You also have an E-Series Engine. Info is available in that forum as well. Talk to Ricebox, he knows lots about the E-Series engine (sorry that i didnt name anyone else. he was the only one that came to mind of the top of my head!)
Thanks stud!!! Well let's see. As stated before your car is a B12 it has the e16i engine with 70hp and 90 ftlbs of torque. It has a single injector located in the throttle body. There are a few mods for the engine but it isn't really a good base for making lots of power. What it is good at is low-end torque and reliablility. The stock suspension for the B12s is actually quite good. The parts availability isn't too bad either. I autocross my car on stock suspension, and it still handles quite well. I can't think of any more things to say but if you have any more questions PM me or post them here. LONG LIVE THE B12!!!
I'm looking into one of these tomarrow at a junk yard. Pretty cool looking little car, the one I'm looking at is auto and the guy that runs the junkyard said it jumped timing. How hard is this to fix? Is is belt or chain? and if the t-belt did break did that frag the motor? The body on the car is excellent along with the interior, engine bay is relatively clean. How strong are the auto transmissions?
i agree, its gonna cost more money than its worth to get the engine back into working order if it jumped the timing. If the car is in good shape see if you can get and SR20DE or a CA18DE from another vehcile and swap those in instead of the engine.
The Autotrannys for the B12 are pretty good. 3 speeds, each gear can be selected by hand fromt he shift lever (i like that feature!). Once you get accustomed to letting off the gas at shifts it opertates nice and smoothly, even at full throttle.
Id personally like to have a stickshift as they are more fun, but you cant beat an automatic when you are feeling tired or lazy.
No word on which is faster though.
Actually, it is the Auto tranny (My first car), and it's got ok power off the line in first gear, but once it shifts into second, the other guy is going to pass you. Hey, so I CAN use my shifter in my automatic as if it were a stick? I've always wondered about that. Will I screw up my transmission?
once you get the hang of shifting the auto stick it gets really easy. After a little practice shifting the auto manually is just like driving a clutchless manual. Like 89Sentra sadi though be really really careful not to hit reverse. That will screw up your tranny...
