There is available a naturally aspirated E16 N12 Nissan Pulsar in both Sedan and Hatch body shells. These cars will be dated as 1986-on sales. The crankshaft from this E16 engine will fit with standard E15ET rods and custom pistons. These pistons are required to prevent travel of the piston beyond deck height at top dead centre, an effect which will occur if standard E15ET pistons are fitted to the long-throw crank assembly.
Alternatively the standard E15ET pistons can be used with E16 crank and rods. E15ET pistons in this application will require a crown shaving to shorten the distance from crank center to TDC, again to prevent deck height penetration.
