oh and thanks nis720 i did more research and you where right, thank god i didnt start this thing yet =0

the d21 mains are about .020 bigger than the s13's
Also found the timing mark on my s13 underdrive pulleys timing marks don't line up with the Hardbody pulley. So I had to mark it based on the hardbody pulley to set the timing, confirmed it by setting the motor at TDC and checking the mark. I'm currious to see if the stock s13 pulley matches the hardbody pulley or if the timing cover has the pin set slightly different.

This thread was LONG overdue...

Sorry your old motor gave up the ghost man, but you guys are doing the hands on research that everyone here always asks for answers to!

I didn't see it any where but i have a few questions...

Does all this only apply to KA24DE blocks?

Can you swap a DOHC head onto the SOHC block and vice versa?

Other than the Block Stiffener in the S13 Block, what make this block superior if any?

Got a 510 Project coming up with a KA swap

this thread applies to the single cam not the DE

and as for swapping heads, i dont know but its highly unlikely.

and the block stiffener is the only advantage i see

Ok I have a question, I have both motors, the ka24e truck that came out of my truck, and the 240sx ka24e motor. The truck motor has 350k miles vs. The car motor has 140k so my original plan was to just drop the whole car motor into the truck, and I've already swapped the oil pickup and oil pan, besides that what else is there? Ive read on ka-t.org forum people were saying you can't check the oil if you swap pans? Idk I really like to know if I can just drop it in and do a few things to it. Any help?
