No E15e ever been available from factory but its been done ...and IMO yes... atleast my old e16i had the hole predrilled, id figure that every E serie block has the hole pre-drilled... if it isnt done already, you should be able to drill and tap it to where it suppose to be.. ( just like the oil return line on bottom right side front bung on the block... the knock positioning should have a place between cylinder 2 and 3 just underneat the intake manifold.Tee Koo said:I was wondering that has Nissan made E15E engine?
And did all E15 blocks have the place for knocking sensor?
it's possible that you've stumbled upon a nissan oddity. :cheers:Tee Koo said:Okay, I was just wondering that when I had that B11, it had all the injection stuff from E15ET and I didn't know was it original E15E or just E15 with E15ET's stuff.
But interesting thing is that I found dyno sheets from E15E vs. E15ET and they are from our local Nissan importer's databook
Here they are: http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v97/TeeKoo/tehokyrt.jpg
Well, the head of that engine was 15M FI and in all ways it looked original engine (car was in bad shape ):Gsolo said:it's possible that you've stumbled upon a nissan oddity. :cheers:
I opened that engine because I took the nismo head from that E15(E) to my E15ET and that E15(E) really is made for N/A use. It doesn't have places for turbo oil lines. Pistons are also like E15 pistons, but they come really high over the block, so it's definately high comp. When I had that engine working in that B11 it revved like insine. It was not like my N13's E16, it revved a lot faster. If I just little bit pressed gas pedal, rpm raised _instantly_ a couple thousand rpms. It was like two-stroke engine :thumbup:Crazy-Mart said:you know wath i think ??? .... someone had that car before and blowed up the turbo... the guy ended up with intalling a header/downpipe from an E15s instead of changing the turbo wich he surely couldnt afford being over a grand at the dealership... bypassed turbine with some Ca18de pipings.. and voila !! you get a slow running low hp E15 engine with probably less than 55hp...
I would defenitly open that engine up to see if it really is an E15et because it was fitted with the oil cooler and stuff... you can check to see if you got the oil out line for the turbo still on the back of the block and the return line on the bottom front ...looks like an e15et to me.
Might be, he drove it off the road (accidentaly) and straight to the forest where trees made so much damage to the right side of the car that he took it to junkyard.. ...and after two months I bought it. I think that it's not original E15E, but I still wonder about those dynographs and think: "maybe they have made E15E sometime"Crazy-Mart said:must have been fun to drive
It is capable, because then it works just like in E15ET without boost. At least that E15E (if it really was it) had almost the same harness as E15ETs, at least ECU was excactly the same.MyClunkyAss12er said:is the stock e15et harness and ecu capable of running N/A or would it run to rich?
