I saw somewhere someone mentioned not to go too big when installing a performance exhaust...
What is the best size for a stock GA16i?
(I plan to install a Cool Air Intake as soon as I can figure one out, HELP PLEASE)
I am waiting for a set of PaceSetter headers, but they never seem to be in stock, I have heard that there are other headers that are better, but I don't have a lot to spend...
If anybody has part numbers to help in my search...

For exhaust size, I used 2" diameter coupled with a Magnaflow muffler. It made a nice growl but more importantly, it defiinitely increase HP especially on top end. If the sound is a little too much, you can add a free flowing resonator to tone it down. This is also a good time to change the cat converter if needed. I also have a Pacesetter header. It is cheaper than most header available for the GA16 but requires more custom work when installed. If I have to do it all over again, I would go with a Hotshot design instead. The Hotshot header will definitely give you more power because of the better design compare to Pacesetter. You can find many Hotshot copies on E-Bay for a decent price. As for intake, you can definitely fabricate a homemade version with a cone adapter. Just make sure you can shield the filter or place it where it can suck in cool air, away from engine heat especially during summertime.

I have never used ebay, I have had luck with Auto Accessories - Car Accessories, Car alarms, HID Lights, Euro Tail Lights, Altezza Lights, Car Covers, Lowering Springs, Performance Car Parts & more.. It is hard to find anything but PaceSetter Headers, and you have to get the B13 headers and modify them.
I have the MagnaFlow Muffler and HiFlo CAT at home, I will post the part numbers later.
I wish that other users would post the part numbers of parts they have used so that the rest of us can find them easier.
I usually search '1990 Nissan Sentra' to find parts, with mixed results...

OK, so it has been a year, and now the car failed Air Care...
I need to replace the BPT (Back Pressure Transducer) and EGR, but the local parts guy just looks at me with a glazed over look....
Does anybody have any info to help me find these parts up here in BC?

I know for the GA16DE you can keep the bottom half of the Air intake box(stock) which directs air in from behind the drivers side headlight, Put a cone air filter(from napa/shucks/whatever) with a MAF adapter plate of the correct diameter of the cone filter.

It's not completely legit, but it actually works surprisingly well. And it cost me about 49$ in total, and combined with headers it made a nice sound. The GA also has such a damn loud air intake, and the cone made it even louder lol.
