Can 1600 be bored?

I've got the 8v 1600 engine in my Sierra. Can it be bored, and if so by how much? What capacity will this make it? Anyone done it? Results?

Yes, they can be bored.

Add a lowend or midrange cam to it too, for more power.

Can you answer these questions? ...if so by how much? What capacity will this make it? Anyone done it (can you put me in touch with them?)? Results?

Much appreciation,

Jasen

Re: Can 1600 be bored?

Does a cam make a big difference in general. I was under the assumption that cams just make the Sammy idle rough and do not really add alot of power. I have a Weber, Thorley Headers and 2-1/4" exhaust with a Flowmaster muffler....will a cam make a difference in power? Which cam do you recommend?

Yes, a cam does make all the difference in the world.

Only thing is you have to choose, if you have fuel injection and emmissions to worry about, then a wild cam is not going to be the best thing to use.

Yes, all regrind lowend and midrange cams do make your idle rough, but that is because they keep your valves open longer and produce more power.

Some choose to spend the extra money to have their head ported and polished, where as we offer 1.6 8-V exhaust valves along with a low-end cam for even a better effect.

Have the head milled and increase compression, for even more power.

There is a cam for every model Suzuki made from the 1298 to the 1900 V-6 with or without fuel injection, all for more power with or with out emmisions to worry about!
