I don't believe there was a 1.5 A series, but I could be wrong....
What does it say on the valve cover?
1500 or 1600?

A better way of looking at it would be what is the best swap you can afford/have time/want to do I reckon.

Something out of a Levin (aka Trueno or Sprinter IIRC) might be worth a look (damned if I can remember the engine codes though :coffee: ).

You usually see a bunch of 5afes on eBay. They usually say something like "4AFE REPLACEMENT 5AFE 1.5L". As for a good swap, it depends on your skill and what you can afford. The swaps from easiest to hardest: 4AGE 16v, 4AGZE, 5SFE, 4AGE 20V, 3SGTE. In my opinion, that would be the order of difficulty.

5afe was what the jdm market got. North America got the 4afe.
