the first engine is a twin cam(GA16DI?), has two cams but appears to be throttle body injected, never seen this varian before, the second looks like a GA15s looking a the distributor with its vacuum advance, what you want is a GA16i. Both ofthese listings are wrong ifI'm not mistaken.

i even told the one guy i need a ga16i
GA is the engine 1.6 is displacement
he tried to tell me the "i" didnt matter, the i means TBI right?

as for my engine i blew my timing chain,
do we have colision engines? if we do
i did some good damage to the top of the engine.
but mainly it has 181,000 miles on it.
for the cost of a timing chain work and potential engine work.
i figured might as well get a new engine.
do you have to lift the engine to get to the timing chain?
but anyway the old engine is tired.
be nice to find a Ga16i in good shape.
looking to spend @ $250-$400

this one does look like a ga16i look @ the valve cover
and where the plugs are

although it says its a replacement engine for a 89-90 he says this in the auction.
"HERE WE OFFER JDM USED ENGINE CALL GA15 =1500CC REPLACEMNET ENGINE"

i called him he says its a single cam 12valve. and that it will bolt right in.

Wonder what the HP/Torque comparison of the 1.5 to the 1.6 is ? I see these 1.5 motors all over the place. :rolleyes:

Guess we were the only ones that got the GA16i ?

If I'm right (which I'm probably not so don't trust this completely) but possibly the GA16i is completely discontinued so they put these out in case someone needed a replacement

And I think I heard somewhere that they're pretty comparable to each other in power.

A carbed GA.?.?.?. Has a lot of potential. It should be easy to ditch the ecu and slap a biggie carb on it.

Hey omnimedia, my pulsar was just totaled why not buy it and do a whole driveline swap? its got around 110k on it but it is rated at 120 hp, and should go in easy........$500 will get you the whole car minus the seats and maybe the front tires......
88 pulsar NX SE... CA18DE, 5 speed
still runs great.
she comes on pretty well at 4k Rpm and up. pm me if so ....
:)
