Sami 16v 1.6 swap info needed
Looking for info from any folks having experience with a 16v 1.6 swap:
What year range of Kicks had the 16v?
Id really like an auto/OD combo, was there a 2wd style in the kicks that I can put in to work w/my Sami Tcase?
If so, any specific years to look for that Trans?
Will the rad for the 1.3 work for a 1.6 (16v), or is a better one needed?
I realize I'll need to cool the auto, either by a different rad that supports an auto or an auxilary trans cooler- any input?
I have a GM alt now on the 1.3- move it over or is there a better way to go?
I have yota axles w/4.30 r&ps waiting to go in- can I expect a 16v to be capable of hwy speeds (70-ish) running 33s with an automatic/OD or am I asking too much?
Is the stock 5 spd OD in 5th?
Thanks in advance to anyone answering any of my many ?s
