    Why would the major be SN1 instead of E1?

    Any detailed explanation, please.

    E1 requires strong base and ammonia is weak

    Either way, the reaction would be appallingly slow; ammonia is a poor choice of base for E1, and the formation of the secondary carbenium will, in either case, be unfavourable.
