    Somebody just asked me if you could swap cams between a KA24DE and an SR20DE. I told them I'd ask around, are they interchangable or are they like D and B series engines where nothing is interchangeable?

    Also, Airjockie... when you dine out in Japan, are tips included in the check or no?

    as far as I know...the cams are not interchangable....

    And in Japan...there is no tipping....they make a hourly wage...and the tip if any is added in the service charge....but...sometimes the rich geezers will just pay a $52 bar tab and slap down $100 and leave....

    lol some guy on another board has a friend with a KA24 swap into his 240sx, he wanted to know if the cams were interchangable for some reason.

    Thanks for the verification.

    huh?

    Reliable is the key. Better..... uhh... I would choose it over a DOHC for an allmotoro KA... however I would use a DOHC for a turbo.

    Better.... I doubt.... more reliable.. yes.
