Aka-d's Sleeper Notch
« on: 09:23:36 PM / 24-Feb-10 »
Yo,

Thought it was about time to start a garage thread. Bought my 84 notch in September of 2009. The plan was to swap in a KA24DE+T and have a boost monster. After more research found out my rear diff will only handle about 285lbs of torque, so plans have changed. I came across a KA24E out of a 1990 240sx for only 90 bucks and I had to pick it up. The engine has a bad rod bearing but I planned on rebuilding and turboing the beast. But reality set in and I started to research parts for a N/A KA24E (Sucks having a budget!!!!!!).

Before I bought the car I found club-s12.org and it's the only reason I bought it. Must give thanks to all the members, all the modders and all the tuners of these forums.

So... here is the master plan:

*Engine & Transmission:
KA24E:
-Need a new oil pan.
-Minimal machine work; Crank needs machine work, rod(s) need machined and hone the cylinders.
-Trying to get my hands on some stock '89 pistons, 9.1:1 compression ratio instead of the 8.6:1.
-Minimal machine work on the heads; stainless steel valves, OJS Performance Camshaft, Aluminum Cam Gear.

Valves: http://estore.websitepros.com/1636426/Detail.bok?no=430
Cam Gear: http://www.euroexportinc.com/product_info....&language=1
-New water pump, tensioner and timing chain; since its already taken apart.
-AEM Short Ram intake.
-Stainless steel headers: http://www.streetbeatcustoms.com/BPP/Heade...Headers/549433/
-Going to have Bud's Muffler of Denver build the exhaust; 2.5" piping, cat and muffler.
-Slightly upgraded clutch: http://www.dxdracingclutches.com/
-Light weight crank pulley: http://www.amazon.com/OBX-Underdrive-Crank...n/dp/B0020ZM9SO
-Replacing every gasket, seal and o-ring.
Overhaul Gasket Kit: https://www.nissanpartswarehouse.com/nissan-240sx-parts.html
-Replacing all vacuum lines & hoses.


*Suspension:
Front 240sx suspension:
-Lower Control Arms
-Tension Rods & Brackets
-Hubs & Knuckles
-Tie Rod Ends
-Replace wheel bearings
-Front Calipers & Mounting Brackets
-Stabilizer Bar
-Full Polyeuthane Bushing Kit
-Struts & Megan Racing Lowering Springs

Rear:
-3rd Gen Camaro Shocks.
-Any bushings I can find.
-Megan Racing Lower Springs from 240sx.

That is the plan to start. After I get this all put together I'll start getting rid of all the rust, try to get the manual roll down window / doors, would like a turbo hood, might put in a CD player and some better speakers, but for now I'm just trying to get the CA20E out of my engine bay! I'm trying to get into some autocross a.s.a.p!

Current project:
Wiring battery to the trunk!

Parts in need (aka wishlist!)
-KA24E ECU (Manual Tranny)
-KA24E Wiring Harness
-S14 Tension Rod Brackets
-240sx front seats
-240sx Rack & Pinion
-S13 Front Driveshaft
-KA24E Transmission

Please check my for sale thread, will trade for the above parts:
