so not sure if this question has ever been asked before, but i didn't know what to search for, but just out of curiousity does anyone know of any decent mods you can do to your na ka that you couldnt do on a ka-t?

In before the flood of flaming.

Oh... wait, this isn't one of those *other* forums.

Good thread on N/A builds. Read up. We actually have an entire section devoted to N/A KA's. Check it out, enjoy your stay.

perhaps i did not explain myself well. i did look through all the stickies in the na section, my question is that are there any performance mods you can do to a na ka engine that you would not want to do to a turbo'd ka engine?

How about high-comp pistons for one? But if you read through all the stickies, I'm sure you knew that one already.

think of the Slowsky`s with DSL versus those bunny`s with the fast gel on their feet in comcast commercials. It`s sort of like that.

You can push a NA KA to about what a totally stock SR20DET puts down (205PS models) and still have a decent street car...once you are past that level it`s going to end up costing more than a turbo kit from even Greddy and drivability in the street range will suck

ok thanks guys, ya i did know about the high comp pistons, just thought i would see if anyone knew of anything else. i race in autox and i was tryin to decide if i should stay in sts class with just a few na mods, or if i should move all the way up to modified class with a turbo kit. looks like i will probably stay with the na ka, thanks for the info

basically no

higher compression pistons/mill head ect basically all boils down to increasing compression which is essentially what your doing with a turbo system

you could maybe count itb's, although you can integrate those into a turbo as well
