If one finds this motor, would it be a direct bolt on? I mean in regards to engine mounts and other attachments. Has anybody done this? Anyone? I am asking since I have read within the forum that an engine swap with the SR20DE and CA18's envolves a lot of cutting and adjustments to the body/engine bay. So I thought, after reading the Chilton's manual, that the engine's quite the same (at least to me) and that it might be a little less of a job as swapping with a SR20DE/CA18DE.In that case just buy an entire engine and tranny together. Gonna be hard to find but well worth the trouble.
***** There never was an E16 turbo head. You must mean the E15T head. It should say 15M on it. Yes, you would need a ton more parts to make an E15T engine. Yes, the blocks are the same, but the E15T has an additional oil pressur hole drilled and tapped for the turbo's oil feed line. It also has a water to oil cooler mounted where the oil filter mounts. Unless you have ever seen an E15T engine assy up close and personal, you would have no idea how many unique parts they had. Even the front engine limiter mount is different. Instead of a rubber dog bone type mount, it had a mini liquid filled shock absorber type mount. The manual tranny cars also had a larger clutch surface on the flywheel. The E15T used a 200mm clutch, as opposed to the 180mm clutch for the[B11's] and 190mm for the [B12] cars. I've still got my complete E15T engine here for sale. I'm only asking $200 for it, but you'd need to pick it up. I'm in upstate, NY.antdagreat said:i found an e16 turbo head on the internet. if i got this would i still have to get alot of stuff from an e15t
