i just bought a 89 Nissan Pulsar with T-tops. honestly i have no clue about this car. my friend came to me and said "i got a new project for you. a 89 Nissan Pulsar. if u can build this crap to beat my 92 teggy LS i will put 'I GOT OWNED BY A NISSAN' stickers all over his turbo'd teggy."

what kinda engine swap options do i have, if any? are the a lot of aftermarket for stock engine? ummm wut is the stock engine GA16DE?

thanks for any help guys!

open up the hood and look at the engine. got no distributor ?? Ca18de. If you got a distributor : He wont be putting any sticker soon.

If you have the ca18de, you can swap a DET into it. search the forum a bit and youll find everything you need to do it. @175hp, 7500rpm redline it sure will kill the teg.

I herd that the CA18DET requires a little bit of custom fabing too. Which really isn't that bad, but that's the same thing that you'd have to do with an sr20.

Note: the custom fabing I'm talking about is the motor mounts.

and you know this from 1st hand experience i suppose?

Well it's a no brainer if the standard engine is a E-16 the SR20 will out weigh it . to add it will not make the nose of the car drag:D Now does it affect the cars performance ? I would say no.

Now you should correct him,But don't be a smarty about it just because you happen to have a sr20 under your hood..... but hey just my two cents. :fluffy:

dont forget the sentra/pulsar was made have a Ca18de under the hood .. also never underestimate the weight of a full cast iron bloc VS the Sr20de all aluminium motor :)

about the custom fabbing on the Ca18det swap is some little cuts to the cross member and some welding/cutting on the front dog bone mount. thats it. the wiring is another story but isnt bad anyway.

Yeah that's what I've been told. But the problem is that I have no welder. I wish I did...

it is still way less involvment into getting the Ca18det in there compare to the Sr20det. a lot more welding involved.
