CA16DE: 87 pulsar

CA18et: 84-87 200sx
CA18DET: don't remember
CA20e: 84-87 200sx
SR20de: 90+ Sentras and 200sx + many others
SR20DET: lots of JDM cars.
I know I got the years wrong on just about all of those
Gsolo said:not to bad...E16i is about 87-88 pulsar i believe and available in 88-90 sentra or so. You also got the E15ET in 83-86 Pulsars available. CA16DE was 88-89 Pulsar. CA18DE was 87-90 Pulsar. CA18DET was available in other world markets in the Bluebird (stanza) and Pulsar. CA20E was the 200sx and Stanza. Sadly Nissan never made a CA20DET but it's been crudely done. SR20DE was avaible in early 90's sentra se-r's, 200sx's, 240sx's, NX2000's...and other markets in the pulsar and bluebird. SR20DET was never in the US, but elsewheres was availble in pulsar GTI-R, silvias, and a few bluebirds, oh and skylines. GA16DE was also in the NX1600. ANything i've missed guys?
If you want I can even get into which trannys you can use for what
Looks like the engine desgnations have all been nicely covered. But to answer your other question about what engine get commonly swapped into a B11, there aren't too many unfortunately. Yes the E15ET, but they are kind of rare and the average enthusiast is usually not up to the required efi wiring needed. Plus with a carbureted B11, you'll also need a fuel return line [of the correct diameter] back to the tank and an electric fuel pump added, etc. An easy swap doesn't really exist. You can build a race engine out of the E16 like I did, but then you'll need to run it on racing gas. Mine is running 13 to 1 Cosworth forged pistons and twin side drafts to enable it to make good power. Not streetable at all though. Plus, twin side draft intakes for E-series engines are quite rare.ReD-DaWg-OnE said:I am not sure, but i think i have figued out that when you guys say B11 you mean the car not the engnie. So what are the diffrent engine designation? What engines do people swap into the B11s and what cars do thouse engines come out of?
Hello Steve and welcome to the boards.yeravgjoe said:I have a 1987 4WD Sentra 5spd and I'm thinking about an engine swap. I have my eye on either the CA18DE from the 88/89 Twin Cam Pulsar, the GA16DE from the 91-99 Sentra, or a 91-01 SR20DE.
I'm curious to know if anyone else has tried a swap with the on demand 4WD system, and if so - which tranny/engine combo would have the most hp potential, and which would be the most likely to succeed?
87 Sentra 4WD

The car should also say either XE or SE somewhere on it. An 88 XE has the E16i I think and the 88 SE has the CA16DE.yellowgurl515 said:okay I see all these listings for what engines I could have...how do I find out which one I have in my 88 Nissan Pulsar without going to a mechanic...I have a blown headgasket and would like to swap out the entire engine as opposed to spending the money to fix the headgasket....could someone please help me...
