1.6 performance
Anyone ever modified a 1.6 fi for performance (cam,ported head ect) ? Will the computer "freak out" or adapt ? Can I put the 1.6 head on my 1.3 GTi shortblock and still run FI ? Thanks gang ..

Re: 1.6 performance
I dont have your answer 455..but I am interested in any answer you get. I have a 1.6 8V in an 89 Kick that's either going to get into a 95 Tracker body or under the hood of my 88.5 sami. Its got 133K miles but still runs pretty good, however it will likely need some kkind of internal work before long. As long as it's apart like that, I am inclined to put in a mild cam and maybe do a little head work, too.

Re: 1.6 performance
I figure if I don't get a reply, I'll just do it anyway .. I have a 1.3 GTi shortblock that I was going to use on my sami , but found a 2wd 1.6 tracker in need of engine work ..I think I'll use the tracker head , 1.3 shortblock and go from there .. If it doesn't work, at leat I'll know right ?

Re: 1.6 performance
take a good look at the condition of the 1.6 head. I have heard that there are a few issues that commonly pop up with the heads on these motors, such as valve seals.

Tomkat is coming over tomorrow to take a good look at the 89 Kick I have and chekc out the motor. It does all kinda of interesting things..sometimes it blows huge clouds of smoke when you start it..sometimes, none. Some times its really noisy or really rough, and sometimes not. Its weird.

Since Tomkat has professional credentials in this dept, I trust he can get to the bottom of whats up with it and I can find out how much if any work I need to do to it to get it running well enough to transplant to either the tracker or my sami.

Please post what you discover, 455. Thanks.
