Ka24De Conversion Ke55

10 posts in this topic

Has anyone done or heard of this conversion?

 

Engine comes in RWD form from a 2wd d22 navara. Also from a bluebird (U13) but that's FWD.

 

Is there somewhere that covers the legalities of engine conversion in QLD for road worthy purposes?

 

Cheers

Awesome. From what I can find online, ke55 coupe weighs 920kg? I thought they were more like 840kg.

 

Either way, ke24de seems to be a legal conversion in regards to displacement.

Now that I know it can be done legally, I will have to ring a few wreckers to see if they have any d22 navara wrecks.

 

Not much power difference between ka24de and sr20de. Ka24de has more torque mid range for better drive-ability.

 

Will post what the engine prices are etc and I'll go from there.

No one seems to have any rwd ka24de engines. I found one place that has a ka24e from a navara, which isn't a great motor. But they wanted $1100. Seems cheaper to just do a sr20det or ca18det :/

My first car was a pintara trx with a KA24E and my second car was a 180SX with an SR20DET. I've also driven a friends SR20DE pulsar and personally I'd go that option over the KA if you want non turbo. The KA isn't terrible, or maybe it is and i was just impressionable. Either way $1100 for the single cam version is a little rich.

I considered this at one point, and there is a guy that did it in europe I think, he drifted his ke70 with a ka24de. I personally don't think it's worth it, If you are sure you want to use a ka24de than go for it, but I think there would be better options tbh. The 3rz-fe is pretty good, weighs less, more displacement and much cheaper to turbo down the track, and ofcourse the sr20 route, it is a decent engine the ka24de, but not a particularly great one.

Do it, but buy a whole shitter Navara and get everything to make it run in one, then its just a matter of grafting it together. I gotta see another 2.4 corolla.
