Unofficial moniker for a ka24de engine, that has been modified by adding a turbocharger and its necessary accessory components. This has become more popular over the past few years with Nissan enthusiasts as the interest in import cars and performance tuning has continued to rise. The original ka24de engine is a 2.4 liter, dual overhead cam, iron block engine, and was used in the 00–04 Xterra base XE, 98 Frontier, 93-2001 Altima, and 91-98 Nissan 240SX. The 240sx is a popular RWD vehicle in the drift racing circuit and well-known within the tuning world. Unfortunately, the naturally aspirated ka24de engine has a somewhat bad rap as a "truck engine", and in its stock form, only puts out 155 hp/160 ft. lbs of torque. Therefore, many of decided to perform an engine swap in favor of a sr20det
"Dude, what engine do you have?"
"It's a ka-t, and I'm a girl, thanks."

"With proper tuning and parts, a ka24det can easily run 350 whp."
