The GA16DE is a 1.6 L or 1597 cc engine produced from November 1990 through the model year 1997. The series GA of Nissan engines for sale is provided in various forms at GotEngines.com. The GA series ranges from 1.3L to 1.8 L and is a straight-4 cylinder engine. It makes use of a cast iron engine block and an aluminum alloy head. Nissan manufactured both SOHC (single overhead cam) and DOHC (double overhead cam) versions. 12 valve & 16 valve variations, and models with carburetors, single point and multi-point injected versions, and versions with variable valve timing. The GA series was produced from August 1987 through 2007.
There are two versions, the NVCS, (NVCS is an acronym for Nissan Variable cam system, it is found in the GA16DE, and the RB series of Nissan engines too. NVCS is not to be confused with Honda’s V-TECH system which electronically changes lift and duration on demand at high revolutions per minute (RPM) to give higher peak power. The Nissan’s system uses cam phasing to increase low to mid end engine torque.) which produced 115 hp and later 120hp. Two versions of the North American NVCS system were produced, however. The most important internal difference was the change from earlier motors pistons with 2 compression rings and 1 oil ring, to the later GA16DE’s piston setup, which have a single compression ring and a single oil ring.
Being a very popular engine for many reasons, the main ones being economy and reliability. When we examine the applications, it’s easy to see that the main intent was to serve the economy series of Nissan cars for many years. Which it did very successfully.
