The Nissan KA24DE engines are a fairly recent development in their automotive technology. It is a 2.4 Liter Fuel Injected 16-valve Dual Overhead Cam 4 Cylinder engine.The engine is actually a redesigned KA24E engine which has been used in Nissan pickups. It is available in the 240SX from 1990 up as well as the Altima from 1992 onward.
The engine responds very well to turbo, and is actually available as a stock turbo engine in Japan as the KA24DET.
These engines have also been proven to be quite tough. In fact the model KA24E/DE and KA24DE-R or KA24DER use turbochargers, which proves how durable these engines are. Turbocharging puts incredible stress on the ”bottom end” of an engine, any engine built from the factory to accept turbocharging has extremely strong integrity built right into the ”block assembly”. Making the non turbo charged versions nearly indestructible.
