No JDM engines around either. Guess the engine has been out of production too long, people used to use the GA15 in place of the GA16I that is in the car.

I've heard the GA16DE has the same block but today I read you can't use the pistons as they have 4 reliefs cut in the top of the pistons because the DE head is a 4 valve per cylinder head and the GA16I is a 3 valve per cylinder head.

I know having this engine rebuilt would be costly and that is something my step daughter doesn't have a lot of at the moment.

May be better to find another car at this point and part out my old one. Lot's of good or fairly new parts on it.
