b12 engine swap info PLEASE!

HI all my friend has a b12 classic with the E16i and he wants to drop in a ga16de or a sr20de or maybe a ca16/18de..

I am familair with swapping engines ( I put a highport sr into a 95 200sx se)

The thing is I think his E16i engine mounts look different than my ga16de that i have. Do any of these engines drop right in? Do you need to weld in the mount brackets or not?

I know the ga16 and sr20 use the same brackets.

The GA and SR motors will require a good bit of mount fabrication. If you want to drop in a motor go with a CA16DE or CA18DE.

well if the ca series will drop right in I think we might go that route.

im a bit confused. i thought that the ga16i mounted the same way that the e16 did thus making it a drop in if u were upgrading from the e16, no yes>

***** Yes it does, but HaulinSentra said this: HI all my friend has a b12 classic with the E16i and he wants to drop in a ga16de or a sr20de or maybe a ca16/18de..
He asked about a GA16DE. That will go right in but you'll need a set of GA16i mounts. No big deal. But the SR is another story alltogether. All in all, he'll probably be better off doing a CA18DE swap.

do u mean that is easy to put a CA16 in a pulsar with a e16i? b/c i have a 1987 pulsar with a e16i, i really want to find a CA16 and put in, but i am wondering how hard to put a CA16de in my little pulsar? do i have to change alot of my pulsar?

The CA16DE was an option in the '87 pulsar. It will drop right in but there will be quite a bit to swap. Basically everything unique to the CA, ECU, engine harness, radiator, emissions, shift linkage, probaby clutch cable. I'm sure there's more but that's what comes to mind.

It would also be a good idea to upgrade to the AD18VF front brakes from a '88-'90 twin cam pulsar.

oh, is the 88-90 pulsar's break better than other's break? and why you suggesting do a CA engine swap, not a GA? or SR? are those harder than CA engine swap? and i have another question is if i can get a engine with its transmission, is that mean i can drop right in my pulsar for sure?

The 88-90 twin cam pulsar's brakes are the same as the 87 twin cam pulsar but are 10mm larger in diameter. Also you can still run 14" wheels without any problem. The AD18VF on the 88-90 was the largest brake setup available that will bolt onto your car until they came out with the AD22V on the NX 2000 w/ABS. The AD22V is a huge brake system but does not work with all 14" wheels.

I think we're suggesting a CA swap simply because it requires less farting around. Blownb310 indicated you can do the GA swap with a set of GA mounts. The SR is another story, it's been done but is not a drop in affair.

If you can get ahold of a CA and tranny it will drop in your pulsar.

The AD18VF brakes were only available from 88-89 Pulsar SE. The 87 did too like Myetball stated but 10mm smaller in disc size. Nissan stop using the CA engine in 89, so the 90 Pulsars had a GA16i engine and wimpy brakes. Can anyone confirm if the AD18VF brake system was also available to Sentra SE-R and 200SX SE-R's?

yes, because i got hybrid original brake set up which were AD18VFS from his car until i recently had to swap my stock brakes back on so that i could run my stock wheels due to tire wear.

So it is better to source a AD18VF from a Sentra SE-r or 200SX SE-R than the calipers and rotors from the Pulsar SE since they are probably in better condition.

Hi. I have a 1989 Nissan California with E15 series engine and wants to swap my engine with GA13DE or GA14DE. Is it possible and what needs to be done for the GA engine to fit in to the engine bay? Thanks in advance.
