Nissan GA engine
The GA engine is a 1.3 to 1.8 L inline 4 piston engine from Nissan. It has a cast iron block and an aluminum head. There are SOHC & DOHC versions, 12 valve & 16 valve versions, carbureted, single-point and multi-point injected versions, and versions with variable valve timing (GA16DE). The GA was produced from August 1987 through 2007. Since 1998 it was only available from Mexico.
In the code of the engine, the first two initials indicate engine class, the two numbers indicate engine displacement (in decilitres), the last two initials indicate cylinder-head style and induction type (D=DOHC, S=carburetor, E=injection). In the case of a single-initial suffix, the initial indicates induction type.

The GA16S is a 1.6 litre (1597 cc) SOHC engine with a bore and stroke of 76.0 mm and 88 mm. The GA16S has twelve valves, solid valve rockers, and is fitted with a carburetor. It produces 94 hp (without a catalyst). For some markets, such as South Africa, there was also an eight-valve version which produces 84 hp (63 kW) at 5,500 rpm.
The GA16E is a 1.6 litre (1597 cc) multi-point fuel injected SOHC engine. It produces 110 hp (82 kW).
The GA16i is a 1.6 litre (1597 cc) throttle-body fuel-injected engine produced from August 1987 through June 1990, which produces 90 hp (66 kW). It is a single-cam, 12-valve design, with manually adjustable rocker arms. 1989 and 1990 North-American market Sentras received the hydraulic-rocker version which produced 92 hp (69 kW) and 96 lb·ft (130 N·m) of torque.
The GA16DE is a 1.6 litre (1597 cc) engine produced from November 1990 through 1999. All GA16DEs have 16 valves and DOHC head. There are two versions: the NVCS (VTC), which produces 115 hp (85 kW) @6000 rpm and 110 lb·ft (146 Nm) @4000 rpm and a non-NVCS version (European-spec) which made 102 hp (76 kW). 2 versions of the North American NVCS version exist: earlier motors used pistons with 2 compression rings and 1 oil ring and put out 5 less horsepower, while later GA16DEs have a single compression ring and a single oil ring. The GA16DE shares its block, crankshaft and much of its reciprocating assembly with its predecessor, the GA16i. Some engines have siamesed exhaust manifolds, while others keep the exhausts separated until the catalytic converter. Earlier ECUs contained the fuel & ignition maps on a discrete ROM IC, making retuning relatively easy, later ECUs buried the maps on a larger more integrated microcontroller's firmware, making retuning require the use of a daughterboard.

The GA16DNE is a Mexican-specification 1.6 litre (1597 cc) engine, which produces 105 hp (78 kW). The main differences between the DE and DNE are: the DNE has no VTC and no ECCS plenum. The DNE has a vertical throttle body with an MAF inside; the air filter is diagonally oriented in its air filter housing. This variant also was released in some southeast Asian models (Philippine and Malaysian Sentra B14s)
The "N" in its nomenclature means "New EGI" (emission system), meaning this engine does not have an EGR system like the GA16DE.
Since 2003, the DNE variant comes with a new ECU and 3 oxygen sensors.
