Re: Measured 1.6L 16V performance?
Sorry, I have not measured it from 0-60 or the 6% grade.
but I have been driving some steep hills (freeway type driving) but don't know what grade it was, anyway, I have stock gearing and 31's and did not have to drop down to 4th gear, but once and even then it wasn't for long.
also on the freeway I had it peel out when I shifted to 5th and romped on the gas.
and I have been able to leave people in the background when taking off and accelerating on to the freeway.
I have very much enjoyed the 1600 16v engine, it really is a great setup and actually helps get better gas mileage than I was getting with my 1.3 squirrel and hampster engine that suzuki put in there to begin with.
they should have put the 16v engine in there in the first place.
hope this helps.
