I have a 1992 sentra with a Ga15DE carburettor engine with transmission.
I would like to install a SR20DE with transmission.
Some advice please.

Millions of words written on this subject regarding GA16 to SR20 swap. Use the
here and on SR20DEForums. Check www.sentra.net and www.se-r.net, too.

needspeed, you're going to find less that applies to you 'cause we Yanks don't get GA15 engines.

in addition to that: axles (abs or non according to your car)
wiring harness
the 2 water sensors (back left side intake manifold)
tps
cross member (easier to get one out of an ser than retrofit your ga one)
accessories (i.e. alt, a/c if you want it, p/s, h2o pump)
o2 sensor
and thats all i've "discovered" so far. i'm putting a JDM sr20 in a 94 GA16de sentra. the sensors are crutial because JDM uses different voltage sensors than USDM. oh yeah, MAF. also, this is for a N/A motor, i don't know about the BB turbo....but all this should be the same. misc. hoses, etc...hope this helps. if i find anything else i'll let you know, and please do the same! i don't want to miss anything! thanks, Mike

I hope I remember everything.

You'll need:

1. the SR right top engine mount. The other 2 existing mounts will line up perfectly.

2. The B13 GA16 gas tank, this contains an electric pump in the
tank.

3. SR20 axles for the B13(make sure its the correct length these axles can fall off if it doesnt lock), this is solid and designed for the higher torque.

4. THIS IS IMPORTANT!: Ensure you get the engine (p/steering pump, alternator etc.) complete with the harness and ECU box. This will reduce headache.

5. You'll need to stop: SR front rotor and caliper(can be installed in your existing spindle), this is bigger and slotted. It is also wise to install disc brakes in the back.

6. you'll have to re-do the a/c.

7. compatible transmission even better if it comes complete with the engine then you wont have to worry about the signal jacks fitting.

8. Use the temperature gauge sensor from the GA15. The SR sensor wasnt working in mine...different circuit resistance I think.

9. If the transmission shifter bracket connection point is on the right side of the L bracket you'll need to move it to the left for your original shifter cable to work.

Well get started then. Ill give you some advice though, dont just through everything together. Take your time and remember that its much easier to work on an engine when its out of the car. So spend the extra money and replace anything that COULD need replacing.
