well im getting a 88 e16i sentra this weekend for 250 with a bad tranny crack hood and bent back bumper. but the engine is still runing strong. anyways before i do the ca18det swap im going to build the e16i meanwhile i gather the parts for the ca18det swap. what i wanted to ask is there any way of messing with the e16i carb i know you can upgrade the e16s with a weber or a z24 carb but i havent heard anything on the e16i carb can anybody help?

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.

Not really, the power gains are going to be bottlenecked by the 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
