How to improve the performance of a ga 13 engine of a nissan sentra?
Let me tell you that I'm also working on that. :-)..
A nissan ga13ds, since it is carbureted, then it is limited on the amount of modifications that are of good value for money, since some of the top end modifications may cost you the price of a brand new nissan sentra + modifications.
Here are some things I did and are planning:
-Replace the stock fuel filter assembly to a high performance one. (ex. to a High flow air filter, cold air intake, short ram intake, etc.)
-switch to an electrical fuel pump.
-upgrade exhaust system. (performance headers, high flow catalytic converter, larger exhaust pipes, racing mufflers.
-upgrade to a better radiator (aluminum) + stronger and better fans. (a cooler engine runs a bit faster)
-Install an oil cooler again for the same reason of better cooling.
-(just my idea) Buy a performance carburetor. (this may be too costly because you might have have an intake manifold custom built)
-Replace engine internals to race internals for better performance under High RPM.
-Find or custom build racing camshafts to replace your stock. (this will result to better performance at high RPM levels but will not be efficient running the car in a lower RPM range).
You can also improve the performance of the car itself by doing the following:
-carbon fiber/fiberglass/aluminum hood and trunk.
-and any other stuff not necessary to you can be removed to save more weight.
I hope these ideas help.
