e is the ETA engine 121 HP, i engine is 168 HP or so.
e is just a bad engine dont get one, made for fuel eco, not performance unless you have money.
im doing an "i" swap into my e right now.
then ill be turboing that withing 3-4 months after my swap.

etas are torquey when in good shape. I loved mine. I's are nice too. But they are both good just a little different

e is good, but just not enough power for me.. going from my 89 acura legend to my 86 325... doesnt compare.
so im swapping them turboing.
