Good Day.

Ive got a nissan sentra LEC 91 model...no power steering...
Im new to this forum and i wanna SETUP my ca for max performance..however to start with..I DO NOT KNOW MY ENGINE TYPE.

as far as i know my engine displacement is 1.3....however when i go to ENGINES at the forum...what i get at the sentra 91 site is a 1.6 ENGINE! not 1.3.

is this right or am i wrong in assuming my sentra has 1.3 engine.

Please help.

If this is a US spec B13 Sentra, it came with 2 engine choices. The 1.6 liter GA16DE or the 2.0 liter SR20DE. Some other markets also got the carburated 1.5 liter GA15D , but none to my knowledge got a 1.3, but I think the Micra may have. Nissan engine codes break down to this : in a GA16DE, Engine family=GA, size= 1.6 liters, D=DOHC and E= electronic fuel injection.

it should say on the driver's door jamb, theres a sticker that has all the cars info (manf. date, color, engine type, VIN, etc) i know mine actually says the engine name (GA16DE).

Sentra LEC?

The LEC was a Philippine model I believe...if you are in the Philippines then the answer could be yes you have a 1.3...

But ,Since you skipped the location in your name when you signed up it makes it difficult to say...


only 1.6 and 2.0's were available in the US..

Yes, youre right BINGO!!!

im from the philippines, and if you say 1.3 then its 1.3, so my engine model should say GA1.3 etc etc??

coz i will start searching this foum to enhancement of that engine, btw, this engine is good, we've got a HONDA CIVIC sporting a 1.6 engine AutoTrans, and my SENTRA 1.3 eats up the Honda in both speed and economy, i wish i could improve on this.

Thanks for your reply though.

The US GA16DE spec is: Family= GA, Size= 1.6L, D= DOHC, E= EFI . But what about the Philippine spec? What does the S mean (GA13DS)?

EFI=Electronic Fuel Injection!

I believe the S may actually stand for carburated engines as that is the spot normally reserved for fuel management in the normal Nissan coding.I also found refrences to carburated GA15DS engines, and know that it does not stand for supercharged (That would be R)

Wouldn't that be a site... a supercharged GA15! I'm sure somebody here would adapt that supercharger to a GA16. Or maybe it'd be the first time you'd hear of somebody swapping their motor to something smaller!
Thanks for the info. I'll keep an eye out myself as to what the S means (most likely carburated, like you said).

hello!
the GA13DS...the S definately mean carby ones.....reason is that the old E13S was having S comes with carby...these are OHC engines so no D for DOHC....13 was 1.3 and E was family....so from here we can conclude that S was for Carby..:) :cool:
Thanxx
