CrazyMart, It sounds like your cam timing is off. I certainly hope this is not the case though. Because if it is, and you cranked it, then you now have some bent valves, probably exhaust valves. Does it have good compression? Good luck! :)

Hi Perf. E16 for sale

CrazyMart, I'm sorry to hear of all your troubles with your used engine. You might have been better off driving a few hours south to my house, and buying my barely used E16 high performance engine. I built this engine a few years ago, it ran great, but then I took it out, and stored it, because I finished building my current .035" over 13 to 1 race engine. Anyway, the extra engine I have, has been bored .5mm [.020"], and features new Nissan Motorsport 10 to 1 pistons, with the matching 15M big valve "Fuel Injection" head [same as turbo head-only thinner wall casting]. Of course all of the bearings, seals, big valves, timing belt, water pump, and rockers are all new. A sweet package indeed. I have stored it properly, indoors of course, and I have oiled the cylinders appropriately. No rusty, greasy, unpainted leaky engines over here Mart! If anyone else wouldn't mind driving to scenic upstate NY, I'd sell this engine for $400. PM me if interested. Cheers!

Come on down guys! :D Sounds like fun. I still have my '83 E15ET turbo engine here too. I think we could have quite a B12 "show & tell" here! You guys might like to come down on a weekend in February, and check out the ice races we have here. I'll take you out for a fast ride on the icerace track, with a GA16DE powered 4WD B12! Cheers :)

hey blownb310 can i get the details on how you built this engine. is that a tbi e16?
***** I built it from scratch, like any good rebuild. I stripped the engine down to the bare block, removed all of the oil galley plugs, and sent it to the machine shop. I had the bare block boiled out, bored, honed, decked, rods and pistons balanced, new oil galley plugs, and had new jackshaft bushings pressed in. I then took it home and ran a rifle cleaning brush through all of the main oil galleries, washed and assembled it carefully, basically per the Nissan shop manual. Then I capped it all off with a brand new Nissan 15M big valve head. No, this is not a tbi engine, I first ran a single Nissan Z24 carburetor on a ported stock intake, and later twin Mikuni side drafts. 'Tis a sweet engine for sure. :D
