So I finally got my ka24e/de running and dialed in.
This thing rips. 11.1 compression using e pistons with the de head, running Rx1 carbs and a l series single pickup distributor, 280zx 5 speed trans
e lower timing chain ( had to massage the chain guide on the passenger side to accomadate the wider de head)
de upper timing chain ( i used a frontier set but a 240sx set works also)
e rods or de rods are fine
E front cover
E water pump
E crank pulley
E oil pump
L series (l20b) distributor shaft
L series el dizzy
E oil pickup
240sx de throttle cable
Had to fabricate a small part to gap the distance between the de head front cover and the e lower timing cover.
