Re: Measured 1.6L 16V performance?

My hybrid Swift GTi motor has more oomph than my buddy Adam's 8-valve 1600 (which also has a Weber, cam, and exhaust) and both of our motors were rebuilt less than 20,000 miles ago. In addition, my motor has about double the RPM range to work with so I can hold gears longer than he can and make use of that mechanicanical advantage too. I think a 16-valve 1600 would out-pull it though, plus it'll have more torque in the lower RPM range.
