Hello all, new to this forum..Ive spent a lot of time lately looking for hopups for my 87 sentra E1.6S and basically find stuff only for the later models Ive already installed a ceramic pacesetter header and have heard mention of aluminum flywheels but cant find any for my application. Does anyone here know where I can buy one? I could machine the OE flywheel but would rather not chance the integrity of the flywheel.. thanks a bunch

Fidanza makes lightened flywheels. They may be able to custom fab you one if they dont already make a B11 version. I dont think it would be that big of a deal to face down the current flywheel in a lathe though. Most machine shops should be able to do it for cheap and save you a few pounds, and it shouldnt affect its strength (within reason).

I went over my car with two different salesman at ultrarev and they were confident that the flywheel will work on my car. I hope they know what they're talking about since its already on its way...I guess the worst case scenario would be return it and machine the OEM unit.

My car now has ceramic pacesetter header with 2inch exhaust all the way back and thats it. Sometime over the next couple weeks I will be doing the carb. most likely the 38/38 webber. I will be running a stock rebuilt head with some mild port and polish and maybe that euro cam I keep hearing about. ( I found it at www.NISMOparts.com for 177 bucks)Does anybody have any first hand experience with it? Will it make any improvement with the setup I will be running? Thanks

I called ultra rev I waited on hold forever but theyre telling me the 1.6L will fit the E1.6S model So I should see it anyday If it doesnt fit I can return it for a full refund.
Ive had the header set up for a couple years I purchased it from a local speed shop in Portland OR. (Radkes)

dont forget that the clutch kit for the E16/b12 is the exact same as the ga16de from 91-94 :) ... if it got the same bolt pattern than the E16... why wouldnt it match ??
