neither, it's a BS15, and you need to change your headlight fluid very often with those parts. Like, every single time you start the car up. So, carry around a couple gallon jugs of that stuff (Make sure it's a bright green) and make sure that the fluid is always high. Good luck and God speed.

(What the hell are you talking about? s13 or ps13? what part are you talking about)

S13 is just a model mark.

RPS13/PS13? thats a SR20DET isnt that in the SX 180 :ohcrap:

the 240SX uses the KA24DE-(T)

If you have a 1990 240sx, you don't have ka24de unless you have performed an engine swap, or put a ka24de head on it.
1990 should have the SOHC ka24e.

Yes thats right. I think the the S13 is more suited to the SR20 then the KA24, in Australia you don't see many S13 with the KA24.

Im really confused about this. The 240sx and the silvia.. are they the same car. They look so alike. And why does some 240 have SR engines and some KA?

posted by  CarEXPERT

The Yanks get the KA24 engine in the 240sx but other countries like australia we get it with the SR20, they are the same car but just dirrerent engines.

yeah as they said, the american cars came with the ka24 unfortunately, and the engine didn't come in a 16 valve until about 1995, the sr20det engine over... well everywhere else comes turboed and intercooled producing more power, even though it's a smaller engine as a 2 liter

The DOHC 16 valve KA24DE came out in 91...not 95
