I'm sure you could use this as a guide (It's for the KA24E)
It's easy providing you have time and the right tools

i wouldn't say he's throwing away money on his ka. but for that price you can buy a decent used engine. it takes i'll say about 2-hours and about $150 in parts if you do it yourself. i'm not saying you should do it if you don't know how just trying to encourage you to learn.

not really anything wrong with them. i enjoyed mine, it's just that i dropped about $1,000 in mine just to get it running again and it crapped out after 2,000 miles. took the head and block to get them checked for cracks and none showed...then the bottom end dropped out. yeah, they are a good engine, but i personally wouldn't spend money on one again. i could have came close to a swap for what i spent to blow mine again (and no, i didn't beat on it. didn't go over 3k before shifting)

my thoughts exactly...but like i said, i'm not trying to diss the ka. i've seen some pretty sweet setups. just imo, not the best, most cost efficient choice.
