do any of you guys know if I could get a header and a filter like a K&N for my 89. Would the 88 header fit on my 89?


thanks

You can buy the K&N filter for an 87-88 sentra and do some slight alterations in order to make it fit. As for the header you are out of luck. Your car has the GA16i engine, which unfortunately has been overlooked by just about every aftermarket part developer. To my knowledge the only parts available for the GA16i are a nismo camshaft and kn filter. You can also get a mandrel bent exhuast and some other stuff, but you'd be better off doing an engine swap, cuz for the price you'll pay to mod the GA16i, you could get an engine swap for the same price and get much more power and a better platform to work off of.

A custom header can be made by almost any shop. Pacesetter, Hotshot, DG Racing, and even some local shops will develop and fabricate a custom Header for you... if your willing fo front the cash. ask around.

To make the K&N fit you just need to cover over som parts that would allow unfiltered air under the filter. If you dont want to do any modifying i suggest you email K&N with pictures of you current filter including measurement and see if they have anything similar. I have the 87-88 filter in my car, the pictures of it are here:

There are some other parts available for the GA16i. Let me sort through my links and ill post a complete listing of all the stuff ive found soon.

*****There is a chance that a B13 ['91-'94] header will fit. I have verified that the exhaust port size and spacing for your GA16i and the B13's GA16DE are in fact, the same. The only question left is: Will the rest of the header clear the undercarriage of the B12. My guess is that it will, because both engines oil pans are the same too, [the header has to go under the oil pan]. Mervic, [another member], is interested in doing this too. There is one other small difference: the GA16i ex. manifold has two metal pipes that thread into it. One for the EGR, and the other for the AIV [Air Induction Valve]. The GA16DE only has the single fitting for the EGR tube. You would simply have to leave the AIV valve pipe disconnected. It is an emission control device, and does not affect driveability or performance. Of course, this mod would be for "off road use only!" :D right?

***** Thanks Mirage560, but we are talking about the '89 and '90 B12's with the GA16i engine. The only B12 header Pacesetter makes, is for the '87 and '88's, that have the eight valve E16 engine.
