Re: 1.6 DOHC HYBRID
Whell it was cheaper for me at that time. But if I would do it again, I would wait to find a cheap tracker 1.6 16v.
Total cost was about 800$CND, I could do it with a tracker for about 1000$CND
High HP in 4k+ RPM
Near infinite power at 4k+ RPM
light and fast
Not realy a + but still. I used a 323GTX distributor cap to clear the firewall.
lack of low end torque
hard to start bellow -15C
The project is not finished yet. I need to play with a degree wheel to check me cam/crank timing. Im sure they are off a few degrees. That offset could cause the high RPM power that I get.
Brent from trailtough had the same setup, and he made a ?7? degrees offset crank key.
You can ask DannyL about my highway speed [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
All details about that swap is on my webpage, fell free to PM ou email me
