SR16VE into 98 sentra w/ GA motor?

alright, i'm new in nissan forums, altho i've been a nissan gear head for some time. anyways my question is that i've heard great things and have done much research on the SR16VE from japan, and i wanted to know if anyone has done one, and if so how hard is it, what do i need to do it, and can it be done in my sentra. now i've got a 98 with the GA motor in it. if you could give me some help that would be awesome, thanks. :D

aight, that sounds good, i was wondering how the sr20ve takes to turboing, is it better, wrose or about even with the de? i love the VVL in my GA so i figure that the ve is prob about 10 times better, i was wondering what you redline was, the compression ratio and more specific details like so, on your engine. i think that i'm just gunna go with the larger displacement sr20ve, because i've been reading the prices and there about the same price so y not go bigger! anyways holla back.

ohh, i wasnt aware that they changed the cam lobe profile, thats awesome, so its like a honda vtec then, well it works the same way. thanks for the help, i have to think about what i want to do, i'm tryin' deside NA or turboed, its a hard decsion to make, you make more power with a turbo, BUT theres turbo lag and the motor's life is not as long, so its still a toss up between the 2. thanks.

oh i thought of another question, are the head bolts the same on a VE as they are on the DE, if so can i just change out the head and get a new ecu that will be able to control the variable valve timing? because if i can then i'll get the det motor change the head so that i can have the VVT and not blow the motor to pieces because of the compression. that would be a freakin sweet ass car.
