Ga16de performance parts ?

Hey guys I'm new to the group. I got my hands on a very clean, very low mile b13 sedan with a ga16de. Was curious what you guys have found for performance parts for the 1.6 and some input on if it's worth building.

Turbocharging seems the most common way to get any power out of this engine. You can Google it, but it might be worth taking a look at this thread:

I've noticed that's been the thing to do. I was more curious to know If it's worth building.

"Worth" is subjective. If you are looking for all out performance, the SR20 engines are the way to go without getting insane. They come in NA and turbo versions and the SR20DE was available in the B13 SE-R, so you know it fits. But, of course that involves harness adaptation, ECM, getting the transmission and shafts, etc. That said, you can get "reasonable" performance out of the GA16DE if you don't mind sinking a little money and effort into it.

Well I honestly wouldn't mind squeezing the ga16de for what it has. I know the sr does fit but like you said ecm swap and transmission. Also I'd like to not hop on that band wagon just yet. My 1.6 in the car has alot of life left. It just hit 84 thousand original miles, on the motor chassis and trans
