I had an altima with a KA24, it's a good engine. Not the most refined.
The SE-R wasn't a BAD car, slow but cheap and got good mileage. Sold it when I bought the miata to buy the turbo actually.

I got 110k on this badboy in 6 years. I barely change the dino oil and nothing but a slow window regulator had failed on it. the interior is falling apart, but thats another story.

at the time there were some turbo kits that made decent HP but I think the engine had so many problems out of the gate people stayed away.

But I do agree. Nitrous seems like walking a fine line. I have heard water injection compliments it though:gay:
I dont know. If you use WI with a turbo and turn the boost a few psi I bet you could get 50+ hp and tq out of it.
