1600 motor question

I located a motor from a 92 Sidekick. I don't know a lot about this motor or the swap but I'd love to swap out the 1300. the guy knows nothing about it either. It's the 1600 but how do I know if it's the 16 valve or the 8 valve?Thanks,
Pauly

Take off the valve cover and count the number of valve lifters thats the way to check.

Re: 1600 motor question

8 valve engine has spark plugs on side of head next to exhaust ports
16 valve engine spark plugs are on top of the head in the middle.
8 valve has like 80 hp?? I think
16 valve has 90+

This one looks very similiar to the 1300 engine.

Re: 1600 motor question

I got the 16/8v I've been working it and it throws wild power!! But the 16/16 is better but more fragile, down under it's real easy to be several days from help, so I like the stone age carb set up, injected will give better all round performance, but at the tech cost. Whichever you go the 16 kicks the 13's but!!
