Dude, Box is right! By the time you take getting the turbo exhaust manifold, intake, blow off, & other junk. You still have to buy timers (boost controllers), fab a piping system, sh!t I could go on & on & on. Just get a E15ET with the harness, & ECU. If it does not have the MAF & exhaust manifold ($115.00 for the manifold) get them too. The ECU already has boost timing and all that, though it is factory. DO NOT FORGET ABOUT THE LOW COMPRESSION PISTONS WHICH (IF NEW) WILL CO$T YOU SOME BREAD AND A INSTALL ON THEM WILL KILL YOUR POCKETS! once you start talking about removing pistons you might as well rebuild your friggi'n motor. My best advice is get a E15ET, harness, ECU & install shop! Next if the E16 still plagues you, you can BEEF it up a notch by installing a E16S or E16I head both are the same -OR- you can buy the Nismo E series turbo head ($500.00) & get the euro cam ($150-250.00) and install those with your E15ET swap before you drop it in the car and notice a performance gain. But back on track, swapping in a stock E15ET, harness, & ECU is cheaper than coverting ANY NON-TURBO ENGINE INTO A TURBO ENGINE hands down regardless of WHO MAKES THE MOTOR.
dont want to be rude but the e15et has the nismo turbo head already... it the same they sell has the upgrade for the e16... so it wont help if you interchange the e15et head for the e16 one ... the e15et has the big valve and stuff you need...
Thank you bro, I do NOT want to wear the little cone hat & get clowned on by the fella's either. I did not know that evidently, but that is good to know now that it is the same head. So the 1.6 drivers that buy it are buying a 1.5's head. Though I was told it would work with all E series motors. Is the euro cam the same cam used in the E15ET as well? If it is then I will not need to buy it. I did not tell you I FOUND A SHOP TO DO MY SWAP! 20 MILES FROM MY HOUSE!
The Euro cam is different than the turbo cam. The turbo head will work with the E16 engine but your compression will be way too high, I estimate over 11:1, due to the smaller combustion chamber. You would need different pistons to lower the compression. The Nismo catalog states that the turbo head also has better flowing ports than the normally aspirated heads.
