I found the flywheel (its on the way)thanks.. I now need to upgrade the carberation. Does anyone have any experience with this engine (1987 sentra E1.6S) intake? carb? any info is greatly appreciated
Search this forum for weber, 32/36, DGV, DGEV, there's LOTS of info here. I have a 32/36 DGV series Weber, and I love it (I made a custom throttle bracket, big mistake, use the Weber adapter, that's all I really have to add to what has been written already.) There is also a thread called "blownb310's e-series modification lists," a sticky, read that too.


The 32/36 is enough for like 90% of E-series engines (no matter state of tune). But if the idea of dual sidedrafts has a hold of you, I don't know if anyone still makes adapters for them, you'll have to contact someone that specializes in that type of work and get that done. If you do, I suggest getting LOTS of headwork done (you're going to be breathing deep through those sidedrafts) and having some sort of dampening mounts built for those carbs, inline fours shake the somewhat delicate carbs too much. A downdraft (like 32/36 or 38/38) is easier and you can use the stock manifold (although someone adapted a pinto manifold, good idea since that manifold has four runners after the plenum, again search).

All the money you spent on the flywheel probably could have gone to more meaningful modifications, like a "euro" cam, some tires, springs, etc. I don't think the stock flywheel is holding anyone back, but that's just me.

EDIT: I just read this book this can become your best friend. I just finished reading it once through, I'm going to read it again. :D

someone just posted about dual sidedrafts like last week...it is available from some company...starts with a Z?...whatever. SEARCH!
I looked for it, I can't find that search, oh well, I'm not doing sidedrafts anyways.

I found a webber set up 38/38 with adaptor plate I dont want to run duals I basiclly just want to make the car a little funner to drive Im not racing. thanks for pointing out the sticky B11 I appreciate it. I may buy that 38/38 set up today that is unless someone has a better suggestion....
32/36 has better fuel economy (smaller venturis, and its a progressve carb, the 36mm ventrui doesn't open until WOT, when you really need it). A 38/38 opens both 38mm venturis simultaneuosly, better top end performance, but fuel economy suffers (as does low end torque). My suggestion would be if your mostly driving street, get a 32/36, but if you plan on doing some head work, a hotter cam, header, exhaust, and your looking fo rmore power mid-top end, then go for 38/38, although honestly you can tune both to work marvelously on stock/mildly tuned motors, as is the case with most Webers designed for 4/6 cylinder engines.

The strength of Webers is that they are very customizable and can be tailored for ANY application and parts are abundant. Any weber you getr is going to work, the 32/36 DGV series is the most common stock replacement and easiest to make work for most applications, although for out-and-out racing other options are better but more expensive.

Hope that helps.

If you want performance camshaft have yours reground.
Bought that 177 dollar "euro" cam. Was not inpressed, the 242 is advetised not actual. 242 is a nudge over stock.
Had stock cam reground to 262(212 actual).390 lift. that helped out a bit. Cost including shipping(local ups) $60 bucks. Boy did I feel stupid blowing the extra hundred and somthing bucks. Regrind by delta cam Tacoma Wa.
Call em and ask all questions ya want give them engine mods. (head work, carb, exhaust, desired engine rpm range) and they help u pick the best cam 4 your use.

WOW this sound like a advertizzzment !!!

I just know they did me right.
60 bucks for a regrind? I just might do that.

Yeah, I tuned it a little, there's a lot of feel and sound to it, almost old world. Once you have it running though, its heaven, more power, and a beautiful sound too. Use the adapter bracket for the throttle though, I ghetto fabricated my own and I've had problems with it, no sense redesigning the wheel.
