Aka-chan KA24E-T Boostin at 7.5 psi


Been mad busy with school, but here’s a new post~ So about 9 months ago, I made a post HERE about wrapping up my turbo single cam project. In the comment section, Ken requested a video of me boosting up in the higher end. So better late than never, this is for you Ken haha.

I don’t drive her much due to school. In fact, I’ve only put 1000 miles on it so far since the complete rebuild and turbo upgrade…

Aka-chan KA24E-T Finished! (Sort of)

よし! It’s been a long time since I’ve posted anything about my 240 so here’s a long over due summary of what I’ve been up to over the last year with Aka-chan! (BEWARNED! This is a really long post!)

Brand New KA24e

In a nut shell, as you might be able to tell from the title, I finally went TURBOCHARGED! Ever since I purchased my 240 back in 2004, I’ve always dreamed about having my car turbocharged. Over the years I’ve saved my pennies, and purchased parts here and there. To give you an idea of how this went, the 3″ turbo Trust downpipe I’m running on my car I purchased back in 2008. Waaaay before I even purchased a turbo, manifold, intercooler, clutch, and all that other necessary stuff haha. So pretty much every now and then I’d just buy things when they’d go on sale during group buys or when they pop up on forums.

Aka-chan update

Hey everyone! Hope everybody has been enjoying Terrell’s Japan trip posts lol. Time for me to post some stuff as well.

So I’ve been home for about 2 weeks now for summer, and I’ve been busy at work on my motor. In case you haven’t caught on from the obscure posts I made forever ago, I’m in the process of rebuilding my old and beat high mileage naturally aspirated single cam motor out of my car…


Spent most of last week redoing the engine harness. Stripped all the old insulation/wrappings off. Continue reading

Mai Waifu // Mod List

I was bored so I figured I’ll write this out about my car. This is Aka. Her name means red in Japanese. She was built in Fukuoka, Japan. She is 22 years old. She is my first car, and still for some reason out of all the vehicles I’ve driven, she’s still one of my favorite cars. I still get a big smile on my face every time I hop in and turn her on. She’s easily the longest relationship I’ve been in, practically mai waifu… haha…

Here’s a list of the the junk I’ve done to Aka since I bought her in 2004 for $900. A Few things are still on the to-do list, but 93% is done or in the process of being done…
