what kinda lift for a 1.6?

G'day folks,
just wondering how much/what kind of lift I need to run so that I can swap in a 1.6??? I know you need 2 inches is that body or suspension? Will a SPOA set up do the trick?

Thanks

...yeah it's good on gas, kinda hard on oil though!!!

Re: what kinda lift for a 1.6?

ill give it a shot from what i remember, if you modify your 1.3 pan, you wont need any suspension lift, but if you use the 1.6 pan like i did, you will need several inches, dont remember exactly how much, i was already spoa so it didnt concearn me. if your going to use the 1.6 efi, you will need approx a 1in body lift to clear the efi, have heard tell from others that a BFH will adjust the hood to clear it, but you can also flip the factory body bushings to give a inch or so.

Re: what kinda lift for a 1.6?

SPOA will clear the oil pan real good, the only other thing to watch for is your air box hitting the hood. Depending on wich one you use you might need a 1" or more body lift. I am useing a carb and will not need a body lift.. Hope this helps ya!

Re: what kinda lift for a 1.6?

I'm also SPOA, so oilpan wasn't an issue with me. I run a Weber carb with a larger air filter (2.5" tall) and that wouldn't clear under the hood. So I just got the smaller filter (1.75" tall) and it fits just fine. The distributer cap and plug wires will be up higher - just watch that they don't get pinched or rub on the hood. The entire motor is about an inch or so taller.

I run a spoa and just a little 1 -1/2 inch body lift. My webber's air filter just slightly rubs on my hood.

Re: what kinda lift for a 1.6?

Back about 7 years ago I tried to install a 1600 in a non lifted Samurai. The oil pan clearance is only about 1/2" at the most. I think with 3" lift springs and a 1" bump stop extension you might be ok.

FYI, I ended up modifying a 1300cc Samurai oil pan to fit.

Re: what kinda lift for a 1.6?

This is a great article I found on Sean DeVinney's (Aftermarket4x4.com) web site: http://members.home.net/aftermarket4x4/curr_proj.html I loved the idea so much that I am having the same done to my mounts-oil pan not an issue with SPOA
