Sportka Engine Transplants

7 posts in this topic

What conversions are fairly simple to do into a SportKa,ie pretty much drop straight in? Was thinking good old Puma? But what about 2 litre Blacktops etc?

I know someone who dropped a 2L ST engine in an old KA and it kept up with my OH'S RS haha so could look into that.

I know he's spent a shed load (thousands) on that car though

Would be nice lol but I'm not looking at spending thousands and hoping to do a lot of it myself. Aren't they 150 brake?

He did a lot of it himself lol, yeah but it's been tuned to about 200 and the power to weight ratio meant it was a little pocket rocket!

What's a better option power to weight wise,1.8 or 2 litre Zetec? Do I need anything from other engines or do the drop in as they are?

Anyone have any further or more complete information on this. I'm looking to hillclimb an old KA, but 1.3 litres and 43 horses are never going to cut it. thanks Wayne
