Part of Nissan’s CA family, this classic inline-4 engine overshadowed previous CA18s as one of the elite engines in a line of models built from 1982 to 1994. The 1.8 litre CA18DET sported a 16v, cast iron cylinder block with up to 168 lb-ft of torque.

The domineering CA18DET was the crown jewel of the CA family and enjoyed its golden years powering performance Nissan vehicles in the late 80s to early 90s. The turbocharged version was known for stronger torque characteristics and faster spool at lower RPMs. 

As a perfectly balanced DOTC engine, the CA18DET remains a renowned turbo engine from the Japanese car manufacturer.
