I heard you can't boost KA's, if you even say "turbo" around them they explode violently. You gotta get an SR for mad bewst, y0.

Why is this in advanced? http://forums.freshalloy.com/images/graemlins/rolleyes1.gif

I was running 8psi on a 140k motor w/ 450cc injectors and a way conservative tunes, and I ruined the ring lands on 4th cylinder twice...soooo build a motor or get an SR, both are about equal cost. I enjoy my KA, but I still love an SR.

So since most everyone else is bull****ing you, I will lend some more useful info. If you do anything cheap and skimp out on important parts, it's going to fail. If you go either route, SR or KA and you do it right, meaning spend probably more money than he will want to spend on things like fuel and timing control. And making sure it's adjusted correctly. There is no reason you should have problems with either setup.

But I do agree with everyone else. There is not reason this should be in the advanced forum, or even a new post for that matter. Search around and look in the best of 240sx forum and you will find every answer your brain can formulate a question to...

And tell your 'friend' to do his own research.
