Re: I know theres already a post goin about this but..
Here's what I can recommend.
Use the entire early (pre-1995) 1.6 8V head, intake and entire TBI assembly. Add a mid-range cam, header and 2" exhaust, and the 1.3L TBI comes alive and really flies.
While not beating him, I "dragged" LuvMyZuki's 1.6 16V, and it did keep pace, knipping at his heels.
Compared to the stock 1.3 TBI, it's got a lot more cohones. Easy mod. Runs just fine. Still a tad bit rick, but we will experiment with timing a bit more, maybe add a adj. cam sprocket. Might also try putting the 1.3L injector into larger bore 1.6 throttle body and see how that does.
And no matter what folks say about carbs, EFI is better. WHen I put mine on it top, it ran for about 3 mins. before I shut it off. Do that with a carb.
