Ca20de Head Bolts
« on: 08:48:49 AM / 27-Jul-10 »
just thought id give this one last try

does anyone know what the specs for or which headbolt has been found to work for installing the ca18de head on the ca20e block?

this is extreemly important, its basically the missing link for me. since the ca20de has been created by more than a few, it would be nice to know which bolts were used.. or if custom, then what specs so i can have a set made.

PLZ HELP!!!!

originally quoted by baller status:
DONT: do intake, header, exhaust (you'll be disappointed) and then modify the fuel and ignition system (will get you nowhere at this point).
DO: raise compression (pistons) and upgrade the cam. Then do the things I told you not to.

ummm I can think of only one off the top of my head, and it was stupid expensive. From what I remember it was way cheaper to go out and get an SR front clip.

A discussion was made at this Linky

Sorry, personal opinion here, but with rods smaller than my pointer finger (And I don't have pudgy fingers), I wouldn't trust it with even 20 more hp than stock. I have zero shame in saying I hate that fucking motor with the flaming passion of a thousand suns.

You need to use cut down CA18DET bolts (or they'll bottom out before tightening) & drill out the holes in the block to suit the thicker bolts. In the end it cost 3 times as much to get it to fit than the bolts themselves.

The stock rods can handle 200rwkw if shot peened as I've proven.

Tell us more Bryan. I'm always keen to hear what others have come up with regarding the CA20DE(T).
