimco clutches, is offering discounts when you mention our racing team. I have used 4 clutch sets so far on my cars with very good results.

http://www.aimcoclutches.com/index.php

if you call and deal with Jimmy directly you will get a better price!

call them 1800-594-0825 ask for Jimmy Mention my name, Justin, and that I built a 240z for grassroots motorsports racing and he will give you a big discount. he is also knowlageable, so tell him your setup and hp and he will set u up with a clutch, they also sell lightened flywheels and Stock OEM clutches.

 

Remember you must talk to Jimmy and you must be very specific on what you need and the more polite and specific, the better chance of a bigger discount. haha!

 

For example, if you have 200hp then order a clutch that can handle more than that, not somthing that is right at that limit. Or if you rev to 8,000rpms, you gotta let him know. he has stage 4, stage 5, upon request and he will piece together a custom set if you need it.

 

 

Thanks!
