Re: KA Bolt-ons and N/A Tuning

Ive seen a badass ITB setup made from using the ITB's off a GSX-R 750..You have to find a way to modify the TPS which is kinda a bitch, but mostly everything else looks like simple modifying, i really wanna try it but i dont know how to make the TPS system work..

You can really go all-out crazy with an NA. Waste of Money? Last time I checked all mods on any car are a financial loss. What does it matter if wants to mod a KA24DE...? Or an SR20?

First thing is first: Intake, header, exhaust... suspension mods.

Still want more? Tell us what your goals are.

yea but thats a huge financial loss for what you would put into it for a turbo setup youd make twice the power. And if you want to look at it your way really.....anything you buy in the world ever is a financial loss. So you make no sense anyways.

Now you are seeing it my way!

So what does it matter? Let him do it! Let him mod his NA!

Re: KA Bolt-ons and N/A Tuning

uhhhh no one is stopping him. Just letting him know that a header, intake, and exhaust will not do shit for him. He wants to beat people in races.......anything would destroy that. Iv driven faster minivans. Nitrous would be a definant for NA KA. Just do it right and tune for it.

Re: KA Bolt-ons and N/A Tuning

nitrous is poor mans power, and should be shunned except for when used in cooling of an intercooler..

i do agree, i dont like nitrous at all either except for intercooler spray. But its great for when absolutely needed or spooling a big big turbo lol. Yea cooling off an intercooler, but in a way thats the same thing. You could just as easily use a water sprayer, or co2 sprayer. "spray" something to produce more power.

i absolutely hate when people are fast only because of that . Your like whats done, they reply just nitrous. Im like uhhh yea thats fast, but is it really any fun. Sure its fun to use it, but damn it will make it go boom and you have to get it refilled to play with it all the time. Id rather have some actual mods to make it go fast....and you only pay once. Sure you may spend more on modding everything up, but atleast you have the power all the time not only when your just pushing a button.

So basically i look at it like its using "codes" in nintendo or something. Even though its the real deal. Domestic guys love that stuff lol.

Re: KA Bolt-ons and N/A Tuning

I don't understand... I mean on a stock engine, a small shot nitrous is no big deal... it's mediocre and you can only pray to be "fast".

But alot of the guys running serious shot's of nitrous have their cars tuned and built for nitrous. We aren't talking about a cheap slap on mod here. Reinforced internals are required along with ECU tuning, etc. It's a science and deserves as much respect as any other major power-adder.

Besides we are talking about an NA here of the same size engine etc. if you can't build a Boosted KA24 to beat a Sprayed KA24... haha... that's your problem. Maybe you shouldn't rely on a "huge" turbo and do some tuning? Ey?

Re: KA Bolt-ons and N/A Tuning

Wow I walk away for 2 days, and bam, 2 pages of posts. Crazy. Actuly, this is great, because now I've gotten a lot of different oppinions, and ideas.

Pending a new job, I may be just trying to go for the swap right away. To answer some one's question, I do have mechanic knowlage. mostly eletrical, and supenion, and I've done some tuning before on other cars. This is my first Nissan of course.

And I am going to do a lot more research on what I'm going to put into the car, before I put it in there, so I know exactly what I am going to get from it, and if it really is what I want.

Thanks everyone for your input.

Re: KA Bolt-ons and N/A Tuning

shouldnt rely on a huge turbo and do some tuning???? You would have to tune either way.....seriously wth are you talking about?? If you have a huge turbo and need nitrous to spool it....major tuning would be needed both for turbo and the nitrous shot.


how small are you talking to make it "no big deal" on a STOCK ka. That shit will cause wonders. If its that small why bother in the first place. Iv seen plenty stock motors go boom on small shots. Maybe not on a brand new car(usually takes a little longer), but were talking about a 100,000+ mi STOCK KA here. And people tend to abuse the nitrous, they get hooked and shoot it more than barry bonds with steroids.

and wtf are you talking about making a turbo ka beat a nitrous ka???????
