KA Sleeper KA-T Photos. Post them up!!!

I know we have threads regarding chassis and engine bays. I figure start one specifically for Stealth KA-T setups. This is all about being sleeper status regardless of how much HP your making. Hopefully this will be able to help future KA-T guys. Quick specs are optional just pics. Enjoy..!!

Very nice! Like what you guys are doing with the OEM look! If something like this was readily available back in the days, there been more KA-Ts out there.

Making me tempted to do that to my DD S13. Love the OEM look. Is there a thread where most of the info on the modified SR manifold exist?

To the people using tubular manifolds and posting it in the sleeper thread, you are failing.

And aren't there companies selling iron ka-t manifolds on ebay for like $100 now?

haha you guys are both wrong, I got 3 years on the engine you see in that picture (its been a daily driver that drives almost 700 mile round trips twice a month up north towards sacramento) without one single problem, there was a heatshield that I made for the manifold and a custom heatshield for the BMC, I put alot of thought into my setups, those pics arent of the final setup lots of things changed. Oh yea it gets over 420 mile per tank full.

Been in this game since 1998 "turbo charging my cars", but bought my first 91 B13 Sentra SE-R in 1995 when I was in the Marine Corps, imma big ole SR20DET guy but I sure do love me some KA24DE-T.

I dont take risk, trust me this is why I had zero issues with all of my setups cause I never cheap out or jury rigg stuff, I like reliabilty and good gas milage. I beat the shit out of this car on a daily it see's redline all day every day, but i treat'em right. KA-T reliability is all in tunning and I know how to tune my own car.

That was my KA-T thread back in early 2008

This is a picture of what the final heat shield looked like but even that I made lil changes to, alot of pictures were lost.

There is no issue with my oil return what so ever and I bet no one other than the other 4 KA-T setup I have done have a return like mines.

You can see my oil return runs right threw the center of the engine mount bracket here in this picture (but its not a complete picture) but thats where it runs threw I dont know how the hell you melted a oil return hose what were you running some cheap ass hose?

im not trying to argue with you or question your setup

im just saying imo and experience i have melted hose ends cause from heat transfer from the turbo to the hose and melted around the clamps
but its working fro you then theres no big deal

you dont have to go on a posting streak trying to defend yourself

My KA+T had an oil return like that, back in ~'00... Melted quickly. I was using the prototype FMAX turbo logstyle manifold. Had to switch to braided hose. But then again, I live in Arizona, and track the car on roadcourses...

Clean oil return routing..

SAFC tuning while it will work. I'd recommend a ROM tuned ECU for a basic KA-T. You can still use the SAFC for minor adjustments if needed. General rule if running straight SAFC is to retard timing .5 degrees per 1 psi of boost. BTW. I did run this before on my very first KA-T for about 2 months car run aggressive so better safe than sorry. GL

I could have wraped them that woven fiberglass and aluminum foil that is used in this application from the factor on the SR20DET which would have been a good extra margin for safety sake, so thats a good idea just didn't need it on mines but its a good idea.

Nonetheless, your setup is clean, and works for your operating environment. Seeing the OEM type setup is tempting me to do the same for my DD, but I need to get of my rearend and get my S14 back up and running before starting another project.
