you guys are nuts. knocking the KA cause its based on what was originally a truck engine?
i guess you folks never heard of a little thing called a ford lightning.
personally i don't like either of them. i don't see any perfect motors for my application. i want 250 NA hp to the wheels WITH the same torque. the SR's valvetrain is GLASS and you JDM junkies don't even know it. the KA is a tank compared to the SR. its perfect but the powerband is a lot less linear than most motors due to its torquey nature.
i want a 350Z powerplant in my sub 2700 lb car but a KA-T will do me just fine.
the retardation of humanity constantly amazes me.
p.s. any of you that think "drifting" has anything significantly to do with the powerplant you're wrong and should be punished for beign a retarded fanboy.
