Its kinda tough, so many variables are controlled by the computer. There's no parts to swap.

there is a sticky about using the ga16i TBI swap... kindda hard taugh, but it will increase the TB bore diameter a bit :)... other than that, there isnt much you can do other than putting a carb.

i know im better of with e16s but for 300 a bad tranny thats not bad at all. i know that the e16i carb wont help much but i just want a little kick before i save up and try to do the ca18det swap again. i just want something that i can have fun with for now. BII man we need to hang out one day so that i can check out your car and see that weber carb. its always good to hang out with old school sentra people

so then it would be better to get a e16s sentra so that i can mess with the crab and upgrade to a z24 carb?

Just swap out the carb and put a weber 32/36 and change all of the jets at least +5 more, if its( 135 -> 140). I had most of the jets im my 32/36 changed to +15 I only left the idle ones to +5 or +10. I you do make this carb swap You might have to get a mecanic fuel pump.
