Re: 1.6 16V FI.. Can I go with a 1.3 head and a We
Do the 16 valve!!!! BTW, to answer your question, yes you can do that. I did. But I was not happy with the performance. I even had the Isky cam, header, and no exhaust. I was better than the same 1.3 but not much. I regret not going with the 16 valve then, maybe now I wouldn't be bothering with the 4.3L [img]images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img] Oh well, live and learn.
But like everyone is saying, you could have gotten an 8 valve 1.6 and used that block too. Cheaper than a 16 valve. Then again, you could sell that head and FI components and make some money?
Just spend the extra $$$, get a harness, and an external fuel pump. Voila! You're done. Enjoy [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
