TUNING THE NISSAN CA18DET (S13)

Sporting a nice rocket bunny kit and the original little bad boy under the bonnet, this Emerald controlled CA had been sat laying dormant in a south london garage doing nothing and its poor owner was struggling to get it tuned and set up properly. When it first ran on the dyno the poor CA was producing 168hp @ just under 1bar, What the hell ?

I really had my work cut out with this one and knowing it had some life in it after a compression test and good check over it was really time to go to work on the dyno

after 2 – 3 hours of fully setting up the ECU the humble CA lived to see another dual carriageway

Probably one of the best little engines Nissan ever made.

Hail the CA18DET
