Any front or rear strut tower brace designed to fit the B13 (91-94 US) chassis should work.

Fronts can be found easily on Ebay and are pretty inexpensive. Got mine there a year ago and has held up fine.

A rear can be found from Active Tuning HERE

Good Luck. :cheers:

Not sure about the E series, but on the GA it fits without any modification (barely) . In process of building my new intake setup now, hopefully will have something cool to show soon ! :thumbup:

If all of the sentras and pulsars have the exact same suspention setup so one would asume that the clearances should be pretty close, if not exact.

I am not. If you'd like me to, i can give you some measurement across my car from strut tower to strut tower. Do you have an underhood shot of your car ?
would be great. i'll do a shot over the weekend and post it on monday.
will make some measurements too.

anyway, the distance is about 102 cm, whatever that may be in inches...

Tom I took a measurement across the struts and I got like 102 cm from center to center of the strut tops.


Sixways, yes I have the Pacesetter shifter in my car. I have my throw adjusted down to like 2 1/2 inches or less between gears and it's great. It is a nice piece and makes the car a lot of fun to drive. I'd recommend getting one while they are still availible. :thumbup:

That one looks slightly different, but it should work. Those bars generally have adjustable end links so you can make it fit exactly.

The only modification I had to do was to trim the drivers side mounting bracket a bit so it would sit flat on the strut tower. The mounting point for the hood prop was in the way a little and it was easier to trim the bracket than to cut the car all up. :)

That setup belongs to MinuteRice. Have not seen him around for a while. He had to mod his air cleaner to make it fit an E series motor. You too?

I forgot to mention that I started my intake finally this week and now my strut bar is in the way as it kinda crosses right over the edge of the TBI opening. I am going to just move the bar to the front of the brackets, get longer bolts, and I made steel spacers to take up the slack where the bar was. Should still do the job and give me enough clearance for my new intake piping. :thumbup:

That's it! How thick of steel spacer you lookin at? How thick would it need to be to clear the E16 filter housing?

Well, I have the GA16i, so not sure how the E16 compares ? Minute Rice mounted his bar towards the rear of the engine bay, I mounted mine towards the front and it just cleared the stock airbox (barely) . I just moved the bar to the outside if the brackets (towards front of car) and put 2 steel spacers in between the brackets for support, and used longer bolts. My new intake is 3 inch pipe, and would have cause me grief. As soon as I pick up some longer bolts, i'll get a picture posted to clarify how I spaced it. :)
