yup, but the det on the end of CA18DET means, D = Double Overhead Cam, E = Elctronic Fuel Injection and T = *drum roll* Turbo  ;D

Yeah but the CA18DET has better goodies with it, like twin cams and a turbo :D

Is the JE20 a honda engine? Honda engines face the opposite way in the engine bay and as such would cost megabucks to fit into the U12 chassis.

hrm... i only judged your car being a CA20E from your avatar...
if its a 2.4L, then its a KA24E... nice motor (i got one ;D), if your after a turbo upgrade, you can either custom turbo it, or chuck in an SR20DET...

*also, i thought a je20 was a subaru motor...*

OK, if that's your car in your avatar, both of the pics have pointed to it being a CA20. First the 2-spoke steering wheel and then the (quite clearly) CA20 in your current avatar. GLi and Executive Pintaras came with the CA20E, so did GL Corsairs. All other Pintaras and Corsairs had KA24E engines. Check your car and if it has 8 spark plugs it's a CA20.

JE20 are a Honda motor found in Integras. EJ20 are a Subaru motor found in Imprezas.

Neither will fit easily into the U12, the JE20 because it faces the opposite way (pulleys on the passenger side) and the EJ20 because it's oriented north/south instead of east/west (90 degrees to the original Pintara engine)

If you've recently joined antrx.com, use this area as a 'safe zone' to say 'hi' and tell others a bit about yourself. Much better than starting a new thread.

Welcome Andrew...
we have a fair few engineer's/draftspeople here at antrx (myself being one)...
Congratulations on your new pickup (i always think we could do with more Ti's here - from memory, there are about 2-3 active Ti members, again, me being one  ;D)

there are members from all over the place, so im sure there will be someone close by, look forward to meeting you on the next cruise..

when you pick your car up, be sure to post some pics up

Hey mate,

Welcome to the forums, and well done on the pick up of a Ti. :) Since your from croydon, there's one in NSW but im assuming your from melbourne, been sure to check out the Victorian local chatter forums found here:

http://www.antrx.com/smf/index.php?board=9.0

As to modding your Ti, The engine is actually a KA24E :). There is also a list of "Recommended" by experiance people about what to undergo on your car depending how far you want to go, also found here:

http://www.antrx.com/smf/index.php?board=20;action=display;threadid=1373;start=0#msg13581

For a more detailed one check here:

http://www.antrx.com/smf/index.php?topic=2296.0

Hope they are of good help to you for now, and remember always use the search bar before making new threads in future, you will be very much respected if you do so  ;D

Enjoy ~

G'day my name's Pete (aka dJP), 25 and I live in Bentleigh, Melbourne.

I bought a '91 Pintara Ti in 2003 which had a TRX Bodykit on it and a few other custom mods. To most of my mates' confusion I'm obsessed with my baby and I'm now on the road to making her a keeper. I've got some big plans over the next year or so to do lots of work to both the engine and the interior.

I'm the Senior Applications Developer at a Print Management company in Port Melbourne and I'm an Amateur Producer / dJ in my Spare Time.

I'm Stoked that I found antrx and hope to be a useful addition to the family!
