Z24 Engine Swap?
« on: 10:57:49 PM / 02-Sep-08 »
So, im wondering, is there ANY good in maybe... i dunno, swapping a ca20e head, on a z24 truck block, and dropping it in?

i found no posts regarding the z24, i know its not exactly a high performance motor, BUT there still semi easy to get, but im GUESSING the head isnt the greatest thing, i have no clue, school me.

I have seen the Z22E without a head, and the CA18ET and CA20E engines are different. I do not believe you can "bolt on" a CA20E head on a Z series engine.

You would be better off just running a built-up Z22E.

THAT IS EASY, anyone can camber a skinny as tire till it dosnt rub. Now fitting an 11 with a 315 on stock fender with reasonable camber, that is fitment. And looks, and performs better than both.

You have a CA20E car, just get a cheap as dirt KA24DE (or free KA24E) swap and be happy.

I wouldn't buy a CA20E S12 without expecting to do that.

Just stick with motor platforms that came during or after the S12 and you'll be fine

Well let's keep things real in this tech thread. I'm closing it now, humor time is done.
