Fj20e Vs Ca18et
« on: 03:30:38 PM / 04-Feb-10 »
Here is what I have to decide. Since I've bought an S12 with FJ20E I have posted a thread in here. And I recently met a guy from my college who have S12 too but it's with the CA18ET and he also has a spare engine for it. But some crazy taxi driver totaled his car and now I can buy it for a spare. So my question is should I stick with the FJ or to go with the CA18ET and convert it to CA18DET. And another thing is the bottom end of the CA18ET as strong as CA18DET.

One engineer stated that the car could develop more than 930hp with a redline around 10,500rpm.

Don't  FJ20 is legendary, CA18ET is average (maybe below). And it's not easy like that to make an DET out of the CA18ET. Lot of internal must be swapped and it's going to cost more than just buying an original DET. Don't believe me watch this FJ20 beast (turbocharged): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kDGg3G-p6Fc...feature=related

USEF says "Impulsion is the term used to describe the transmission of an eager and energetic, yet controlled propulsive energy generated from the hindquarters into the athletic movement of the horse.". How cool is that? Impulsion build here

What he said is true. Cams, intake, and exhaust make a stable, powerful NA engine from an FJ20E. And you can always go either two ways... turbocharge it, or carburetors like mine has, and make tons of power.

FJ is epic. CA18ET has potential, but it's no FJ.

BTW, where are you located? FJ20E isn't found everywhere, only certain countries got them.

Hella flush and all associates should be gunned down for brainwashing people into thinking a 225 and lots of camber is proper wheel fitment. 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.
i dont own a s12 at the moment but trying to acquire one to get rid of my s13 hatch

An fj20e would probably be pretty hard pressed even after a lot of mods to make what the fj20et makes basically stock. At least for a street car that is limited to lower octane gas.
FIrst my rims are horrible, than there ok when painted black , now my cars horrible, now my fenders are to much after i was told i couldnt do it.... Lol club s12 ftw.....  Only here have Ive been told they look like shit..... SOrry its not bone stock with crown vic rims running the stock vg making 130whp and looks generic like every other one. My car looks dope ive been told this a billion times on local forums....

Well I'm located in Bulgaria and my car is imported from Germany and I think I'm gonna stick with the FJ then I can just sell the other two CA's and save some money for the FJ power upgrades.
