Matts13vert's Socal Dream (Super Stock) KA-T Setup. SR exhaust manifold used!
FORWARD TO PAGE 5 FOR UPDATED SETUP
A few months ago, I decided to turbo my KA, but only if I can get it to look as factory as possible, so no shiny piping or flashy parts. I wanted this to look 100% STOCK. Luckily, a guy on Craigslist was selling some turbo parts from an SR, so I swooped them up on my way to Formula D (Beginning of October 2010). It took me about two months to find and buy all the parts, then the build started (Beginning of December 2010).
All the parts used:
-SR Manifold modified to be used on a KA with Stock SR Heat Shield
-SMIC w/ Intercooler Piping and OEM air duct
-Greddy 3" Elbow
-3" Down Pipe
-S14 Upper Intake Manifold with plugged PCV Ports
-PCV system modified using one check valve, tee, and oil separator
-NISSPORT Oil Pressure Adapter
-Mishimoto Radiator with Dual Electric Fans (painted black)
-Hayden Automotive Fan Controller
-R.S. Enthalpy Tuned Ecu (T25, N60, 370cc)
-Walbro 255lph Fuel Pump
-Blitz DD Blow Off Valve Recirculated (painted black)
-S13 SR20DET OEM Intake Box
-JGS Motor Mounts (rubber)
-Nismo Type B FPR
-Z32 Fuel Filter
-NGK BKR7E Spark Plugs
-Isis FPR Adapter
-Greddy 36mm Radiator Temp Switch Adapter
-Bosch Spark Plug Wire Set
-Circuit Sports Thermal Plenum Intake Gasket
-Circuit Sports Magnetic Oil Drain Plug
-Innovate 3833 Turbo Timer w/ Wideband
-XTD Stage 3 Clutch
-DIF Solid Aluminum Steering Bushing
-Energy Suspension Polyurethane Steering
Keep in mind, this is my first turbo build ever!
Finally pulled it out.
My boy Garrett doing working his magic.
Here you can see the SMIC w/o the air duct installed
Scrub a dub dub haha
Love it… No grease!
I had this manifold but decided not to use it.
DIF steering bushing install.
ES steering rack bushings.
Black Friday Special!!
I found a member (Alex Grower) on Nicoclub who could weld my KA flanges to my SR manifold. So here are pics of his work. If you need the same thing done or any other fab work, pm me for more info.
Here you can see where he cut the flanges and the bevel he put on the 3 and 4 runners
We used s13 KA flanges and they needed some work to be used
How flat the welds are
Engine in still working out some small issues.
Final Product!! Running like a champ, no issues whatsoever.
I reached my goal for a Stock looking KA-T! Let me know what you think.

if im not mistaken, i saw you car at the anaheim K1 Schassis car show/meet. correct?
yeah. there was a coupe there with KA-T, but he had aftermarket mani and piping. but they were all paint flat black, and from what he told me, cops let him pass being dumbfounded and stuff... cuz of his stock intake box an what-not, but i think yours looks much more stock than his, maybe clean up that intake piping and that zipties...other than that, it would def fool a newbie fan boy if you play your game hard. lol good shit though man.

I dig this...I get a kick out of the 'stock looking' engine bay...keeps the authorities guessing right!
Awesome on the factor manifold conversion. I will undoubtedly use a stock FWD sr manifold on my next turbo altima!

Yeah, even with my half-wrapped Megan manifold and painted pipes he let me go.
This setup will fly under the radar no problem!

^^^yeah clean coupe bro.
yours and the OPs are pretty dope set-up, considering its mostly OE stuff and under the radar type...but you did have a front mount, OP still have the sidemount..still dope though. i like.

The zip ties are all gone now, only thing i need to do is clean up the intake piping or paint the couple black.
Thanks for the feedback!

My engine bay from the 1st K1 meet.
I made my own "cooling panel" and painted it black to cover the front mount.
Currently, I got rid of all those vacuum lines at the front.
I might tuck my injector harness and stuff, and neaten up my fuel line stuff.
