1.6 Head

I have searched posts for answer to putting 1.6 head on 1.3. Read a lot of conflicting threads. Does anyone know the scoop? Have fresh head with Calmini cam ready to go. [img]images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img]

Re: 1.6 Head

do it if you like 1.6 heads--i run 1.6 exhaust valves in
1.3 heads bigger valve= better air flow--oldzuki

Re: 1.6 Head

Do you prefer 1.3 head? I heard that the 1.6 rockers are not as strong as 1.3, but not sure. I am concerned about compression ratio.

Re: 1.6 Head

A friend of mine have that setup.
1600 bottom + 1300 head + pony carb.
The 1300 head have smaller combustion chamber wich (should) give more torque.
The 1600 exaust valve in a 1300 head look to be a good think bud need to take the head to a machine shop.

Re: 1.6 Head

I am talking about "1600" head on "1300" block. I have seen threads doing it the other way, but not much on this way.

Re: 1.6 Head

THE MAIN dif between the 1.3 and 1.6 is the valves then its the fuel pump the 1.6 does not provide for it. as for the other i have not heard that. i have heard that the 1.6 connecting rods are weaker and buy the looks of it it is just dont wind it.
we are talking about the 8v because the 16v is way different.

Re: 1.6 Head

Does anyone know if the combustion chamber of the 1.3 head and 1.6 head are the same? Concerned about compression ratio!

Re: 1.6 Head

all i can tell you that the stroke is about 1/2 longer in the 1.6 that's how you get the extra 300cc

Re: 1.6 Head

If the 1.6 head is stock and never been milled , you'll knock the compression ratio down to about 8.6:1 instead of 9.5:1 . Sarge
