Stock Nissan USA engine mostly used in the 240sx. KA = model, 24 = 2.4 liter, D = Double Over Head Cam, E = Electronic Fuel Injection.
A turboed Ka24de is a good match for the Sr20.

1. An absolutely magnificent and superior piece of machinery manufactured by Nissan USA. Heads and shoulders above its lame JDM counterparts *cough* SR20 *cough* with limitless power potential, and superior tuning ability. Motor for true tuners and Nissanaholics who don't chose to bitch out.
1. Wonder if that douchebag with the SR20 knows he just got owned by a KA24.

2. USDM (KA24DE) > JDM (SR20DET)

3. Whoa, what'd that guy turn in the 1/4 mile? He HAS to have a KA in that thing, there's no way an SR20 could do that.
