Re: Measured 1.6L 16V performance?
Without a doubt the 16V is a GREAT mod. I'm on stock tires and I've stepped off the accelerator at 120mph. I know this because I had a friend who had a 140 speedo follow me. You can still pull hard in 5th regardless of the grade. It's not too expensive if you go an unconventional route and - as stated - find a wrecked Tracker/'kick. Belive me, it's a pretty mindless install and as Whazoo stated, if you can yank your engine you can put a 16V in.
BTW, Whazoo makes fantastic 1.6 valve harnesses!
