Honda k24 240z

Recommended Posts

Hello, so I'm starting a new project. I'm pulling the Sr20det out and swapping in a Honda K24A2 turbo engine into my 1973 240Z. This is a list of the basics:


2006-2008 Honda k24a2 2.4L vtec

Cd009 Nissan 370z transmission 

Efr8474 twinscroll turbo 

Haltech elite 1500 Ecu.


This is my first attempt to do a build log.

Looking good! I think the K24 setups in a Z is a great option honestly. Great power with light weight. 

@heyitsrama this specific section of the subframe does not flex a whole bunch under torque. The nearby tie rod mounting box is the thickest steel on a Z. If it does bind, if blame steeper angle on the steering linkage. 
Ask me how I know so much about the subframe 🤣😂. I have rebuilt this whole section of the car in new steel.


you do make a good point though, the whole subframe should be reinforced and/or a roll cage added for rigidity. Looks like this setup will produce at least 300ft-lbs which is where I feel the stock frame starts to flex too much.

I will look into reinforcing it further. I have some done. I've got a welded rollbar at the rear, and brace on the front struts. I'm just waiting on the fuel rail, clutch, spacer for dry sump, and few other things.


In terms of power. Similar engine with same turbo was making 600whp. I'm planning on running less.

South Bend clutch and new injectors have arrived. The shop is a little swamped with cars, but I should back in very soon. I was hoping to get it done before winter, but I think the new goal is to be road ready before spring. 


Why the dry sump? Just because you can? or does it help with clearance?


I went with the dry sump as the k24 is a very tall engine, and I was concerned about the oil pan hanging out of the bottom of the car.  I thought about trying to make a custom oil pan, but went alittle blingy.


Hopefully I'll have more updates in the next month.
